“So she, I mean, she was there to really save my life, in a time that was incredibly tumultuous, a lot of transition, didn’t know which way to go and was a bit fair, without the game as a cathartic anchor around me on the floor every day, I was just really everywhere, ”the silver fox explained.

And it led to a very bad state of just feeling super down and not wanting to get out of bed. And no one really knew because I could act and pretend everything was fine, ”he said.
“So we met and fell in love really fast because we needed each other. Her parents split the month we met. You know, we took turns saving each other. And of course there was chemistry and passion and attraction and all those things that come at the beginning of a relationship, ”said Kyle.
“And then, you know, when we got into it and had kids and watched a decade of life together, you know we’ve been really bad for the past three or four years to be married.”
Co-parents: Kyle said the ‘decision to end the marriage’ came from a place of love for each other, as a positive transition for our children. ‘
The Atlanta-born hunk insisted that “we really tried hard to make it work. You know, anyone who says, “Man, this marriage is a profession. Like it’s great!” is like getting divorced quickly. ‘
Eva has a lifestyle blog called Happily Eva After and Kyle shared that ‘being in the public eye not only the family I married but also her choice to be in the lifestyle space’ influenced their divorce experience.
“You know, people were really judgmental and couldn’t imagine that we would make this decision from a place of love for each other, as a positive transition for our children.”
They wanted to say, “Listen, let’s not model marriage of closeness and pragmatism because we have children. Let’s show them what they should pursue to build a successful marriage. And let’s show them happy mom and happy dad too, because we’re not happily married together. ”

Eva and Kyle became a couple in 2009 and married two years later at a Charleston wedding thrown by Susan and Tim.
