Amy and Michael were high school sweethearts.

Michael and Amy have two boys together.
The couple had their first child, Gage, on Nov. 10, 2020. Having Gage was a big deal, and Amy had to undergo major surgery to get her body ready for it. Pretty soon after having Gage, Amy became pregnant again, and they had their son, Glenn, in July 2022.
However, despite the joyous moments of expanding their family, the couple faced irreconcilable differences. Their relationship shifted after the birth of their second son.

After Amy moved out in February and the couple began their separation, Michael filed divorce papers on March 13, 2023. There was no going back for the couple.

It only took six months to finish things up, and the couple was officially divorced on Sept. 6, 2023.
