Michael Douglas' Kids Unaware of Catherine Zeta-Jones' Bipolar Struggle

Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones are shielding their two children from the actress' struggle with bipolar disorder because they have just come to terms with their father's recent cancer battle

The "Wall Street" legend Michael Douglas underwent intensive treatment last summer after being diagnosed with stage four throat cancer.

He beat the disease in January, but the Hollywood couple's personal lives took another hit in April when the "Chicago" beauty Catherine Zeta-Jones was found to suffer from bipolar II.

Doctors diagnosed the condition after Zeta-Jones checked into a mental health clinic to treat a severe bout of depression, brought on by the stress of her husband's battle.

The stars, who explained all about Douglas' cancer fight to Dylan, 10, and Carys, eight, have chosen not to burden their kids with their mother's issues so soon after their dad's illness, although Douglas worries they will find out through gossip at school.

Appearing on U.S. talk show "The View" on Monday, May 9, he says, "No, (they don't know) yet. We gotta give them a chance, they're just getting over the other issues."

"Of course the hardest part is not the kids at the school, it's the parents of the kids, you never know how much they're sharing (with their children)."
