“I guess it could work out, I wonder if it will,” Kathryn stated earlier in the episode, considering her temporary living situation with Thomas as her home underwent renovations. “The thought has run through my head more than a few times.”
She went on, “He’s the father of my kids [Kensie, 6 and Saint Julien, 4], so that ‘You never know’ thing is always going to be in the back of my head.”
However, the idea was shut down after Kathryn received a text about her ex while at dinner with friends at Leva Bonaparte‘s home. Kathryn then pulled pal Danni Baird aside and told her about the news.
“Thomas got a girl pregnant and she’s having the baby. I just found out,” Kathryn told her. “It’s happening.”
When Danni asked how far along the mother-to-be was, Kathryn replied, “probably six, seven months,” causing Danni to be visibly taken aback.
Kathryn also revealed that she didn’t find out the information from Thomas herself, but it was her lawyer that confirmed it.
When Kathryn came back to the table with the girls, Madison LeCroy asked her what was up, considering Kathryn’s somber look.
“Thomas is having another baby,” Kathryn revealed, causing a look of shock from all the women around the table.
The mother-of-two shared her disappointment in Thomas’ callous, detached behavior about the subject, noting that when she brought up the fact her children would have a sibling, Thomas said, “Well half.”
Kathryn then went on to explain how she had recently become suspicious of the situation even though she never confirmed it. She shared that she had found a positive pregnancy test in his house and heard that he had been spotted at an OB-GYN “with a girl who was showing.”
“It’s not a normal thing,” she added, noting that Thomas doesn’t usually keep these kinds of things from her.
During a confessional interview, Kathryn went on to explain how betrayed she felt by the news.
“I cannot believe I’ve been living in the house with this man who has been hiding a secret that he has a child on the way,” she said. “Meanwhile I’m like, ‘Oh, maybe if we got back together, this is what it would be like.'”
She continued, “My family, a piece of it was taken away. It’s no longer the Ravenels,” she told the group. “I don’t know what the next step is.”
