I was going to adopt Ella. That probably made them think about the reality of things. Is she going to adopt her children? Things got weird.

“I think they didn’t have enough time at the end of the day for their children. And they realized that we need to slow things down and be great friends and raise our kids right now.”

“They were traveling, so [the kids] they were all staying with a nanny. They were in Costa Rica and sometimes the children came and sometimes they didn’t.

“They realized that while they were diving and doing all this stuff, the kids were on the beach with a babysitter.”

Since 2020, Holm’s Facebook page has been filled with photos of her sailing, horseback riding, surfing, and hiking with Mycoskie, as well as family photos with their respective children.

Mycoskie separated from his wife Heather Lang in October 2019, but only publicly announced their breakup in April 2020.

The same month, Holm posted on Facebook that she was moving from California to Jackson, Wyoming, where Mycoskie lived.

In the months that followed, she began posting photos with him and their children, calling him a “life partner” by October 2020.

That month, Mycoskie announced their relationship on Twitter with a video of them together on a yacht.

“Don’t find love, let love find you,” she wrote. That’s why it’s called falling in love because you don’t force yourself to fall in love, you just fall in love. Molly, you came into my life like a tornado of love, healing and light and I am so thankful that you swept me up and wherever we land will be fine :)’

The two ended up landing in Costa Rica, getting engaged in September 2021 and moving there that year after Mycoskie sold his Jackson home for $65 million.

But his friend said their relationship was so intense that they neglected time with their children.

“They were so happy to have found each other that the children were not the center of attention. And they woke up to it,’ she said. “You can see in the photos that the kids are having fun, but it’s never one on one.

“It’s so difficult when stepparents are involved, it’s really a difficult situation.”

The friend said “they are parting amicably but are still great friends,” adding that Mycoskie is still taking care of Holm financially, though he has moved back to Southern California.

“He has continued to take a generous interest in her and Ella, so that they are not left out,” she said.

Holm, a former model, says she has been a mutual fund manager at Highbridge Equity Partners since 2017 and was a project manager at Purity Organic, a health food company.

His online resume says he graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Government from the University of California, Berkeley.

Arlington-born Mycoskie made his first million after college in the 1990s with an on-campus dry cleaning service called EZ Laundry.

He founded Shoes for Better Tomorrows, now just TOMS, in 2006.

He said he was inspired by a trip to Argentina in his early 20s, seeing children without shoes, and decided to donate a pair of shoes to charity for every one he sold.

Mycoskie has two children from her previous marriage to Lang.  They appear together at a TOMS for Target launch event in 2014

He based his design on the country’s Alpargata everyday soft shoe.

By 2019, the firm had donated 95 million pairs of shoes.

It was valued at $625 million in 2014 when Mycoskie sold 50 percent to Bain Capital.

But the drop in sales left the company vulnerable. He had a $300 million loan due in 2020 that credit rating agencies believed he couldn’t afford, and in 2019 creditors seized him.

He is currently a co-founder of Madefor, a company that sells mindfulness courses for $17 a month.

He starred in Shark Tank and even tried to launch his own short-lived reality network.
