Looks the summer season is a tough time for relationships that flourished on The Bachelor. First, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi’s highly publicized, messy split and now Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are headed down a rocky path. “It’s not really a ‘split’ though… We have just been having a tough time, and I needed to go back home [Canada],” Jillian told OK! exclusively.
Jillian is moving back to her parents’ home in Kelowna, B.C., Canada, where she and Ed spent some time together this past Christmas.
Jillian also adds that her move to Canada from her and Ed’s home on the outskirts of Chicago is “not permanent.”
Trying to overcome a rough patch in their engagement, Jillian and Ed are taking big strides to improve their relationship.
“Ed and Jillian hit a rough patch, so she thought quitting drinking was a good move. [A] healthy lifestyle and focusing on things that make her happy,” a source close to Jillian and Ed tells OK!.
A source close to the designer tells OK! Jillian is “still thinking of moving to San Francisco. [But] who knows.”
Baby buzz recently circulated around the former Bachelorette when she was spotted not drinking at the CMT awards in June, which fueled speculation of a possible pregnancy.
When asked by OK! if she was pregnant with fiancé Ed’s baby, she laughed out loud and said, “I am definitely not preggers!”
