“This is such a new and special experience, so I’m really being protective of what I share publicly, but with new episodes of Below Deck Galley Talk about to air on Bravo after Christmas and The Traitors premiering on Peacock on Jan. 12, 2023, there’s just no hiding my baby bump any longer!”, she gushed at the time.

Who Is The Father Of Kate Chastain’s Baby?

Soon after the blonde beauty confirmed she was expecting her first child many of her fans were quick to inquire about who the father of her child is. Despite their many guesses, Kate has kept the identity of the father under wraps. In fact, at BravoCon 2022 she confirmed that she was entering motherhood on her own, as reported by Bravo’s The Daily Dish. “I’m doing it solo and perhaps with some help,” Kate said at the time. “But I’m happy to do it alone.”

Kate Chastain & Ben Robinson Rumors

Despite the fact that Kate has not revealed the identity of her child’s father, it has not stopped her fans from guessing. When she shared the birth announcement photo at the time of Sullivan’s birth, many of her one million followers took to the comments to suggest that it was her former co-star Ben Robinson, 42. “Is it just me, or does baby look JUST like chef Ben?”, one admirer wrote, while another added, “There is no test result in this world that could convince me that isn’t Ben’s child.”

The famous chef is currently engaged to Kiara Cabral, which he announced days after Kate’s birth. The former co-stars were previously linked at the start of the series, however, Kate confirmed it was just a fling during a Sept. 2021 interview with US Weekly. Since the arrival of her bundle of joy, Kate has shutdown speculation that Ben is the father.

On Jul. 29, 2023, she even shared a side-by-side photo of Ben as baby next to Sullivan. “It would be great if people would stop commenting and messaging me ‘baby Ben!’…….every single day. For reference this is Ben as a baby on the left next to Sullivan. Clearly not related,” she clapped back via Twitter. Prior to that, on May 8, she shared a photo of her little one and seemingly shutdown Ben rumors once more. “For the record, the only thing this handsome guy has in common with any chef is the tendency to get emotional around meal times,” Kate joked in the caption.

Kate Chastain’s Relationship Status

The former chief stew may have had a brief spark with Ben and a romance with a woman named Ro Hernandez, per Screen Rant, but now her focus appears to be on her baby. Kate revealed her relationship status during BravoCon 2022, per The Daily Dish. “I’m single too, you guys,” she told the crowd at the time. At the time of this publication she has not revealed any new updates on her romantic life.
