Below Deck alum Kate Chastain has had one busy week with a new show, a guest appearance, and taking on those pesky baby daddy rumors.
Ever since Kate welcomed her son Sullivan Cay in May, the rumor mill has been buzzing that Below Deck Med alum chef Ben Robinson is Sullivan’s father.
Kate has been mum on her baby daddy from the moment she revealed her pregnancy, sharing she was raising her child solo.
As Monsters and Critics previously reported, Kate already made it clear that her friend Ben was not her baby daddy.
However, that hasn’t stopped the online chatter, and Kate has had enough of it and once again set the record straight.
Kate took to Twitter to share a side-by-side picture of her son Sullivan and Ben as a baby to get her message across.
“It would be great if people would stop commenting and messaging me ‘baby Ben!’…….every single day. For reference this is Ben as a baby on the left next to Sullivan. Clearly not related,” Kate wrote in the tweet.
That wasn’t the only time this week the former chief stew addressed this crazy rumor.
Kate Chastain is ‘tired’ of chef Ben Robinson baby daddy rumors
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight to promote her guest appearance on Project Runway and her new show with Captain Lee Robinson, Kate managed to slide in the hot topic of baby daddy Ben.
It all started when Ben shared a picture of a very pregnant Kate and himself on Instagram. Kate did not want it shared, but Ben did it anyway as a joke.
Despite what started as a joke and got the rumor mill buzzing, Kate’s over the comparison because there isn’t a comparison.
“The truth is I am tired of people comparing my baby to being Ben ‘He looks like Ben,’ and I want to be like he actually does not look like Ben,” she shared with ET.
The former chief stew does admit that her friend Ben will be the funcle, aka fun uncle, while also admitting her friend Captain Lee is a grandpa figure to baby Sullivan.
It’s a good thing, too, since Captain Lee’s spending a lot of time at Kate’s these days, thanks to their new Bravo show.
