Catherine continued: "It's all so exciting to me… I was working when I was my son's age. I was in the theatre, and I look at him, and I go, 'Wow, I was working when I was your age.' So I'm just enjoying this time, learning a whole bunch of stuff that I didn't know."

Michael, meanwhile, previously admitted there are aspects of having teenagers in the house that he is struggling to come to terms with.

Speaking to ET in 2019, the actor revealed that daughter Carys was entering the dating world. "She's looking for a boyfriend, but she's in this vernacular where everyone is a 'friend'.

"I go, 'What do you mean you're friends?'" he added, later explaining that the ambiguous terminology also applied to his son, Dylan's, social life.

"They start like, 'Can I invite so and so over for a sleepover, a bunch of us?' Yeah yeah! …He invites girls and I was like, 'Wait, wait, wait, what's going on?' and he says, 'Oh no, dad, they are friends. Come on, we're friends.'"
