News that "The Biggest Loser" contestants Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson are in the process of getting a divorce only two months from the due date of their first child has many fans asking one big question: Why?
If a People source close to the situation is to be believed, the answer is not a good one.
With the baby's birth approaching, Anderson, 33, felt they "weren't connecting" and sought couples counseling, the source told the mag. And in one of the sessions, Poueu, 28, allegedly decided to come clean.
"He [admitted] that he had cheated on her with multiple women throughout the course of their courtship and marriage," the source said. "He told her everything."
That was enough for Anderson, who, according to the source, initiated the split.
Poueu didn't exactly jump to defend himself, the mag said, as he said in a statement, "The circumstances and specifics of our marriage and our separation are extremely difficult and private."
He said the two are focused primarily on the July birth of their son and doing what's best for the boy.
