TEEN mom Chelsea Houska’s rarely seen ex Adam Lind has reappeared in a family photo with her daughter Aubree.
Earlier this year, the former teenage mom shocked fans when she shared an update on her co-parenting relationship with her eldest daughter’s father.
Adam, 33, and Aubree, 13, spent time together while his family got together to celebrate the Fourth of July.
The Teen Mom 2 graduate’s sister-in-law took to Instagram to share a group photo from the patriotic celebration, showing Adam and the teen huddled close and smiling together.
Adam donned a shorts jersey, camouflage shorts and a pair of Vans for the meeting.
In the snap, he and Chelsea’s 13-year-old daughter wore an oversized gray T-shirt and cut-off denim shorts.
Both father and daughter seemed really happy about the post, as did the rest of Adam’s family.
As previously mentioned, Chelsea, 31, stunned her fans with an update on her co-parenting relationship with Adam.
The pair have had a contentious relationship for a long time, but it seems things have changed for the better.
Chelsea has been candid over the years about her struggles co-parenting a child with Adam.

The couple welcomed their daughter Aubree when they were still in high school.
They have since been embroiled in heated feuds over custody and the handling of Adam’s various arrests and other matters.
The mother-of-four shared an update on their relationship in a recent interview with Ashley’s reality summary ahead of the premiere of her HGTV series Down Home Fab and revealed things are looking up.
Chelsea told the outlet, “Honestly, everyone wants to know about our relationship and where it stands and I totally understand that.”
“That’s a key question because it was such a big story[line] Of our.”
She shared, “Our relationship is fine. We’re not best friends, but we’re not enemies at all.”
“If I saw him, there would be no bad feelings at all.”
Chelsea elaborated further, revealing things have improved with Adam now that their 13-year-old can coordinate with him on his own.
Adam has been keeping a low profile lately.
He is no longer active on social media and, like Chelsea, is no longer appearing on the MTV reality series.
Chelsea’s baby daddy was arrested in May 2022 after a warrant was issued for violating a July 2017 court order regarding child support for Aubree.
Adam posted $2,000 bail and was released the same day.
UPS AND DOWNS
Fans got a glimpse of Chelsea and Adam’s troubled relationship in 16 & Pregnant and Teen Mom 2.
Viewers recently dug up an old clip from the show in which they expressed their sympathy for Chelsea after witnessing an unhappy moment between her and her ex.
The video, captioned “Adam wants to give baby back to Chelsea right after her surgery,” begins with Chelsea lying in a hospital bed recovering from a procedure.
Her baby daddy shows concern as he asked Chelsea: “Did it hurt when you woke up?”
The former MTV star declared, “Yes,” before adding, “They said there was a big ball of scar tissue under my kneecap.”
Chelsea continued: “They had to throw it out. That’s why it hurt so much.”
Adam is then shown trying to give his girlfriend’s baby Aubree back while nonchalantly declaring, “You’ll be fine.”
Aubree was shown staring in tears, leading an upset Adam to leave the baby at Chelsea’s bedside.
The toddler continued to pull on the drainage tubes attached to Chelsea’s knees, causing Chelsea to beg, overwhelmed, “Adam, please come and get her, she’s pulling on my leg.”
Adam then grabbed Aubree while whispering “little bugger” to himself.
FORWARD & UP
After Chelsea broke up with Adam, he met 35-year-old Cole DeBoer.
The couple had been together for some time and are now married.
They share three children of their own and Cole has a special bond with Chelsea’s daughter Aubree.
Fans are often amazed by the bond between Cole and Aubree.
In September 2022, he left fans in tears with an emotional video in tribute to his stepdaughter on her 13th birthday.
Chelsea’s husband has compiled adorable photos and clips of Aubree growing up over the years.
The slideshow started with Cole holding hands with the little one while looking at flowers.
The two appeared to be in costume for Halloween, as Aubree dressed up as Wonder Woman.
As the footage went on, Cole taught Aubree how to read and demonstrated how to dance to country music.
The Harry Styles song “Music For a Susi Restaurant” played in the background.
He captioned the post: “Happy Birthday Aubree! I can’t believe you’re 13 already! I love you.”
Fans jumped to the comments section after seeing the close bond between Cole and Aubree.
One fan said: “It touched me emotionally. It takes a special person to step in and raise another man’s child.”
Another fan added: “Awe this is cute! I love the way he championed Aubree!”
A third fan mentioned: “Cole walked into her life and didn’t even hesitate to love her and treat her like his own. This is 100% his daughter.”
“He’s a good guy. Chelsea won the lottery with him.”
A fourth person wrote, “It brought tears to my eyes too, and I’m really not a screamer.”
One commenter chimed in: “Be right back! Crying in the club! How sweet!”
