Kate loves teasing her followers with her witty and wild photos and videos which often feature her beloved cats.

Kate knows how to make a style statement 

She gets her sense of humor from both her actress mom, Judy Loe, and her late father, Richard Beckinsale.

He was a comedy actor famous for his much-loved role in the British show Porridge.

Kate's dad sadly died of a heart attack when he was just 31 years old and she was five. 

The actress previously said she takes comfort in watching her dad's old shows on TV so that she can feel close to him.
