Donnie says, quote, “Jenny and I have hot chocolate together every night.  I know a cup of hot chocolate doesn’t sound glamorous but it’s those quiet moments with us as a family that are my favorite.

We should probably note that Donnie said this at an event hyping the Keurig 2.0, and he made sure to point out that they make their hot chocolate with that machine.

Still, the hot chocolate thing is nice.  If it really happens.
