LuAnn de Lesseps and Jacques Azoulay have ended their three-year relationship, "The Real Housewives of New York City" star's rep confirmed to Us Weekly.
"They are at different points in their life now and have mutually agreed it is best," the rep said. "LuAnn is upset, but it's amicable and they remain friends. Jacques has been a wonderful part of her life."
De Lesseps, 48, began dating the wine entrepreneur, 38, in 2010.
The couple began talking about the possibility of starting a family together during the fifth season of the Real Housewives, which aired last year.
"My chances at this point in my life of getting pregnant are not good and I know it's not going to be easy," De Lesseps said. "It's definitely not like the first time I had children. I think Fertile Myrtle has taken a little wander into the pasture.
"You know how much Jacques and I love each other. The two of us are thinking about the possibility of having a baby," she told her daughter Victoria in a preview from Monday's "Real Housewives of New York City". "I'm not saying it'll happen time and fate will tell -- but I really care about what you think about it."
De Lesseps also has a teenage son, Noel. The kids are from her former marriage to French Count Alexandre de Lesseps. They divorced in 2009 after 16 years of marriage. The former model has known to be attracted to men who make grand gestures.
"It's about the intention behind the actions," LuAnn told Us Weekly. "It's about showing the other person that you really care and are thinking of them. It's about making someone feel special."
Housewives costar Kelly Bensimon also told Us Weekly, "I love both LuAnn and Jacques and feel for them during this difficult time."
