Reality Couple Caroline Stanbury & Cem Habib Split

“Ladies of London” alum Caroline Stanbury and husband Cem Habib have called it quits after 17 years of marriage.

On Thursday, Caroline announced the split, writing on Instagram, “After 17 years, filled with joy, adventures, ups and downs, Cem and I came to the conclusion some time ago that we will continue our relationship not as husband and wife but as good friends and parents to our wonderful 3 children we love very much.”

She added, “We wish each other all the happiness and look forward to maintaining our strong family unit.”

The announcement came just a day after they celebrated Christmas together with their kids, daughter Yasmine and twin boys Zac and Aaron.

Caroline captioned the pic, “Family always.”

After breaking the news, Caroline tweeted, “Thank you for all of the kind messages. I have received so many & it means the world to us both.”

The couple had been living in Dubai since 2016. Earlier this year, she shared on "Reality Life with Kate Casey," “It is home. Dubai is something. The weather is so shiny and lovely. Everything’s so easy in the house. I live in an oasis. The lifestyle is so lovely there. People are so warm, because Dubai didn’t exist till til 45 years ago, so everyone there has moved there and taken a risk to be there. It’s so much more forward than you think, culturally. We were only meant to be there a couple of years. We’re at almost three now.”
