says his battle with alcoholism has brought him and his daughters closer together. The former "Baywatch" star's daughters, 20-year-old Taylor-Ann and 18-year-old Hayley, released a video of him drunkenly lying on the floor shirtless while trying to eat a cheeseburger in 2007 to make him confront his behavior.
He is grateful to his children for doing that because it made him realize how much they care for him and he claims their actions also helped other youngsters deal with their alcoholic parents. He said in an interview with The Sun newspaper, "I have learned from my mistakes, I have learned from everything."
"The best part about it [the video] was what it did for my children. So many children called and said that their parents are just like that. They asked, 'What do we do?' It gave my children a great place to say, 'Hey, you just love them, because we love my dad more than anything and it brought us closer to each other.' "
"And in the end it's a video. Who cares, you know? I am still here. In the end a lot of people who saw that video laughed at it, most of the people that saw that video see themselves."
David has gone through two marriage breakdowns. He was married to his first wife Catherine Hickland for five years from 1984 and filed for divorce from Taylor-Ann and Hayley's mother Pamela Bach in 2006.
But despite his relationship woes, the 58-year-old entertainer insists he has no regrets about either marriage. He said, "You know in the end my last marriage was fantastically successful. I had 20 years with my ex. And you know, we all grow, we all change. Sometimes if you don't change together or you don't grow together you can grow apart."
