Michael Douglas hasn’t let his split with Catherine Zeta-Jones stop him making breakfast for his children.
The couple announced in August that they were taking some time apart after 13 years of marriage, but according to the Daily Mirror the actor is so determined to enjoy regular family time with their children Dylan, 13, and 10-year-old Carys that he heads over to Catherine’s most mornings to make pancakes for them.
“When he’s in New York, he makes the kids breakfast and comes back in the evening to watch TV with them before bedtime,” the source said. “It’s very sweet when he turns up at the apartment to cook for them because he so desperately wants to be back as part of the family’s life. Catherine thinks it’s really touching he’s being so hands-on with the kids – and he’s praying it’s the key back into her heart.”
But winning Zeta-Jones over again isn’t as easy as cooking a little batter. After spending time with the “”Chicago” actress, Douglas must reportedly go back to his pad. Though Douglas seems to be putting in the extra effort, Zeta-Jones might still want to officially end their marriage.
“Michael would give his right arm for a reconciliation, but Catherine’s warned she is not ready to commit and she’s still not ruled out divorce,” a source said.
Zeta-Jones is purportedly still sour over Douglas insinuating his throat cancer was caused from oral sex. “Catherine is making him suffer,” the source added. “She nursed him through those dark days when cancer almost took his life and she feels the comment about oral sex was like a kick in the teeth.”
