It’s a boy for Teen Mom 2 stars Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer!
Just one day after Jenelle Evans welcomed a baby girl, Chelsea announced that she had given birth to a baby boy. Chelsea’s little one came a few weeks early, as he was originally due on February 14, but it appears that both mom and baby are doing great.
Chelsea wasted no time in sharing the baby’s name and first photos with her fans.
“Welcome to the world sweet boy,” she captioned a photo posted to Instagram showing the baby’s hand. Soon after, she posted a full portrait of her newborn son, announcing that they have named him Watson Cole. Chelsea’s husband Cole also posted the photo, adding, “My heart is so full” to the caption.
This is the first child for Cole and second for Chelsea. She is already the mom of seven-year-old Aubree, whose father is Adam Lind.
Fans were surprised that Chelsea had chosen to share her son’s photo and name right away. (After all, her fellow ‘Teen Mom’ers Maci Bookout and Jenelle Evans purposely kept their baby’s faces out of the public for a long time. Maci even stated that she only did that to piss off the show’s fans.)
While Chelsea was open about her son’s name and photo, don’t expect to see any ‘Teen Mom 2’ footage showing Chelsea squeezing Baby Watson from her loins. She has been adamant that MTV cameras would not be allowed in the birthing room.
Back in December, Chelsea explained that she wanted to keep a lot of the pregnancy private, out of respect for her husband.
“This is Cole’s firstborn baby and he didn’t sign up for this show so I just want him to be able to have his moments to himself and not have to feel like he has to share them with everybody,” Chelsea told WetPaint. “So it’s a hard line that I’m trying to balance right now…I didn’t have [cameras] at doctor’s appointments or anything…but they’re at the baby shower for a while.”
