A former “Bachelorette” star just revealed surprising news about her marriage. DeAnna Pappas didn’t find her husband in front of reality TV cameras, but their marriage came about through “Bachelor Nation” connections. However, now the relationship has changed, the couple officially broke up.

Pappas first found love when he was part of the cast of Brad Womack’s first season as The Bachelor, which aired in 2007. ‘ and she ended her journey engaged to Jesse Csincsak. However, the couple’s engagement didn’t last long. Eventually, Pappas fell in love with Stephen Stagliano. He himself has not yet been a candidate for a “Bachelor Nation” show. However, he was no stranger to franchise fans either. His identical twin brother, Michael Stagliano, became a fan favorite during Jillian Harris’ season of The Bachelorette. Pappas and Stephen met through Michael and, as Us Weekly noted, the couple married in October 2011. However, they have now revealed their fairy tale seems to be over.

On Jan. 19, Pappas shared a statement regarding their marriage on her Instagram page. “It is with great sadness that Stephen and I have decided to end our relationship as a couple,” revealed the former Bachelorette. “We’ve worked hard for a long time — both as a married couple and as individuals — and have made the decision to stay apart,” she added.

Pappas noted that they “remain loving parents to our beautiful children, Addison and Austin, and will continue to raise them together with love and faith.” She asked people to respect their privacy during this time of transition and thanked those close to them for “your endless support and many, many prayers at the most difficult time of our lives”. Stephen has an Instagram page, but he rarely posts on it. As of this writing, he hasn’t shared anything about the breakup.

Pappas’ Instagram post was flooded with support from Bachelor Nation. Within hours, thousands of people “liked” the post to show their support and hundreds added comments.

“I love you,” commented The Bachelorette’s OG star Trista Sutter.

“I love you both and am here for you in any way I can. Sending love to your family,” added Ashley Hebert, who went through her own split from her former ‘Bachelorette’ husband JP Rosenbaum in 2020.

“Sending love and prayers to the entire family,” wrote Holly Julian, another former Bachelor Nation contestant. She had dated Michael for some time before meeting her husband, Blake Julian, on Bachelor Pad.

Other Bachelor Nation entertainers such as Bob Guiney, Courtney Robinson, Ashley Spivey and Kaitlyn Bristowe also expressed similar support. Fans, both on Instagram and Reddit, expressed their shock at the news.

“I saw speculation a while ago but I didn’t want to believe it. I’m sure it’s the best decision for her, but it’s still brutal to listen to,” shared one Redditor.

“I don’t follow them on social media, but this one surprises me. Again, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors. I think maybe similar to Ashley and JP, couples just grow apart sometimes. I wish them all the best,” added another.

“It actually shocks me. I don’t follow either of them closely, but they seemed like a pretty standard, down-to-earth couple. I wonder what made the camel’s last straw,” asked another.

“I was blown away when I saw that. I never expected it from them. Too bad :(” commented another Redditor.
