American TV host Karl admitted on an interview with where he said; 

“For me personally I would definitely have failures in a husband sense and hope that I can rectify my failures as a dad,”

The pair shares three children Jackson, 16, Ava, 11, and River, 10 for whom he said he wants to rebuild whatever has happened in the past.

He further stated;

“I hope I can try and rebuild whatever has happened in the past and try and make the most of what I can do with them in the future.”

Karl divulged,

“Life is life. People make mistakes. People have break ups. People mostly try to do their best and sometimes they fail, I think that we will work through it as best we can.”

It seems he is coming out positive, and also he admits he is “certainly growing up.”

He affirmed,

“I am certainly growing up. I will not be getting p**** at the Logies again. I will always have a good time but I need to be more responsible,”

Karl confessed the partying nature previously never affecting his ability as a father, but now the scenario is different which brings out the difference in a case. He further added,

'I don't have to party all the time, I don't have to go out drinking all the time, I don't have to go to the Logies and get p****d every time because I can now enjoy other things in life. I think that is just a course of time.”

The veteran TV host was married to his fellow journalist Cassandra Thorburn in their early 20s which shocking ended in September last year.  

After the split, Karl was also in sabbatical for two months and recently got back to his show with the news of Trump's Inauguration. The news of their divorce came out after the pair had celebrated Christmas last year separately. The estranged wife of Karl celebrated at the family home on Sydney's upper north shore. And at the same time, Karl celebrated Christmas with his siblings.

After the high profile divorce last year, 42-year-old Karl has confirmed he is single and will not have an affair at the moment.

Well! Karl is finding his way to rebuilding what was messed up. We hope on the way of growing up; he will probably do his best as a father.
