‘This is a photo of two best friends,’ Alexis began the long note. The couple first started dating in 2014 and made their red carpet debut in 2016.

‘This guy and I have shared so much life together. Changed each other at a soul deep level. All for the better.’

She added the depth of their bond was something she could ‘never have anticipated.’

And Alexis noted she has never spent so much time with another person and ‘grown so much alongside someone else, laughed so much, cried so much, shared so much.’

Then Mixter said it was ‘odd to write about the end of a relationship, especially when the friendship that still exists is so full of life.’

That is when she said ‘change happens’ and that they had made the decision ‘quite a while ago to let ourselves grow away from what our relationship had been and into what it was becoming.’

She also said that ‘announcing a breakup on social media is a strange feeling.’

‘Having a public romantic relationship is not easy,’ she noted. ‘Ending one feels like navigating a road that doesn’t even exist. We are private people when it comes to our personal lives and I intend to keep it that way.’

She expressed her gratitude to the universe for putting this man in her life.

‘This post is a tribute to love and friendship and those relationships that make life worth living.’

She concluded, ‘Thank you J for being my best friend. The person who shares all my favorite jokes, sees who I really am and all I want to be, loves me unconditionally and makes me always strive to be bigger and better than I was yesterday. I will never stop cheering you on with every cell of my body. I will never stop loving you unconditionally.’  

The couple were very private throughout their eight year relationship and hardly ever spoke of each other.

But in January she celebrated his 40th birthday on social media.   ‘I’m a day late because yesterday was spent celebrating you, the way it should be, unplugged and surrounded by friends and family,’ the artist shared. ‘In your 40 years on this earth you’ve done so much and come so far.’

Segel was on How I Met Your Mother from 2005 until 2014 with co-stars Alyson Hannigan, Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders and Neil Patrick Harris.
