In 2014, they welcomed their first child, Kensington Calhoun, and shortly after, they broke up for the first time.

The pair dated for over a year before calling it quits for good in August 2018.
They did not reveal the reason for their split, but during their time together, the former politician was accused of sexual assault by “nanny Dawn” who cared for his two children with his ex-girlfriend.
Real estate agent Ashley Perkins also accused him, claiming he assaulted her mom. Ravenel and her mom had gone on their first date after meeting on Tinder in October 2015.
“I mean, if you’re dating someone and there are allegations [against them], you can imagine just that [takes a toll]. Then you add custody, and the children the show, and two people in a relationship just trying. It wasn’t meant to be,” said the nurse. She added it was the worst year of her life.
Thomas Ravenel and Heather Mascoe
After the break-up, Ravenel moved on with Heather Mascoe. They dated for two years before he asked her to marry him.
