Kathryn Dennis, the 21-year-old star of Southern Charm, gave birth to a healthy baby girl two weeks ago by her 50-year-old co-star Thomas Ravenel.
The reason we're talking about this? Not the age gap, but the fact that she was seen having a pregnancy scare on the show ... and it came up negative.
Reality TV at its finest, ladies and gentlemen!
In fact, the very day the pregnancy-scare episode aired on Bravo, Dennis gave birth, which will surely make for an interesting episode next season.
The hookup between Dennis and Ravenel was one of the big storylines on the reality show, yet pregnancy tests showed Kathryn was NOT pregnant.
Was this a lie engineered by the stars, or the producers?
Not exactly on either front. According to reports ...
After filming ended, Kathryn and Thomas began hooking up again, and Dennis got pregnant for real. They now live together in Palm Beach, Fla.
Ravenel, for what it's worth, is a former treasurer of South Carolina who resigned and did time after he was convicted in 2007 of cocaine distribution.
Congratulations on the new addition (we think)!!
