Chelsea Houska couldn’t catch a break yesterday. The 29-year-old “Teen Mom 2” star stunned fans with her latest baby bump selfie, but with the post coming as America found itself divided over election results, backlash was quick to fill the comments section. Chelsea, the most-followed “Teen Mom,” updated her 5.9 million Instagram followers on her blossoming and fourth baby bump – the MTV face’s 2021-due baby is with 2016-married husband Cole DeBoer. The mom to Aubree, Watson, and Layne has now sparked a storm. Check it out below.
The photo, stunning, showed Chelsea home in South Dakota and flaunting her growing bump while snapping herself with a smartphone inside a Louis Vuitton case. The redhead, seen in tight spandex leggings, a matching top, plus an open denim jacket, showed off the bump, the pregnancy glow, and the style. A short caption came as only a black-heart emoji.
Chelsea, who has confirmed her fourth is a girl, racked herself up over 420,000 likes overnight, but comments have been slamming the star – seemingly, for posting her baby bump snap as now-elected and soon-to-be POTUS Joe Biden declared victory over Donald Trump.
“Read the room” was a comment kicking off the storm. Fans, responding by the masses, largely seemed to feel the comment was unwarranted, even if it gained likes.
“What if she is a Trump supporter who cares you say to mind our buisness but yet here you are butting your nose in Chelsea buisness on rather she is a Trump supporter or not.#sleepyjoesupporter,” one wrote.
Fans backing Chelsea, who was this year slammed for appearing tone-deaf after George Floyd’s murder, rallied up.
“So everyone in the USA has to post about politics, they can’t just post baby bump pictures because they are excited about their baby?” one asked, adding: “Chelsea has always stayed away from drama… perhaps posting politics would create it so she doesn’t. But somehow her celebrating her baby created drama anyway….”
Chelsea has stayed quiet, choosing not to get involved. Scroll for more photos.
Chelsea announced her pregnancy in early August, choosing to wait after “Teen Mom 2” co-star Kailyn Lowry welcomed fourth son Creed. The Itzy Ritzy collaborator has hinted that the fourth baby may be her last, but she hasn’t ruled out more. Chelsea went unusual with the pregnancy announcement, posting a wood-paneled doorway with the names of her household:
“Cole, Chelsea, Aubree, Watson, Layne,” the sign read, with “baby” and a heart emoji added. “One more DeBoer! Coming early 2021” the caption read.
