It’s over for another single woman and her significant other.
However, this relationship took much longer to fall apart than most other relationships associated with that franchise.
Via Instagram on Thursday, DeAnna Pappas announced that she was divorcing her husband of 11 years, Stephen Stagliano.
“It is with great sadness that Stephen and I have decided to end our relationship as a couple,” the former Bachelorette star wrote on Jan. 19, adding, at the time:
“We have worked very hard as a couple and as individuals for a long time and have come to the conclusion that we are going to separate.”
Of course, this is sad news.
But I wish the best for everyone involved.
Pappas and Stagliano met through the latter’s brother, Bachelorette alumnus Michael.
They married in 2011 and are parents to nine-year-old daughter Addison and seven-year-old son Austin.
“We will continue to be loving parents to our beautiful children, Addison and Austin, and raise them together in love and faith,” Pappas continued.
“During this difficult time as we navigate the new normal, we ask that you respect our privacy.
“Thank you dear friends and family for your constant support and many prayers during the most difficult times of our lives.”
As a quick refresher:
Pappas rose to fame as a finalist during the 2007 Brad Womack season.
The following year, she was named the actual Season 4 Bachelorette… ending her engagement to Jesse Shinsak.
However, the couple broke up later that year.
In 2015, the mostly private pair opened up to People Magazine about the joys of parenthood.
“We can’t really prepare you for what it’s like to have kids and how your life will change, but we say we’re really good at it,” Pappas said at the time. “We are a really good team.”
Added staliano at that time:
“People talk about being a mother, being a father, being a parent, but nobody prepared me, at least in my experience… [falling] I’m more in love with the side of DeAnna and her teammates.
“It’s true. Your marriage is greatly enhanced because you literally become a team.”
