Dan Ewing has opened up on his split from wife Marni, confessing his behaviour during the collapse of their marriage is the greatest regret of his life.
The Home and Away favourite this morning told KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O that their relationship collapsed as he attempted to launch himself to international stardom in Los Angeles.
'We were in the States and I wasn’t having a good time, I was just unhappy,' Dan says of relocating to Tinsel Town with Marni and their son Archer, 2.
'I never said "hey you guys don’t make me happy." But by being unhappy with myself, I was unhappy with them.
'I was a grumpy old fool and I was really hard to deal with'
Dan insists that there was no third party involved in the split, describing his behaviour towards his loved ones during the relationship collapse as 'the biggest regret of my life'.
'I would take it back in a heartbeat. But the sad part is that it has made me a much better man and father.
'I regret not appreciating what I had. I was so concentrated on what I was going to do next and my ego and just being a typical idiot.
'I well and truly didn’t appreciate what I had.'
The couple are co-parenting their son, and Dan says he appreciates everything Marni has given up so he can pursue his dreams.
'I wouldn’t be able to do the films or TV projects if it wasn’t for Marni. 'She is an incredible woman and I love her with all my heart.'
