Lauren Alaina and Alex Hopkins, her long-time boyfriend, have made the decision to call off their engagement – ending their six-year relationship.
News broke on Monday (January 21) with both parties taking to their Instagram accounts to share the news.
“While we still have love for each other, we’ve grown into very different people over the last six years. We are now in a place where we are each looking forward to starting our own fresh, new chapters of our lives. We both love and respect each other and hope you will all do the same. This has not been an easy decision, but we both feel it is the right decision.”
News of the couples split was Alaina's first post to social media after posting that she was taking a break from the platform earlier this month.
