New York (ANI): Balthazar Getty and wife Rosetta say they have reconciled after almost calling it quits two years ago when Balthazar had a very public affair with British actress Sienna Miller.
"Here's the bottom line: It was a very challenging time for everybody involved, but I loved and missed my family too much not to make it work," the New York Daily News quoted Balthazar as saying in the October issue of Harper's Bazaar. "Rosetta is understanding enough and spiritual enough to let us try," he said.
Balthazar said life with his wife of 10 years and four children feels 'like we're better than we've ever been'. Balthazar announced his separation from Rosetta in summer 2008 amidst his affair with Miller, which carried on until May 2009.
However, Rosetta said dealing with the public embarrassment from her husband's affair – which was captured in photos of him often kissing a topless Miller in Italy – was heartbreaking. "I'm going to have to explain this to my daughters one day," she said. "I chose not to act from ego because I just felt like it would be too crushing for my children," she added.
Rosetta says that speaking out about the scandal may help others who are dealing with similar problems. "I'm open to talking about it because I believe we go through things in a public way to help other people get through it," she said. "I'd love to talk about it more with people when I''m clearer about it," she added.
