Esther McGregor, the daughter of Hollywood actor Ewan, has written a song after it was revealed her parents are divorcing.

There’s been a very public fallout within the McGregor family ever since Ewan, 46, was spotted kissing actress and Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, 32, in a London restaurant back in October.

Since then, the controversy increased, after his wife Eve, 51, was left furious and accused the two of having an affair while the pair were still together. After daughter, Clara, 21, shared an Instagram photo of the family and excluding her father, it implied there was certainly some ill feeling towards their famous dad.

Now, Esther has shared a short clip performing a song, Made You A Man, to her 5.6k Instagram followers.

‘Waking up so lonely, I’m taking my time…’ the acoustic song begins. ‘I read some dumb shit that I found online’ she continues.

Followed by: ‘Happy birthday to me, am I right? And I don’t know to forgive. I don’t know if I can. Ruining me. Show me your man. And I don’t know to forgive. Don’t know if I can.’

Fans filled her comments section with praise for her talent, as well as support for her and the family, while blasting Ewan for his alleged affair.

‘Beautiful…. so sorry for your pain, he abandoned his wife and children , that is really heart breaking… some day he will regret turning away from his family… will pray for all of you…. you are very talented,’ one user said.

Another shared: ‘So sorry for what you are going through. Can’t believe your father would behave this way’ and one saying: ‘Amazing voice! So sorry for your pain. I wish you a lot of courage’.

The actor’s Golden Globes speech caused yet more anger, when he thanked his new girlfriend, sparking further outrage and criticism.

Clara did, however, congratulate him on his Globes win, saying: ‘Congrats pops’ on her Snapchat story, but the feelings of the McGregor women still appear mixed.
