After nine years of marriage, Ian Ziering and Erin Ludwig end the relationship, the star confirmed on his Instagram. Ian decided to release his own feelings about the end of his marriage in his own words after reports swirled about the reasons for their split.
“It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Erin and I are splitting up, he wrote on his page. “With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart. She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mother to our kids.”
Ian chose to focus on his little girls ‘ well-being. “It came to my attention that things are being written and said that a situation that is clearly not sensational should be sensationalised,” he added. “Any quote attributed to me is totally false and solely meant by haters to undermine our intention to continue to get along, protect and raise our daughters, and be examples of successful co-parents. At this difficult time, we ask you to respect our privacy as we focus on what is important to us, our girls.”
This is the second marriage of Ian. He had previously been 5 years married to Nikki Schieler, and this is the first marriage of Erin. MIA, 8, and Penna, 6, shares two daughters together. Erin also shared her feelings with her own Instagram page and revealed the divorce in her own way.
“I mean, it is kind of hard to choose an announcing your divorce picture, so i just went with my favorite one of myself?” She captioned an image of herself drinking coffee on the beach. “Ian asked for a divorce after 9 1/2 years of marriage. I knew that it was time to give up after asking multiple times. Knowing that I’m not the person to make him happy makes the situation feel more peaceful.
The girls and I are doing great things and finding gratitude and support together and rebuilding in our new life. Thank you to everyone who has been reaching out and I am sorry if I do not get a chance to respond right now. I appreciate your love and the sisterhood of women who surrounds me during this time.”
