On Thursday, the 32-year-old announced via a private Facebook post obtained by People that she and her husband of more than a year have separated just three months after she was released from prison.

According to the post, Blanchard is living in her family's home for the time being as they explore time apart. 

"People have been asking what is going on in my life. Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents [sic] home down the bayou," she wrote. "I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this. I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now I need time to let myself find… who I am."

Lifetime confirmed to ET that Blanchard and Anderson's separation will not affect the filming of her upcoming series, which is set to debut in June.

The update on their relationship comes mere months after she was released following a seven-year stint behind bars after pleading guilty in 2016 to the second-degree murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard. While in prison, she began correspondence with Anderson and the pair ultimately wed in July 2022.

She told ET in January that it was their common locality that first attracted her to Anderson when he sent her letters while she was in prison. 

"Ryan's from Louisiana... and I'm originally from Louisiana, and I saw that, I'm kinda like, 'Oh, hey, someone from my home state!' So I wrote him a letter back and we became friends," she recalled, "and of course more than friends, and then now we're married."

The couple also told ET that while they were eager to start their lives together -- including starting a family -- they weren't rushing into anything and were opting to go one day at a time. 

"I don't have any reservations," Blanchard said of having kids. "We both have talked about starting a family, we just don't know when yet."
