Last fall, Carson Daly and his wife Siri experienced a number of changes in life that made it impossible to sleep. The Today host has sleep apnea, a condition that causes relentless snoring. In the meantime, Siri was pregnant with her fourth child, Goldie Patricia. The result: throw and turn a lot.
"We're both pretty big people and it just didn't really work," Carson said in a new People interview. "She couldn't make herself comfortable, so we were like a commercial you would see, kicking each other and just not sleeping."
So they decided to do something about it. "We woke up and just shook hands like" I love you, but it's time to get a divorce. It will be the best for all of us, ”he said.
When Carson originally revealed that he and Siri were sleeping separately, he also explained that they were in the process of renovating their house so that they were downgraded to a queen-size bed, which made things even more difficult.
As of June, they have kept their agreement. "I purposely don't sleep with [Siri] and Goldie because I don't want to wake them up at 3am," Carson said. "We still sleep divorced, but for clearly different reasons."

While he no longer snores (thanks to a CPAP device for sleep apnea), Carson said the sound of the device just keeps Siri awake. "It's like sleeping next to Darth Vader. Really attractive, isn't it?" He said. "Most women would like to sleep in another bedroom."
"I don't know if we'll ever sleep together again," he added. However, the separate bed life has actually benefited their relationship since both feel more energized.
"Sleep is important, that's an important part of it. You will be a better person when you are rested, which can help your relationship," he said today. "We don't want to sleep separately, but we have now and me think secretly, we say, "It's kind of cool," because you get command of the whole room. "
Still, he told people there was a chance that they would try to doze in the same room again. “Believe it or not, our mattress in the house we rented was on the floor. So Siri wrote to me one night: "Maybe we should get the bed fixed and try to sleep together?" He said. "Perhaps a Friday when I don't have to wake up at 3 a.m. the next day is our triumphant return to sleep."
