Dan Ewing may be presently struggling his way through SAS Australia, but he was best known for his on-screen romance with Bianca Scott on Home & Away before this arduous assignment.
That’s correct, the River Boy was a big favourite at Summer Bay, so much so that when he returned as Heath Braxton for a cameo appearance earlier this year, fans went crazy.
Heath’s happy ever after came in the shape of a romance with Bianca Scott (played by Lisa Gormley) during his first tenure on the long-running drama, but off-screen, a new lady is capturing Dan’s heart.
For three years, the actor was married to Marni Little, with whom he has seven-year-old son Archer. In December 2015, the former couple called it quits on their marriage.
It was a new beginning for Dan after his traumatic divorce as he launched his new romance with ballerina Kat Risteska.
In 2016, the Home & Away actor revealed their romance by posting a candid snapshot of the brunette beauty writing on a Christmas card on Instagram.
Dan joked in the post, adding the hashtags “#easeupcuz” and “will stab you,” saying, “You know you’re dating a girl from the west when she makes sending a Christmas letter look Thug.”
According to a source at the time, the two had known one other for years and had even crossed paths on the set of Home & Away, where Kat had temporarily worked as a young actress herself.
“They met when she was 19 since she used to work for the same management group as Dan. As a result, they’ve both known her for quite some time,” a source told the newspaper.
Dan revealed in an interview with Channel Seven’s The Morning Show in 2018 that he was the one who originally sought Kat on social media.
He added, “I was single for approximately eight months, give or take… and then it was simply months of following her [online]!”
Dan commemorated the four-year anniversary of his and Kat’s dating with a gushing social media post last year.
“It’s been four years, Boo. In the long caption, the SAS star wrote, “4 years of you making me a better person and me making you….eat more red meat and obsess about basketball…”
“You exemplify the phrase’show me, don’t tell me.’ A soul that is older than a “ancient soul”… Perhaps the soul of a seductive Amazon warrior? What are your thoughts? Is it just me? What is my fantasy? Okay, that’s cool…”
He added stated he was “really lucky” to have Kat in his life since she “makes everyone around you better.”
While Dan has yet to put a ring on it, rumours have been circulating for years that the Chasing Comets star wants to marry Kat.
A close acquaintance earlier told New Idea, “It’s not an issue of if, but when.” “I believe we will hear something very soon,” says the narrator. I’m sure they’re both over over heels in love and can’t wait to make it official.”
So, will we soon hear wedding bells? Keep an eye on the situation!
