As the new “Bachelorette” Clare Crawley starts her quest for love, alum Ashley Hebert’s has come to an end.
Hebert, who was featured of Season 7 of “The Bachelorette,” announced on Instagram Wednesday that she and husband J.P. Rosenbaum are ending their marriage after eight years.
“It is with a heavy heart that I share with you that, after months of separation, Jp and I have amicably decided to go our separate ways,” Hebert captioned a picture of the couple slow dancing together.
She continued: “We created the most beautiful children and shared memories that will never be forgotten. Our differences have taken a toll on our relationship and after years of attempting to repair the damage, we’ve decided that it is in our family’s best interest to create new and separate lives for our children.”
In a post to his Instagram, Rosenbaum added that there is “no one to blame.”
“Please please please know that there is no one to blame, that there’s no event that triggered this decision, that no one is the victim, and that we’ve done absolutely everything we possibly can to try to salvage this marriage”
Hebert and Rosenbaum first met on the ABC dating competition in 2011. Hebert gave her final rose to Rosenbaum and the couple tied the knot in December 2012, becoming the third-ever “Bachelor” franchise couple to make it down the aisle.

Speaking to USA TODAY in 2012, Rosenbaum reflected on having a reality wedding show after the two met on a reality dating competition.
“I think there are very few people in this world who get to have a fantasy wedding, the wedding of their dreams,” he said, adding if they passed it up, they figured “20 years from now, we’d look back and say, you know what? We should have done it. We were given a gift; why not do it?”
The two share son, Fordham, 6, and daughter Essex, who turns 4 in November. in 2014, they revealed their first child’s gender live at a taping of “The Men Tell All.”
“I knew all along,” Hebert told host Chris Harrison afterward. “I said, this feels like a boy. Mama’s intuition.”
