It’s hard to believe it’s been more than 10 years since we first met Chelsea Houska on 16 and Pregnant — and yet, here we are. Not only has Chelsea become an amazing mom to her daughter, Aubree, who was born during Season 2 of the MTV series, but she’s gone on to get married and add two more kids to her family.
Chelsea Houska’s kids are part of a blended family.
Chelsea’s oldest daughter, Aubree, was born on Sept. 7, 2009, just as she was beginning her senior year of high school. Her pregnancy with Aubree — as well as her tumultuous relationship with her ex/Aubree’s father, Adam Lind — was documented on 16 and Pregnant.
Ultimately, Chelsea and Adam broke up for good; he e and Aubree have had a sporadic relationship ever since.
On Oct. 1, 2016, Chelsea married Cole DeBoer. The couple has since welcomed a son, Watson (born on Jan. 25, 2017), and a daughter, Layne (born on Aug. 29, 2018).
Although Aubree’s biological father has struggled with drug addiction and repeat arrests, Cole has remained a constant presence in his step-daughter’s life. He even shared during an Instagram Q&A in November 2018 that he would “100-percent” adopt Aubree if given the chance. (Adam hasn’t given up his parental rights to Aubree, however, even though he did with Aubree’s younger half-sister, Paislee.)
When asked if if was difficult for him to take on the role of step-dad, Cole replied, “Not at all,” before offering advice to those in a similar situation. “Don’t force the bond. Make/enjoy moments. Be there. Support,” he said. “Show you care and are reliable. That’s Love.”
