COUPLE WELCOME BABY GIRL …
Former S.C. State Treasurer and current Bravo TV reality star Thomas Ravenel is the father of a three-week old baby girl with his girlfriend, Kathryn Calhoun Dennis.
According to Bravo’s Dish, the happy couple welcomed Kensington Calhoun Ravenel on March 24 in West Palm Beach, Florida.
“It’s really a blessing,” Ravenel told Dish exclusively. “It’s one of the greatest creations one could ever hope to be apart of!”
Ravenel and Dennis are both stars of Southern Charm, a Charleston, S.C.-based reality television show in its first season on Bravo. In fact the intricacies of their relationship has become one of the dominant story lines of the show – which will air its first season finale on April 21 at 10:00 p.m. EDT.
“She has tremendous motherly instincts,” Ravenel says of Dennis. “She’s been constantly reading books about babies and doing her homework. She is all over her new responsibilities. She has the energy and the mindset to make sure the baby is well taken care of. I’ve really grown to respect and admire her.”
FITS has obtained a pair of exclusive pictures of Kensington, who we’re told is nicknamed “Belle” Ravenel.

“They do make a pretty baby,” one source told FITS.
Ravenel has indicated he will run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by liberal Lindsey Graham in the event the incumbent wins the GOP primary election in June. Graham – who has an $8 million special interest-fed war chest – is facing a crowded field of challengers for the GOP nomination.
