"While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with," their statement read. "How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place."

They also dispelled rumors that they're getting a divorce, saying in their statement: "Our marriage has honestly never been stronger. This has nothing to do with a fraudulent skincare line or anything else you’ll inevitably read."

In their video, Joanna said that the couple plans to "pour into" their businesses (which includes a market and a bakery) "as much as [they] can" and that they want to spend more time with their family.

"Our beautiful children are growing up so quickly," she said of their four kids, Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie. "So I think the idea that we kind of get to step back and just get kind of fresh vision, get some rest, but also just hunker down with our kiddos is something that we’re excited about, but also sad that this chapter in our lives is coming to an end."
