Getting into the spirit of the season, Katharine jumped on her husband’s white Yamaha piano and crossed her dancer’s legs.
The pair dressed in basic black, striking a stylish contrast to their colorful away ensemble, which included a fully illuminated Christmas tree.
Recently, Katharine candidly discussed her efforts to keep the spark alive with David, revealing that a touch of alcoholic lubrication is helping her on her side.
“I’m going to have a glass of wine — he’s not drinking — and we’re just talking,” she told Fox. “It’s our time together that we always make sure we have.”

She spilled: “There’s always something to talk about, whether it’s our family, our son – it’s our time, we just want to reconnect.”
However, she insisted there was “nothing extravagant about what we like to do”, sharing that she and David “love going to the movies or having dinner together”.
Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, David said he had no hesitation in welcoming a baby in his 60s with Katharine, his fifth wife.
The couple tied the knot in 2019 and last year welcomed their son Rennie, who celebrated his first birthday in February.

He told People that while becoming a father again at his age was “not something,” he anticipated it: “I haven’t regretted a single day of it.”
The legendary showbiz mogul said, “I loved every day. It’s the standard thing like, ‘Oh, well, you were so young when you had your kids and worked day and night, you never saw them.’
He confessed to the magazine that “there is some truth in that, unfortunately, for my [older] kids. I was just working a lot. Even though I work a lot now, I’ll cancel anything just to hang out with him. It’s just different.
During his five marriages, David welcomed six children – Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara, 41, Erin, 40 and Jordan, 36, and Rennie, one.

Katharine and David have drawn a lot of attention for their age gap, which is so big that she’s younger than four of her stepdaughters.
In his new interview with People, David acknowledged that he and his last wife were “an unconventional couple”, but in his defense he cited Celine Dion’s marriage to her late husband and manager René Angelil, who had more a quarter of a century his senior.
Celine met René in Canada when she was a 12-year-old aspiring singer and he was already 38. Soon after, he became her manager.
His devotion to nurturing his career would have led him to mortgage his house in order to be able to finance his 1981 debut album, The Voice of the Good God.

René and Céline officially started dating in 1987 – when she was just 19 and he was 45 – and in 1991 they got engaged.
David and Katharine met in 2006 when he mentored a group of contestants including her on American Idol.
The season that brought them together aired from January to May 2006, during which time Katharine turned 22 and David turned 56.

They “remained friends all these years,” Katharine said — although during that time each of them went through one marriage and one divorce each.
Defending his marriage to Katharine, David said: “With Celine and Rene Angelil, there was a big age difference, and after working with them for a long time, it became Celine and Rene.” It just looked and felt normal.
He confessed: “But it was, of course, a bit strange at first. But I think we’ve gotten over that hump now with five years of being together, and I hope people start to feel like they belong together because we feel like we do.

Long road to each other: They “remained friends all these years,” Katharine said – although during that time each of them went through a marriage and a divorce each.
Katharine replied defiantly, “Even if they don’t, we don’t care.” We love our story, how we met and where we are now. Sometimes we look at each other like, “It’s so wild that we’re together.” ‘
They were giving their interview to promote her new Christmas album, which Katharine joked she had “guilty” David for producing.
“I said something like, ‘This is really crazy, I’m married to the greatest producer, basically in our lifetime, and I only had you record a few songs.’ Then he said, ‘OK, well, why not ‘did we just do a Christmas album?’
All that sweet affection: Katharine defiantly argued that they ‘don’t care’ what other people think, adding: ‘We love our story, how we met and where we are now’
