‘Southern Charm': Thomas & Kathryn Announce They Had A Baby Girl Together!
After a season full of fighting, you’d think that Thomas Ravenel, 51, and Kathryn Dennis, 22, would need couple’s therapy, but it turns out, they wanted a bouncing baby girl instead!
The finale aired last night on April 21 and depicted Thomas and Kathryn fighting over her alleged cheating scandal, but since the show was filmed so long ago, they couple apparently worked out their relationship woes that were documented on Bravo’s Southern Charm!
The pair stuck together, are living happily ever after and brought a new life into the world! Kensington Calhoun Ravenel was born on March 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida, and Thomas announced the big news on April 15.
“It’s really a blessing,” Thomas told Bravo of becoming a father. “It’s one of the greatest creations one could ever hope to be apart of. Kathryn’s family came down immediately [when the baby was born],” Thomas added. “And my parents are going to meet [our daughter] today for the first time. And they’re just thrilled!”
‘Southern Charm': Thomas Speaks Out On His Crazy Personal Life After Baby Announcement
We’re so glad that Thomas and Kathryn are living as a loving family with baby Kensington, but we can’t forget about his partying ways just yet!
Thomas spoke to South Carolina’s The State, opening up about his past legal woes, drugs and drama.
As spoken about on Southern Charm, Thomas is the former state treasurer of South Carolina, but was indicted on federal drug charges in 2007, which forced him to resign from office. He pled guilty to cocaine possession, and on the reality show, he has admitted that he doesn’t have a problem with cocaine, but he likes the smell of it!
“I’m not trying to say that wasn’t a stupid move…doing cocaine and sharing it,” Thomas admitted. “But, obviously, justice was not blind. I got a worse sentence than the drug dealer, how’s that work? He had a thousand customers. What happened to the other 999?…What I do in the privacy of my own home should be my own business.”
Now that he has a baby, we sure hope that what’s done in the privacy of his own home does not involve smelling cocaine, but like he said, that’s his business!
He continues, “The main thing that I want to stress is: It’s what you do in your public life that impacts other people. We all fight our own inner demons…We all get knocked down 1,000 times, but we get up 1,000 times, and I think that’s what important.”
And although he admits that his “personal life is a little crazy,” he sure has gotten up from his past troubles. WIth a baby on board, Thomas’s future looks bright and he might even get married! “We’ve been talking about it,” Thomas told Bravo. “Eventually I’d like to get married. All I can say is stay tuned.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think about Thomas and Kathryn’s baby? We’re you surprised by the news? Do you think that Thomas’s partying past is a concern? Let us know!
