Katherine Ryan And Her Daughter Caught Man Masturbating In Car Park

Katherine Ryan And Her Daughter Caught Man Masturbating In Car Park

She tried to convince daughter Violet that the man had just been 'crying'

Katherine Ryan has revealed that she and her daughter accidentally caught a man masturbating in a car park, prompting a pretty awkward conversation about what was going on.

Katherine, 37, explained in an Instagram Story that she'd taken daughter Violet out for a picnic, saying: "Took my daughter for an enchanting parking lot picnic.

"The man in the car next to us was jerking off."

She then posted a series of videos in which she was having a conversation with Violet about what they'd just seen, trying to convince her daughter that the stranger had merely been having a little sob.

"He was just crying, Violet," Katherine says, glancing out of the window nonchalantly.

But Violet - who is Katherine's daughter from a previous relationship - is having none of it, replying: "No he was not."

Katherine continues: "Yeah, he had his head far back."

She leans back in her seat to mimic the stranger, pretending to cry.

"No," Violet protests. "Why was his hand in the under zone then? In the underworld?"

Katherine tries to assure her daughter that he was merely 'upset', adding: "Because he's sad about lockdown and he came to the parking lot to cry, and he was reaching for... Maybe a poem?"

Laughing, Violet says: "Then why was he ripping up the poem!?"

At this point Ryan also starts cracking up, unable to keep up the charade.

"He couldn't get it!" she says.

Katherine - who was born in Canada but now lives in the UK - often speaks about motherhood in her stand-up.

She also recently starred in The Duchess, a Netflix comedy series that was based on her life 'as a fabulous single mom living in London'.

"Season 1 follows Katherine as she debates if she should have a second child with her estranged and troubled baby daddy," a synopsis for series one says.

"It is meant to be a Catastrophe-like single-cam comedy set in London."

Speaking to Stylist earlier this year about the series, Katherine said she wanted single mothers to be seen in a positive light.

She said: "It was really important to show that single motherhood was nothing to be ashamed of.

"When I was raising my daughter, it certainly wasn't an aspect of my life that I disparaged or made me less attractive or less valuable. It's something that is actually a lot easier, in many ways, than having a man around."
