On March 7, 2022, Southern Charm star Kathryn Dennis had fans in a frenzy after posting a photo with her dog on Instagram. 

She was dressed in an all-pink outfit and holding a cookie to her dog’s mouth. “It’s time for Gucci’s medicine, A lil pink martini cookie,” she wrote in the caption. 

The picture seemed ordinary, but it was a small detail that caught the attention of her fans — a massive diamond on her fourth finger.

Fans began wondering if she might have gotten engaged. They also asked if it was with her boyfriend Chleb Ravenell. 

“Hey Mama did I miss something? What’s that big rock on your hand sweetie pie, and who’s your boyfriend?” someone wrote with a heart emoji. 

Another user wrote, “that’s what I was wondering!!! Cause it’s a solitaire & a band….like she’s already married.”

A third one chimed in, “Are you married I see an engagement ring and a wedding band. Is it Chleb?”

But before fans could get any more excited, she set the record straight in the comments of her post, writing “negative” regarding her relationship status.

In July, the couple celebrated their first dating anniversary. Dennis paid tribute to her boyfriend with a photo of them at a club. 

But after over one year of dating, Dennis and her boyfriend called it quits in November 2021. 

According to Us Weekly, an insider shared with the outlet that Dennis wanted to get married again and have more kids following her 2016 split from her ex. 

“She broke up with him and they are no longer living together. There is no bad ill-will between them,” said the source.
