Catherine and Michael have always been extremely family-focused and this year has been no exception. Earlier in 2020, the mother-of-two opened up to the Today Show about how she has enjoyed the time she has had quarantining with her two children.  

While she and husband Michael typically keep their children out of the spotlight, Catherine opened up about how much she enjoyed having her children home again: "It was lovely. First of all, I’m a bit of a homebody anyway. I love my four walls. There’s things I can do for hours in my house and I’m very complacent, very happy."
