Hallie made it a point to share that while the pair have gone their separate ways and have been uncoupled a "year and a half" since her post, their No. 1 priority is the children. The couple married in September 2014.

Even though Josh and Hallie are no longer an item, that doesn't mean tha Josh may rule out having more kids in the future. Josh appears to love being a father and may possibly go down the road of expanding his brood if the right woman presents herself. Only time will tell.
