‘I will never restrict my son from meeting his biological dad’ Admits Celina

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.

‘My parents threw me out after finding out I was pregnant’ Celina recalls

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.”

“‘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.

The cute thing Phil Karanja did for Kate the Actress five years ago

Their love story keeps getting better and better as each one opens up.

Phil, during an interview on Kiss FM with Chito Ndlovu, revealed how he finally realized Kate was the one for him.

In a candid moment, the actor-cum-producer confessed how a meeting five years ago, led to their love story. He confessed to Chito saying,

‘I always tell people this if a woman meets a man they will be like ten seconds this guy can be husband material, but for a man you met her and know she will be my wife, and you just got to man up and do it. She knows if he is marriage material, but for a man we don’t second guess’.


So how did he ‘man up’? Phil said;

‘Surprisingly when we started working with each other we didn’t like each other that much, but as I got to know her and we got to talking I was like ..wait, there is something here and I started liking her and at some point I just looked at her and I was like yo..you’re going to be my wife. I’m going to marry you’.


He added coyingly;

‘This was like five years ago, yeah she was reminding me the other day. She’s like, do you know you told me you were going to marry me, before you started dating me?,
