For the longest time, Elizabeth Chambers gave off the aura of a lady who had every aspect of her life under firm control. As a journalist, TV personality, baker, entrepreneur, and occasional actress, she had her hands in several pies but made it seem so effortless. The end results were faithfully documented in glossy Instagram pictures and this fetched her the appellation of emerging lifestyle guru from Vanity Fair.
Chambers was also not slacking at the home front. As the wife of an award-winning American actor, Armand ‘Armie’ Hammer, she effortlessly switched between glamming it up for the red carpets and organizing birthday parties for her little kids. Such dexterousness made many to describe her as the perfect goddess but that illusion was shattered in July 2020 when she and her husband announced that they were going their separate ways. They maintained that they remained best friends but some sources point out that the pair had been flying solo for some time.
The Couple Simply Drifted Apart From Each Other
In a move that shocked the entire world, Elizabeth Chambers and her husband released identical statements on their respective Instagram accounts on the 10th of July in 2020, announcing that they were going their separate ways. The pair chronicled their journey from best friends, soul mates, partners, and parents and described it as incredible. They regretted that they had to turn a new page but maintained that their biggest priority was co-parenting their kids. They then asked the public to respect their privacy.
Since that announcement, Chambers and her husband are yet to speak out on what really caused their divorce and we are now left with speculations. Sources quoted by Us Weekly has it that the couple had drifted apart and were doing their own thing for some time before eventually throwing in the towel. Whether this speculation is true or false remains to be seen but one thing that is for sure is that the couple is now on the path of no return.
Chambers Is Asking For Primary Custody Of The Children And Spousal Support
Chambers filed for divorce around the 13th of July in 2020, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She listed the date of separation as July 6th and asked for primary physical custody of the kids. She also agreed to joint legal custody with her husband and asked for spousal support. Armie has now moved out of the couple’s shared home and they are in the process of agreeing on the terms of their divorce. Such reality has saddened many fans but there is nothing that can be done about it. We can only reminisce about the beautiful love story that the couple had during their time together.
It Was A Mutual Friend Who Brought The Couple Together
Elizabeth Chambers first met Armie Hammer after they were introduced by a mutual friend in 2006. As at that time, she was just beginning her TV career after graduating from Moody College of Communication at the University of Texas, Austin. Armie, on his own part, was still trying to find his feet in Hollywood, having made his debut the year before.
The two young people became fast friends and stayed in the friend zone for the next two years due to the fact that they were seeing other people. Luckily for them, their respective relationships came to an end and they thus had the freedom to commence a romance in 2008. Chambers and Hammer would date for the next two years during which their love for each other grew stronger. They did all manner of couple stuff together. They also supported each other’s creative outputs.
Given such undeniable chemistry Hammer, who had always dreamt of getting married someday, popped the big question. He made Elizabeth understand that there was no need to waste time and that they should just go ahead and enjoy their obvious connection. She bought his argument and they tied the knot in May 2010. The wedding was a stunning affair that gained a spot on Town & Country, an American lifestyle magazine.
They Welcomed Two Kids In The Course Of Their Decade-long Union
Following their nuptials, Elizabeth Chambers and her husband settled down to family life and she continued pursuing her various career paths. She also supported his own endeavors and he got his breakthrough in the 2010 film, Social Network. The success of the movie catapulted Armie to the limelight after which he went on to cement his star status with roles in films such as The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Lone Ranger, and J. Edgar. This success made the couple quite happy and their joy was further heightened after their union was blessed with kids.
Their first is a girl named Harper Grace, who was born in December 2014 while their second is a boy named Ford Douglas Armand, born in January 2017. Both Chambers and her husband made sure to spend quality family time with their kids. This family time was often documented on Instagram and the TV personality gushed that she was so in love with her kids. She also expressed her desire to have more kids with her dashing husband during a February 2020 interview. That nascent hope was crushed after the couple announced their separation five months later.
