How did Katherine meet her husband Andrew?
Katherine and husband Andrew Levitas have been married for six years after tying the knot in 2014.
Back in September, Katherine and Andrew celebrated their anniversary with the singer writing on her Instagram: “Six years ago today Neath and New York City came together at Hampton Court Palace (oh what I would do to have us all back in one room again!)
“Two children and two bunnies later, you are even more of a dreamboat than the one I married on that beautiful September evening.

“Thank you for being not only the best husband, father and friend but by far the best decision I ever made.
“You rock my world & I don’t know what I’d do without you. Happy Anniversary my love!”
Andrew, who is from New York, is a fine artist, who also teaches a course at the city’s University called The Artist’s Mind.
Katherine and Andrew first met through their shared hairdresser in LA, but initially kept their relationship private.
She said: “Everybody who knows us knows we are family people who wanted to have our own family lives.
“Those things are important to us. And we were looking for a real person.”
Katherine added in an interview with HELLO!: “Life is not always what you expect it to be and when you find somebody that you fall in love with, it’s amazing what you’re willing to change.
“If I’m talking to a girlfriend who’s just met someone and they’re not exactly how she’d thought, I remind her, ‘I thought I’d get married in my local church to somebody from home.
