‘Surprising my daughter after almost a year apart. A moment I have dreamed and fantasized about for so long,’ Ethan wrote alongside the clip.
‘I can’t articulate how tough this stretch has been. It’s indescribable and incomprehensible. COVID has taken away our ability to travel freely, and physically be with our loved ones.’
‘But love transcends the physical, and the distance and lost time has only strengthened our bond. We’re here and now, and our hearts are full again,’ he added.
‘To the parents who have been separated from their children because of this year’s events, and to those who can’t see their loved ones at Christmas, I send you all my love and strength. To my daughter, you are my entire heart.’
