While it's unclear if she's travelled to the UK with her husband, Michael Douglas, we reckon the Welsh star has headed home to mark her 54th birthday, which is just around the corner. Set to turn 54 on Monday 25th September, Catherine's trip to Wales means that she can celebrate with her parents and close friends.

Back in January 2018, the Wednesday star spoke fondly of her home country, which she regularly visits. "Whenever I fly into Britain, especially when I go over the Severn Bridge, I always feel like I'm going home," she told Style of the City Magazine.

Asked what she misses most about Wales while living abroad, Catherine replied: "I miss the immediacy of seeing my family. All the things you take for granted when your family live up the street. Saying that, the distance has made the bond between my children and my family stronger."

While Catherine spends a lot of her time in New York, she also owns a property in Swansea with her husband, which makes visits a lot easier. The couple had the property built for £1million in 2004, with the hope that it would allow Catherine to visit her native country more often, while giving son Dylan and daughter Carys a "Welsh upbringing".

Catherine's parents Dai and Pat Jones also live at the house when Catherine and Michael are in the USA. Little details have been revealed about the home, but it is reported that there are four bedrooms inside, and based on aerial images of the building, it's clear that the house has three storeys, a grey exposed brick exterior, dormer windows, glass bannisters and a mammoth garage for their cars.

Having a home in Wales is very important to Catherine, especially as she's so close to her parents. "I'm always back in the UK but I don't go to London – I go straight to Wales to see family," the A-lister admitted to The Sydney Morning Herald in 2021 .

"I'm a very homebody kind of person. My friends call me Cath. I speak with my mam every day, sometimes three times a day."

She added: "It's essential for me to have the two sides of the world. I have friends who knew me before I became known internationally, people who have been with me the whole journey. It takes those people to keep you grounded."
