Nick Viall & Vanessa Grimaldi Just Ended Their Engagement

Another day, another Bachelor Nation breakup. The news came out this morning that Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi have officially split, and we’re honestly devastated. The couple released a statement to E! News, announcing that despite trying to make it work, they’ve chosen to call it quits.

“It’s with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us that we have decided to end our engagement,” the joint statement reads. “We gave this relationship our all and we are saddened that we did not get the fairytale ending we hoped for. We will continue to be there for each other no matter what. This hasn’t been an easy decision, however, as we part ways, we do so with lots of love and admiration for each other.”

The couple got engaged during the Bachelor finale, which aired in March, where Viall proposed to Grimaldi in Finland after saying goodbye to current Bachelor in Paradise star, Raven Gates. “I was fighting my feelings for Vanessa for such a long time because there were other women involved,” Viall told People back in March. “However, once I was able and free to make my choice, I felt like my heart knew for a while.”

This leaves Viall 0-4 on the Bachelor franchise scoreboard, after finishing as runner up on The Bachelorette twice, appearing on season 3 of Paradise, and finally, as the main suitor on season 21 of The Bachelor. Better luck next time, I guess?
