Their split came out of nowhere and shocked most members of Bachelor Nation not named Nick Viall, but it’s true: Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray are done.

Believe it or not, the split is as amicable as it was abrupt.

“There was no cheating, no event or incident that led to [this],” says a source of why Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray broke up, and his mom says the same.

Murray’s mother, Lauren Goodhart Murray, weighed in on Facebook Friday, writing: “Yes it’s true, Andi & Josh have chosen to break off their engagement.”

“Andi and Josh spent their engagement working on their relationship and it just didn’t work out. They figured out that they’re not supposed to be together.”

“Although there was no one thing that precipitated their decision, they were thoughtful & wise in their decision and I’m happy they figured this out.”

Better now, she says, than after “getting married & having kids.”

Goodhart Murray went on to write of The Bachelorette tandem: “The engagement time did it’s job in helping them determine what’s best for them.”

“I know we all wanted the storybook ending but I trust The Lord has an even better journey for each of them and that makes my heart happy.”

“Thank you for your love and messages,” she concluded.

“I’m overwhelmed & humbled by your words. XO”

Dorfman and Murray got engaged on The Bachelorette last May and both live in Atlanta, and remain friends, but both are back on the market now.

As for her third-place finisher, Chris Soules?
