Explaining that it took a “long time” to come to the decision, Xiaxue said that she had a “good run with loads of love, happiness and memories” with her ex.

Will co-parent son with ex

Xiaxue said that she and Sayre’s focus will be to co-parent their son while “continuing to support each other as [they] move forward with their separate lives”.

She wished Sayre “nothing but happiness” as she said she “never regretted picking” him.

Xiaxue has asked her followers for privacy, and wrote:

“Separation is difficult, but it’s so much worse when you have to tell it to so many people - about a decision that technically has nothing to do with them.”
