Katherine Ryan admits daughter ‘kicked off’ during civil ceremony to Bobby Kootstra

Katherine Ryan has discussed her daughter’s emotional reaction to her going through with her civil ceremony to Bobby Kootstra as she made her Loose Women debut on Wednesday 13 July.

The 39 year old comedian appeared on the ITV show to discuss her new Amazon Prime series Backstage with Katherine Ryan, when she spoke about her eldest daughter Violet, 13, who she has from a previous relationship, adjusting to family life.

Childhood sweethearts Katherine and Bobby underwent a civil partnership in 2019 and share baby son Frederick, whom they welcomed in June 2021.

The pair first dated aged 15 before splitting up, after which time Katherine welcomed daughter Violet, and they reunited years later.

The Canadian star spoke about Violet’s relationship with Bobby on the show, as she said: “She really kicked off at the civil ceremony, but now she loves him and she looks like him, it’s really strange. But he’s been a wonderful addition to our family.”

Katherine looked pretty in pink appearing on Loose Women, as she wore a long-sleeved printed shirt dress with matching rosy pink make-up and had her blonde hair styled in a flicked-out bob.

The comedian continued to praise her other half as she discussed their unique love story.

“We’re from the same round in the same town. I already know his family, I know what his mother is like,” she said.

Katherine continued: “We met on the ancestry show Who Do You Think You Are — you don’t expect to pull on a trip like that.

“I really have always loved him, I haven’t really liked any boyfriends since, this is the truth. And now I really love him.”

Speaking further about her successful relationship, Katherine shared the advice she often gives her fans who ask for help with their own love lives, as she said: “The key is not to rush these things.”

The star’s TV appearance comes a month after she celebrated daughter Violet’s 13th birthday.

Katherine gave fans a glimpse of the teenager’s lavish purple-themed party held in celebration as she posted several snaps on Instagram Stories.

The mum-of-two went all out for daughter Violet’s birthday bash, which saw stunning decorations of huge silver balloon displays, a DJ , and a giant, impressive cake.

The birthday girl wore purple to match her theme as she was pictured posing in a crop top and full tulle skirt, before she headed off to enjoy the party with friends.
