It looks like football-player-turned-morning-talk-show host, Michael Strahand and former model-turned-reality TV star, Nicole Murphy, won’t be making it down the aisle.
A rep confirmed to People that the couple have ended their five-year engagement saying:
“They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain their relationship.”
The news, which I’m sure is not new to them but certainly is to us, comes at a bit of an awkward time as it is just a day before the former New York Giant will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Murphy and Strahan started dating in 2007, both having been divorced. Murphy, 46, was famously married to Eddie Murphy and Strahan, 42, was previously married to Jean Muggli and Wanda Hutchins.
After two years of dating, Strahan popped the question and gushed on “Good Morning America” and “Live! with Kelly and Michael” about their union.
“I have a great relationship and she’s a great girl. I don’t like to talk much about my private life, but I’m really happy.”
Sadly, they couldn’t make it work but the bright side is they didn’t make it down the aisle before they realized it wouldn’t work.
Hoping for the best for both of them.
