It’s the end of the road for Jillian Barberie Reynolds and husband Grant Reynolds.
“It is with great regret that my marriage to Grant is ending after more than six years. He is a special man and we have two amazing children together,” she tells PEOPLE.
“This was a mutual decision that was not taken lightly and we are committed to our children and will work together to ensure their happy and healthy upbringing.”
The pair wed in 2006 in an intimate backyard ceremony, which was a surprise even to her then-Good Day L.A. co-host Steve Edwards, when she announced the happy news on air.
“He’s just the love of my life,” Jillian, 46, said at the time. “I’m so in love with this man!”
