Poueu and Anderson met on The Biggest Loser during season 9 of the hit NBC show. Poueu and Anderson got married at Saint Paul's Catholic Church in San Francisco in April of 2012. Anderson accepted Poueu's proposal during an episode of the Loser.

The Biggest Loser couple didn't always have the easiest time during their courtship. Poueu tragically fell several stories from a building in September of 2011. Poueu was in critical condition and treated for a pelvic injury, torn ligaments, a punctured lung and a broken leg.

"He said early on that he lived for me," Anderson told People at the time. "He wanted to be married to me. He wanted to have children with me and grow old with me."

"To know someone fought so hard, not only for the family they have, but for the family they dream of - that's pretty powerful."

Now it seems times have changed, although neither has filed divorce papers yet, they are in the process of splitting up.

In January, the couple announced that they were expecting their first child, expected to be born in July. "Just from the experience of her being my caretaker post-accident, it was a dead giveaway that she'd be a fantastic mother," Poueu said to Us Weekly about Anderson. "That was an early sign for me that our child is going to have the best mother ever."

"Given everything we both have been through this past year, this [pregnancy] eclipsed everything. It put everything back into perspective. I felt like this was one of the many reasons God kept me alive during the five-story fall, so I could be the father of my wife's baby," Poueu said about the devoted Anderson.

No word on why they're exactly splitting, but it must be pretty serious if the Biggest Loser couple is doing it only 2 months prior to the birth of their child.

Especially when just in January, Anderson said about her husband: "Sam has been wonderful."
