Dan Ewing of Home and Away has announced his engagement to Kat Risteska.
On Christmas Day, the 36-year-old posted the happy news to Instagram, showing off her stunning diamond ring.
‘All I want for Christmas is…,’ Dan captioned a photo of her hand and ring on Instagram.
Underneath the image, the couple received a slew of good messages from fans and followers.
‘YAY,’ Dan’s SAS Australia co-star Erin Holland commented, adding a love heart emoji.
‘Congratulations, mate,’ said musician Pete Murray. ‘Excellent stuff.’
Dan gave Kat an oval diamond engagement ring with a one-of-a-kind gold band setting.
Dan and Kat have been dating since 2016 and are still going strong.
Dan stated to New Idea that he and his girlfriend are preparing to relocate to Queensland in order to be closer to his seven-year-old son Archie, whom he shares with his ex-wife Marni Little.
The Covid-19 border restrictions, according to the Sydney-based actor, have delayed him from seeing his kid for months.
‘It’s been difficult,’ he said. ‘It’s tougher than I ever imagined.’ It’s difficult to be apart from him. You feel like you’re losing out on so much every day. ‘Video and phone conversations don’t replace being present.’
He went on to say that, as much as he’ll miss Sydney, he’ll miss his son much more.
Dan also mentioned that moving closer to Marni and her new spouse David Robertshaw will be wonderful, describing them as ‘one big family.’
