Shantel VanSanten’s husband, Victor Webster, has filed for divorce from her after a year of marriage. The One Tree Hill star and her actor husband went their separate ways at the beginning of the year, court documents have revealed.

Victor Webster Files for Divorce from Shantel VanSanten
The former Days of Our Lives star has cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the reason for divorce from his wife. He mentioned the date of separation as January 10 in his filing. Neither Webster nor VanSanten has publicly commented on their divorce.
The 50 year old actor last posted a picture with his wife on Instagram in July last year. The 37 year old actress, meanwhile, is said to have deleted her social media account. The two first met on the sets of their 2017 Hallmark film Love Blossoms and fell in love.
VanSanten and Webster Got Engaged in February 2021
After four years of being together, the couple got engaged in February 2021 when Webster proposed to VanSanten at the top of a mountain. Sharing the experience on Instagram, the latter wrote at the time, “We hiked 2000ft to the top of the mountain where @iamvictorwebster told me he loved me for the first time years ago!”
“What happened next still has me in shock … He told me he wanted to spend forever with me, as he got down on one knee and asked if I would marry him!! I didn’t say anything for a while, not out of suspense although it would have been a good prank, but because my legs stopped working.”
“I had to sit down, and I couldn’t stop crying and kissing him. I forgot to say anything at all … BUT OBVIOUSLY I SAID YES!!! I cant wait to spend FOR-EV-ER with my best friend!!!! I F—KING LOVE YOU,” added The Boys actress.
The Couple had Three Wedding Celebrations
VanSanten and Webster first tied the knot in an intimate civil ceremony at Pasadena City Hall in California in August 2021. They then got married again in October of the same year in Napa. The third celebration took place in Luverne, Minnesota, the hometown of VanSanten, in November.
“Through all of this, the biggest lesson Victor and I have learned is the resiliency of the human spirit and our hearts,” the actress said after her wedding, adding, “As I looked at my side when the world felt like it was falling apart, there stood my rock, my home, my husband.”
“As there are unwritten chapters ahead, we will surely experience more hardships on this grand adventure. I couldn’t be more sure we can overcome anything together. Relationships aren’t easy, you have to fight for it, you have to work at it. We’ve done that and we’ve put in the work and now feel settled,” she continued.
