“I’m leaving tonight. I’m gonna go spend the night with Kris and that’s hard for Sean,” Burke told Us Weekly on January 13. “He supports me, but, yeah — that is definitely hard. Kris knows that I’m with my kids a lot, you know, and that’s hard for her because she wants to be with me. It’s a new relationship, you know, but she also knows I have seven kids. I have a husband. She knew what she was getting into. There’s never been any lying or anything and so she understands that too.”
Burke continued, explaining to Us Weekly that it’s important for her to balance her time with each party equally. “I think, for me, the most important thing is when I’m with Sean, I’m with Sean,” Burke said. “When I’m with Kris, I’m with Kris. … [I] give them a hundred percent of me when I’m with them.”
In December, Burke revealed that she identifies as a lesbian, and is currently dating a woman named Kris. However, Burke is still married to her husband and plans to stay married for the foreseeable future.

And I think trying to keep some things private is a big part of that.”

While interviewing with GLAAD in December, Burke revealed that she identifies as a lesbian. “I like women. I’m gay,” Burke said during the interview. “I’m a member of the LGBTQ+ community.

Burke continued, explaining to GLAAD, “I’m just now starting to feel like I’m becoming the woman I’m supposed to be. This isn’t something that’s new… I’ve always known it, but it took me, personally, 42 years to be comfortable in my own skin to say that.”
During the interview, Burke also spoke a bit about her girlfriend, Kris. “I met someone that I was interested in pursuing a relationship with,” Burke explained to GLAAD. “This became something that I didn’t want to hide anymore and I didn’t want to keep secret anymore.”
