Eric said: "I would like to see them back together. They are wonderful together and I love them both dearly."

Former Playboy model Kendra is currently in the Australian jungle, appearing on the 14th series of I'm A Celeb. Her dad Eric jetted into Brisbane over the weekend to support her.

He told reporters that he flew to Australia from Costa Rica, where he lives, but made a pitstop in LA to have a chat with Hank, who is looking after the couple's children: Hank Jr, four, and six-month-old Alijah.

"[Kendra and Hank] both love their kids. You can't separate Little Hank and Hank. The kids are having a really hard time missing Kendra. The whole family is having a hard time without her."

This week, a new interview published in American magazine Us Weekly confirmed that Kendra had agreed to give Hank another chance, but warned: "It's going to take a lifetime to trust him again."

She told the magazine that Hank had explained to her what happened that led to the allegations of cheating and she was happy with his story.

All I can say is I believe Hank. I love Hank. And he's proven to me that he's worth forgiving and fighting for. He was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and unfortunate things took place. He's very gullible and naive."
