How Braunwyn Windham-Burke and Sean Are Celebrating the Holidays 2022 Amid Their Divorce

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum Braunwyn Windham-Burke and her ex Sean Burke may be in the midst of a divorce, but as they told PEOPLE in a joint statement on December 13, they're still "looking forward to the holidays" with their kids, Bella, Rowan, Jacob, twins Caden and Curren, Koa, and Hazel.

"We will both say, the beginning of our divorce was tough — tougher than we thought it would be," the former couple said. "However, due to some recent changes we have both made, we are working toward a much better place this holiday season."

"You have to understand, we have been companions for over a quarter of a century — that's a super long time," the statement continued. "This transitional period from separation into divorce is new to us, especially with unexpected private family court matters being made public. We are looking forward to the holidays with our children, and ringing in a hopeful new year. We send love to those going through a divorce this holiday season."

The update comes approximately two months after Braunwyn filed for divorce from Sean. As RHOC fans may recall, she came out as a lesbian in an interview with GLAAD in 2020. Sean was quick to show his support, and the two went on to navigate what they called a "modern marriage" until August 2021, when they confirmed their "trial separation."

Following this year's divorce announcement, Braunwyn told PEOPLE, "Those who have followed our story probably aren’t surprised to find out how difficult attempting to create a ‘modern family’ is. For the protection, integrity, and love for my children, that’s all I will share as I navigate this new chapter. I will always have so much love for the family we created that will continue to flourish and thrive."
