The 16 and Pregnant alum and Cole first locked eyes at a gas station in 2014. “He was across at the other pump,” she told Us Weekly in 2015. “And I looked, and he was staring at me. We didn’t even talk. We just kept looking at each other because we’re both shy. And then we were passing each other when we left because we lived out toward the same way.”
Days later, the traffic control specialist found the beautician on social media and sent her a message. The rest, as they say, is history. The pair moved in together in July 2015, and four months later, Cole asked Chelsea’s daughter, Aubree Lind-DeBoer, for permission to propose to her mom. Chelsea shares her daughter with ex Adam Lind.
The happy couple wed in October 2016 during a small ceremony attended by their closest friends and family members. Chelsea and Cole welcomed their first child, son Watson, in January 2017. In August 2018, the proud mama gave birth to daughter Layne. Two years later, the reality star announced she and her husband were expecting baby No. 4.
“One more DeBoer! Coming early 2021,” she captioned an Instagram photo of a piece of wood featuring the names Cole, Chelsea, Aubree, Watson and Layne — and the word “Baby” written underneath them with a little heart. Days after announcing the MTV star was expecting, she revealed she was having a girl and shared photos from her sweet gender reveal party. On January 25, 2021, Chelsea gave birth to daughter Walker June DeBoer.
Before finding her Mr. Right in Cole, Chelsea dated Adam on and off during and after high school. She gave birth to Aubree during her senior year, which was her central storyline on 16 and Pregnant. The demise of Chelsea and Adam’s relationship was featured on seasons 1 and 2 of Teen Mom.
Adam has since floated in and out of Aubree’s life, as he struggled with legal issues and drug addiction, which prompted Cole to reveal on a February 2019 episode of Teen Mom that he wanted to adopt her “right now.”
Chelsea then left Teen Mom 2 in December 2020, but she still shared regular updates with fans via social media. In February 2022 she gave a rare update on Adam during an Instagram Live.
“I think he’s doing pretty good, the former reality star said in a screen recording that was posted to Reddit. “I don’t know because I don’t speak to him personally, but I have heard some good things, that he’s in a good place.”
She also updated viewers on Aubree’s relationship with her father, noting that their child was “not close with him.”
