Who Is Kate Abdo Father Tom Giles? Mother And Family Tree

Born on 8 September 1981, Kate Abdo was welcomed by her father, Tom Giles and her mother, whose name has not been made public.

Kate Abdo’s father’s name is Tom Giles. Tom Giles is a huge fan of Machester United football club. The sports broadcaster’s dad made a special guest appearance on television.

The former professional footballer Peter Schmeichel interviewed Tom Giles live at Etihad Stadium earlier this year. The broadcaster was surprised to see her dad giving a live interview. Moreover, Kate has a brother who is also a Machester fan.

It has been reported that the sports broadcaster has Guyanese descent via her maternal grandmother.

There is not much information about Kate’s mother. Mrs. Giles must also be a big sports fan. However, some online sites suggest that Kate’s mother is a Liverpool fan, unlike Kate, her father and her brother.

Despite the claim, no reliable sources are reporting about it. Thus, we could not find solid evidence to support the claim.

Regardless, the sports broadcaster must share a solid bond with her parents and siblings. As the daughter of an avid football fan, she must have inherited the love for the sport from her parents.

It is to be noted that Kate Abdo was born Kate Giles. She changed her last name after marrying a German businessman, Ramtin Abdo. Her father’s name is Tom Giles, not Tom Abdo – as reported by various sites.
