In an interview with Canadian Press in June 2012, Russell emphasized that the divorce was a decent one. He said: 

"It was actually a decent breakup. There were no hard feelings"

He added:

"We just realized we rushed in and didn't know each other and when we got to know each other we were kind of like, 'Hmm, I don't think this is going to work out for the rest of our lives.' And I didn't want to wait until my daughter was older and got used to seeing us together and really mess with her head."

Moreover, Russell said:

“I said, 'We should probably do it now before the baby understands anything, and then all the baby knows is mommy and daddy apart, but she knows that when mommy and daddy see each other, there's no animosity and that, 'Daddy loves you and mommy loves you and that's the bottom line.”

They eventually found out that there was no love between them to last their marriage longer.

Russell and Monica decided to get separated as they knew that having a child together wasn’t a strong reason to stay married, so they parted their way through a mutual decision.

"All the money I saved on the wedding I'm spending on the divorce,"
