They form a beautiful blended family.
The Tahidi High actor-turned-director married Celina and he accepted her son who now calls him dad and together they form a beautiful blended family.
In an interview with SDE Karanja confessed that he had no problem adopting Leon who is Celina’s son and taking up parental responsibilities.
“I personally have never had an issue with adopting a child. Even when I was young, I would often say I will adopt children when I am older. I guess it boils down to one’s personality.” He revealed.
Phil has also developed a strong bond with Leon and they are a lot like brothers and he now calls him dad though Philip had to earn the title. “We are like brothers now. Our bond is so strong nowadays the mum gets jealous at times. Though I keep stressing that I am not his friend first, I am his father and teacher first.”
And for those men who want to get into the life of their spouse's child, Philip advised “Weigh very carefully if it’s a situation you are ready for because it’s a lifetime commitment. It’s a big responsibility and before you ruin an innocent child’s life, think long and hard if you are ready for it.”
