Kathryn's Messy Custody Battle May Have Contributed to Her Split With Chleb
The Season 7 finale of Southern Charm hinted that Kathryn Dennis might be pregnant with her third child. The 30-year-old was filmed taking a pregnancy test and looking nervous as she waited for the results to populate on the device. As the ultimate cliff-hanger, viewers were not privy to whether or not the pregnancy test showed whether or not Kathryn is expecting a baby.
So, is Kathryn from 'Southern Charm' pregnant again?
Kathryn already has two children with her ex, Thomas Ravenel, so fans were desperate to know if she was expecting a child with her then-boyfriend Chleb Ravenell. Fans initially thought Kathryn looked anything but pregnant, but social media can be deceiving, and most women really don't start showing until they're three or four months pregnant.
Kathryn does have a reputation for surprising fans with her pregnancies. Back in Season 1, viewers were shocked when they found out she was pregnant after Thomas had broken up with her. Kathryn ended up having a baby girl (Kensie), and she and Thomas tried to make things work. But they broke up again...and lo and behold, Kathryn found out she was pregnant a second time, this time with a boy, their son St. Julien.
Thankfully, as of January 2021, Page Six helped Kathryn put the rumors to bed once and for all — she's not pregnant! However, things in her and Chleb's relationship did become more serious following the pregnancy rumors. Kathryn gushed about her beau during the Season 8 premiere of Southern Charm on June 23 when the pair quietly moved in together.
Sadly, their romance on the show was short-lived, and on July 7, the pair broke up seemingly before viewers' eyes. "I feel like you’re emotionally unavailable, and you know I’ve been in relationships with emotionally unavailable people,” Kathryn told Chleb, adding, “I haven’t seen you taking the steps to fulfill the role that I would like someone to fill.”
Caleb responded, "It’s hard to fill that role, because I didn’t know what I was getting into before dating you."
In an interview with E! News shortly after the breakup, Chleb revealed that their relationship became strained when filming for Southern Charm began in November 2021, swiftly after the pair officially became a couple. Additional stress was caused by Kathryn's ongoing custody battle with fellow Southern Charm cast member Thomas.
"Just to see her go through that was painful," Chleb told E! News, explaining that as a solution, he tried to alleviate the pain. "I just wanted to make her happy, but with her dealing with all this, she kind of didn't realize what I was actually trying to do. She had too much going on in her mind."
