“Holy crap, this hits home.” Chelsea Houska now sees countless women, many victims of domestic violence, thanking her for an Instagram post raising awareness for the commonplace form of abuse that so often goes under-the-radar. The “Teen Mom 2” star, herself happily married to husband Cole DeBoer since 2016, updated her Instagram ahead of the weekend with an adorable selfie featuring 3-year-old son Watson.
Co-star Kailyn Lowry may have cried her eyes out – “The cutest” – at the snap, but the comments section shows one thing. Thanks. Scroll for more.
Chelsea’s post came with a selfie snap of herself looking gorgeous and holding a grinning Watson. The MTV face may have caught the eye with her only son, but this post was about the caption. Chelsea, followed by 5.7 million, is the most-followed “Teen Mom” cast member. She wrote:
“No one should have to live in fear, especially in their own home. I’m so proud to partner with Children’s Inn to help #DriveOutDV from our community. Together, we can make an impact. Learn more and get your shirt at www.driveoutdv.com ❤️❤️❤️ @chssdorg.” More below.
Chelsea herself has links to a man charged with domestic violence. Adam Lind, father to Chelsea’s eldest daughter Aubree, was arrested in November 2017 and charged with four counts of domestic assault against an ex-girlfriend.
Responses to Chelsea’s post proved very moving indeed. “Holy crap this hits home. Left domestic violence in 2/2019 and have been raising my crew of kids alone ever since. You used to be in that type of situation and I’ve loved watching you be loved correctly by cole,” one fan wrote. Scroll for more.
Another fan replied: “I grew up in domestic violence and I appreciate this post more than words can say ♥️.”
Chelsea, who was recently unfollowed by approximately 5,000 fans in a white “privilege” storm as her then-silence over murdered black man George Floyd was deemed tone-deaf – Chelsea was posting about cute blazers – more than got respect with this post.
A fan spoke of their own “broken arms.” They added: “The hospital stays I had they were all believed when I told people I fell I tripped I walked into a wall this needs to be helped.” More after the jump.
Chelsea proves adored for having one of the steadiest relationships on the MTV franchise. Co-star Kailyn Lowry is single and pregnant with her fourth, former co-star Jenelle Evans is seemingly reunited with the man she once took out a restraining order against. “Teen Mom OG” star Mackenzie McKee is also separated from rocky husband Josh.
Chelsea met Cole at a gas station. “He was across at the other pump,” she told Us Weekly, adding that “we didn’t even talk” and that they were both “shy.” The couple has since welcomed son Watson and daughter Layne.
