Bristol Palin‘s husband Dakota Meyer has filed for divorce, PEOPLE confirms.
The couple married in June 2016 and have two young daughters together, Atlee Bay, 9 months, and Sailor Grace, 2. Palin, the daughter of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, also has a son, Tripp, 9, from a previous relationship.
A source knowledgeable of the situation tells PEOPLE Meyer moved out of their home in Austin, Texas, around Christmas and filed for divorce two weeks ago. Meyer has also blocked Palin on social media.
Meyer, a Medal of Honor recipient, posted a photo of himself with Palin and their daughters on Jan. 7, captioning it, “What matters.”
Palin and Meyer have already had their share of relationship problems.
After announcing their engagement in March 2015, they called off their nuptials just days before they were due to wed in May 2015.
After reuniting and tying the knot, they told Entertainment Tonight in 2016: “Life is full of ups and downs but in the end, you’ll end up where you’re supposed to be. We are so happy to share with loved ones the wonderful news that we got married!”
“Hard work and God’s grace are the foundation of our new life together,” the couple added. “With the love and support of our family, we know we can get through anything.”
