Kathleen shares photos of her husband but does not reveal his name or what he does.
The pair exchanged Snapchat details and quickly became ‘best friends’ before their relationship turned romantic.
Kathleen explained her parents paid for their wedding but that after she married she became her husband’s financial responsibility.
‘In the gypsy and traveller community, the mum and dad pays for everything, like for your wedding,’ she explained, in response to a question from a follower.
‘And obviously when you are living together and married to the boy he pays for everything.’
The couple live together in a modest caravan that also features in Kathleen’s TikTok videos. In one she revealed how her impressive clothing collection takes up almost all of the available storage.

‘Every cupboard is literally all my clothes,’ she told fans, before pointing to two small cupboards by the ceiling and adding: ‘My husband’s is just them two.’
The teenager also opened up about how people discriminate against her for being a traveller and said that while she refers to herself as a ‘gypsy’ she prefers to be referred to as a ‘traveller’ by people outside the community.
‘The hardest thing about being a gypsy is no matter what you do, what you wear, literally anything, you will always get judged,’ she said.

‘You can be the quietest person in the world and not do anything to a person and you’d still get judged.
‘It is hard and when you go into some shops and you’ll see some people who are not gypsies, and they’ll whisper “oh there’s gypsies” or they will pull a face and walk away.’
Kathleen’s fans regularly post messages of support in the comments section and thank Kathleen for shedding a light on what it is like to be a traveller.
