Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones, who said “I do” during Season 2 of “Love Is Blind,” are going their separate ways.

The Netflix stars announced they are divorcing after nearly a year of marriage in a joint statement shared to Instagram Wednesday.

“After much thought, we’re saddened to share that we have separated and will begin the process of divorcing,” they wrote.

McNeely and Jones told fans they still have love for each other, noting that their lives are simply “going in different directions.”

“Coming to this decision was far from easy and we will always wish each other the absolute best,” the statement continued.

The duo also asked for privacy as they navigate their breakup and thanked those who have been a support system throughout their reality TV marriage.

“We hope you all will give us some space as we close this chapter of our lives. Thank you to our close friends and family for loving us both through our experiences. To the ‘Love Is Blind’ family and Netflix, thank you for this unforgettable opportunity and support.”

McNeely, 28, and Jones, 32, shared that they were grateful for being part of the pod experiment and getting engaged sight unseen.

“Each of you have brought overwhelming love and joy into our lives. This experience has taught us so much about ourselves, vulnerability and love,” they said, adding, “We don’t regret a single thing!”

As fans witnessed during Season 2, the lead-up to their marriage was rocky. Jones wrestled having feelings for both McNeely and their co-star Mallory Zapata, with whom he also formed a blind connection with in the pods.

“It definitely feels good that we were able to navigate this journey together,” Jones exclusively told Page Six after the show wrapped. “I think the biggest challenge that we’ve worked on is just integrating our lives together as one.”

He continued, “We were two individuals who are completely, for the most part, opposite … with her being an introvert, and me being an extrovert. I think that’s something we’re constantly going to continue to work on.”
