The source also confirms that Kelly started the divorce process a few weeks ago (which they "both feared") because she "knew she just had to follow her heart and eventually realized that divorce was her only option ".
The couple share two children and "have not cut themselves off". In fact, the source says: "They are both heartbroken, but their plan is to put the children first. Their focus is on parenting and advancing, as this is the last place they will ever be thought they would be. They both understand divorce is never easy for children, but Kelly and Brandon are great parents. It will only take time. "
