Biggest Loser’s couple and former contestants Sam Poueu & Stephanie Anderson have parted ways, and with a baby on the way. It is sad but it has been reported that they split just two months before the little one id due.
“It is with great sadness that my marriage to Sam Poueu is ending,” Anderson tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
The couple did meet on the season nine show and then were married on Wednesday, April 2002, but now it seems as if they are headed for a divorce, as of yet no papers have been filed.
Twenty eight year old Poueu had proposed to thirty three year old Anderson, which had been during a special episode of the Biggest Loser in 2010. Before their wedding, Poueu had suffered serious injuries after a fall from the roof of a four story building in 2011 and spent nine months in recovery. Shortly after, he admitted to Anderson that “he wanted to have children and grow old with me,” she said at the time.
The couple announced in January that they were expecting, the child is said to be a boy and is due in July.
