When it comes to complicated relationships on reality television, Siesta Key’s Madisson Hausburg and her fiancé, Ismael ‘Ish’ Soto, most definitely come to mind. Due to the pair’s 20-year age difference, they’ve faced some challenges since they began dating.
However, as of August 2021, they’re going strong! In fact, on August 4, Madisson revealed she and Ish are expecting baby No. 1! “Mom and Dad,” the Florida native captioned a photo via Instagram, along with their child’s due date of January 1, 2022.
Madisson’s exciting news comes a year after she announced the couple’s engagement. “I always imagined that when I got engaged my hair would be perfectly blown out and my nails would be done. But my favorite part of this photo is how raw and real it is,” she began via Instagram at the time.
“[Ish] loves me exactly the way I am — quarantine roots, bitten nails and all! I love you to my core, Ismael Soto,” Madisson continued. “I’m so lucky to spend the rest of my life with someone who reminds me every single day how strong, smart and kind I am, and that I can be anything I want in this world. You make me better. It’s not a typical fairytale, but it’s OUR fairytale. Here’s to forever, my fiancé”

What does Ish do for a living?
As it happens, Madisson and Ish met through his work. Prior to their romance, he was a coexecutive producer on Siesta Key. Additionally, Ish’s LinkedIn page lists a number of other production jobs over the years — including roles with Prometheus Entertainment, Entertainment One and ITV.
Madisson believes Ish’s role behind the cameras on Siesta Key now makes him a more knowledgeable cast member and partner. “He knows me, like, he knows my personality deep down to my core,” she previously told Life & Style. “He’s just better at filming the show than any of us, because he’s not going to let us get away with any of that. He was a great producer.”
How much money is Ish worth?
Ish’s estimated net worth is currently unknown. That said, the average producer of a TV series makes around $100,000 a year, according to multiple outlets.
When are Ish and Madisson getting married?
Speaking exclusively with Life & Style in May 2021, Madisson gave an update on her upcoming nuptials to Ish.
“It’s really tough planning a wedding in COVID, you know? It’s something we obviously never planned for,” she explained. “I’ve watched a lot of my friends who had planned to get married this past year — the past couple of years — and their weddings are canceled and their whole lives are in turmoil. So, we didn’t want to go and plan something and then have it canceled.”
For the time being, Madisson and Ish are holding off on their ceremony and reception. “There was a lot of hesitation … his parents are older, my parents are older and just having people in large groups … it’s a scary thing right now,” Madisson added. “It’s been a very tough process; very overwhelming, for sure.”
