Vanessa Grimaldi finally broke her silence after it was revealed that she and fiancé Nick Viall have called it quits. In a joint statement released to E! News, the two confirmed that they have decided to put an end to their relationship several months after "The Bachelor" aired their engagement.

Grimaldi is moving on following split from Viall

The "Bachelor" couple said they were "saddened that [they] did not get the fairytale ending [they] hoped for" but promised to continue to support each other regardless of what happened to their relationship.

"This hasn't been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other," they added.

The former couple did not provide the reasons that led to their sudden separation. Meanwhile, Vanessa Grimaldi updated her followers on what she has been up to following the announcement. In an Instagram post, she said that "it's okay to feel broken, it's okay to cry, it's okay to lean on a friend" before she held onto the promise that things "will always be okay" in the end.

An affiliate confirmed to ET Online that Vanessa Grimaldi is currently in Canada to spend some time with her family and friends. It added that the special education teacher has been "laying low" and enjoying her time with her loved ones.

But despite the separation, Vanessa Grimaldi and Nick Viall are still in contact in hopes to make the breakup a lot easier for both of them. The source added that the two are still close even after they have called it quits.

What went wrong between Grimaldi and Viall?

Not much has been said about the separation, but there was a few factor that may have led the separation.

First on the list is distance. It is worth noting that the sped teacher lives in Quebec, while the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant resides in Los Angeles.

Although there were plans of moving in to start their life together, the couple were not spared from breakup rumors which they immediately shot down when they packed on the PDA in an Instagram post uploaded in July.

On top of these reasons, it is worth noting that only nine out of 21 "Bachelor" couples pursued to get married or are still engaged in the history of the dating franchise.

Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are the latest couple to be engaged during "The Bachelorette" finale aired earlier this month. Meanwhile, Carly Waddell and Evan Bass from the third season of "Bachelor in Paradise" are now expecting their first child after they tied the knot in June.
