Ewan McGregor's wife and daughter 'exclude' actor from family following 'affair' scandal

Ewan McGregor’s family appear to have officially moved on from the Hollywood actor, excluding him from a New Year family photo following his ‘affair’ scandal.

Ewan’s estranged wife, Eve, confessed that she was “thankful” for her “caring daughters”, with the couple’s daughter, Clara, further fuelling speculation that Ewan is no longer a part of their lives.

Posting on Instagram, Clara shared a photo of herself in the sea alongside her mother and sisters, and Anouk, Esther, and Jamyan.

She captioned the image with: “My lil family of women thank you @evemcgregor123 we owe it all to you.”

Eve promptly regrammed the photo, adding: “Happy 2018! I am so thankful for my loving, caring girls.

“Happy, peaceful and adventurous New 2018 to all my friends and family. With love…”

Ewan hit the headlines in October when he was pictured kissing his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a London diner, despite being married to Eve for 22 years.

It was later reported that Eve had been left “furious” by Ewan’s fling with Mary Elizabeth, with sources adding that she is “convinced” the pair had an affair behind her back.

It was previously claimed that Ewan told Eve that he had feelings for his 32-year-old co-star back in May, however, he insisted that nothing had happened between them.

An insider added: “Eve is sure Ewan and Mary were together before he confessed his feelings for her. It is hard for her to believe him.

“This situation is extremely difficult for her and their four children.”

Eve had welcomed Mary Elizabeth into her and Ewan’s family home after she was cast alongside her husband in the US TV show.

Ewan and Mary Elizabeth started filming Fargo in Calgary, Canada, in January, with Ewan and Eve’s marriage said to have “abruptly” hit the rocks over the summer, with it reportedly “clear” that the pair had grown close when Ewan returned home from shooting.

An insider revealed last month: “Eve wanted to work through it but a month later it was clear Ewan had made his decision. Eve was his love and supported his career.

“They think he might be having a mid-life crisis and that is why he is pursuing his relationship with Mary at the expense of his family.”

Shortly after news of the scandal broke, oldest daughter Clara appeared to publicly side with her mother, posting a photo of Eve with Ewan cropped out to Twitter, writing: “How frickin gorgeous is my mama?? Strongest, smartest most loving woman I know. My rock.”
