Fans of the Teen Mom 2 will remember Randy Houska as Chelsea DeBoer’s father who often advised her when she was a new mom. Well, now that the reality star’s not a “teen mom” anymore and is showcasing a different side of herself in Down Home Fab, will we still see Randy in her new show? Guess, we’ll just have to wait and watch.
So, meanwhile, learn all about Randy’s job and his net worth.
Meet Randy Houska, Chelsea DeBoer Dad
Randy Houska stepped into the limelight back in 2011 alongside his daughter Chelsea DeBoer who starred in Teen Mom 2. Thereafter, he was always seen beside her — advising and giving his opinion of his daughter’s baby daddy Adam Lind — for the whole 8 years she was with the popular MTV series.
Also, it was Randy who allowed Chelsea to first join Teen Mom 2, and he doesn’t regret it one bit. According to him, while the show may stray from the main topic, it always makes sure to depict how difficult life for young people is when you throw a child in the mix. “The producers keep their eye on the target at all times and the end result is that even if the storyline strays, it comes back to the main topic of teen parenthood difficulties, often with heartbreaking scenes,” he added.
So, even though at times Chelsea was stressed out, things went well for her, and now she’s a reality star who runs Down Home Fab with her husband Cole DeBoer.
Still supportive as ever, Randy promoted his daughter on his Twitter, “Don’t forget to tune in to @hgtv tonight at 8 pm CST for season 1 episode 1 of #DownHomeFab !!”
Randy had Chelsea with his ex-wife Mary Kneip @glammamary who also starred in Teen Mom 2. They divorced when Chelsea was just a kid. Fortunately, they remained on cordial terms while raising their four daughters.
Is Randy Houska Living Off Chelsea DeBoer?
No, Randy Houska isn’t living off his daughter. He’s a dentist who’s made millions on his own! To better answer this question, Randy himself once tweeted, “Lol. I am living on 4 years of college, 4 years of dental school, and 29 years of being a dentist.”
The only reason he was on Teen Mom 2 was because of his love for his daughter and also for the fans who largely loved his humor.
