Former Today show weatherman Steve Jacobs has reportedly split with his wife Rosie, just months after moving to Vanuatu together.
A source close to the couple allegedly told Confidential that they have ‘grown in different directions’.
The pair, who have been married for nearly seven years, have two young daughters.
Confidential reports that Steve, 51, and Rosie, 39, decided to part ways last year.
‘They’ve grown in different directions and want different things in life now,’ a friend of the husband and wife was alleged to have told the publication.
The insider went on to claim: ‘Steve and Rosie had such a public image of the perfect happy family but behind the scenes there were struggles that would put a strain on even the best marriage.’
The pair met on Today in 2007 and tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Bali, in 2010.
Following his retirement as a weather presenter on the Today show early last year, Steve and his family relocated to Vanuatu.
Steve tearfully farewelled the Today show team in January last year, after 12 years of presenting the weather.
‘For the past 12 years, I haven’t been able to wake up once with my wife, haven’t been able to get the kids to daycare,’ he said.
‘After 12 years I’ve decided to hang up my boots from Monday to Friday, but the good news is… Mark Calvert (Today executive producer) has come up with a great program to make my work more flexible so I can stay with you guys.’
Steve had previously described his role on Today as ‘gruelling’ and ‘exhausting’.
‘If you love what you do, and I do, then you just deal with the hours, I don’t want to be doing anything else,’ he told news.com.au in 2015.
