Season 2 of OutDaughtered is (sadly) coming to a close, which means fans won’t get to see much more of Dale Mills — aka Uncle Dale. Everyone’s favorite TV uncle is notorious for cracking jokes, but on tonight’s episode, he showed a more serious side.
Adam Busby — Dale’s brother-in-law — underwent his first session with his therapist for postpartum depression recently and explained that fatherhood is “the one thing” in his life that he believes his depression hasn’t affected. “I will pour everything into them,” he said. “And I feel like I do that so much, to the point where I don’t have anything left for anything else.”
Yet up until that point, he hadn’t told Dale or his other brother-in-law, Nick, about his struggles. “Dale, for one thing. I mean how the heck is he going to react to something like that? He’s just going to make jokes,” Adam said. Yet surprisingly, Dale took the news well. He admitted, “It’s hard for me to be serious sometimes, but this isn’t something I would joke about. Ever… I’m glad we got to talk.” Get to know more about Uncle Dale below!
He has kids of his own (just not six of them)!
The reality star is a father-of-two to Kenzie, 7, and Bronson, 4. His wife, Crystal — who her nieces lovingly call Aunt Kiki — is Danielle Busby‘s sister.
He lost one of the quints once
On a recent episode of OutDaughtered, Dale lost Hazel while babysitting — oops! — and fans were loving it. One fan commented, “Literally best episode ever. Dale seriously makes the show that much better! Love him.” Another added, “Uncle Dale might be the realist person on reality TV.” A third chimed in, “Haven’t laughed that hard in awhile. Thanks, Uncle Dale!”
Q: What happens when Uncle Dale babysits?
A: One face slap & a missing quint!

He’s the Director of Sales at Sprint Safety
And he’s gotten rave reviews! According to his LinkedIn profile, a former co-worker wrote, “Dale is a true professional, very detailed and always comes through for his client. Dale is quickly becoming the ‘go-to guy’ for all project communication needs. You would be hard pressed to find a better professional when it comes to refinery project communications.”
He met Drake
Just when we thought he couldn’t get any cooler! TBH, we wish Uncle Dale was our uncle. Don’t worry, Nick, the kids love you too!
The season finale of OutDaughtered airs Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
