Katherine Ryan has opened up about the terrifying moment child protection officers came to visit her and her daughter Violet following a false claim about her.
The comedian has Violet, 12, from a previous relationship and welcomed her son Frederick earlier this year with her husband Bobby Koostra.
Opening up about an incident when Violet was four, Katherine recalled: ‘I’d made some bad choices for myself, there had been a few volatile men in my life.
‘But I was confident of one truth: Violet was impeccably looked after, protected and loved. We were closer than close.
The 38-year-old went on to say that the protection officers quickly realised that Violet was well looked-after and told Katherine that the call was likely made by someone ‘who wanted vindictively to hurt me’.
Katherine has previously opened up about her close relationship with her daughter, describing her as the ‘love of my life’.
Meanwhile, the comic tied the knot with her high school sweetheart Bobby in 2019 after they rekindled their romance.
Speaking to Metro.co.uk, she explained: ‘I think that the reason that I found Bobby is genuinely because I wasn’t looking for him and I was happy being alone, and then my life just drastically changed, changed, changed.
‘Marriage is exactly what I feared,’ she joked. ‘I was like, “I can’t work anymore. I can’t see my friends. I have to cover my face. I’m not allowed out of the house”.
‘Covid and marriage coinciding for someone hyper independent like me is not ideal, but we got through it. It’s fine!’
Meanwhile, Violet became a big sister earlier this year as the pair welcomed their son Frederick.
Opening up about the siblings’ sweet bond, she added: ‘I had a hard time when my daughter was born. I was 25 and I didn’t know what was going on, I questioned a lot of my life choices, I was really emotional and I really felt alone as my family was so far away.
‘And now I don’t know what it is about this little boy, he just eats and sleeps and he is so lovely. I think I appreciate it a lot more because I’m older and because I have a live in babysitter essentially, because Violet is 12.
‘She loves him and he’s so small. I don’t think many 12-year-olds see newborns – you don’t really see babies out in the wild until they’re like three months – and she loves him.’
