“The engagement is over,” he revealed. “Our friendship is the best it’s ever been but we’re ending our engagement to focus on our children. After careful thought and prayer, Heather and I have decided to end our engagement. We will continue to be the best of friends and co-parents and have the greatest respect for one another as we embark upon this new chapter of our lives, individually.”
Ravenel dated Mascoe for two years before he asked her to marry her. “I’m getting engaged to marry Heather Mascoe,” he tweeted on October 14, 2020. “I’m a lucky man!” Since then, his Twitter bio read “engaged,” but he has since deleted that.
When one twitter user asked him if he was planning on getting a prenup, Ravenel confidently replied, “Not with this one. No need.” Another Bravo fan asked if they could expect the wedding to appear on “Southern Charm,” to which he adamantly responded, “Absolutely not. Lol.”
Ravenel & Mascoe Share a Baby Boy
The couple may no longer be romantically linked, but they will continue to co-parent their son. The former “Southern Charm” star introduced the world to his son on August 6, 2020 via Twitter. He attached a photo of the boy with the caption, “Meet Jonathan Jackson Ravenel. One 5 weeks old.” Ravenel has continued posting adorable photos on his Instagram, as seen above.
Before tweeting the photo of baby Jonathan, Ravenel told the Daily Mail that he and Mascoe welcomed their first child together on June 29, 2020. “We’ve named him Jonathan Jackson Ravenel and he was born by C-section on June 29, 7lbs 4oz and 20.25inches long,” he told the Daily Mail in July 2020. “We are both very happy. Heather is a phenomenal mom and they’re both doing well.”
At the time of the birth, the 59-year-old reality star and politician told the Daily Mail that he and Mascoe briefly dated, but they were not together, and just, “really good friends.” The two started dating again shortly after but have since called it quits.
