” We actually have actually grown a lot more powerful in this time. It’s been gorgeous. I truly do feel like we are gotten ready for the best and the worst, you know, when it comes to like, wishing to see relationship all the way through,” Watson informed United States “And I seem like we’ve just experienced so much together that it’s similar to we have such a strong trust that if she’s going to inform me something, or if I’m going to inform her something, but we know that it’s even if we desire the best for each other. Which resembles, the very best thing that you can have at any relationship having a truly strong trust.”

Stauss, for her part, told Us that ahead of the pandemic she was “intending on taking a trip back and forth a fair bit or relocating to L.A.” to be closer to Watson.

Ahead of their split, the pair launched a second album, Covered Under the Tree, in December.

” This is the second album @tellemwatson and I have actually composed during the pandemic and can I just state: It’s been hard,” Stauss wrote through Instagram at the time along with a photo of the duo wearing matching holiday pajamas. “We are so proud of whatever we’ve achieved this year regardless of the situations and feel SO fortunate we had the ability to do everything we have actually done.”
