Sam Poueu and Stephanie Anderson, who met on "The Biggest Loser" and then married after he survived a horrific accident, have separated even though they are expecting a baby together in two months.

"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 two met on season nine of "The Biggest Loser" in 2009, and Poueu proposed in October 2010 during the filming of a "Biggest Loser" special.

The following September, Poueu, a former security guard who became a trainer at the Biggest Loser Fitness Ridge Resort in Malibu, Calif., fell from a San Francisco fire escape and was hospitalized in critical condition. He fully recovered after months of physical therapy.

The couple married in April 2012 and in January announced Anderson was pregnant with their first child.
