Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi are no longer set to walk down the aisle.

The two, who Bachelor Nation saw get engaged on The Bachelor finale in March, have decided to go their separate ways, according to a joint statement issued to E! News

“It’s with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have decided to end our engagement,” the former couple said. “We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other.”

Viall last shared a photo of Grimaldi, a special education teacher, on his Instagram on July 26, to promote his partnership with Hello Fresh meal delivery service.
