A week after Farmer Wants A Wife star Claire announced that her wedding to Farmer Andrew had been cancelled, more information has come to light.

A former co-star, who appeared on the 2023 season of Farmers, told Yahoo! that the pair are “technically still together, but taking time apart and having a break”.

The anonymous source added that the decision was “led by Andrew” and Claire is “pretty upset”.

Claire confirmed that the wedding was cancelled via a statement to her Instagram stories.

“Andrew and I have had to cancel our wedding due to reasons out of our control, but we are both okay,” she wrote, adding that she and her dogs had travelled to Darwin to work for the dry season.

“I’m not sure what else to say other than, sometimes life is hard and we all just need a little breathing space.

“There will be no farming content from me for the foreseeable future.”

Andrew has not yet addressed the development on his own Instagram.

Farmer Andrew committed to Claire in the second-last week of filming season 13.

They announced their engagement in March 2024, four months after celebrating their first anniversary.

Taking to Instagram to share the news, Claire shared a photo of herself with a gorgeous ring adorning her finger. 

“I said YES to the love of my life 💍,” she captioned the post.

“So absolutely grateful that I wake up to this life everyday. You are my best friend @farmerandrewau and my safe place, ILYSM Xx”

Prior to this, Claire shared with our sister publication Woman’s Day that she thought Farmer Andrew’s big love confession was going to be a rejection.

“I got to the farm and there was a letter on the bed, and it said, ‘Meet me out the front, we need to talk.’ I thought I was going home, so I didn’t expect that, it was nice,” the mine truck driver said.

Then-41-year-old Andrew, however, had no hesitation. Knowing “pretty early on” that the then-37-year-old would be his final choice.

After the show, Claire moved to live with Andrew on his Narromine farm. At the time, she told our sister publication WHO that the northern move from Tasmania had been smooth sailing.

“I had property in Tasmania and grew up on Flinders Island. The transition from moving from Tassie to New South Wales was natural and really easy for me.”

Andrew added: “We’ve settled in here and now we can get out and about together as a couple which is great.”

Claire and Andrew previously shared their thoughts on marriage and children.

“It would be nice to have twins first up and then see what would happen after that,” Claire told Woman’s Day.

“We’re approaching it with the mindset of, let’s enjoy one another first for a period of time and make memories of our own, and if things keep evolving in a positive manner, then that’ll come,” Andrew said.
