When it comes to celebrating her husband, the award-winning actress always has a way with words. On Phil's last birthday, Kate described him as her the greatest man ever. Not only is he her business partner, soulmate and father to her children, according to Kate, Phil is her sanity.

Happy birthday baba K squared," she wrote.

Although Kate and Phil are madly in love with each other, it was never so in the beginning. Opening up in a previous interview with comedian MC Jessy about their relationship, Kate admitted to not liking Phil in the front due to his uptight nature.  

"At first, I never liked Phil I felt he was too uptight. He kept telling me that I needed to think about my life. He used to bore me so much. I felt afadhali Abel as he was not as uptight as Phil. When I rebranded myself I would go to him to ask for advice that is when we started becoming more than friends. But no one believed us when we started dating. When I introduced my son to Phil he was very anxious but he was determined. The relationship was very straining but that's in the past. It's when we were almost getting married is when he called Phil dad. He had earned it," she said.
