Phil Karanja shared some exciting news with his fans this week. The news that his famous wife Kate Actress is heavily pregnant.
The man gushed about it on his social media page. I called him up and asked him a few questions regarding the good news. He was a bit cagey with what he could tell me as the couple had agreed not to give interviews to media but yours truly was able to get a few questions answered by the film producer and director.
Phil told me the reason they had revealed the pregnancy so late in the game, was that the couple had made a choice to keep some things to themselves.
He also told me that the couple didn’t already know the gender of the child as is the trend for some celebs like Diamond and Tanasha. He said he wanted to be surprised when the baby is born.
What was one of the most important qualities that he believed a man should have in a marriage? Phil believes that communication is key and said as much. ‘As a husband create an environment that your wife can come and speak to you freely. Make sure that after she has communicated her needs that you work on the issue.’ he said.
Abel Mutua recently enjoyed his close friend Phil about the time it took to get their first kid, even saying that he was ready to sub him if needed.
Was the long wait for a child a concern for the popular filmmaker? he said that he was chilled about the wait and was always confident that he would have a child soon.
Precious School Tragedy
Phil spoke about the Precious Talent School tragedy where 8 students died and many more were injured. He said that he was pissed about the incident,
‘It means that someone stole money (meant for quality construction of the school). It is sad that some people are willing to risk the lives of kids for their own personal gain. May those involved get dealt with.’
The man also revealed that the new show that he was working on would be called, ‘My Empress’ that would air on Maisha Magic. He explained that he was a dramedy series that follows a couple of women navigating work/life issues that face them.
