The seventh season of The Bachelorette ended with star Ashley Hebert accepting contestant JP Rosenbaum’s marriage proposal.

The couple wed on December 12, 2012 (in a ceremony that was televised on ABC) and according to Glamour.com, they ended up living in Princeton, NJ. Rosenbaum worked in New York and Hebert worked in Philly, so Mercer County was the perfect spot for them.

Celebritybabyscoop.com reported that the couple moved to Miami in 2014 and in 2018, people.com featured pictures of the couple renewing their vows in a ceremony in Aruba.

Then, just last week, Hebert announced on Instagram that the couple has split after 8 years of marriage.

In the post, Hebert said, “It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that, after months of separation, Jp and I have amicably decided to go our separate ways.”

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that, after months of separation, Jp and I have amicably decided to go our separate ways. We created the most beautiful children and shared memories that will never be forgotten. Our differences have taken a toll on our relationship and after years of attempting to repair the damage, we’ve decided that it is in our family’s best interest to create new and separate lives for our children. Please respect our privacy as we move forward with the newness of our lives. Our ultimate focus is to create stable and healthy lives for our children. Thank you for your love and support throughout the years. Wishing you all love, happiness, and good health. ❤️
