"When I asked the boys, they said they will choose Uber Eats over my paternal care. I wasn't too impressed about that," he joked. "My boys live with their mom and they're pretty well settled there."

Danielle and Russell remain on good terms and she sent a public message to her ex in April in honour of his birthday – just eight days after the death of his beloved father, John.
