Kathryn Dennis has a new boyfriend. Amid her nasty custody war with Thomas Ravenel, the Southern Charm star just went official with her new man, Hunter Price, on social media.
Dennis shared an adorable photo of her and Price on Instagram, and her co-stars quickly got in on the fun in the comments section. “[heart emoji] @hunterpricemusic,” Dennis wrote alongside the pic, which was shot somewhere in Charleston.
When Naomie Olindo noted that the photo made them “insta offish,” Dennis all but confirmed that their romance is for real.
Price shared the same photo on his Instagram account. In response, Dennis called the singer her “lil chicken nugget,” and he hit back by saying she was his “HoneyMustard.”
Despite the back-and-forth, Southern Charms fans were not convinced that Dennis and Price are actually dating. After all, Dennis has said similar things about close friends in the past. But this time, Dennis confirmed that Price is the only man in her life.
Fans may recognize Price for his appearance on America’s Got Talent last year. According to Reality Blurb, the singer calls Nashville his home, which is probably why Dennis has been making a lot of trips to Tennessee the past few months.

There has also been speculation that the Instagram photo was taken while the cast of Southern Charm celebrated the Season 6 finale in Charleston. If that is the case, then it is possible that Price has a quick cameo on the upcoming season, though nothing official has been confirmed.
The boyfriend news, meanwhile, comes amid Dennis’ bitter custody battle with Ravenel, who was fired from the show last season after he was accused of sexually assaulting his children’s former nanny. Kathryn Dennis is currently seeking primary custody of their two children: Kensington and Saint Julien.
Filming for Season 6 of Southern Charm is underway, and the series is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime this year.
