One of Silicon Valley's most well-known power couples, Google co-founder Sergey Brin and 23andMe co-founder Anne Wojcicki, have been living apart for several months, AllThingsD reported.

They have been married for six years and have two children together. The chances of a reconciliation are unclear, as Brin is romantically involved with a Google employee, according to sources.

"While many might assume that the split potentially affects Google—where Brin shares majority voting control of the company with his co-founder and CEO Larry Page—that is apparently not the case," AllThingsD reported.

Sources say the couple, who have not yet legally separated, have a prenupital agreement and that there would be no material impact on the tech giant if the pair were to divorce.
