Heather Armstrong, the mommy blogger who gained millions of followers for her irreverent observations on parenthood, announced in her blog she is separating from her husband.
“The only way out of my unhappiness was to take myself out of it,” Armstrong wrote on Dooce.com. It was a post many of her readers didn’t see coming.
Armstrong did not share a reason for the split, but her husband Jon shed some light on it in a post on his own blog, Blurbomat.
“Living with someone with depression and anxiety means some gymnastics for any partner,” Jon wrote, but he pointed out that his wife’s battle with depression, which she has frequently chronicled, was not the sole source of their split.
“I am plenty to blame for this state of things,” he wrote.
Heather Armstrong did not return a message from ABCNews.com. Jon Armstrong said he would prefer to not say anymore publicly and would defer to his wife.
The couple has two children, Leta,7, and Marlo, 2.
