The Teen Mom OG cast members have been starring on network television for nearly a decade now, which means that fans have seen them throughout multiple phases of their lives. Over the years, we’ve seen their personalities, their significant others, and their bodies change time and time again. As they go through pregnancies, cosmetic surgeries and weight loss programs, their bodies have fluctuated a great deal over the years.
But when do these changes become concerning? The cast have been open about being insecure and wanting to change their bodies over the years, but these insecurities can sometimes reach extreme cases. Now fans are beginning to worry that one of the most cherished members of the cast could be suffering from an eating disorder.
It’s a girl!
Eating disorders are a widespread mental illness and can affect people of any race, gender, shape, or size. Along with their high fatality rate, they can mean permanent health complications for those affected. Eating disorders are dangerous enough, but an eating disorder during a pregnancy can be even more harmful.
Chelsea Houska just revealed that she is pregnant with her third child, and she has been sharing endless exciting updates about her pregnancy. But she’s also recently dropped a huge amount of weight after giving birth to her second child, Watson.
Now, Chelsea is sharing pictures of her baby bump, and it’s clear that she’s staying petite during this pregnancy. A recent share of her bump at 20 weeks received endless comments about her slim shape.
Reddit user keatonpotat0es joked, “If that’s her at 20 weeks pregnant then I must be like six years pregnant.” User teabaggedyourdrumset wrote, “Jesus I’m about to be 23 weeks tomorrow with my second and I’m HUGE. I can’t believe she’s so tiny with her third. Good for her!”
But there were some fans who are concerned about Chelsea’s relationship with her weight. This may have to do with her promoting a weight loss program while she’s pregnant.
“I mean I feel like there’s being in shape while pregnant, and then there’s this. Tbh i won’t be surprised when a few years from now Chelsea reveals she was suffering from an eating disorder,” wrote user disenchanted_elle. “Unpopular opinion so come at me bro.”
User Pinkiexoxoxo wrote, “2 stints of treatment at [eating disorder clinic] Renfrew for anorexia in my early 20’s and I agree. I feel like eating healthy and treating your body with respect is a GOOD thing but i feel like her obsession with weight after Watson and now into this pregnancy is going a bit far. I think she ‘prides’ herself on being little as opposed to be being healthy.” User awolfsvalentine wrote, “i too have been admitted for treatment twice for anorexia and recognize patterns of behavior i’m seeing with our girl chels here.”
