UPDATE: People has confirmed, via statement from the couple, that Chris Harrison and his wife, Gwen, are indeed separating. Says the joint statement: "Though we have made this incredibly difficult decision to separate, our love and mutual respect remain, and we look forward to sharing in the lives of our wonderful children."  


Thursday, May 3: The fact that most Bachelor/ette couples don’t make it isn’t too shocking a fact for fans. But this latest reported split might just cause jaws to drop, after all.

After 19 years of marriage and two children, none other than Chris Harrison and wife, Gwen Jones, have called it quits, reports In Touch.  While the exact reason has yet to be revealed, a source told the mag that the split “has been really amicable.”

Apparently, the two have been separated for awhile, and Chris has been shooting Season 8 of The Bachelorette during this big change in his life, unbeknownst to most except “their close friends,” reveals the source. “Chris has been a total professional while filming,” they add.

It breaks our hearts to think that our beloved Rosemaster and pseudo-therapist of emotionally unstable Bachelors and Bachelorettes has been dealing with his own relationship woes for some time. Here’s hoping he has his own Chris Harrison to turn to when things get a little difficult.
