In a recent interview heard by Classic 105 the stylish mother of one says her mother helped her a lot in bringing up her son after she moved out.
This is despite the fact that they had chased her out after finding out she was pregnant.

I started living in a bedsitter, but I would make sure I visit my son at my mum’s house, and on weekends, have him stay at my place,”
Her son always asked her why her house was small, and that motivated her to keep working hard.
“‘Why don’t I live with you?’ he’d say. I would cry every day and tell God to let this be my motivation,” she said.
Cate is now married to Philip Karanja for almost two years ,The two who started off as actors on ‘Mother-in-Law’ on Citizen TV, just cannot stay away from each other.
“He was my director in the show and really helped me package my career. I love him because he is an organised person with a lot of potential,” she said.
The worst trolls she gets are when she posts pictures with her husband
“It feels so bad, knowing that my life has been a journey, and some even involve my son,people also write ugly things about us”
