The couple has three children together, and their youngest daughter Bronte Carmichael is also an actress.
But Triston is not her first love. Before Tristan, Katy dated actor and friend David Walliams. They met each other when Katy was still a student at the university. The couple dated for five years. Recently Walliams opened up about Katy in an interview. He commented that she was her first love and a very important person in his life. The break-up affected the actor, and he was not over Katy for years after their split. Even though Katy started dating her husband Tristan only after parting ways with Walliams, the actor believes that Katy cheated on him with Tristan. This was hard to accept for him and left him emotionally disturbed for quite some time. But according to Katy, marrying Tristan was the right decision, and she is happy with her choice.
