"This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family," Frankel told the magazine. "We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."
Frankel and Hoppy met in late 2008 before exchanging vows on March 28, 2010, an event which was broadcast during Season 1 of Frankel's Bravo reality series Bethenny Getting Married. Together, the couple have a 2-year-old daughter, Bryn.
According to the magazine, the couple's relationship has become strained after an increase in fighting, mainly over Hoppy's lack of career ambition.
Reports about Frankel's marriage ending have been circulating for months, but the reality star previously denied any plans to separate or divorce.
