At the time of their separation, Bush's rep told E! News in a statement, "After almost 20 years of marriage they have separated for the moment to evaluate their life together. They love each other and their children deeply and are committed to a bright future."

Despite calling it quits, Billy and Sydney put on a united front for the sake of their family. Over Mother's Day weekend this year, the former Today co-host expressed the utmost appreciation for his partner of almost two decades. "Where the three greatest girls get their loving foundation," he wrote. "Their awesome and amazing Mom!"

In 2016, Bush departed from the Today show after he became the subject of a scandal involving a lewd conversation with President Donald Trump that leaked to the press. 

E! News has reached out to Bush's rep for comment.
