Meyer, 27, filed for divorce from Palin, 29, on Thursday, February 8, according to documents obtained by Us. They are also no longer following each other on Instagram.

The news comes nearly nine months after Sarah Palin’s oldest daughter and the Medal of Honor recipient welcomed their second child together, a baby girl named Atlee Bay. They are also parents to daughter Sailor, 2.

“We had the best doctor/nurses imaginable and Dakota did amazing,” Palin wrote in a blog post in May shortly after giving birth. “He held my hand, took care — and encouraged me the entire time, I could not have a more supportive husband … This pregnancy has strengthened out bond and made our relationship stand even firmer on the foundation that we have proudly built up for our little family.”
