“We appreciate all the love and support over the years, thank you.”

Fans flooded the comment section with love as they wished the pair the best.

Another fan commented: “Thinking of you both. No doubt it’s a difficult time for everyone and one that will take time before you find your new normal. Be kind to yourselves x”.

Not long after Isabella’s announcement, Moana shared her own statement to her Instagram stories.

“Bell and I have separated. I understand that I live a public life and people may have questions, and whilst I live my life candidly, my main priority at this time is our beautiful children and I ask that you respect my privacy. We will continue to co-parent as we transition to this new phase of our lives,” she wrote.

“I appreciate all the love and support I have received.”

Fans were suspicious in early May.

In early May, eagle-eyed followers noticed an almost indiscernible change to both Moana and Isabella’s Instagram bios, both women removing their wife’s name and the ring emoji. Now, their bios simply read “Mummy to Ahi & Svea,” and “Mummy to Svea and Ahi” with a number of emojis.

At the time of speculation, fans were quick to comment on the changes, commenting that “love is officially dead if this is true.”

“These two were the real deal. This sucks. Mostly for their kiddos,” one follower lamented.

The pair married in August 2019, and share a daughter Svea whom Isabella gave birth to, and a son Ahi, whom Moana gave birth to with the help of sperm donors.

Documenting their IVF journey and life as a rainbow family online, the couple has amassed a devoted legion of fans who have followed the family through all their highs and lows.

The couple have recently returned from a family trip to Japan, and in recent months wrapped up renovating their home after purchasing it in July 2021.

“I’ve worked full time since I was 17 and we have been saving every cent we could. Growing up, the only way I thought I’d ever buy a house is if I won the lotto. We would have bought a bigger house but Vinny [Moana’s disabled sister] refuses to pay rent so…. 🤣 Bring on the house reno’s. 🏡 👩‍👩‍👧‍👧 #wedidit #home #family #thesemoments,” Moana wrote in a happy Instagram post at the time.
