Barbara Corcoran has kept her 35-year marriage to husband Bill Higgins fresh through unconventional methods.

While appearing on Thursday's edition of Today, the Shark Tank personality got candid about the secret to her longstanding relationship and shared how the couple sleep in "separate bedrooms" in order to keep things "fun."

“I’ve had a separate bedroom with Bill for like 40 years,” she explained. “I have to invite him in — he invites me in occasionally.”

While others may find their nighttime routine a little strange, the 75-year-old real estate mogul said that their arrangements add a bit of intrigue and "sexiness" now that they're able to adhere to their own sleeping patterns and cleanliness.

“He puts piles of stuff everywhere and I am very neat so I couldn’t sleep well at night. Now I sleep like a baby," Corcoran added.

This isn't the first time the businesswoman has given fans some insight on what's going on in her bedroom. In September 2023, Corcoran revealed she was bringing a little something extra to her marital bed when she shared a photo of herself sitting on a bed wearing a CPAP machine mask.

"Told Bill I had a surprise tonight. This isn’t what he was hoping for. 😂," she joked in an Instagram post, making light of her new medical device.

A CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine uses mild pressure to keep a person's airways open while they sleep, helping to treat obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and other breathing problems, according to Mayo Clinic.

Others praised the businesswoman for being real and bringing awareness to the common use of CPAP devices. "Thanks for sharing — making medical equipment 'normal' rather than shameful," one commenter said.

Another wrote, "Thank you for making this post! Think many associate sleep apnea with obesity. You are a perfect example of a normal, healthy person who also suffers from sleep apnea."
