Washington DC [USA], October 26 (ANI): 'The Walking Dead' actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan has revealed that he "could not be more proud" of his wife, Hilarie Burton for speaking out about experiencing improper behaviour from Ben Affleck.

Burton claimed Affleck groped her when she was the host of an MTV show and the actor apologised for "acting unprofessionally".

While giving an interview to an entertainment channel, Morgan said, "ofcourse" he is happy that Affleck had apologised, reports People Magazine.

He said, "Ofcourse. I do not want to make a big deal of it because she did not, but I think everything that has come out in the last couple of weeks, starting with Harvey Weinstein, anybody who has talked about it and even those who have not yet are incredibly brave and I think it is time for change."

The 'Good Wife' star also shared that he is really proud of all the women who have come out to share their horrific experiences.

"Hopefully all this stuff is going to change this business. It is prevalent all over and I am proud of all these women. All women and my wife," noted Morgan.

Morgan, who is expecting his second child with Burton, noted that his wife is the most amazing person he has ever met.

"She is the most amazing person I have ever met. You said, she is a bit of a role model for you - she is for me as well. There is no one stronger than her. How she is able to balance all the things that she balances and be a strong voice for good is amazing and I just could not be more proud. Every single day she does something that amazes me. She has made me such a better person, so I am a lucky dude," explained Morgan.

The couple is preparing to welcome their second child, a baby girl. They are already parents to 7-year-old son, Augustus. (ANI)
