Being a teenage mother is not easy but Catherine Kamau alias Kate actress or Celina took the role with grace, having been chased away from home.
In a past interview, she opened up on how she got pregnant much to the disappointment of her parents, who threw her out before taking her back and helping care for her son.
Kate, who is married to Phil Karanja, has been a single mother for a while before she finally wedded the love of her life in 2018.
Speaking on whether her son’s biological dad has reached out to him, she says
“He has not, when I went to Makerere University we were getting to know each other when the boy came. He tried to be in his life but he was not being consistent.
It reached a point where I decided to cut him out because he was not helping much, he became a dead beat father.”
Asked on whether her son inquires about his dad’s whereabouts, Kate says
“Yes he does but I tried to explain to him why we got into this situation: In as much as the father is not around he was born out of love.
The bond between him and my husband Phil did not come easy we took time to make sure that we would all fit and my husband has been amazing.
They have earned each others trust on my wedding day my son made Phil cry by telling him that ‘He had earned the tile dad’.
Since then he has been calling my husband Phil dad. He is very lucky to get a second chance of fatherly love like he has.
If he wants to met his dad it would be his choice not mine because I don’t have such restrictions.”
