Kris Smith has spoken out for the first time since announcing his split from Dannii Minogue.
Both Kris and Dannii have stayed quiet on the subject of their separation, despite a number of rumours as to the cause of the split, but the former rugby league player has now opened up on 'The Circle'.
Appearing on the Aussie breakfast show, he said,
"It's a struggle, but you know we're the best of friends and we have a massive mutual love and respect for one another.
"Just taking it one day at a time."
The 33-year-old also revealed that their 21-month-old son Ethan was "a blessing" at such a difficult time.
"He's sensational," he added.
"He just picks you up every single day."
Apart from tweeting news of the break-up three weeks ago, Dannii has yet to comment.
