Biggest Loser Divorce Comes Before BabyBy: Amanda Crum - May 9, 2013
“The Biggest Loser” has gained so much popularity over the years because the competitors are so relatable; we all want to see them do well because we care about them. Unfortunately, fans are about to get some disheartening news about two recent stars of the show.
Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson, who met while filming season nine and married last May, have announced they are ending their marriage. The news comes a shock for fans, as Stephanie is seven months pregnant.
“It is with great sadness that my marriage to Sam Poueu is ending,” Anderson said in a statement. “Thank you in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
The couple endured a major hardship when Poueu took a terrifying 54-foot fall and was severely injured; Anderson helped nurse him back to health, which made him see that she would be a wonderful wife and mom.
“Just from the experience of her being my caretaker post-accident, it was a dead giveaway that she’d be a fantastic mother,” he said. “That was an early sign for me that our child is going to have the best mother ever.”
The couple have not given a reason for the split, and there are no details at this time as to custody plans once Anderson has the baby.
