Kevin is Gwyneth Paltrow’s assistant, but he is also her “confidante” and “rock”, as well as the focus of her Celebrity IOU project.
The HGTV show has seen several celebrities surprise their friends, such as when Kris Jenner gave her lifelong friend Lisa a home renovation.
Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott are there to help each celebrity achieve the desired renovation look, such as for actress Gwyneth Paltrow.
She surprised her assistant Kevin Keating on the July 12 episode. Here at Reality Titbit, we found out all about him, and explored their friendship.

Kevin Keating on Celebrity IOU
Gwyneth transforms Kevin’s new condo apartment, based in Southern California, ahead of his move-in day.
To say thank you for his support, she decided to update her best friend’s kitchen, living area and loft space.
The home started off being very outdated, with him unable to spend any money on extra renovations – which is where Gwyneth came in.
She sets out to help with the demolition of the kitchen, re-plastering the fireplace and installing the new iron staircase railing.
And that’s not all – the team also help to give Kevin a more spacious kitchen and a built-in dry bar!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Kevin Keating
Kevin has worked with Gwyneth for 11 years running.
During that time, they have became close friends, with Gwyneth spending more time with him than anyone else.
She now refers to him as her best friend, after he gave up a lot to travel with her while she lived in London.
Gwyneth is thought to set a record for Celebrity IOU when surprising Kevin, as the most tears shed than any other star on the HGTV show!
