E! Online — Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy have decided to end their engagement.

A rep for the retired football player and now morning talk show host tells E! News, “They love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule, it has been hard to maintain the relationship.”

Strahan first began dating the VH1 star and model back in 2007, and the duo has nine children between them.

The 46-year-old beauty was previously married to Eddie Murphy, while the 42-year-old soon-to-be football Hall of Famer was once married to Jean Muggli.

The two have been engaged since 2009 and have kept fairly quiet about their personal lives throughout their relationship.
