Southern Charm - Kathryn Dennis & Thomas Ravenel Spend Christmas Together With Their Kids After Nasty Custody Battle
Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis and her ex Thomas Ravenel recently came to an agreement after a nasty year-long custody battle over their two children Kensie, 5, and Saint, 3. It appears now that the exes are in a successful co-parenting relationship, as they came together during the holidays to celebrate Christmas with their kids.
Dennis took to Instagram this week to document her family’s holiday activities on her Instagram Stories, and the pics she posted featured Kensie and Saint unwrapping their gifts, some sweet selfies, and Dennis showing off her Christmas tree earrings.
Ravenel appeared in a couple of the photos that featured the kids playing with their new toys, and in one of the videos Saint told his parents, “This is the best Christmas ever.”
The 28-year-old Dennis also posted her three attempts at getting one of those “perfect family photos,” with Kensie and Saint, but she didn’t have any success. She wrote in the caption that she has no idea how other families pull it off.
Dennis and Ravenel, 57, split in 2016. And, they started fighting over custody of their kids in October 2018 when she filed a petition for full custody after South Carolina police arrested Ravenel when two women came forward and accused him of sexual assault.
After months of accusing each other of alcohol and drug abuse, arguing over Bravo filming their kids and Dennis talking about the case on Southern Charm , and complaints about new boyfriends and girlfriends spending time with the little ones, Ravenel and Dennis finally reached a custody agreement in November.
The court granted the former couple joint custody, with Ravenel as primary custodian. Dennis must also have a nanny supervise her time with Kensie and Saint. She recently told Us Weekly that her co-parenting relationship with Ravenel is working well for both of them, and they are actually moving forward.
Kathryn Dennis admitted that it felt good to say that she and Thomas Ravenel were moving forward because it was the first time in a long time that she was able to say it.
New episodes of Southern Charm will return to Bravo in 2020.
