Playing 'Bachelor in Paradise' Couple Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton Split

Looks like the wedding is off between Bachelor in Paradise stars Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton.

A source tells ET that the 32-year-old former pro baseball player and the 26-year-old esthetician, who got engaged on the finale of Bachelor in Paradise season 3, broke up a couple of weeks ago.

"Their relationship had been on the rocks for a while," the source says. "People were surprised they were together for as long as they were."

There have been previous signs that the two's relationship didn't exactly translate seamlessly into the real world following the show, when Murray relocated from Atlanta, Georgia, to Stanton's apartment in Irvine, California, earlier this summer. Back in September, the source told us that the two had already broken up multiple time since their engagement.

"It's been a tough road," the source told ET about Murray and Stanton's relationship at the time. "They have broken up a couple times since getting home and have had a rough start to their relationship. Part of it in the beginning was the distance, and the other part was added pressures like dating in the 'real world.'"

Still, it appears there might be some hope of a reconciliation between the two. Stanton and Murray were together over the weekend, and were accompanied by Stanton's 4-year-old daughter, Kinsley. Stanton is also mom to her 2-year-old daughter, Charlie, who Murray is also close to.

"I will always love this precious little angel," Murray captioned a pic of himself hugging Kinsley on Saturday.

Interestingly enough, Stanton also tried on wedding dresses with Are You the One? star Mikala Thomas at David's Bridal over the weekend, and Instagrammed a pic for a sponsored post.

ET spoke to Murray in September on the set of Bachelor in Paradise, when he called Stanton the "best woman [he's] met in his entire life."

"I'm so in love right now," Murray gushed about the mother of two. "Amanda is an amazing woman. She is the best woman I've ever met in my entire life… She's beautiful not only on the outside, but it radiates on the inside, and that’s what I love the most about her."

And earlier this month, the wedding was still apparently on when we talked to them at 102.7 KIIS-FM's Jingle Ball. "We're enjoying life, enjoying the kids and having a good time. We love each other. We're having a great time," Murray said.

"I feel like we've been through a lot in the past couple of months. I mean, kind of merging our families together," Stanton added. "He brought his dog with him, he's meeting my kids. So, it's been a lot, but I definitely feel like we've gotten stronger through it. We're really happy."
