The couple, who have been married since 1998, have two children together: 11 year-old Presley and nine year-old Kaia…which makes it difficult to spend time away. Their solution? They often have to sneak away to their beachside guesthouse for some alone time.
Cindy says: “It’s not planned. Yeah, we have a little guesthouse down on the beach. It’s like a getaway without getting away…Sometimes we don’t bother with the candle light. Sometimes you just have to do it! You know, you’re in a time crunch. You don’t want the kids walking in, that happened to us not that long ago.”
Many parents know what a mood-killer it is to be “caught in the act” by their kids, but Cindy doesn’t get embarrassed. She says her kids are now old enough to understand that she and their father need quality alone time together.
“We had our door locked and we never lock our door lock and our daughter comes… She’s like, What are you doing in there?’ I said, You know what, Daddy and I are spending some time together,’ and then she was like, Oh God! I don’t want to hear that!…Now, she knows if the door is closed and locked, don’t [try to come in].”
Sounds like typical parents of tweens to me!
