Their split was confirmed via Jeannie’s rep on Friday.  It’s believed that the reason for the marriage ending is his desire to have children, which is something that she did not want, even before they got married.

It looked like she had a change of mind in 2016, as she openly discussed that she was freezing her eggs in an attempt to possibly have kids with Freddy.
