Does Thomas Ravenel Want More Kids?
The #SouthernCharm dad says his new home is the perfect place to raise a family.
Co-parenting 2-year-old daughter Kensington and six-month-old son St. Julien with Kathryn C. Dennis hasn't been easy for Thomas Ravenel. But even so, does the Southern Charm star hope to have more kids in the future? "Yes, I love children," Thomas told The Daily Dish (clip above). "I'd love to have nothing more than a bunch of shnookums crawling around the floors all over the house, a house full of kids."
And he has just the place for his (hopefully) growing family to live. "I made the back guest house the kids' house because it's far more comfortable, it's safer, it was built just 20 years ago. And it's their house, but there's plenty of room for me to stay there and the nanny to stay there. We have a lot of fun. It's like a big fun house for them, whereas the front house is like an old museum relic, and it's dangerous with a staircase that goes up four floors. Everything's set up perfectly, except for the fact that there's no kids in there," he said in reference to not being able to see Kensie and St. Julien.
Thomas said one of his favorite things to do with his children is to take them to the park, but it also sounds like his guest house is a toddler's dream. "All the rooms, all the toys, the clothes, everything's set up for these kids," he said. "And when I have them, I turn the TV off and I engage them in projects. We go on field trips. I feed them real food: eggs in the morning, and in the evening, salmon and asparagus. No junk food. Nothing with corn syrup or SpaghettiOs. And the TV's off, and I'm engaging them, engaging their minds. They need that."
