Our priority has always been to provide the happiest and healthiest home environment for him, and right now that means ending our romantic relationship.

“My only interest is for the well-being of our family at this difficult time so I ask that our privacy is respected and I won’t be saying anything further,” he added.
Announcing that she would be taking a break from social media for the time being, Eiri wrote on her Instagram story: “The next chapter of my life is surely going to be an incredibly difficult one.
“I would appreciate that people would refrain from commenting, speculating or messaging. I have shared so much of my life, but for now I’m choosing privacy and I hope that you will respect that.”
