“We still care for each other and ask for privacy at this difficult time, in particular for our son Ethan who remains our number one priority.”
Her sport star ex has also spoken out about the end of their four-year relationship, telling his online followers,
“Dannii and I have a deep mutual love and respect for each other and although things have not worked out we have a gorgeous son together that we both love and implore everyone to respect our privacy at this challenging time.”
