As RadarOnline previously reported, the 33-year-old actress broke off rehearsals for Broadway show Dead Accounts to visit her family in Ohio. She was welcomed by her beloved grandmother, who suffers from diabetes and dementia and despite her celebrity status, Katie was even subjected to some ribbing from her older siblings!
“It was a fleeting visit, but Katie knew the only place she wanted be during the holiday season was with her family in Toledo,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“Katie was desperate to see her grandmother Jackie, who she is very close to, and the rest of the family. And surrounding herself with her siblings, nephews and nieces seemed to make her very happy because she was smiling all day.
“This time, there were no security guards, and she got to spend more time with everybody.
“Katie’s elder siblings couldn’t help but notice the change and they teased her about it throughout the day,” the source divulged.
Katie was spotted leaving New York’s LaGuardia airport last Thursday morning, making the short trip to her parents’ home for her first post-divorce Thanksgiving. She returned to New York later that night to prepare for work the next day.
