“I am happy a custody agreement has been reached,” the South Carolina native told Radar.
“The kids are thriving and I’m pleased with it,” he said about his children, Kensie and Saint. Thomas told Radar he was hopeful approaching the holiday season.
“I’m looking forward to brighter new year,” he said.
Kensie and Saint’s proud dad shared several snaps of the kids on his Instagram page after winning primary physical custody of them against their mother.
Kathryn and Thomas’ legal wranglings played out off-camera, as the judge in their case ruled that the children were not allowed to appear on Bravo’s Southern Charm.
Since his split from his bad news girlfriend Ashley Jacobs, Thomas has been on his own and bragged about his parenting skills.
“Kids all ready for school,” Thomas captioned a photo of his daughter in pink and his son in a big blue coat. “And as unbelievable as it sounds I get them ready all by myself and I feel I’m getting good at it but I think it’s time Saint got some cuter clothes?.”
As Radar exclusively reported, Southern Charm filming was delayed until next year as the show’s producers tried to find fresh faces for new drama.
“Filming usually starts in the fall but nothing is happening until January,” the source confirmed about the show that currently stars Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose, Patricia Altschul, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Austen Kroll, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, Naomi Olindo and Eliza Limehouse.
“Without Thomas they need the drama to come back.”
Despite mom remaining on the show, the court ordered that Kensie and Saint were forbidden from watching Southern Charm until they were in their teens.
“The parties shall use their best efforts to not expose the minor children to age-inappropriate/violent conduct, language, TV, videos, movies, books, or materials of any kind. This restraint specifically prohibits either parent from granting the children permission to watch any episode or reunion show of Southern Charm. This restraint expires on each child's 13 birthday,” the documents said.

“Another day, another pose! Don’t worry, he’ll grow into that coat soon enough?,” Thomas wrote about Saint’s oversized jacket.
“Somebody’s a ham!” Thomas wrote about his daughter making silly faces for the camera.
“Kensie, unlike her dad, loves going to the dentist! She didn’t get that from me. Kathryn?!” Thomas wrote. Kathryn and Thomas do not follow each other on Instagram.
The children originally appeared on the show with their parents, but after Kathryn and Thomas split he refused to allow them to film.
No Sleep Overs
As Kathryn and Thomas dated other people, the court ordered they could not sleep over while the children were present. “The parties are restrained from having any person with whom they are romantically involved (excluding a spouse) stay overnight with them while the children are present,” the documents stated.
Kathryn and her children looked exactly alike as they smiled for the camera.
