Gypsy Rose Blanchard is looking to make her split from husband Ryan Scott Anderson official. 

On Monday, the 32-year-old Louisiana resident filed for divorce from her husband of just under two years, ET has confirmed. According to court records, Blanchard filed just before 2 p.m. in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. The filing has yet to be assigned a judge and is still being processed. 

The legal filing comes just one week after she announced in a private Facebook post obtained by People that they were separating. 

"People have been asking what is going on in my life. Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents [sic] home down the bayou," she wrote at the time. "I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this. I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now I need time to let myself find… who I am."

ET reached out Blanchard's reps following the divorce filing on Monday who shared that she would not be releasing a new statement and that viewers will be able to see get the full story when her new show debuts on Lifetime in June. 

"Gypsy Rose Blanchard has openly shared her life with Lifetime and our cameras from the moment she was paroled. Her story, including her relationship with Ryan, will continue to unfold on Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up, debuting this June on Lifetime," the network said. 

In an Instagram post over the weekend, Anderson addressed the split and echoed Lifetime's statement, telling his followers that they will see what "really happened" when their docuseries, Gypsy Rose: Life After Lock Up, releases in two months. 

"Hey, everybody, I just wanted to say thank you all for the support and the nice messages I've been getting from people," he said in the video. "Y'all will see what really happened on Lifetime. We were filming a lot so stay tuned for that."

In January, ET spoke with Blanchard and Anderson about their semi-newlywed bliss and their plans for the future, which they said at the time included children and establishing their lives together. 

"I don't have any reservations," she said of having kids. "We both have talked about starting a family, we just don't know when yet."

"My life is a little hectic right now. So we're just trying to take it day by day," she shared. "We're just trying to start off the marriage on a good foot before we bring kids into this situation right now."
