Mezzo-soprano singer Katherine also touched on her childhood and shared that she speaks to her late father Selwyn, who passed away from lung cancer when she was just 15, in her ‘vivid dreams’.

In June last year, the doting mother returned to work to perform Never Enough from The Greatest Showman at Classic Brit Awards at the Royal Albert Hall, just a month after giving birth to her second child.   

On bouncing back to work, the songstress, who also shares daughter Aaliyah, three, with husband of four years Andrew, explained: ‘I did a smaller small when he was 5 weeks and a bigger one when he was 7 weeks. 

‘The thing is its so hard, in classical music we book so far in advance so we actually book things 18 months ahead.

‘Obviously you cant plan when you are going to get pregnant so I had to cancel quite a lot of international stuff in the time that I was not able to fly when I had him.

Elsewhere in the discussion with host Giovanna, 34, Katherine candidly detailed her everlasting bond with her late father Selwyn, who was 55 when she was born and passed away in 1995.

The factory worker chose to look after Katherine and her sisters while his career-minded wife, Susan, did screening for breast cancer.

‘I do feel him with me a lot’, she shared. ‘Since he passed, I know some people believe in things like this and some people don’t but I’ve had quite vivid dreams about him.

‘We have talked and because I don’t know him as an adult I don’t know in my adult self him but we have conversations which is so interesting and I am always so fascinated by it.

‘I think this was if not the most exciting and thrilling final that I was ever a part of, then it was definitely the top two or three in my career,’ Djokovic said.

‘I was up against one of the greatest players of all time, Roger, who I respect a lot. Unfortunately, in this kind of matches, one of the players has to lose.’ 

“It’s quite unreal, to be honest, to be two match points down and to come back. It’s a bit strange to play a tie-break at 12-all as well. I was actually hoping I can get to the tie-break,” the champion said.

Federer said in his post-match comments that he was disappointed but will regroup and move on from the loss, looking at his wife and their four children who joined her at the conclusion.

‘I will try to forget. It was a great match,’ Federer said. ‘It was long, it had everything. I had my chances, so did he. I thought we played great tennis. In a way I’m happy, very happy with my performance. But Novak was great. Congratulations, that was crazy. …

‘I hope I give some other people a chance to believe at 37 it’s not over yet. I feel great. It’s going to take some time to recover physically, too. I couldn’t give more. I gave it all I had and I can still stand so I feel good and I wish the same for the other 37-year-olds. … Back to dad and husband. It’s all good.’ 

The victory gives Djokovic his 16th Grand Slam title while Federer remains on 20, the most in the Open Era by a male player.
