Thomas Ravenel just shared a new photo of his newborn son, Jonathan Jackson Ravenel.
“Meet Jonathan Jackson Ravenel. One 5 weeks old,” Thomas captioned his August 6 post.
The former reality star dated the 38-year-old registered nurse last year, although the couple is no longer together. Heather gave birth to his third child on June 29. After that, Thomas clarified the nature of his relationship with Heather in an interview. He also discussed how his older children he shares with his ex, Kathryn Dennis, reacted to the news.
“It’s kind of difficult to explain to them, you know, ‘This is your half-brother – different mothers, same father.’ They were a little confused,” Thomas, 57, told the Daily Mail in a July 13 interview. “In the end I just told them, ‘You’ll understand when you’re older!’ But they’ve Face Timed with the baby and they’re very excited to meet him. They’re getting ready to spend the week with their mother so we’re hoping they’ll meet him after that.”
Even with the odd Ravenel sibling relationship dynamics, the children seemed to take on the newborn with open [cradling] arms, as Thomas shared in a few sweet photos of the introduction.
In terms of his relationship with Heather, Thomas also revealed in the Daily Mail interview that he and his ex have remained good friends, but they are no longer seeking a romantic relationship.
