Cold and Debbie’s relationship has always struck viewers as odd

90 Day Fiancé star Colt is an only child and has an odd relationship with his mom, Debbie, to say the least. When Colt was engaged and then married to Larissa Dos Santos Lima, Debbie constantly voiced her opinion on Larissa’s choices.

While there’s no denying that Debbie and Colt’s relationship is a little odd to most people, Debbie shed some light on the reasons behind it in a recent episode of 90 Day: The Single Life. The Las Vegas native’s doctor told her she probably couldn’t have children when she was younger, and her body would have a hard time carrying a child. When she got pregnant with Colt, it came as a shock to even her.

“Colt and I have always had a really close relationship. He is my miracle baby,” Debbie said. “Colt was born really early. He was not expected to live. When he was born he was on oxygen, he was on a ventilator for another four or five months. Thank God he came through so Colt and I kind of have a special bond between us.”

Debbie brought this up in response to Colt’s announcement in the 90 Day: The Single Life season 2 premiere that Debbie has three months to find someplace else to live. Colt and Vanessa want to enjoy some time alone without his mother in the same house. While Debbie understands, she said that the way Colt surprised her with the news hurt her feelings.
