Chelsea DeBoer (formerly Chelsea Houska) who landed fame previously as a teen parent on MTV’s Teen Mom 2, is back again on television. She is showcasing a different side of herself in Down Home Fab. This new show on HGTV starring herself and her husband Cole DeBoer premiered on 16 January 2023. The series follows the couple’s home renovation journey as they work with clients to help make their dream home projects a reality, while also letting people now and then into their personal life. So, it appears Chelsea’s return in a way has also reminded people of her mother Mary Kneip who they were also introduced to back in the Teen Mom days.
This writing is therefore about Chelsea DeBoer’s mom.
Meet Mary Kneip, Chelsea DeBoer Mom
When Teen Mom 2 premiered on MTV on 11 January 2011, Mary Kneip appeared on the show with her daughter Chelsea DeBoer and her husband, Cole DeBoer, also with his grandchildren Watson Cole DeBoer and Aubree Skye Lind-Houska.
Mary and Cole apparently even allowed their then-16-year-old daughter Chelsea to do 16 and Pregnant back in 2010.
It appears Mary and Cole have since long ago been separated. And it was with Cole and not with Mary that Chelsea grew up afterward. But, in later years, Chelsea with her husband and their daughter seemed to have gone to live together with Mary again.
Because in an October 2019 episode of Teen Mom 2, the mother-daughter duo was seen hugging it out after a tense conversation about moving out.
Thrilled over purchasing land, Chelsea was seen telling her mom her idea of one day moving into her own dream house. And while Chelsea and Cole were not already sure of the timeline of their move, Mary already seemed devastated. She tried explaining to her daughter that she should not rush into moving so far away. Mary actually teared up that she will be all alone now and that she won’t be able to see her grandchild often.
Mary shares three more daughters with her ex-husband Randy. Chelsea is the youngest one and above her, there are three sisters: Melissa, Angie, and Emily. They rarely appeared on the MTV reality show about their younger sister. All the sisters seemed pretty close on their social media.

Yes. Mary Kneip and Chelsea DeBoer do seem to have a good enough relationship. At the time of this writing, they certainly seem to be talking to each other.
For instance, on Mother’s Day not long ago, Mary showed her people on Instagram that she just received flowers from her daughter and son-in-law. Next to this picture of these lovely white and yellow roses, she wrote “I love getting flowers! Thanks Chelsea and Cole!! Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms!!💐”.
