Until now!

In an interview with People, the couple is finally coming clean about the truth behind the cheating scandal that's rocked their marriage for about a year. Hank begins the story by saying that he saw a couple smoking pot in a grocery store parking lot back in April of last year. He asked them where he could purchase some, so they gave him an address to go where he could pick up the goods.

Once he arrived at the address, Hank said he saw "something I never though I would see in my life"—two transgender women who were making out with each other. "I didn't engage in anything," Hank says, saying that one of the women fondled him under his shorts but it didn't go any further. "It was like a bank robbery. You never know when you'll freeze. I don't know if it was a couple of seconds or 15 seconds, because all I was saying was get out, get out, get out."

Hank says he wanted to keep the incident private because he's an "alpha-male" former football player, but eventually wife Kendra found out and "went ballistic" and threatened divorce. But now, through therapy, the couple has worked through it and Kendra insists that her husband is not a cheater. "I don't say the word 'cheat,'" she tells the mag. "I can say he was not loyal to me. I don't care about the act. I care about how he reacted to it and how I was told by the media what happened."

Now, the married couple of six years is moving forward and learning from Hank's mistake. "I'm actually very happy Hank went through this now because he's able to teach his son and his daughter what it's like to make a mistake and what you do after making a mistake," Kendra said of their kids, Hank Jr. and Alijah.
"I feel extremely free," Hank added now that his secret is out. We bet!
