When Dan Osborne split with his ex Megan Tomlin, the couple were already expecting their first child together. And now the dad of 15-month-old Teddy, has written an open letter to his son explaining why his parents are no longer together.
The 23-year-old former TOWIE star is now engaged to EastEnders actress Jacqueline Jossa – and has 4-month-old daughter Ella with her.
“I hope you appreciate it was the right thing to do for me to not be with your mum. We weren’t in a good relationship and I didn’t want us to be miserable, so I hope you understand it’s for the best this way,” he writes in the letter addressed to both his children published in Now magazine.
“A while ago, I feared you might never meet each other and it was heartbreaking,” he wrote. “So I know how lucky I am that you get to spend as much time together as possible.
The letter comes just after Dan proposed to Jacqueline while on a family holiday in Greece – and the newly engaged couple are planning to add to their brood in the future. “I’ll let you both grow up a bit and maybe we’ll have more brothers and sisters for you,” he wrote. “I’d love to give you at least two more.”
Dan announced their engagement on Twitter, writing: ‘She said YES!!! I am the luckiest man in the world to be marrying the woman of my dreams @jacquelineMjos.’
