"It is with much thought, prayer, and love that Heidi and I have decided to separate as husband and wife.

While this may come as quite a shock to many of you, please know that this decision was made over the course of many months on a quest to create the best dynamic for our modern family, and we are now in a great place."

"We promise you the relationship between us will only continue to strengthen, and over time you’ll realize that what we have is more than just a marriage.

It’s a true and beautiful life partnership—one we are both incredibly grateful for.

Thank you for loving us...exactly as we are.❤️"[12][13]
