'I'm lucky you even looked my way once' - Xposé's Cassie Stokes shares gushing birthday post to girlfriend Kathleen
TV3 star Cassie Stokes has paid gushing tribute to her girlfriend Kathleen Sylvie Marie, who moved from Canada earlier this year to be with her.
The Xposé host (29) first met her other half while living in Toronto and enjoyed a three and a half year romance, but the pair parted ways and Cassie returned home to Ireland for the presenting gig.
But it looks like absence really does make the heart grow fonder as they reconciled last year and have been inseparable since. And Cassie gushed over her long-term love as they celebrated her 30th birthday on Monday night.
"Happy birthday to this one, I'm lucky you even looked my way once and thankful you continue to. Here's to many more laughs and smiles and 30th birthdays... I mean 25th birthdays," she wrote on Instagram alongside a loved-up picture of them enjoying the Dublin sunshine.
"She brought her dog and everything, so I’ve got the family back," the broadcaster told Independent.ie back in March.
"I’m absolutely thrilled. I’m very lucky that she’s over here and she’s brilliant. Everyone will meet her and be like, 'Why are you with Cassie?'"
"I’ve got one more Canadian over, and she’s fallen in love with Dublin and she’s more than happy to be here, well until her visa runs out!"
The pair are planning on celebrating Pride in Toronto, where they first met, this month.
Meanwhile, Cassie has been busy juggling her Xposé hosting duties after the departure of Ruth O'Neill after just one year.
