Chris Harrison has now become a bachelor himself. The Bachelor host and his wife, Gwen, have announced their separation to People magazine after over 18 years of marriage. The couple personally confirmed the news in a joint statement on May 3, which read: ""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.""
And while no specific reason for the split was given, Harrison, 40, was accused onscreen of hitting on a producer's wife back in February 2010. Perhaps there was some truth to that accusation. It's always sad to see a couple split, though, especially when kids are involved. The pair share two children together: Joshua, 9, and Taylor, 7.
Harrison is still scheduled to host the new season of The Bachelorette, which will premiere May 14 on ABC. We wish him and his ex the best of luck.
