Fowler claimed in legal documents obtained by TMZ that Hunt is “guilty of inappropriate marital conduct” and “guilty of adultery.” The court documents indicated the two were separated at the time they were filed, the outlet reported.
While Fowler has not publicly announced that she is pregnant, she wrote in the divorce filing that she is due to give birth in May 2022 and asked for alimony and primary custody of their future child, according to TMZ. She is also seeking child support and requested that “the parties be awarded their respective separate property,” TMZ reported, which Us Weekly said indicates they may have signed a prenuptial agreement.
In the documents, Fowler wrote that “all hopes of reconciliation are exhausted,” per Us Weekly.

Hunt Proposed in 2017 During a Trip to Israel
Hunt and Fowler started dating on and off in 2008. According to The New York Times, the two ended things right before Hunt decided to focus fully on his career.
In 2020, he told the outlet, “She was under the impression, and I had sure expressed this to her at some point, that she was the No. 1 priority. I would choose her over everything. And then it sort of turned around and I said, actually, I want to choose [my career].”
After two years of creating music and touring, Hunt decided to pursue Fowler once again in the hopes of winning her back.
Appearing on “The Bobby Bones Show” in 2017, he shared that his mission was successful; Hunt subsequently popped the question during a trip to Israel in January 2017.
He told Bones, “Something came up that irritated her and I realized this may mess up my big plan to ask her to marry me that night, and it kind of agitated me more about this issue,” he said. “It turned into this kind of fight that, fortunately, led to the perfect opportunity to ask her to marry me. So this little altercation we had actually worked out. It was a special moment.”
Hunt’s Debut Album Was Named After Fowler’s Hometown
Fowler and Hunt were married in 2017. While they successfully kept their relationship out of the spotlight, the “Take Your Time” singer has opened up about his estranged wife on more than one occasion.
According to People, Hunt’s debut album, “Montevallo,” was named after Fowler’s hometown. In 2017, the country singer told E! Online, “I didn’t actually live in that town. I had never visited Montevallo, but right before I left to go to Nashville I met a girl from there. A lot of the experiences I had with her and the relationship I had with her, that inspired a lot of the songwriting on the album.”
In April 2021, the couple celebrated four years of marriage together.
At the time, Hunt told KISS Country 99.9 Miami’s “TC & Dina” radio of expanding their family, “I hope so. We’ve been talking about it for a while, but we’ve really started thinking about it seriously here these past few months, so that’s on the agenda right now. And I’m hoping that we’ll have some good news sooner than later.”
