Catherine said they initially wanted to keep the pregnancy a secret but she changed her mind in a bid to encourage hopeful mums, rainbow mums and career women who are trying to decide between their family and goals.

“The cat or rather the baby is out of the bag ?! We are over the moon. We really wanted to keep this to ourselves but then again I remembered the many women on my timeline, hopeful moms to be, rainbow mums, career women trying to decide between family and your goals. I feel you, this is for you, Gods time is the best!”.


In a subsequent post, Catherine gushed over Phil Karanja describing him as a pillar of support. She also thanked him for being patient and for being there for her and her 13-year-old son Leon from a previous relationship.

The couple have starred in a number of local productions that have run on Maisha Magic, among them award winning Sue and Johnny. They also own a production company called Phil-It Productions.
