Published August 3, 2014

Michael Strahan and Nicole Murphy have called it quits on their relationship, a rep for the couple confirms to Us Weekly. "They love each other very much but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship," the rep says a statement.

Strahan, 42, and Murphy, 46, got engaged in 2009 after two years of dating. The former NFL star changed careers to television when he officially joined ABC's Live! With Kelly and Michael daytime talk show in September 2012. He also joined Good Morning America as an anchor this past April. Murphy, who was married to Eddie Murphy from 1993 until 2006, is a former model and star of VH1's Hollywood Exes

The couple announced their split just one day before Strahan is due to be inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.
