The former ‘TOWIE’ hunk has a four-month-old daughter with his fiancée, Jacqueline Jossa, as well as a one-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin, and has written an open letter to them in the new issue of Now magazine, telling them they have "changed his whole life".

Dan opens the letter by taking opportunity to defend his position as a young father, writing: “Some people think that just because I’m 23 I’m too young to have children, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Come on ARSENAL!!!! ⚽️❤️

“I’d always choose to sit indoors with you both than do absolutely anything else.”

He goes on to discuss his turbulent relationship with Teddy’s mother, which ended shortly before he began dating Jacqueline.

Explaining why he and Megan split, he tells his son: “Teddy, you’re not always with us and it’s really hard for me to be without you, but we have three days a week together. When I have to take you to your mum’s, it’s the worst feeling in the world.

“It’s hard for me to explain to you now, but when you grow up, I hope you appreciate it was the right thing to do for me not to be with your mum.

“We weren’t in a good relationship and I didn’t want us to be miserable, so I hope you understand it’s for the best this way.”

My girls ❤️💗

Earlier this year, Dan was axed from ‘TOWIE’ after The Sun published leaked audio, allegedly containing violent threats made by him towards Megan.

Following the backlash that faced Dan after the footage was made public, Jacqueline leapt to his defence, insisting: “People selling stories on him, show one side to a story, but people around Dan know the whole truth, and you would all be shocked.

“I am 100 percent not saying what Daniel has said was right or okay, but people make mistakes when in dark places, and it's something we sorted out privately not in front of the whole world, it's something he has apologised for and is embarrassed about.”

Jacqueline and Dan announced that they were engaged on Monday night, after Dan proposed to the ‘EastEnders’ actress during a family holiday to Greece.
