“It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate,” he captioned his post at the time. “First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity,” he added.
