How do I tell my blog readers that we've broken up?

I have a sort of popular blog and I occasionally blogged about my relationship with another blogger. We've broken up. How do I handle it?

We broke up last week, it was a reasonably amicable split after we realized there was a major incompatibility. We had been dating since late Dec after we met at a blogging conference. My blog readers and other bloggers were big fans of our relationship and loved the posts and pictures about us. We attended a lot of public events together. People would always say things like "you guys look so cute together" and "someday you guys are going to have the most adorable children." etc. etc.
It hurts because I'm still getting Tweets and emails like "I hope to see you and HISNAME at the so and so conference next year!" And other bloggers keep referencing us as an item.
Should I reveal that this is no longer the case on my blog? Just email the fellow bloggers? Have you seen other bloggers deal with this gracefully?
