Married At First Sight‘s Melissa Walsh has ended her engagement to artist Fred Whitson after three years together.

The reality star, 55, posted a photo of herself fighting back tears as she confirmed the tragic news just days before Christmas.

‘After three years together, with a heavy heart I have to say that Fred and I have parted ways,’ she began. ‘I have loved him very much and will always treasure our good times together.’

While she didn’t give a reason for their split, she added that sometimes ‘life doesn’t work out the way we planned.’

‘…but we must have faith that better things await us,’ she added.

‘Whilst this is a very difficult time for all involved, I know that I leave with my head held high. I am strong, resilient and my integrity is at the forefront of all my decisions.’

She then thanked everyone for their support, before saying her ‘heart goes out’ to anyone going through something similar.

‘Whatever you do, the most important thing I’ve learnt is be kind to yourself, take all the time you need to grieve, spend times in the safe haven of family and friends, and have faith that this is happening for your own good in the end,’ she added.

On his Instagram page, Fred shared a message of his own.

After saying he was ‘privileged’ to have been with Melissa for three years, he cryptically added: ‘A lot of us also have our own personal demons, sometimes so insidious that you didn’t even realize were there, and that eventually exact an enormous toll. 

‘So now comes a time for me of reflection and redevelopment, to become a better person. It’s a long road ahead…’

The pair were all set to marry back in June in Vanuatu, but put their plans on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Heartache: The pair had announced their engagement in December 2018, the same year she rose to fame on Married At First Sight

Melissa previously told Daily Mail Australia that her wedding was set to be a ‘private affair’.

‘Just the two of us, maybe some friends and family and not a massive production,’ she said.

The pair had announced their engagement back in December 2018. 

Meanwhile, Melissa rose to fame on Married At First Sight back in early 2018 when she tied the knot with co-star John Robertson.

The blonde journalist said that while things didn’t work out between the pair, she recalls their time on the show rather fondly.

‘I thoroughly enjoyed myself, John and I got on amazingly… obviously it didn’t last, but we had the best time together,’ Melissa said.
