At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family. With Love, Christine Brown.”

Kody also took to Instagram with a statement confirming the news of their breakup. “Christine’s decision to leave comes with a great deal of sadness,” the father of 18 wrote. “We enjoyed many years together and I have a large amount of respect and admiration for her. Although we are moving forward on different paths, we will always remain committed parents.”
