They were once “strangers picked to live in a house,” but now Tony Raines and Madison Walls are officially co-parents!
The Real World: Skeletons stars welcomed a daughter yesterday in Austin. The couple, who met on the show in 2014, has stated that the baby’s name is Harper Delaney. Tony tweeted that Baby Harper weighed in at 6 lbs., 15 oz. but has not released any more information yet.
Tony and Madison began dating during their season and continued their relationship after the show ended. Madison announced her pregnancy in August but by September, the couple had confirmed via Instagram posts that they had split.
“Alright, everyone is asking and yes, Madison and I did split up,” Tony wrote in September. “The reason, I’m not sure if that should be made public. I’ll leave it up to her out of respect, even tho I was hurt… I never wanted things this way but I trust God has a plan. Thank y’all for understanding.”
It is rumored that the couple split after Madison found out that Tony had been unfaithful to her while he was filming The Challenge: Bloodlines in Turkey. (That season was filmed in June and July 2015, by the way.) In a recent interview with OK! magazine, however, Tony denied that the breakup was due to his making out with cast mate Christina LeBlanc.
Anyway, the exes seem to be getting along much better these days. The day before Madison gave birth, both she and Tony posted photos of their joint shopping trip. In his interview with OK! magazine, Tony seemed to be hinting that there may be hope for a “Tadison” reunion down the road.
“Madison and I are currently not together,” Tony said. “We’re working through that and trying to do the best we can. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. When this baby comes along, my feelings may change. Moving [to Texas where Madison lives] is definitely in the back of my head. Maybe Madison and I could work on our relationship for the sake of Harper.”
Madison seems to be open to the idea too, judging by the photo she just posted of herself with the baby and Tony. She captioned the photo, “My world.”
