This news is terrifying. Hopefully, Chelsea makes a full recovery!
Her most recent news has fans concerned though. Just a few weeks after giving birth to her third child, Chelsea is dealing with intense postpartum complications. She is battling a potentially dangerous condition while caring for her newborn.
This summer, Chelsea promised that the expecting parents would keep some parts of their journey to themselves. On Twitter, she wrote that she would not tell anyone when she went into labor.
“So I’m just curious…I went into labor in the middle of the night with Aubree and Watson…and I’m anxious to see what happens with this baby. Did you go into labor during the DAY or NIGHT?” Chelsea tweeted.
“Thought you was in labor now?” one fan asked in response. “Just seen a post saying you was.”
Chelsea replied, “I can promise everyone that whenever I AM in labor… nobody will know.”
And the Teen Mom 2 star stayed true to her word. The delivery of her daughter was kept under wraps until she arrived safely in the hospital on August 29.
“Happy birthday to YOU, sweet baby Layne,” Chelsea wrote in an Instagram post of her newborn daughter dozing peacefully with a giant blue bow on her head.
The happy couple initially broke the news of Chelsea’s pregnancy via the social network as well.
“….GUESS WHAT!” Chelsea captioned a snap of her ultrasound. “A sweet baby girl will be joining the DeBoer clan in a few short months! We could not be more excited!”
Cole shared the picture on his own Instagram as well. “This proud dad is getting a new Bow…and it’s nailed my heart,” he wrote.
The couple kept the name that they had chosen for their little girl a secret until she was born. After she gave birth, Chelsea announced they chose the name Layne Ettie DeBoer. She has not yet made public the height or weight of her new daughter.
