Kaley and Karl got married in a romantic outdoor ceremony in 2018 which included a horseshoe floral installation, monogrammed burger buns, a shoe shine station and a beauty room from Sephora for guests to refresh throughout the day. 

However, they split after three years of marriage, stating their "paths have taken us in opposite directions". 

"Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions," they said in a joint statement.

"We have both shared so much of our journey publicly so while we would prefer to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be forthcoming in our truth together. There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary."

"She [was] like, 'Oh my God, I think you guys are perfect for each other.' We met at the Ozark premiere, and I was standing with Andrea and Tom walked in, and I heard his voice, and I turned around, and it was like my life was over, or just starting," Kaley previously told USA Today.
