Chelsea Houska, 29, revealed what her baby bump looks like now that the Teen Mom 2 alum is more than halfway through her pregnancy. On Dec. 8, the expecting mother shared a selfie of herself rocking an AC/DC-inspired tee that instead read “MA/MA” over her growing bun in the oven. Despite her happy smile, Chelsea admitted that her fourth pregnancy hasn’t exactly been all rainbows and sunshine.

“Ohhhhh baby. I’ve been SO emotional this pregnancy…everything I buy im like oh my gosh what if this really IS the last time buying tiny little newborn items,” Chelsea wrote in her caption. She then revealed the physical ailments her pregnancy has brought on, adding, “I’m soaking in all the kicks, swollen ankles and back pain this time around because I really am just so grateful [hear emoji] I’m the luckiest mama.” 

Like Chelsea suggested, she’s seeing the pregnancy pains as blessings — so much so, she’s not turned off towards the idea of having a fifth baby. One fan commented, “5 is the best number! One more time sis! Lol!,” and Chelsea responded, “hahahahahaha hey I’m not positive this is it but just in case I’m soaking it all in” with laughing emojis.

Chelsea’s former co-star on Teen Mom 2, Kailyn Lowry, also hopped into the comments section to leave her thoughts. “i love this whole look,” the fellow mom wrote, adding, “including the bump.” Chelsea has been indeed owning her baby bump. In September, Chelsea celebrated being “almost half way there” with her “baby girl” by posting a photo of her bun in a pair of yoga pants.

Chelsea announced that she was welcoming another baby with husband Cole DeBoer in August, making this their third child together. Chelsea and Cole share kids Watson, 3, and Layne, 2, and Cole adopted Chelsea’s daughter Aubree, 11, whom his wife shares with her ex Adam Lind.

After the baby news broke, Chelsea had another big announcement: she was quitting Teen Mom 2 after nearly 11 years on the MTV show. “MTV’s Teen Mom 2 has been a big part of my life for almost 11 years. After much thought and discussion with my family and friends, Cole and I have decided that this season will be our last. We are forever thankful to MTV and our crew, who are like family to us. We’re parting on the best of terms and will stay in touch long after this,” Chelsea wrote in an Instagram message in the beginning of November.
