Dan Ewing and his fiancée Kat Risteska have announced they are expecting their first child together, with the actor making the announcement on Sunday on his social media platforms (March 20).
The 36-year-old SAS Australia star posted a video reel to Instagram announcing the couple’s happy news. The pair share a beautiful kiss in the video, which also shows Risteska’s developing baby bulge, while Justin Bieber’s ‘Anyone’ plays in the background.
“The second miracle is on its way!” The video was captioned by Dan. “@katristeska, my older brothers Archie and Boston, as well as myself, are very excited to meet our new little buddy!!”
This will be the couple’s first child and Dan’s second (he had son Archie in 2014), with Boston referring to Dan and Kat’s lovely black pug.
Kat also posted a similar photo to her Instagram account, captioning it, “I’ve waited my whole life for you Angel.”
“Both @ danewing and I are ecstatic to be adding to our family. Archie and Boston, Mummy, Daddy, and Big Bro, can’t wait to meet you. Little one, you are already very adored.”
Dan and Kat started dating in 2016 and announced their engagement on Christmas Day last year, with Dan confirming the news with a breathtaking photo of his fiancée’s diamond ring.
Dan Ewing has played Heath Braxton on Home and Away since 2011, leaving in 2014 before returning in 2016 and again at the beginning of 2021.
He has stated that he would be interested in resuming the role in the future, complimenting the soap’s current plots and direction.
“Would I scoff at it [returning to H&A] because it’s at the bottom of the rung?” He said no in November of last year.
“I think what they’re doing right now is incredible.” They’ve updated all of their cameras and spent a lot of money on production value, as the trained eye can see.
“Some people strive to leave Home and Away in their wake, but I think it’s a good thing. I find it amusing when people refuse to discuss it! It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “I’m a huge fan of everyone on there.”
