“To say that I am totally devastated doesn’t even come close to describing how I feel for myself and for my family,” Branch, 39, said in a statement to media outlets on Thursday. “The rug has been completely pulled from underneath me and now I must figure out how to move forward.

"With such small children, I ask for privacy and kindness.”
