After meeting in a gym, then 19-year-old Rachelle Perez and then 22-year-old Chase Keough began dating, and she became pregnant with their child after a couple of months.
Wanting to raise her family together, Rachelle moved in with Chase, upsetting her parents, who considered her new boyfriend “controlling.” Her sister, who also had a teenage pregnancy, agreed, believing Rachelle changed after moving in with him.

During Rachelle’s pregnancy, she and Chase frequently argued as he left her at the house while he worked all day and then hung out with his friends. Additionally, she admitted she changed for him as he felt her silliness indicated a lack of maturity.
After Boston’s birth, he didn’t want anyone coming over to see the baby because Rachelle was having a hard time, and he wanted to spend alone time with his child. However, it upset the family, who believed he isolated her.
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down production on the show, the high school teenager had to film their lives but couldn’t find the energy as she thought her body was still “out of whack” after the birth.
Additionally, she and Chase continued to fight as she believes he didn’t understand her changing moods. She also admitted she thought she mainly loved him due to them having a child together. Therefore, Rachelle decided to move her and Boston back into her parent’s house.
