Kate Chastain and Ben Robinson
Kate and Ben have faced dating rumors for years. They briefly dated on Below Deck and slept together, but she is now single and simply has a close friendship with Ben, who has supported her during motherhood.
The Bravo co-stars have been on Galley Talk together, sparking rumors that Ben is the father. However, Kate nor Ben has ever confirmed the speculation despite fans being convinced he got her pregnant.
Now that Kate’s baby boy has been born, many think he looks just like Ben. One fan wrote, “Come on, be honest. You two have an amazing friendship, what is so wrong with a friend helping another friend out? And he looks like BEN!”
Ben and Kate’s baby have one thing in common
Kate recently hit back at Below Deck fans who are convinced Ben is the father of her baby. But she noted on Twitter that her baby only has “one thing in common with a chef” and that’s “the ability to get emotional at meal times.”
At the time of writing, Kate has not revealed who the baby’s father is. On Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live aftershow, she revealed to the Bravo boss and fans that she’s planning on raising her kid alone.
“I’m doing it solo and perhaps with some help, but I’m happy to do it alone,” the 39-year-old celeb revealed. Ben gifted Kate some presents when her baby boy was born and called her his “great friend” on Instagram.
Throwback: Ben asked Kate about kids
During Below Deck season 5, Ben asked Kate if she wanted to have a family. She responded: “Of course I do, I’d be the best mom ever.” She then asked him if he does, and he said yeah, before Kate replied, “Really? I’m shocked.”
She later told Ben: “I feel like it’s not the path you’re on. You have a lot of freedom.” Then in a confessional, Ben admitted: “Ultimately, I would like to find a girl that realizes that I’m very ambitious and supports me.”
He adds: “Kate wants someone who’s a provider, that’s not really what I’m about.” Kate also tells Ben, “It’s like freedom [or] children. Boarding school, send them away.” Ben then mentions good boarding schools in Hong Kong.
