Katherine and Andrew keep their children out of the spotlight

Katherine welcomed daughter Aaliyah in 2015

In an interview last year, Katherine gave a rare insight into her home life, admitting that she won’t speak to Aaliyah and Xander in the run-up to a big performance in order to rest her vocal chords. Appearing on This Morning, she explained: "They think it's a game. When I get up in the morning, my daughter says, 'Mummy, are you talking today?' It's a massive game of charades."

And in 2019, she spoke about her experience of motherhood to HELLO!, ahead of Xander's arrival. "Everybody says, 'Your life will never be the same,' but I didn't expect to feel so chilled and relaxed about life," she admitted. "My husband and I love being parents and Aaliyah makes us so happy. She's fun, kind and affectionate – and a mummy's girl."
