Despite that, the couple still manage to make time for each other. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November, Matthew spoke about life in lockdown and admitted: "Sometimes you go through the day and you got the kids' remote schooling, you get everyone set up, you're doing meals and running around. I'm doing my work, she's doing hers, and sometimes it'll be at 9:30 at night or 10 o'clock when we actually look at each other and go, 'Oh, hi, how are you?'
