Interior designer and The Block judge Shaynna Blaze has revealed she and husband Steve Vaughan are separating after 18 years of marriage.

Taking to Instagram on Thursday evening, Shaynna shared the news with her fans, and asked for privacy during this tough time.

“Sometimes in life, our paths change directions and now this is one of those times for me with Steve and I separating,” read her message.

“I will not be making any further statements about this and whilst I appreciate your support I ask that you respect our right to privacy.”

After meeting at a bar in Melbourne almost two decades ago, the pair dated for 11 months before tying the knot.

It was only earlier this year when the interior designer opened up about how she and the personal trainer kept their relationship alive.

“The secret is every time we go out, it actually is date night,” she told New Idea in May.

“You treat each other as your date, rather than just expecting them to always be there.

‘When you catch up, you just make sure that you’re present. You make sure that you’re there with each other and always touching base.”

Shaynna has two children, Jesse and Carly, from a previous relationship. 

She’s on television screens at the moment as a judge on The Block alongside Darren Palmer and Neale Whitaker, Channel Nine’s Buying Blind and has been a presenter on Selling Houses Australia since 2008.
