Aside from diaper-changing and arguing with their baby daddies, the women of Teen Mom have also been busy doing something else — getting married! Chelsea Houska and Maci Bookout both got married in 2016, while Leah Messer got engaged to boyfriend Jaylan Mobley in 2022. Even the MTV dads have gotten in on the wedding trend. Jo Rivera married Vee Torres in 2018, while Ryan Edwards has been married to Mackenzie Standifer since 2017.
As for Chelsea, her wedding to Cole DeBoer was especially important because it included her daughter, Aubree.
“Even though I’m marrying Cole, it’s such a big moment for [Aubree] also because she hasn’t had the best experience with her dad [Adam Lind],” she said to MTV News. “Her being able to have her own dress and feel beautiful and get ready for this day just as much as I am was really amazing.”
Chelsea and her hubby have since moved on from the reality show franchise, announcing their exit in October 2020.
“Well kids, that’s a wrap. Been a fun run on [MTV’s Teen Mom/Teen Mom 2],” the reality dad tweeted at the time. “What’s next? Seriously, though, it has been a part of [Chelsea Houska’s] entire adult life. We all expanded our horizons and grew as people #NoRegrets. See y’all on the flip side.”
In addition to Aubree, Chelsea shares daughters Layne, born in August 2018, and Walker, born in January 2021, and son Watson, born in January 2017.
Prior to their nuptials, Chelsea told MTV, “Cole has been wonderful — he’s really laid back, and I get anxiety really easily. So he’s been amazing. And I had a wedding planner, so she took a lot of the stress out of it.”
“It feels amazing,” she told People in August. “I never imagined myself being here today, but I couldn’t imagine myself being anywhere else.”
“I can’t even express how I’m feeling. I wanted this moment to be the perfect moment for her,” her fiancé added.
While this marks the U.S. Army cyber officer’s first engagement, Leah has been married twice before. She married high school boyfriend Corey Simms in October 2010 after welcoming twins the previous December. The former couple coparent daughters Aliannah and Aleeah. Following her June 2011 divorce, Leah moved on with Jeremy Calvert. The two tied the knot in April 2012 before welcoming daughter Adalynn in February 2013. They divorced in 2015.
