In a video on YouTube, released a month after speculation regarding the state of their relationship began trending on Twitter, Hembrow said the two had split in the last “month or so”.
“The reason I haven’t spoken about this until now is because we’ve still been trying to figure out stuff on our own,” she said. “The whole situation is very confronting and I hate talking about it.”
Hembrow, 24, and Hawkins, 23, became parents at the age of 20 after just a few months of dating. They now have two children together, Wolf, two, and Saskia, one.
“One or two months ago, I decided to end things with Reece. He didn’t cheat on me, I didn’t cheat on him. It wasn’t like that at all,” she said.
“Obviously, we’re human and we’re not perfect, we have ups and downs like everybody.
“I don’t want people to think we just gave up. Most people know relationships are very complex.”
