In an earlier interview, the mother of two said that while starting off, she was motivated by her son to work harder.

Cate said she would cry daily when her son asked why he couldn’t live with her.

The son lived with Kate’s mother when the actress was still hustling and living in a bedsitter in Nairobi.

“My son would call me and ask me if I had gotten a big house so I could stay with him,” Cate said

“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,” she added.

Kate Actress further added that her son always asked her why her house was small, which motivated her to work even harder.

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 has been endorsed by different brands in the country.

Philip Karanja Reveals He Was Warned About Kate That He’s Taking A Big Risk

They tied the knot last year in a colourful wedding ceremony, but Kate and Phil didn’t want it to look like a celebrity wedding, hence inviting only close friends and family.

The public didn’t even know they had tied the knot, only to see photos of the wedding going viral on social media.

But before they finally became husband and wife, Phil had to first approach this beautiful lady, hoping she’d be interested in him.

Phil and Kate actually met while working together but “I did not really notice her in the way that I do now, even though we spent a lot of time together on set,” he told True Love magazine.

It was in 2012 that Phil started noticing Kate and by 2013, he was sure that he wanted to be with her.

It was actually on the same day that Uhuru Kenyatta was sworn in for his first term as president, then I approached her. I told her that I was making it official, I wanted to take a risk with her,” he told the magazine.

Kate went ahead to reveal that Phil had once told him that “many people were warning him about me but that he was still going ahead and taking a very big risk with me.”
