'Fox & Friends' host's husband files for divorce: 'I am devastated'


"Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt and her husband, William Proctor, are headed for divorce.

Proctor, who has been married to Earhardt for six years, reportedly filed for divorce on Wednesday, one day after the Fox News host announced their separation amid allegations that her husband had been unfaithful.

Page Six reports that Proctor brought the contested proceeding to Manhattan Supreme Court on Wednesday, "meaning he expects a fight over money or custody of their 2-year-old daughter."

The former Clemson quarterback told the New York Post that he's "devastated about this situation" and "did not envision this future for [his] family."

Earhardt confirmed the separation with a statement to AOL through a Fox News spokesperson: "After much prayer and careful consideration, Will and I have separated. I am grateful to Fox for their support and allowing me to spend all day, every day after the morning show with my child."

"I am fully committed to parenting and doing what is always best for my darling little girl and would appreciate privacy and prayers during this time," she added.

As for the speculation that Proctor's infidelity is what sparked the downturn in their marriage, he insists that "there is not one ounce in truth to the allegations."

"I am disappointed that this private matter has become public," he said. "I remain focused on and committed to being the best Dad, and maintaining a friendship with my wife even though she has decided to move on."

A source close to the couple contends that Proctor, 42, did indeed cheat on Earhardt, 34 -- with a close friend of hers, no less.

"Proctor was unfaithful with one of her closest friends a few years ago and there is evidence to prove it," the insider told Page Six.

Another source added that "Ainsley has determined that she is not interested in reconciliation. Her social life now revolves about her colleagues at Fox News."
