Kathryn Dennis made her relationship with Chleb Ravenell Instagram official amid custody battle with former partner Thomas Ravenel. While rumors of them dating have been around for months, this is the first time that the 'Southern Charm' star has confirmed their relationship status. 

The photo, captioned "YOU" with a heart emoji, drew thousands of comments, of which the most common ones pointed towards how Chleb's last name matched with Thomas'. Some even wondered if Kathryn's current and former lovers are related in some way. 

"Different spelling but interesting none the less!" a user commented on Kathryn's Instagram post, while another shared, "She’s gonna get that name one way or another!!"

"yes his last name is Ravenel but not related to Thomas! His brother is a clothing designer. They have been dating for quite some time now," a user cleared the air. "I live in Charleston, ravenel is a very common last name here," another pointed out. 

So, what else do we know about Chleb? He used to be the wide receiver for his football team, Broncos, at Western Michigan University and is currently a product specialist with Apple, People reported.

Even though Chleb and Kathryn have been dating for months now, they seemed to have progressed quite a bit. Chleb has met Kathryn's children, Kensie and Saint, a source told the publication. "They've been dating a few months now," the source informed and added: "They have good chemistry together."

Chleb is not the only person Kathryn saw after her split with Thomas. She was in a relationship with former 'America's Got Talent' singer Hunter Price but the couple split in August 2019 despite engagement rumors. She had flashed a photo of a diamond ring, which made people think that she was ready to take the leap with Price. 

“Kathryn is not engaged to anyone but herself. She and Hunter actually split about two weeks ago,” a source told People and added, “Their relationship ran its course. Kathryn is doing well, and staying focused on the kids.”
