Téa Leoni is looking forward to belting out holidays tunes with her extended family this Christmas, but says there’s one person who will not be encouraged to sing along: husband David Duchovny.
“I’m really excited honestly for this Christmas because all of us crazy Pantaleonis are getting together,” she told PEOPLE at the UNICEF Snowflake Ball Tuesday. (Leoni’s grandmother, Helenka Adamowska, founded the U.S. Fund for UNICEF.) “All together there’s something like 40 of us and there’s a lot of singing.”
“I have a lot of musical cousins,” she says. “David will not be singing. We just encourage David to clap along.”
