Not every moment in life can feel like a victory.

Sadly, Mark Steines  who hosted Entertainment Tonight until last year and now hosts Hallmark Channel's Home & Family  and Leanza Cornett, his wife of 17 years, are separating, according to Us Weekly.

The couple have two children: Kai, who's 10, and A.J., 9.

"After a great deal of thought and consideration, we have decided to dissolve our 17-year marriage," the couple says in a statement. "At this time, our concern is for our boys as we help them with this difficult transition. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time." 

The couple married in 1995 in Hawaii. In '93, Leanza had been crowned Miss America. 

We wish these two and their children the best during this difficult time.
