After splitting from his wife, Cassandra Thorbun last September, Karl Stefanovic has finally spoken out about the demise of his 21-year marriage.
In a revealing interview with The Herald Sun, the Today host stated he had ‘failed as a father and a husband’.
‘For me personally I would definitely have failures in a husband sense and hope that I can rectify my failures as a Dad,” Karl said.
The TV personality admitted he hopes the reasons for the couple's split (which he didn't go into) doesn't affect his relationship with his kids.
‘I hope I can try and rebuild whatever has happened in the past and try and make the most of what I can do with them in the future.’
Karl and Cassandra share three children together - Jackson, 16, Ava, 11, and River 10.
'It’s not their fault. For me I just want to be there for my kids as much as I can,' he added.
Despite the shock split, the 42-year-old had nothing but praise for his ex, labeling Cassandra 'an amazing woman'.
‘It’s a real burden emotionally for both people breaking up after a long and successful marriage,’ he continued.
‘Life is life. People make mistakes. People have break ups. People mostly try to do their best and sometimes they fail.
'I think that we will work through it as best we can.’
