‘Teen Mom’ Star Chelsea Houska Is Having a Girl — When Is She Due?

Chelsea Houska is expanding her family — the Teen Mom star announced baby no. 4 on Instagram on August 5, as she and husband Cole DeBoer were in the midst of updating fans on their new home construction. On August 7, Houska and her family revealed that her fourth will be a little girl — but when is the reality star due?

Chelsea Houska has two kids with Cole DeBoer

When Houska first graced our television screens on 16 and Pregnant, she was a teenager who was dealing with the fallout of having a boyfriend who didn’t support her. Houska and her ex, Adam Lind, had what some might call a “toxic” relationship, with Lind often not offering support to Houska during her pregnancy and beyond. Houska shares her oldest child, Aubree, with Lind, though DeBoer has become a father figure in Aubree’s life.

Deboer and Houska met at a gas station in South Dakota back in 2014, and they moved in together in 2015. That same year, DeBoer proposed, and they wed in 2016. The two welcomed their first child together, son Watson, in January 2017, and their second child, daughter Layne, in 2018.

Baby no. 4 is due sometime in January

Houska surprised fans in August when she announced the two were adding to the DeBoer family. In the midst of building a new home, Houska posted a photo of her family’s names written out on part of the wooden frame of the home. “One More DeBoer! Coming early 2021,” Houska wrote.

Though Houska didn’t give a specific due date, she did hint that the baby would be born early next year. And based on the couple’s gender reveal photos, which Houska said were taken a few weeks ago, the baby is likely due just after the new year in early January. Gender reveals typically happen between 18 and 21 weeks, and if the photos were taken two weeks prior, that would put Houska’s due date sometime in the first week of January.

DeBoer has taken Aubree in like his own daughter

DeBoer and Houska might only have two kids together, but Houska’s oldest child, Aubree, has become another daughter to DeBoer. He connected with Aubree instantly, and he even hoped Houska’s ex would relinquish custody of Aubree so he could adopt her.

DeBoer attended Aubree’s father-daughter dance with her back in 2016, solidifying that he wanted to be a father figure in her life. Now, Deboer even cries when he and Houska drop Aubree off at her first day of school each year.

Chelsea Houska’s oldest child, Aubree, is from a previous relationship.

Fans are thrilled at the news of the couple’s pregnancy   

Houska and DeBoer have been fan favorites for a while now among Teen Mom viewers, and many were thrilled to learn the couple is welcoming another child. Houska’s post was filled with congratulations. “We need a baby bump pic soon!!!” one user wrote. Houska posted a bump pic on August 6.

Though many were excited for Houska and DeBoer, some weren’t as excited to see the two welcoming another child. “Super cute but please stop making [babies],” one user wrote. Others suggested Houska was only having more kids for television, but fans were quick to defend her decision to grow her family.
