The HGTV stars, who've been married for seven years, announced their split Monday, stating that their professional bond is still going strong.

“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” the pair revealed to People. “We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed.”
