Usually bad things come in threes, but celeb splits seem to be coming in waves in these early weeks of 2012.
The latest victim? “The Price is Right” host Drew Carey and his fiancee, Nicole Jaracz, who are calling it quits after being engaged for almost five years.
According to People, Carey and Jaracz got engaged in October 2007, and have been raising Jaracz’s 6-year-old son Connor from a previous relationship together. Carey’s rep says the breakup is an amicable one, and that the TV host will remain in Connor’s life.
“He and Nicole still have a great deal of love and affection for one another,” the rep tells People. “He will still be very involved with their son’s life.”
Carey notoriously lost 80 pounds in 2010, and he told Parade at the time that Connor was the reason he wanted to get healthier. When he got winded chasing the tyke around, Carey says, “I thought, I’m never going to see him graduate high school.”
