Kris Smith: 'Dannii Split Is A Struggle'
But model insists they remain 'the best of friends'...
Male model 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 player has now opened up on Australian TV show 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 respect for one another.
"Just taking it one day at a time."
The 33-year-old 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.
