Kym’s daughter Emily said she was "really proud" of her mother and Kym’s mother, Pauline, said:

It’s fantastic. I’m very proud.

Kym thanked her children as she accepted her award for pushing her through and spoke a few words to her mother saying:

If I can be half the mum you are then I’m really happy.

Kym’s husband is former EastEnders actor Jack Ryder, 26.
