Just days before their separation, Burke appeared on The Kelly Clarkson Show and said: “I love animals, but he has reptiles.” She said their marriage was a success because “opposites attract.”
She said of Matthew, “He has 45 to 50 reptiles that live beneath us. No snakes: That was the deal, no snakes. But when we dated a little over a decade ago, I knew I would be marrying a guy who loves reptiles.”

After they were married, Burke told Us in 2020 that she had, “a sense of ease and peace” with Matthew. Matthew acknowledged that the newlyweds were quarantining together and little tussles were bound to happen: “A lot of this I’ve actually learned from Cheryl. It’s just the constant communication. When you stop that communication and when you don’t try every day is when things start to slowly fall apart.”
Cheryl added, “I don’t know if being pregnant right now would be ideal for me,” but she admitted that she always wanted to be a mom.
