Life Below Zero: What Happened To Agnes Hailstone First Husband?
Before marrying her current husband Edward “Chip” Hailstone, Agnes Hailstone was married to the father of her two sons Jonathon Carter and Douglas Carter who is her first husband. Unfortunately, not many details regarding her ex-husband are available at the time of this article.
Agnes’s current husband is named Chip Hailstone. Born in 1969, Chip is 54 years old and he was born and raised in Montana. When he was 19 years old, he visited Alaska and never left.
Daniel, his father, taught him many survival skills at a very young age, including hunting, fishing, and simple crafts. After visiting Alaska in 1988, lured by the exhilarating experience of hunting, Chip decided to never return to Montana. The 19-year-old kid found his one true love, Agnes, an Alaskan native, and made the permanent relocation to Noovrik, beside the Kobuk River.
Viewers noticed that Chip was absent from one season of Life Below Zero if you ever decide to binge-watch all 11 of the seasons. This is because the native of Alaska received a 15-month prison sentence while being filmed.
Chip completed his term in Season 10 while his wife Agnes and their younger daughters assumed responsibility for hunting. Many fans are still perplexed as to why Chip (real name: Edward) was sent to prison in the first place, even though he was freed and is now back to steal the show on the Discovery Channel.
Chip was accused of two counts of perjury and providing false statements to police, and in July 2017, he was given a 15-month prison sentence. Chip stated that his daughter Tinmaiq, who was just 17 years old at the time, had been physically abused by an Alaskan state trooper a few years prior, in 2011.
In another incident, he said his stepson got into a fight with a Noorvik resident and the resident pointed a rifle at his daughter. Chip first received a three-year probationary term, but he later filed an appeal. He missed the crucial hunting season with his family because of his incarceration.
Being an Inupiat Eskimo, Agnes spent her early years hunting and fishing in the Alaskan wilderness. She was born and reared in Alaska.
“While we have been patiently waiting for Chip to come home, we’ve decided to go out hunting,” Agnes said at the time. “So hopefully, when my husband finally gets home, we can have something fresh waiting for him.”
She added, “The last 10 months have been pretty long and sad with Chip being gone. Food didn’t taste good, coffee didn’t taste good. But I got through it. I had my daughters with me and they’ve actually gone from walking behind me to walking by my side and hunting with me. It’s been really awesome watching these girls in the last year grow up… We survived, we’ve improved, and now we’re just a lot stronger.”

Chip and Agnes, who were recently blessed with a grandchild from their oldest daughter, have enjoyed a happy life of friendship and mutual trust. For over seven years, the audience has been witness to their co-dependent equation.
