In the four years they were together, Emily and Sebastian welcomed a baby boy named Sly and kept their relationship relatively private. However, fans were left shocked in July 2022 when reports surfaced that they’d parted ways just 14 months after their son was born.
At 27 years old, Sophie is a young mom just like Emily, having welcomed two daughters with Joe in 2020 and 2022.
The same day Joe and Sophie issued a joint statement confirming their split, Emily took to TikTok to offer some words of advice to young, freshly divorced women.
“So it seems that a lot of ladies are getting divorced before they turn 30,” she began. “And as someone who got married at 26, has been separated for a little over a year, [and is] 32 — I have to tell you, I don’t think there’s anything better.”
The model and author explained that being in your 20s is “the trenches,” while your 30s can provide you with more freedom to thrive independently.
“There is nothing better than being in your 30s, still being hot, maybe having a little bit of your own money, figuring out what you want to do with your life [and] everything,” Em said. “Having tried that married fantasy and realizing that it’s maybe not all it’s cracked up to be, and then you’ve got your whole life still ahead of you!”
She concluded the short vid by giving a shoutout to all those who are “feeling stressed” about “being divorced.”
“It’s good. Congratulations!” she said, adding in the caption, “Personally, I find it chic to be divorced by the age of 30.”
“My life feels really full,” she said during an episode of her High Lowpodcast in January. “Which has made dating really interesting and fun because I’m doing it for the experience, not because I’m looking for the next boyfriend. I’m just, like, enjoying myself.”
More recently, Emily gave some insight into the end of her marriage to Sebastian, admitting that she “didn’t have the courage to leave for a long time.”
“I was 100 pounds and I’d just had a baby, and, like, I got really skinny because I was not OK. I tried everything else. I tried to take antidepressants. I was sure that something was wrong with me,” she said during a podcast interview in March, shortly before the misconduct allegations against her ex surfaced.
As it stands, Emily and Sebastian have yet to finalize their divorce.
