Southern Charm alum Thomas Ravenel has revealed that he is the proud father of three! According to The Daily Mail, Ravenel welcomed a son on June 29 with Heather Mascoe, a registered nurse who he briefly dated. He already shares two children – Kensie, 6, and Saint, 4 – with his ex-girlfriend Kathryn Dennis.
Mascoe also has two kids of her own – a son and a daughter aged 12 and 13 – from a previous relationship with Charleston, South Carolina restaurateur Leo Chiagkouris.

Ravenel dished in an interview that his new baby’s name is Jonathan Jackson Ravenel, and he was born via C-section. Baby Jonathan weighed in at 7 lbs, 4 oz. and he is 20.25 inches long.
The former Bravo star says that both he and Mascoe are “very happy,” and the registered nurse is a “phenomenal mom.” Ravenel noted that both mom and baby are doing well.
Even though Ravenel and Mascoe are no longer dating, he says that they are still “really good friends.” The former South Carolina treasurer has been helping out by making Target runs to pick up supplies.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ravenel says that he and Mascoe are being very careful about who they allow around their newborn. Mom and baby are staying in a rural area outside of Charleston, and Ravenel says that his son “loves the sound of the frogs.”
Ravenel did admit that it wasn’t easy explaining Jonathan’s birth to Kensie and Saint.
“It’s kind of difficult to explain to them, you know, ‘’This is your half-brother – different mothers, same father.’’ They were a little confused. In the end I just told them, ‘You’ll understand when you’re older!’’” said Ravenel. “But they’ve Face Timed with the baby and they’re very excited to meet him. They’re getting ready to spend the week with their mother so we’re hoping they’ll meet him after that.”
Ravenel also explained that Dennis found out about the new baby through his attorney. Earlier this year, the former couple finally reached a custody agreement over their kids after a lengthy court battle, and that’s when his lawyer dropped the bombshell.
Thomas Ravenel claims that he and Dennis are on good terms once again, but Southern Charm fans know that could change at any moment.
