The end of an era

Catherine and Austin McBroom, the parents behind the YouTube vlog channel “The ACE Family,” announced their divorce on Thursday via separate social media posts.

In their remarks, the two both stated that they “mutually agreed” to the break and will work together to raise their three young children, Elle, Alaia, and Steel.

The pair did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday.

Since starting their YouTube channel in 2016, the McBrooms have garnered over 18 million subscribers. They are most known for their viral family vlogs, challenges, and pranks. In recent years, they have also been entangled in a number of legal disputes.

Divorce incoming

The last video on their channel was released seven months ago, after they stated that 2022 would be their final year on YouTube.

Catherine McBroom said in an Instagram post that their “paths as a couple have shifted and has created challenges that are irreconcilable.”

“As heartbreaking as this is, I also feel liberated,” she wrote. “I have spent the past few years prioritizing my children and honoring my commitment to my family; all the while I seemed to be losing myself and my own personal happiness.”

Who cheated on who?

In his Instagram post, Austin McBroom shared a photo of himself and Catherine, calling the divorce the “hardest decision of my life.”

“We created one of the greatest stories, almost a decade together, so many memories, so many accomplishments but every book comes to end,” he wrote. “And now we will be writing a new book as separate authors.”

Started as family, ending as best friends

Some fans expressed their sadness in the comments. Others speculated on the reasons for the split, including suspicions of adultery (which Austin McBroom has denied).

In her message, Catherine McBroom stated that Austin McBroom would always be her “bestfriend.”

Both thanked their followers for their support over the years, and they stated that their children will be their first focus.

“Separations are difficult and most times messy,” Austin McBroom said in a blog post, “but you will see how we push through these difficult times as a unit and keep influencing with love and positivity.”
