Since his entry back into civilian life, after holding statewide office, Ravenel has reportedly been taping Southern Charm, a reality television show produced for the BRAVO Network. According to one of our sources, it was while taping the show that Ravenel became closely acquainted with the mother of his soon-to-be child, South Carolina socialite Kathryn Dennis.
Dennis, a fashion model in her early twenties, comes from a lineage of distinct political pedigree. She is a direct descendant of John. C. Calhoun, one of the most prominent political figures South Carolina has ever produced.
As recently as this month, Dennis took to Twitter in what appears to be a reference to Ravenel saying she was, "grilling burgers with my baby." Earlier in the day Dennis dropped a direct hint to Ravenel that she wanted a puppy. From all accounts the two seem to get along well. No public nuptial arrangements have been set.
