Karen first met David at the UK premiere of the Disney film Coco in January 2018, and the pair hit it off straight away. "When you meet someone, you don't know how you will get along - but we just clicked," Karen told HELLO!. "It happens when you least expect it, and you go, 'wow, that was so unexpected'." So with a potential prodigy a welcome possibility, could a baby be the next thing to catch them off guard? "You never know what might happen in the future, but for now I am really happy, we are really content."

Almost two years after meeting, there are some things in particular that keep Karen and David's relationship strong. "The big thing is the level of communication between the two of us," Karen told HELLO!. "Having someone so supportive is an incredible thing. He is my rock, absolutely. I can come home in tears and say, 'Look what has happened to me today', and he will go, 'It is all going to be okay', and of course it is. He understands me and accepts me - and he is a really good cook!"
