Taking to Instagram, the TV and radio personality, 39, shared a typed statement with her fans and followers.

“Some personal news, Sean and I have separated,” Erin began her post.

“We are entirely committed to co-parenting our 3 year-old daughter, who is the most important person in the world to both of us.”

She continued: “Any breakdown of a family unit is incredibly difficult and we ask for privacy at this time – especially given the private approach that we have taken to our relationship.

“We won’t be making any further comment, thank you.”

Erin and Sean announced their engagement in April 2017, one year after they started dating. They welcomed daughter Eliza in 2018.

Erin and homicide detective Sean were set to tie the knot but their plans to wed were put on hold when she fell pregnant.

“We had the place [booked], we were literally six weeks away and then hello positive … I got pregnant,” she said on the Hughesy, Ed and Erin show.

“There was no way in hell that I was going to get married while pregnant. To be honest, it’s so not a priority now. We’ve got a two and half-year-old and if I were to get married then I’d probably just do it at mum and dad’s out the back.”

In 2020, Erin shut down claims that she and Sean had split to the Daily Telegraph.

“We are very happy, I don’t talk about Sean a lot because his job is quite a unique job so we’re quite private when it comes to our relationship,” she said at the time.

“But we are both very good and happy and we’re very much in love with our daughter which is the most important thing.”

Erin and Sean met at Sydney’s Coogee Bay Pavilion, while Erin was out with friends for Christmas drinks.

“I thought, he’s a good looking rooster,” she recalled to the Australian Women’s Weekly.

The next morning Erin called Sean to ask him out. Four weeks later he moved in and a year after that he proposed.

“When you know, you know,” she said.

“I love that he’s not in the industry, I love that he wouldn’t be seen dead on a red carpet with me. It’s not his world and I love that about him because it doesn’t appeal to me either.”
