She responded: "All 4 of my children are dual nationals. 3 were born in the US. The oldest was born in Tokyo and then naturalized."
The family has been quarantining in Washington D.C. together during the coronavirus pandemic, bar one of the children.
How long have they been married?
The couple has been married since 1989 when Katty was 24 years old.
She chose to keep her maiden name which is a decision she's written about on social media.
On a LinkedIn post, Katty wrote: "I feel I should point out that this is no reflection of my marriage. I love my husband. I love his name, on him.
"Though I don’t think a man would ever feel they had to justify not changing their name to their wife’s name, as if it was some kind of indication that they didn’t love their spouse.
"When I first got married at the age of 24 someone suggested I should take my husband’s name because of tradition. I have always been suspicion of this argument when it comes to women’s rights."
They've been married for 31 years.
Where does Katty Kay work?
Katty was formerly a BBC news anchor and correspondent.
