Southern Charm stars Thomas Ravenel and Kathryn Dennis got together on Father’s Day weekend to enjoy a day at the beach with their two kids, Kensie, 4, and Saint, 2, and their Instagram pics are proving that the former couple is doing well when it comes to co-parenting. After battling for custody in court, do the happy pics prove that Ravenel and Dennis have reconciled?
Ravenel shared a pic of himself with Saint on his lap as he plays in the sand with a pail and shovel. The 55-year-old captioned the photo, “Saint and I at the Sullivans Island today.”
And Dennis posed with Kensie at the Sullivans Island location and added the caption, “You are my ☀.” She also shared a pic of Saint and added, “My cutie.”
According to People Magazine, after dating for a few years, Ravenel and Dennis ended their relationship in 2016. A contentious custody battle followed, with the court ultimately awarding custody and $100 a month in child support to Ravenel after Dennis failed a drug test.
But recently, the former couple has been focusing on putting their kids first and appear to be spending a lot of time together. They threw a party to celebrate Saint’s second birthday, and they attended Kenzie’s dance recital. Earlier this month, they also had a family dance party and shared a video of the four of them grooving to Britney Spears’ 1998 hit …Baby One More Time.
Ravenel is currently dating Ashley Jacobs, and in recent episodes of Southern Charm, she has clashed with Dennis. The two fought over whether or not Jacobs would attend Saint’s birthday party, and ultimately Ravenel and Dennis left her off of the guest list.
Jacobs said she was hoping for the chance to go to the party and prove to Dennis that she wasn’t a threat. And after reading a text from Dennis to Ravenel telling him to keep Jacobs away from their kids, she said she was hurt.
Ravenel is obviously getting sick of the drama and says that Dennis and the kids will always be in his life. So, he needs to be with someone who understands that and is not jealous, critical, or paranoid about it.
Since losing custody of her kids, Dennis went to rehab and has passed all of her drug tests. She has also been spending more time with Kensie and Saint.
“I think she has really stepped up as a mom,” said Ravenel. “It’s been amazing watching that transformation and I’m proud of her.”
Dennis says she is happy that she and Ravenel are at a good point in their co-parenting relationship. And, he seems to have a new sense of respect for her.
New episodes of Southern Charm air Thursday nights on Bravo.
