The Dancing with the Stars co-host confessed in an interview with Redbook that despite having four children, the couple find it important to "escape" at least once a week to focus on their own relationship.
"When I was a new mum, I used to think that life was going to be balanced, and I strived for that," Burke explained. "I gave up on the expectation that everything was going to be picture perfect.
"So maybe on Sunday night, we'll go out to dinner at a favourite Malibu restaurant. Or at home, we get the candles, the music - the whole deal - and we close the bedroom door."
Burke and Charvet are parents to 4-year-old Rain and 2-year-old Shaya. Burke is also mother to 11-year-old Neriah and 9-year-old Sierra from her previous marriage to Garth Fisher.
Burke previously confessed that she sometimes struggles with the difficulties of raising a blended family.
She has also claimed that following a regular exercise routine helps keep her sex drive high.
