Speaking about Cole and Dylan on the Back To The Best podcast, Kim said: “They defended me all the way through."

Kim then opened up about a specific time Dylan stood up for her: "I got pregnant when I was on the show and of course the show dealt with it by making fat jokes. And one of my favourite memories is Dylan had a line that was a fat joke and he just kept skipping over it. It was like in the middle of a chunk of dialogue. So he kept skipping this laugh line."

She added: "Finally we get in front of the studio audience and he skips it and the executive producer screams and is like 'CUT!' And it’s the director’s job to cut by the way so he goes 'CUT! Dylan say the line!' and he goes 'I would not disrespect any woman that way. Let alone this woman. You write something funny and I’ll say it.'"

She ended by saying: "That’s my little man! They’re both my little men."

The man that you are Dylan Sprouse!
