There will always be ups and downs when it comes to being a reality TV star, and Chelsea Houska couldn’t help but get emotional when she reflected on the time she’s spent filming Teen Mom 2. In the years since she first appeared on 16 and Pregnant when she was only a high school senior in 2009, the MTV mama has since tied the knot with husband Cole DeBoer, welcomed three children and has a fourth on the way. While watching footage from the show, she reminisced about how far she’s come.

“Ten years, one husband and two more kids later … @ChelseaHouska’s dreams have all come true,” the Teen Mom Twitter captioned the footage. Sharing it on her own page, Chelsea, 28, added, “Seeing this knowing what I know now … makes my heart ache. What a journey it’s been.”

The reality TV star recently revealed on August 5 that she and Cole, 32, are expecting a daughter together. The new addition will be baby No. 4 for Chelsea, who shares daughter Aubree with ex Adam Lind and children Watson and Layne with her current husband. Though Cole may not be his stepdaughter’s biological father, he clearly loves her like his own, and she even took his last name in 2018 when she officially became Aubree Lind-DeBoer.

While the pregnant star has talked about having one or two more kids in the past, she hinted baby No. 4 might be the last new addition for the family. After making her announcement that they’ve got a bun in the oven, she told fans she was “98.5 percent sure” that they’re done having babies — but there’s still always that 1.5 percent chance. “This little babe will probably complete the fam!” she said. “But maybe we’ll get a wild hair in like five years, who knows.”

Her new little girl isn’t due until “early 2021,” but Chelsea is already proudly rocking a baby bump. “Baby No. 4 be poppin’,” she joked in a comment to a fan. She even showed off her growing belly on Instagram on August 6. “Hiii, little babe,” she wrote. It’s clear the mama is loving life these days — and who can blame her? Teen Mom was right when they said she really has achieved all of her dreams.
