Kyle was pregnant with their first daughter, Alexia Umansky, during the big day and the pair later welcomed daughters Sophia in 2000 and Portia in 2008.
Their marriage seemingly took a turn on July 3, 2023, after news broke that the Bravo and Netflix stars split. However, they broke their silence and addressed the status of their marriage in a joint statement via Instagram the following day.
“In regards to the news that came out about us today … Any claims regarding divorcing are untrue. However, yes, we have had a rough year. The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously,” the statement read. “There has been no wrongdoing on anyone’s part. Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative.”
