Karl Stefanovic Opens Up On Marriage Split For The First Time!

Karl Stefanovic Opens Up On Marriage Split For The First Time!

Karl Stefanovic’s split last year from wife of 21 years, Cassandra Thorburn, shocked the entertainment industry when it was announced.

On Friday, Stefanovic spoke out in a candid interview with The Herald Sun, about the separation and the failures he feels as a father and husband.

The Today Show co-host said: ‘For me personally I would definitely have failures in a husband sense and hope that I can rectify my failures as a Dad’.

The couple share three children together Jackson, 16, Ava, 11, and River 10. The TV host said he hopes the situation doesn’t affect the relationship he has 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.”

“It’s not their fault. For me I just want to be there for my kids as much as I can. It’s not easy on anyone and the priority has to be on the children in any situation. For me the only issue was the burden of paparazzi around my family in the initial months. That is regrettable, that is hard to explain to a kid and I think it is awful for kids,” Stefanovic continued.

The 42 year old Today show host moved out of the family home last year following the separation and spent time in his mate James Packer’s Bondi apartment.

While Stefanovic didn’t go into any detail on the cause of the spilt he did have kind words for his ex wife Thorburn saying what an ‘amazing woman’ she is.

“It’s a real burden emotionally for both people breaking up after a long and successful marriage. 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.”
