Lauren Alaina and her fiancé, Alex Hopkins, have called it quits.
The couple, who have been together for six years, took to Instagram on Sunday night to reveal that they have chosen to separate as a couple and focus on their own individual selves for the first time since high school. The post comes 15 days after Lauren shared that she would be taking a hiatus from social media.
Read the shared statement below:
Lauren captioned her photo "We ask for grace, compassion, and respect in this time. I don’t regret a single second with Alex. I wish him the very best. Please do the same," while Alex said "Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” As badly as we wanted to make it work, and as hard as we fought to stay together, she and I just weren’t a part of each other’s perfect plan for our individual lives. And that’s ok. She and I get to focus solely on ourselves and our different futures for the first time since high school. Sometimes what we want and what God has for us is 2 totally different things. Just trust that no matter the outcome, everything works out for the betterment of your life.
