The couple revealed they were ending their five-year engagement just one day before Michael was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Nicole Murphy, 46, and Michael Strahan, 42, have ended their engagement after staying together for a good five years. As the couple was on its way to move down to the alter they both decided to put an end to their attachment due to ‘distance’. According to Michael’s rep, who recently got to talk to People, “They [Michael and Nicole] love each other very much, but with the distance and work schedule it has been hard to maintain the relationship.”
Nicole Murphy first met Michael back in 2007 and they both got engaged in 2009 and as if this incident proved quite lucky for Michael, his career as the NFL player turned talk show host took off and he got pretty busy with it. At the moment he is not just a co host at Live! With Kelly & Michael but is now also part of the Good Morning America team. Nicole on the other hand has also been successful as a model and star of the VH1 reality show, Hollywood Exes.
The news didn’t come at such a great time because they decided to announce their split up only a day before Michael was honored with an induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He had played defensive end for the New York Giants from 1993 to 2007.
