Teen Mom 2 cast member Chelsea Houska is pregnant with her third child, according to MTV. The reality star posted her announcement on Instagram late Thursday night, captioning the post, "GUESS WHAT! A sweet baby girl will be joining the DeBoer clan in a few short months! We could not be more excited!" Her husband, Cole DeBoer, shared the same photo on his account with the caption, "This proud dad is getting a new Bow and it's nailed my heart." The couple wed last October, according to MTV, and their son, Watson Cole, turned 1 year old in January.
Houska also has an 8-year-old daughter, Aubree, from a previous relationship, but according to In Touch, DeBoer is her de facto dad. She has very limited, supervised contact with her biological father, Adam Lind, and earlier this year, at her own request, her last name was legally changed to Lind-DeBoer. The family made no secret about their plans to expand, MTV reported, joking at their wedding about whether they could wait until after the reception to conceive another baby. Aubree is also thrilled, according to Houska. "Aubree did such a great job keeping this a secret and she said at school on Monday she's gonna walk in and start yelling it down the hallways!"
Fans of Teen Mom 2 know Aubree to be a doting big sister; In Touch reports that her recent name change was in part because she wanted the same name as her little brother. As her mom explained on the show, "she wants Watson to know that's his sister." A deleted scene from a September episode even shows Chelsea and Aubree arguing over who would get to hold Watson after they spent the day apart from him. Too cute!
Houska and DeBoer reminisced about the first time they saw each other on a recent episode, and their story is so perfect, you'd think it was made up. The pair first locked eyes at a gas station, they said, while they were both filling up. "I remember being like, 'Aubree, look at the hot guy,' and she was, like, three or four," Chelsea admitted. They never spoke, but after pulling out of the gas station, they realized that they were heading in the same direction. They passed each other repeatedly on the way home — DeBoer confessed that he was intentionally slowing down and speeding up to facilitate that — and when Houska got home, she told her friend that she'd marry that mystery man one day. "A few days later, he contacted me on social media and was like, 'Hi. I got gas next to you the other day,'" Houska told Us Weekly. "I was like, 'Thank you, Jesus.'"
DeBoer proposed to Houska a year later, according to MTV News. "Cole brought me to a personal spot in the woods where he had photos lining the tree," Houska said. "The pictures hanging were of him and I and the three of us as a family." And he even asked for his future stepdaughter's blessing beforehand: "Cole asked Aubree if it was okay if he married her mommy," Houska continued. "She immediately said yes, was extremely excited, and gave him a big hug."
The couple announced that they were expecting their first child together in July 2016, according to People, and married in a small private ceremony the following October. However, they held off on their reception for a year because they wanted Watson to be a part of it. That's when they first started the process of changing Aubree's last name, to reflect both of her families. MTV's cameras caught the moment Aubree told her stepdad about her plans. "That would be amazing," he responded. "Oh my God, my heart hurts. That's incredible. I'm really glad you want to do that." Now, the sweet family is growing once again, and Houska and her daughter have gotten the happy ending they deserve.
