Country singer Jimmie Allen and Alexis Gale announced on social media Friday afternoon (April 21) that they are separating. At the same time, they announced that Gale is expecting a baby.

“After much thought and reflection in recent months, Lex & I have made the decision to separate,” the American Idol and Dancing with the Stars alum wrote on social media. Gale posted a similar statement to her page. The two also revealed that they are expecting their third child together. “As we navigate this life change, we can also share that we will be welcoming another child together later this year,” Jimmie wrote. The couple share two daughters, three-year-old Naomi and one-year-old Zara. Jimmie is also father to 8 year old Aiden from a previous relationship.

“Our number one priority is and always will be ensuring that our children are healthy, happy and loved, and we remain committed to co-parenting with love and respect for one another,” the statement reads. “In light of our growing family, we respectfully request privacy during this time.”

The former couple began dating early in 2019 after meeting through a relative. They got engaged the summer of that year and then married in May 2021.

With a couple of exceptions, Jimmie has no photos of his family on his Instagram. He also turned off sitewide comments. Also, Jimmie’s Wikipedia page has no “Personal Life” category, which is rare for celebrities. His wife’s account still features a ton of content about Jimmie.
