Like the other Teen Mom franchise stars, fans first met Houska on MTV's 16 & Pregnant. Her subsequent decade on Teen Mom 2 chronicled her raising her daughter, Aubree, her tumultuous relationship with Aubree's father, Adam, and her journey through her GED program, then beauty school. Houska would later go on to meet DeBoer on the show, and fans watched them from meet-cute to marriage.

Now, Houska and DeBoer have two children of their own in addition to Aubree, and Houska is expecting a fourth baby sometime soon. So far, there is no word on what fans can expect from her after Teen Mom 2 Season 10 is over.
