Update


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

This is a blog post I never thought I'd write. I don't really know how to say what I need to say so I will just let the words flow out as my head and heart says them.

Matt and I have separated. A horrid sentence I know. I'm sorry to anyone who will feel sad reading that. I feel sad reading that too. Sad but alright. Alright because I know it was the correct thing to do.

We separated mid 2014 but have kept it to our nearest and dearest whilst we adjust to this new way of living, I'm sure you'll all understand and appreciate that. I wanted to tell you but also I cherished the privacy. I will still cherish the privacy because I won't talk about this very much and nor will he.

I won't spend a great deal of time going into why we have made this decision and I won't be answering questions on the topic (so please, don't leave any), but I will say this - Nobody is a villain or victim. Neither of us did a 'bad thing' (yanno, the classics like affairs or abuse etc) and neither of us hate each other. We are on extremely good terms actually.

As we have grown up, we have grown apart. We are very different people now and whilst I still love and care about Matt very, very much, it wasn't working. I know things like vlogs and blog posts can make things look perfect but just like anyone, our lives were not perfect and despite our best efforts, it just didn't work. Matt and I met in in 2004 and became a couple in 2005 and after 10 years, things are different. We're different. We have grown into people who just don't fit each other anymore. We tried for a long, long time, very, very hard to grow back together but sometimes you can't force a thing. Sometimes it's best to know when enough is enough and move forward with a new plan.

Our new plan is to be good friends who live apart but co-parent a very beautiful Daughter peacefully, lovingly, carefully and always united. We still spend time as a three and enjoy days out together. In fact, we're been on two holidays together since our decision and they have been lovely. 

It would have been really easy to go on longer not telling you this because it's not hard to distort the truth with clever editing or just being careful with what you say on camera but I didn't want to. I feel like the months I have had to keep this private have been enough and now I can tell you, move forward and carry on with my channels and blog and projects.

You may well see Matt in some of my future videos and if you follow him on his platforms, you'll see him there too.

I don't like to ask a lot from you but I will ask these few things if that's alright?

Please do not be mean to either one of us. Neither of us have done anything wrong at all.
Please do not make a fuss or drama. It's a really hard thing to tell you and I'm trusting that you will be cool with this. :)
Please be mindful with what you say about this. Our Daughter will one day grow up and could search for this and see your comments.
Please do not assume that every male/female you see each of us with is a potential partner. Neither of us are in new relationships and if that ever happens, we'll tell you when we're ready. 

We are both fine and totally supported. This could seem shocking to you but we've had months and weeks to sort ourselves out so we're already at the, 'Phew! I feel OK actually' stage. Yay!

I am so, so, so eternally sorry to anyone who feels upset or let down by this. I feel so much pressure to be perfect because I see your comments of love for my family. I wish I could have lived up to them. 

This post was hard and sad to write. Please do not leave a comment, I would prefer not to read any opinions (good or bad) on this topic, I would just like to tell you and move completely on. This is hard. 

Thank you for always being such a comfort. There have been many times over the last few months when I have been down or stressed and without you knowing how much I needed you, you have soothed and cheered in your wonderful sparkly way.

Big loves to you and also to Matt. Here's to a bright new future of peace and happiness.

Toodlepip.

    2. I'd of never guessed from your recent Disney vlogs that you and Matt had separated. As sad as it is people do grow and relationships don't always last, we drift apart from the one's we love. I'm pleased to see you've remained friends and Darcey is your number 1 priority, it's lovely to see and what makes you both great parents. x

    3. Louise you are an amazing person feeling dealing with this in the way that you are. You have no reason to be apologising to us or making us feel better about the situation, we should be supporting you through your amazing life along with your beautiful daughter. You are an inspiration to all women and families because of the way you have been upfront and excepting of your opinions.

      Lots of love and gratitude to you and your family,
      Sunshine :)

  13. Thinking of you. I think you've done it the right way and I wish you both the best. If you are ever scared about the future - I was when I was where you are last year - just know that you'll be a-okay. Or ab fab. Or something. x

  14. Big hugs and love to you both, Louise. I hope you're both alright. We support you and fully understand your decision to keep whatever aspects of your life that you chose, private. That will always be your choice and your right. As a child of divorce, I become much MUCH happier when my Mummy and Daddy were happy too. Darcy is a beautiful little girl and she'll grow up knowing that her mummy and daddy did the right thing and still love her very much. I'm so sorry if it's a sad time right now and we're all behind you through this difficult time. xxx

  15. I'm sorry to read this Louise, but I'm happy for you too, everythig will be easier from now on, you'll see.
    Matt looks like a great guy and an amazing father, you are very lucky to have him in your daughter's life, but you already know that :) You two are very inteligent, you will do a fine job co-parenting and will raise an amazing woman together.

    Always remember how you are strong. You can take over the World. Your Sprinklerinos will support you mo matter what.
    Lots of love from far away xxx

  16. After watching you for years I did notice that something happened last year and you were different but I was hoping this wasn't what it was. It's great that you & Matt ended in an amicable way and are determined to stay that way.

    Please don't worry about any of your viewers feeling let down or disappointed in the news - it's your personal life and you don't have to share it with us but I'm glad that you do because even though you have struggles and your life isn't perfect, you still do your best to be a positive influence and role model for the impressionable audience you have.

    Lots of love to all three of you. x

  17. Wow I literally started crying reading this, even though that probably sounds stupid since i don't know either of you in real life, i just feel like i know you both so much through your videos and i just really feel for both of you. I know from experience that seperations can be really hard. You both seem like really good parents to Darcy & just like generally good people & i hope your both ok with the seperation, i'm sure you will be. Sending both of you lots of love.

  19. Oh wow Louise ! I'm so sorry you had to go through this hard transition in your life. Just remember for every one bad comment someone says about your family that theres thousands of people supporting you. You put some much happiness and postivily in the world. You make people you've never met befores brighter !

  20. I rarely post on famous bloggers posts as I feel they never get read- but with you I sense it will. I felt compelled to leave a comment also as you are so strong and such a great role model! I am guilty of looking upon others lives and feeling down that they are perfect and I am not. You have clarified beautifully that life is not always what it seems..thank you for that...you give so much joy..thank you Louise! xxx

  21. No need to apologise! It's your life decision, you're so brave for telling us.

  23. Hopefully people will respect your wishes. The most important thing here is that you have the most wonderful, charming beautiful little girl and that you are great parents to her. I wish you both the best, and how great of you to write a blog post about it - you are quite special Louise <3

  25. Dear Louise, I know you didn't want a reply. Normally I'm a silent follower, but I felt the urge to let you know that I think you're an amazing woman before and after reading this post. I think you're very strong for writing this, for letting us know what's going on in your private life though you didn't have to do it. I wish you and Matt the best of luck. You both seem great persons and parents, and deserve the best. I think Darcy would be very proud of you both when she's older. (: Lots of love from the Netherlands xxx

  35. I really love that you think about Darcy and how she might find comments about this in the future because that's what comes with being such a public person. Thank you for being so open to your readers and viewers but don't ever feel like you have to tell us or not tell us something just so you appear perfect. Everyone has their flaws and that's absolutely fine (even though a separation is not a flaw at all).

  36. Aw Louise you haven't let anyone down! Sending hugs to all of you😌💖

  37. I am very sorry to hear about your separation and you have dealt with it maturely and professionally. You are a great role model not only for Darcy but for your subscribers as well. I applaud you for being so brave to right this and as I read this, my heart sank for you, Matt and Darcy. I know in my hear that you and Matt have and will know what is best not only for yourselves but for Darcy as well. I wish you all every happiness in the world and after reading all these wonderful comments, I know that if you are every feeling down and upset, all you have to do is read these comments and know you are loved by a lot of people. I understand the need for privacy and respect you wishes.

    You are a lovely person which I only dream about meeting in real life and giving you big hugs. Do not feel disheartened at any point. Things happen for a reason and as much as you tried so hard to make things work, you both understood and knew that it wasn't meant to be.

    Do not take any rude or harsh comments to heart and look to the future with your daughter and the great friendship that will come with Matt.

    I wish you every happiness for you all in the future.

    Keep smiling.

    Jess.

  38. Best of luck to you and Matt, Louise. As a child of divorced parents, I can honestly say that things got SO much better when my parents stopped pretending to be happy together and gave themselves the chance to make themselves happy. They became much more caring and self-aware parents. It sounds like you and Matt are already on your way there, which is lovely. I have no doubt that you will continue to be loving parents for Darcy and I am so happy that your separation was an amicable one. Best wishes <3

  39. My heart hurts greatly for you and Matt, Louise. I noticed something seemed off a while ago, but of course I did not want to assume. i will be sending prayers up for all of you, including Darcy. All my love. xoxo Mollie

  44. Oh my darling how on earth have you let us down? It is sad but the most important thing to remember is that out of this relationship you both have a BEAUTIFUL daughter. It sounds like you've both made a very mature decision and I have no doubt that Darcy will still be loved and adored just as much as she already was.

    It's news like this that makes me want to come over there, give you a big squeeze and a big glass of wine.

    Well done to you both for being so brave and honest with one another.

  46. I am so sorry to hear that this has happened. But I must say that you have dealt with this in a very mature way. :) I hope you or Matt don't get abuse for this, but I am sure the community of sprinkleorinos are very mature and will respect this.

    This story really shows how little your viewers and subscribers know about you behind the screen. The same goes for any other youtuber. So they can hardly spend their time judging you. Thanks for the reminder that your life isn't perfect either.

    Your array of supporters are always here when you need them!

  56. So sorry to hear your news Louise. I married at 21 (after a 5 year relationship) and ended up getting divorced 12 months later as after having been made redundant and having to grow up very quickly I realised the man i married wasn't the right person for me. The whole time was horrible, so stressful and unfortunately i didn't have support from my family or my friends - I really hope you do. Big love to you and lots of cuddles during this tough time xxxx

  111. I do realize you said to not comment but I just would like to express how I feel, and that is that I am proud of you. I am sad but I understand as my own parents are separated. You are a very mature woman and I'm glad you and Matt decided on this together. Overall, I wish you the best in raising your beautiful daughter. xxx

  112. you are such a brave and wonderful woman and should never feel like you have to be a 'perfect' family. Things like this happen and i am glad that you and Matt are both happy with the decision of still being friends. Sending my love x

  113. You are so amazing and I will never be disappointed in you and I know it is hard because my own parents have seperated recently and I know it is better to go ur seperated ways as I know Darcy would want to hear you argue. Best wishes for u all x

    ReplyDelete
  114. Louise I'm so sad for you :( I'm glad you are on good terms, it's the best way for things to be, especially for Darcy. Aw I do hope that one day you get back together because even though we don't know each other I love you a lot and you've really helped me through things, I'm glad nothing bad happened for you to split up. My parents split a year and a half ago because my dad had an affair and it was all so messy, but at least nothing terrible like that has happened because you're both wonderful lovely people and neither of you deserve that. Keep your head high, you both have such a beautiful daughter who will be so proud of both her parents when she's older. xxxxxxxx

  115. This is such sad news, but you seem to have handled it with great poise, and I'm sure Darcy will be extremely grateful for this, too many couples separate and then invest a lot of time trying to tarnish the other persons character. So hats off to you both for putting your beautiful baby girl first x

  116. Oh wow - I didn't expect that!
    You are such an amazing person Louise! And so BRAVE to write a blog post like this in the horrible social media world we live in! I hope you continue to be happy and sprinkle a little bit of glitter into everybody's lives.
    We all love you!

  117. I'm sorry to hear that but also well done to both of you for not just going through the motions if you're not happy and still remaining friends :)
    The father of my two daughters and I broke up after 7 years together in 2010 and whilst it was very hard we too had just grown apart. It wasn't a mutual seperation though so he found it very very hard but I think after a while he did realise that it was for the best in the end. Now, five years on, we're great friends and both work to raise our daughters to still feel happy as family even if we're not together, and they are :)

This takes so much courage to talk about and you've explained it perfectly (even though you shouldn't need to explain it at all). You seem to have dealt with the situation so incredibly well and I'm so happy that you and Matt are still in good terms. You are so lucky and Darcy is incredibly lucky to have such wonderful and understanding parents. Sending you the biggest amounts of love and happiness you could ever wish for. X x

  132. Dear Louise aka sprinkleofglitr,

    We love you so much and when I say ‘we’ I mean everyone! You’re such a beautiful woman with a hilarious sense of humor and lovely personality. It deeply saddens us all that you and Matt have split, but some things are for the better. As you mentioned in your blog, you and Matt are getting along great and that’s amazing because not too many exes can do that. You and Matt both are the most wonderful, and lovely people and I imagine you both will find love again with someone else one day (or unless you have already found love… That’s fabulous! And I hope you have a bright future with whomever you could possibly be with). We will all miss the relationship you shared with Matt dearly, but we wish you both the best! You are happy and so are we, and that’s all that matters. Your Sprinklerinos wish you the best!

    Love, Haley. :)

Hi Louise , you shouldn't worry about what what other people think about your decision ,because no matter what ,if you are happy then that means that you have made the right decision.It is true sometimes things don't work out and you just shouldn't push things because it may be better to try something else because it might turn out better than you could have expected . Also I want you to know that we are all here to support you and we all love you. Love from your sprinkleriono Zuzanna xxx

  137. Hey Louise!
    I completely understand with your decision. Its your choice- its what you wanted to do. Yes, there is the hater out there, but really, there just jealous. It's great that you and Matt have separateted- but are still friends. (And by that i mean its good that you are friends- not seperated) And I truly support you with your choices. So please, stay beautiful and strong x

  153. Louise, I think you should be proud of yourself for how strong you are. For being brave enough to share this with the world, but mostly for being strong enough to be honest with yourself. So many people stay in relationships WAY longer than they should, for many reasons. It takes so much courage to be true to yourself and to give yourself permission to do what will bring you the most happiness in the long run. I wish you all the best, and I hope you will continue to share your life with all of us for a long, long time (the good and the bad).

  156. I think this has been so mature of you, in considering Daisy especially. Also to anyone being rude, they started their relationship at about 15 so they will have obviously grown apart. I look up to you so much and this was incredibly brave and well written. All the best for you, Matt, Daisy and your future. xx

  164. Louise, please don't feel the need to be perfect. No one is perfect and just because you have an audience doesn't mean you have to be either. It's unfair for anyone to expect otherwise. We know you set a great example and are a great role model, and that's more than anyone could ever ask for :) I'm sorry to hear that you and Matt will no longer be together, but I think it's amazing that you're still going to be friends. Coming from someone who spent seventeen years with parents who had a horrible marriage, when Darcy is older, she is going to appreciate the fact that you two can be friends and respectful towards one another and didn't force yourselves, and her, to live in a situation that wasn't working.

    Sending love xx

Hi Louise, I have read your blog for a long time and I just want to say thank you for being such a strong and inspirational woman, I have been thinking of living my boyfriend after a five year relationship but have talked myself out of doing it as everyone thinks we have a 'perfect' relationship, y you have shown me that I can do it and it will make me happier. Thank you Louise xxx

  168. First thing I thought when I read this was: cool. What a cool couple. Darcy is so lucky to have you both, whether you're together-together or just friends together. My mum and dad split up and sort-of hated each other, but they're friends now and it's a great set up. Both are flourishing in their own ways and it's just nice to be around each of them. I'm happy for you and Matt and for Darcy :) I hope she reads this post and thinks you're cool parents too!

  169. I'm so sorry louise:( Darcy is very lucky to have such supportive parents who care about her a lot. My parents split up when I was 6 and they don't get along, but all they want is their own happiness and that's clearly what you and matt want! I'm sure everybody wants you both to be happy and so will support you no matter what, lots of love to you all <3

  171. Really sad to hear this. It's unfortunate that you've both grown apart, but it does happen and I'm just glad you're both on good terms (it's best for Darcy) not many children are so lucky that their parents aren't at eachothers necks all the time. Lots of love. xx

We watch your videos because you are one funny and kind person and your private life shouldn't affect any of us because it really is none of our business. I'm really sorry to hear this and it came as a shock to me because you always seem so positive and happy in your videos but like you said, we don't know what happens behind it but I'm truly glad to see that you are taking this so well and are in good terms with Matt. Just know we all want the best for you, Darcy and also Matt :) stay strong, be happy, do what's the best for you :) lots of love xo

  173. Dear Louise, Dear Matt, Dear future Darcy
    Hearing you voice your inner thoughts is very personal, thank you, always! That is very brave of you! I (we) am (are) not here to want you feel pressured. Of course we are there, we are like friends: we don’t expect you to be perfect, no such thing exists! It’s just a matter of how you show yourself the world. And I (we) am (are) sorry if we didn’t notice or are struggeling to understand. Well, now that you are so confident in telling us, I see no reason to scam you for telling us, you are confident and seem happy. You made decisions that brought you to a place were you can safely say: „Okay, that feels nice, better than before. I think I’ll stay like this and see what happens. =) „ Personally, I think you are great (pssst, you are my idol and you inspire me in so many ways for so long, I can’t write that here) and will continue to be so. For your, Matt’s and Darcy’s inner well being. Thank you.
    I know you probably didn’t want any kind of message under this blog entry, but hearing you saying that you feel pressured by us moved me more than I can say. Please, Louise, please don’t let it come the main priority to please us, but enjoy doing videos that we happen to enjoy, too!
    Lot’s of love to everyone!
    Sincerely, everyone.
    And my humble person, Muriel

  174. I know you didn't want comments, but I felt I had to say something anyway! (sorry!)

    10 years can definitely change a person. Being 25 is a completely different stage in both your lives from when you were 15. All you can do is be the parents you can be, and I think you are doing a fabulous job. Being apart my just bring you together in the co-parenting sense.

    At the end of the day people are people and people change. that's not something to apologize for. You guys are making the right decision for you and Darcy and that is something to be proud of. :)

  182. Louise, this is the hardest thing you will ever have to write hopefully. The honesty and courage you show by writing this shows that you are a true role model. I think that people shouldn't be ashamed of separating with a partner in this type of community, being honest about this is all you needed to do to show us that being single or separated is a positive thing.
