Kathryn Dennis has a new man in her life.

Amid her messy custody battle with ex Thomas Ravenel, the Southern Charm star recently revealed she’s dating aspiring country singer Hunter Price, sharing a photo of the couple on Instagram captioned with a simple black heart emoji.

Dennis also discussed the budding relationship in the comments section of the post.

In response to a fan who asked “Who’s this?” Dennis wrote, “My person.”

Price, 25, competed on season 13 of America’s Got Talent last year and was eliminated in the Judge Cuts round.

When a fan commented that Price’s single “Left Behind” is “up there” on her playlist, Dennis responded: “mine too ;)”

And the couple seems to have already developed their own inside jokes.

“#dippingsauce,” Price commented, to which Dennis responded: “chicken nugget.”

The relationship reveal comes as Dennis and Ravenel, 56, are battling for custody of their daughter Kensington, 4, and son Saint, 3. In October, Dennis filed documents in Charleston seeking to obtain primary custody of the two children, accusing her ex of relying “upon the use of full-time nannies,” as well as referencing the sexual assault allegations brought against him and his recent arrest, alleging he “has drunk alcohol to excess, mixed with prescription drugs, that has caused him to be impaired during periods of time in which he had custody of the children.”

Ravenel filed a counterclaim in November, vehemently denying all of Dennis’ allegations and alleging that Dennis’ attempt to seek primary custody was “for the sole and/or primary purpose” of securing her role on the show and “progressing her storyline as the ‘rehabilitated mother who regains possession of her minor children.’ ” (Dennis previously lost custody of the kids and entered rehab in 2016 after she failed a drug test. She has since earned back 50/50 custody.)

Since Dennis’ filing, the contentious exes have continued to fire back at one another via court documents. Ravenel has alleged that both of their children have “developmental and behavioral problems” as a result of Dennis, and Dennis accused Ravenel of using drugs, questioning whether he had ever been evaluated for a potential diagnosis of bipolar disorder or any other mental health issue.

Dennis seemingly alluded to the conflict with Ravenel on Monday, sharing an Instagram slideshow of photos of her and her Southern Charm costars.

“That’s the best revenge of all: happiness,” she wrote. “Nothing drives people crazier than seeing someone having a good f—ing life.”
