Most fans of The Bachelor have been expecting news of a split from Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik, not Chris Harrison. Unfortunately though, the handsome host of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette announced yesterday that he and his wife of 18 years, are splitting up. Maybe Chris should be the next Bachelor? Read on for the scoop!
The Bachelor host Chris Harrison will the next one looking for love as he has split from wife Gwen after 18 years of marriage. The 40-year-old host and his soon to be ex-wife issued this statement to People Magazine yesterday: “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.”
Apparently, the couple have not been “together” for a while now, a source told In Touch Magazine, adding: “They are still really close and remain the best of friends. They’ve been taking turns with their kids so they can both see them as much as possible.” Chris Harrison and his wife Gwen have two children, 9-year-old Joshua, 7-year-old Taylor, both of whom love having such an involved father. Gwen gushed back in 2010 about what a great father Chris Harrison has been, so we have no doubt that he will continue to be involved in the lives of his children, despite the split.
