Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan have called it quits.
“It is with much sadness that we have decided to end our engagement,” the Bachelor in Paradise alums tell PEOPLE in a statement. “We put everything we could into our relationship and are heartbroken to go forward separately, but we know this is the best decision for the both of us. We will still be present in each other’s lives with support, admiration and respect for each other.”
“Paradise was amazing — I definitely had started to fall in love with Taylor while we were there, but once I went to Seattle and saw her friends and family, it definitely was seeing her heart connect with her loved ones and her animals,” Peth told PEOPLE at the time. “There was one morning where we were drinking coffee on the porch looking at Mt. Rainier and reflecting and I was like, ‘Dang, I love this girl.’”
The couple had been doing long distance. According to E! News, in early December, Peth relocated to New York City, while Nolan remained in Seattle.
