They've been together for nearly 9 years and were planning to get married, but it wasn’t meant to be. Jillian shared the news on Instagram, writing in her post:

We’ve found we’re better friends and parents living apart than staying together.

And now, they are finally making their separation official.

The final split

If anyone had hopes that the two would get back together, these hopes have been dashed. Heidi has filed documents to end her and Jillian’s domestic partnership, TMZ reported on Tuesday.

No rush to be back in the game

In September, a few months after the separation announcement, Jillian spoke to Us Weekly. She said she’s satisfied with being single and is in no rush to get back into the dating game.

The fitness guru told the magazine:

I feel like I am going to take a beat on the dating thing. That is a special slice of hell. Heidi remains one of my best friends and coparents. But the dating thing is like, yeah, that sucks. Wow.

She added that she has little time to think about dating and taking care of her two kids is her top priority.
