She went on to say that there was ‘nothing scandalous or salacious about this decision’ and that they were ‘simply two people who tried our best to make our union work, but ultimately realized our individual paths were taking us on different journeys…’
In December, the pair appeared very in love as they enjoyed a trip to Fletcher native country just days before Christmas.
Baldwin posted photos of the laid-back couple eating a traditional meal of fish and chips with ‘mushy peas!’ and visiting the Royal Albert Hall where ‘James printed our wedding invitations’.
She shared multiple photos of them exploring London via a double-decker bus and a snap of her sprawled on the hotel’s heated bathroom floors.
The couple’s trip didn’t indicate any sort of trouble in paradise as Baldwin proudly showed off moments with Fletcher’s family, including a video of ‘peppering’ her husband’s childhood friend’s kids with questions about English boarding school.
‘Fun fact: My husband was sent away to school at seven!’ she wrote with a shocked-faced emoji.

The only slight indication the couple was struggling was a New Year’s eVden eVe NaKLiYAt post which said she ‘vowed to continue *doing the work* so I can show up as the best version of myself for MYSELF…and then also for my husband…and anyone, really.
‘I’ve found myself thinking a lot about fear this last week.Fear of the unknown. Fear of failure. Fear of not living up to what we’re capable of. Fear of showing up as our full selves and being rejected,’ she wrote on her Instagram in an honest post.
It appears the former TV anchor is facing a lot of unknowns as she heads into 2023 single and on a new career path.Baldwin left CNN after 13 years last April after she slammed the company for its lack of women leaders.
Baldwin announced in February 2022 she would be leaving the liberal network. At the time, Baldwin made the shock announcement at the start of her 3pm show, CNN Newsroom, telling viewers ‘there is just more I need to do outside the walls of this place’.
Ahead of her departure, Baldwin, who first joined CNN in 2008, sat down for an interview with podcast where she described CNN as a male-dominated network.
Baldwin’s divorce just nearly a year after she left CNN which she claimed was ‘dominated by men’. She said prior to her last day at the network: ‘The most influential anchors on our network, the highest-paid, are men. My bosses, my executives, are men’
‘The most influential anchors on our network, the highest-paid, are men. My bosses, my executives, are men. The person who oversees CNN Dayside is a man, and my executive producer for 10 years is a man. So I’ve been surrounded by a lot of men,’ Baldwin said.
Baldwin, who was temporarily pulled from the air in the build up to the 2020 election and replaced by Jake Tapper, said during the interview that she has fought for women’s stories.
‘I know I, personally, fight for women’s stories,’ Baldwin said.’I got told no a lot and I still managed to do it,’ Baldwin said, referring to the CNN series American Woman.
She noted that CNN has slowly started to give more women power but ‘we still have a bit of a ways to go. I want more women in the room’.
Baldwin’s exit may have been foreshadowed last fall when she posted a cryptic message to Instagram in October which suggested she was being forced off the air and EvDEN EVE nAkLiyAT temporarily replaced by Tapper.
Baldwin was one of the network’s highest-earning journalists, with a reported annual salary in the region of $4million
‘As the election gears up, the political maestro @jaketapper will hold down my hour and his for evden eve nakLiYAt the coming weeks.If you have any questions concerning where and the best ways to utilize EvDEn evE Nakliyat, you could call us at our own web page. Wish I was with you, but I’ll see ya on [TV] on the flip side of the election,’ she wrote on October 1.
She gave no explanation for the move, but told supporters it was ‘not my choice’ to temporarily withdraw from her afternoon slot.
She said she was going ‘nowhere’ in response to a question about her moving on elsewhere, and also dispelled speculation that the decision to step aside was for health reasons insisting that she is ‘healthy.’
Her show was then pulled for several weeks, with CNN claiming they needed more airtime for the reporters in Washington, DC.
Baldwin was one of the network’s highest-earning journalists, with a reported annual salary in the region of $4million.
The highest paid is Anderson Cooper, who is said to earn around $12million a year.
