Love Is Blind’s Danielle Ruhl, Nick Thompson Split, File For Divorce
The last remaining couple of season 2 of Love is blind called to leave like Danielle Rühl filed for divorce from Nick Thompson.
We Weekly can confirm that Ruhl filed for an end to her marriage to Thompson in Cook County Circuit Court in Illinois earlier this month. The duo have yet to publicly comment on the split, which comes after celebrating their first wedding anniversary in June.
Last month, Ruhl exclusively said We Weekly that the duo were looking forward to having children but planned to focus on their relationship for the “next two years”. She also said the couple wanted to walk down the aisle again after getting married on the Netflix show.
“On our two – or three year – anniversary, we really want to do a reception again to make sure that all of our families can be there. For example, I have always dreamed of my dream wedding, planning my wedding and having a bachelorette party. And so we do it all again. It’s like when we have time,” she said on July 21. “We didn’t question the wedding decision, but I do remember that we, in fact, in the pods, have made a list of things we wanted to do after the show ended. And one of the first things was to go to this restaurant, and we sat there and looked around. [and] we wait for someone to tell us what to do. It was funny, like, even at our wedding, we were like, ‘Are we supposed to cut the cake?’ Like you feel like you need permission to do [things].”
Fans watched Ruhl and Thompson exchange vows in the Season 2 finale of Love is blindwhich began streaming earlier this year. Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones were the only other couple to marry. They announced their own split on Wednesday, August 17.
“After careful consideration, we are saddened to share that we have separated and are about to begin the divorce process. Although we have love for each other, our lives are going in different directions and this It doesn’t matter. Making this decision was far from easy and we will always wish each other the best,” they wrote in a joint statement. “We hope you will all give us some space as we close this chapter in our lives. Thank you to our close friends and family for loving us both through our experience. To the Love Is Blind family and Netflix, thank you for this unforgettable opportunity and support.
The duo concluded, “Each of you has brought overwhelming love and joy into our lives. This experience taught us a lot about ourselves, vulnerability and love. We have no regrets!”
Fans should watch the two former couples alongside their teammates on Love is Blind: After the Altar Later this year.
