Catherine met her current husband Peter Lopez at the house of Don Henly (from the eagles) when working on a enviormental project. Catherine says "I was actually engaged to somebody else and he was just a friend. Then I realised I couldn't marry the other fellow. My mother was so excited. To a Mexican mother, having a daughter interested in a Mexican lawyer, well, that was her dream. As soon as she saw him at a party, she would be like, 'Please, Peter, you're going through a divorce, sit with us.' And I said, 'Don't sit there because whoever my mother likes I hate.' Up to now we've had a nice relationship."
