— -- Almost a year after Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas announced they were separating, their relationship has come full circle.

The couple is back together, "very close and everything is going great," Douglas told CBS' Gayle King in May.

This comes as no surprise to Douglas, who said all along that the two were just taking a break to think about things and reset.

Now it seems as though Douglas and Jones' kids -- son Dylan, 13, and daughter Carys, 11 -- were told everything about the situation from the beginning.

Douglas spoke to People magazine and revealed "I'm more and more prone to tell kids just about everything."

"There's been a whole school of thought about things you should not tell children –- if there's a problem in a relationship, [people say], 'Let's not let the kids know.' Kids know," he said. "They know everything. I would err on the side of pretty much sharing everything. They can digest it, you know? It's life."

After months apart and now reunited, Douglas is not taking his wife of almost 14 years for granted.

"Like a lovely orchid, or anything else that's nurtured, marriage prospers and grows, but if it's ignored, it withers," he added.
