When Sophie Cachia announced her split with her husband of four years, Jaryd Cachia in September 2019, fans were surprised by the sudden news.
Sharing her news in an Instagram post, the 29-year-old was adamant she and Jaryd were on amicable terms, stating that he was “forever my soulmate” in a later Instagram post. They would also continue parenting their two children – Bobby, six, and Florence, two.
“Separation more often than not comes with the assumption of animosity or hatred,” she wrote.
“Whilst it hasn’t always been easy navigating through co-parenting under the same roof this year [which has included family holidays, continual support of personal careers & no changes to our social setting], we truly appreciate how lucky we are to have each other.
“Unfortunately we could no longer agree on which setting to have the toaster on, who left the sock drawer open and if you really put butter before peanut butter. But really… we aim to continue to create our very own version of happiness together as a family and to bring our children up with the inspiration to continually do what makes you happy and live your life how you want to live it.
“We are merely a case of two kids who fell in love hard early and are now two adults who love and respect each other enough to part ways amicably. We have always had – and still do daily – operate as one mind, and that’s why there’s been so much understanding with such a sensitive topic.”
Sophie Cachia talks about ‘sharenting’ and the one rule that can’t be broken. Post continues below.
Four months later, the couple continues to be on great terms and have no plans to officially divorce. Jaryd is frequently seen in Sophie’s Instagram posts and the family of four recently celebrated Christmas together.
Appearing on the podcast, Having A Chat, Sophie told host, Tommy Casha, how she and Jaryd mutually agreed on their separation.
