The 29-year-old got candid about her fiancé’s ex during the launch of her podcast “The Dog That Changed Me,” sponsored by Pedigree, on Tuesday, May 14. “[Anna] has an incredibly successful podcast,” she told Us Weekly. I really admire all the work that she’s done, and she’s definitely an expert at it.”
Anna, 42, has had her podcast, “Unqualified,” since November 2015, and it’s been pretty successful, so it’s not a surprise the author thinks so highly of it. “Learning from her is another huge gift,” she told the outlet. “I have such great people in my life that I’m able to learn from in all different areas of life and, and she’s definitely somebody that I look up to in the podcast world.”
Katherine also thanks her mom, Maria Shiver, for inspiration when it comes to the nine-episode podcast, which focuses on dog adoption and why it’s the best option. “My mom always offers me a huge amount of advice with everything that I do,” she added. “My mom also has a podcast, so I definitely learned from her.”
Katherine and Chris got engaged in mid-January and after they announced the news on Instagram, Anna was quick to send the pair her best wishes. “I’m so happy for you both! Congratulations!” she commented on their post.
Not too long after, she revealed how she found out about their engagement. “Chris texted me this morning and he was like, you know, ‘I proposed to Katherine last night,'” she said on her podcast. “I was like ‘Ah! That’s amazing.'” What she said next makes her ex of the year. “And I texted him back, ‘Just want to remind you, I’m an ordained minister,'” she added.
All former couples can learn a thing or two from Anna and Chris!
