Katie and Blake both announced the split on social media.
“It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways,” Katie captioned. “We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently.”
She added, “We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. Both of us will forever want the best for one another and ask you to please support us in our decision.”
Blake wrote the same exact statement on his own account.
During Katie‘s season, Blake was not part of the original cast, and joined in episode four, before making it all the way to finale, where he proposed to Katie.
