— -- "Flip or Flop" hosts Tarek and Christina El Moussa may be separating, but for now their HGTV series will continue production as scheduled, according to the network.

The network said on Monday that no production changes have been made at this time.

“We admire and appreciate Tarek and Christina’s great work on 'Flip or Flop.' When it comes to matters related to their own family, we respect their privacy and honor any decision that works best for them and their children," the network said in a statement obtained by ABC News. "HGTV is currently airing episodes of 'Flip or Flop' and the series will continue production as scheduled.”

The show first premiered in 2013.

The El Moussas have been married for seven years and have two children. However, they told ABC News in a statement that they have experienced "challenges in their marriage," and as a result, they're taking time apart to "reevaluate the future" of their relationship. They also confirmed that at one point six months ago, police came to their home "in an abundance of caution," but added, "there was no violence and no charges were filed." ABC News has corroborated that information with local police.

"During this process, we are committed to our kids and being the best parents we can be," the TV hosts said. "We will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together.”

TMZ first reported the split.
