Maltby opened up about her split from Michael Allio on her “The WoMed” podcast, where she accuses her ex of dumping her just one day after her surgery.
“What’s hard in talking about this really isn’t the procedure itself, it’s what came after,” Maltby said. “The day after Michael and I got home from freezing my eggs, he … he broke up with me and I was very, very blindsided by it. Obviously [I’m] still very emotional and hurt and confused. I still don’t really have any answers. I’m in it.”
She added that “to have to come down off of the hormones while being in complete shock” was tough to handle. “[I was in] complete physical shock. I was completely blindsided.”
“I’m grieving the loss of him. I’m grieving the loss of the future that I really believed in and I’m grieving the loss of James,” Maltby said referring to Allio’s son, James, whom he shared with his late wife, Laura. “And I’m grieving the loss of safety that I felt with him for the first time.”
The “Bachelor In Paradise” star then confessed that Allio was “the first person that ever made me feel safe in a relationship, that made me feel like I was enough.”
She said that now Allio broke it off with her, and now that her security with him has been “taken away,” looking back on her egg retrieval surgery is “really hard”. “I was so proud of myself [in that moment]. Michael took great care of me. It was a very love-filled weekend,” Maltby explainied. “I was able to freeze eight eggs. Which now I am just incredibly grateful for as now I am alone.”

Michael Allio confirmed the news that many speculated — that he and Danielle Maltby are no longer together. The “Bachelor In Paradise” alum admitted that they had love for each other, but ultimately were not compatible.
“I guess I’ll just come out with it. We’re not together anymore,” Allio said on the Trading Secrets podcast. “Yeah it’s really, it’s not what we planned. We both threw a lot into this relationship and it’s really awful when it doesn’t work out. Again, like what we were talking about before you make your plan, you see your future, you start working towards it.”
“And then, when things don’t work out, when you realize that, love is there, but you’re not necessarily compatible,” he added. “You mourn the loss, not of just that person and that friend in your life, but also the future that you had envisioned. And it’s to no fault of hers.”
Allio went on to explain how he still cares and respects Maltby, even explaining how much effort she put into the relationship. “She poured everything into this. And, I’ve got, I just have so much admiration. Yeah, and I guess that’s it, you know right now,” he continued. “We’re still you know working through some things and trying to stay close. Yeah, but yeah last couple months have been really tough.”
