In the wake of of the split, however, Ali has already moved out of the home they shared, because "she's actually really upset right now," a pal says.

"She's devastated, and she's just going to be laying low for a while." Adds another source of the couple: "They haven't been well for a long time."

"Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one," another insider said, despite the outwardly happy appearance the couple was known for.

"They're either extremely happy or they can't stand each other."

Sad news from The Bachelorette world today, as 2010's engaged pair ... no longer is.

"Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship," their rep said. "As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple's privacy."

The duo's romance unfolded in 2010 on the sixth season of the reality show, when she sent home Chris Lambton and accepted Roberto's proposal on the season finale.

In October, Ali Fedotowsky downplayed rumors that their relationship was on the rocks, saying there were other reasons for putting their wedding plans on hold.

"We didn't meet in the most traditional way. We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged," Fedotowsky said.

"We are still figuring out our lives as individuals."

The 27-year-old maintained she had still planned to tie the knot with her former fiancé. "We're still engaged, we're still living together," she said at the time.

No more. Are you surprised their relationship unraveled? In the grand scheme, dating for a year and a half is pretty successful by Bachelor standards ...

Ali Fedotowsky of The Bachelorette fame is still together with her season's winner, Roberto Martinez, but says they are not planning a wedding as of right now.

The 27-year-old is aware of fact that it's been more than a year since viewers witnessed their engagement, but says they are quite content taking it slow.

"We're still engaged and living together," Ali said, deflecting rumors that they're on the rocks. "We just don't feel the need to walk down the aisle right now."

Ali Fedotowsky says the pair is doing just fine, but that pressure to set a date following their televised courtship and engagement overwhelmed them.

Another complication: difficulty in scheduling a TV wedding.

"When we actually did have a date that worked for us [last August], I had to have knee surgery ... No wedding is simple but this is even more complicated."

"We didn't meet in the most traditional way," she adds. "We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged."

"We are still figuring out our lives as individuals."

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez got engaged on The Bachelorette season finale in the summer of 2010, with the actual proposal taking place months earlier.

They've been together the whole time since, living in San Diego and going about their lives. But with no wedding on the horizon, is there trouble afoot?

According to Us Weekly, more than you even KNOW.

While Ali Fedotowsky has blamed the postponements on scheduling conflicts and a bad kickboxing injury, "pals" say their issues run way deeper than that.

"Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one," a mutual friend says of the pair, whose nuptials were supposed to be an ABC Bachelorette special.

Due to both of them working long hours and other stresses taking their toll on the couple, "They're either extremely happy or can't stand each other."

"They bring out the worst in each other," the source adds, noting that after one spat, "Ali was in tears ... she's miserable in the relationship and he is too."

For what it's worth, Ali seemed very happy in her interview with THG this summer, and this is the first we've heard of any strife between them. Time will tell.

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are still planning on walking down the aisle. Walking being the operative term - it's out of the question right now.

Since her knee surgery in July, she has not been able to work out, she told THG in an exclusive interview last week. Once she heals, she'll reassess!

"I don't want to limp down the aisle!" she told Us Weekly.

Another reasons for postponing her nuptials? She doesn't want to overshadow [recent Bachelorette couple] Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum.

"She really wants her wedding next summer," says a source.

Not that there's a rush. As Ali Fedotowsky said last week, "I want to be married, but when the time is right. In my mind, we are already married."

ABC will reportedly film the affair when it happens.

Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is still engaged to her final rose recipient, Roberto Martinez, and loving life as a morning show correspondent in San Diego.

Well, for the most part. A recent injury really set her back! In an exclusive interview, Fedotowsky told us how Ab Cuts is aiding her recovery from a fractured femur.

Remind us not to take up kickboxing.

She also reflected on her stint as The Bachelorette, told us what her life has been like since, and talked all about this season's happy ending for Ashley Hebert.

Here's our chat with Ali:

Brad Womack's final rose is set to be doled out on The Bachelor season finale Monday. Reigning Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky knows who she'd give it to.

"I think both girls are great... but in the last two episodes, his connection with Emily [Maynard] has been undeniable," Fedotowsky told Us Weekly.

What makes Brad and Emily such a great fit?

Secrets of The Bachelor Finale

HE'S THE ONE: Roberto was for Ali. Will Brad be for Emily?

"It's been the little things that he's done - like he had that little picnic for her at the beginning outside. He is just so smitten with her," Ali said of "Brad's" courtship.

THG NOTE: Seriously, Al, you were on the show. You can at least give props to host-pimp Chris Harrison, who we all know sets up dates for his employees.

Anyway, Ali says when Brad is with Emily Maynard, the truest sign of love is that "he wants to do anything to sort of reassure her - like telling her he loved her."

"They are both southern and polite, and I just think they'd make a really cute little couple. All along I thought it was going to be those two," she admits.

What do you think? Who should Brad choose on the Bachelor finale?

You don't really need The Bachelor spoilers or the reigning Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky, to tell you who Brad Womack has eyes for this season.

Ali's top pick, if she were doling out roses on Brad's behalf? Southern sweetie Emily Maynard, the 24-year-old widow and single mom. Shocker!

"I think he’d be a great match with Emily," Ali said. "Sweet, southern, knockout, beautiful beautiful. She seems like a total package to me."

The Fox 5 San Diego correspondent, who visited The Bachelor to "assist Brad" with fiance Robert Martinez, also clicked with Chantal O'Brien.

"She's so raw - matter of fact, down-to-earth," Fedotowsky said. "I don't know as much about a match with Brad, but I like her personally."

Those are our two picks to make the final rose ceremony as well. We just get a feeling they have an edge over all the other girls, don't you?

What do you think? Brad Womack should totally pick ...

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are serious about getting married.

So much so, the engaged Bachelorette couple almost did it quickie-style in Vegas! They decided against it, but only because they want a real wedding.

After the twosome watched Jason and Molly Mesnick renew their vows, "I was like, 'Maybe we should just go with them and get married," Ali revealed.

Will Ali and Roberto make it to the altar?

But "that probably would have upset a lot of people" so the pair, who plan to spend Christmas in Tampa with his family, are focusing on plans for a 2011 affair.

Said Ali Fedotowsky, "I've been looking at wedding things and I'm always like, 'That looks tacky. Maybe it's just the ones I've seen are really matchy, matchy."

"I want to make it a little different. Very light and air, I guess, is my theme."

"Thrilled to be a part of the Fox 5 San Diego news team! My 1st segment is Monday morning. Love being involved with the community this way," Fedotowsky Tweeted yesterday.

No word yet on what kind of topics Ali will handle, but we guess she deserves props for choosing this pay-billing route over another, less clothed offer that recently came her way.
