Michael Douglas reportedly heads to his wife's home everyday to make pancakes for his children Dylan, 13, and Carys, ten.
The 69-year-old Douglas lives in a bachelor pad near the apartment he used to share with Catherine Zeta-Jones in New York.
“When he’s in New York, he makes the kids breakfast and comes back in the evening to watch TV with them before bedtime,” a source told UK newspaper The Mirror.
“Then he gets his marching orders from his wife and returns to sleep at his own place in Manhattan.”
The source goes on to explain that Douglas wants to keep a strong bond with his kids and be a part of their home life as much as possible.
“Michael is very bothered about spending regular downtime with Dylan and Carys rather than just seeing them for dinners and days out,” 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.”
“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,” the source revealed.
Zeta-Jones, 44, who is reportedly unwilling to reunite with her husband, has yet to file for divorce.
