'Adds to the Love'
Houska and DeBoer are one of the more beloved couples on Teen Mom, and their fans were quick to praise them as an "amazing mother" and "great father" who deserved "all the happiness."

Looking back, Houska and DeBoer have been looking to add a fourth kiddo to their brood for a few years. The two told E! News back in February 2019, "We definitely want more kids—at least one—but I think we're going to wait probably a little farther than the last two babies. Maybe when [Layne is] 2, we'll start thinking about it. But there will be more."
"I mean, Cole is just great all around," Houska gushed of her husband. "I'm more of the laid-back parent and he's definitely more paranoid and worried all the time, which is funny because it's usually the mom but I mean, he's so helpful. He changes diapers. He gets in there. He does it all."prev
