Since it premiered in 2019, the TLC reality series, sMothered, has followed the stories of mother-daughter pairs who are unusually close. So, when its fourth season, debuted in August of 2022 continuing to highlight duo, Angelica Michaux and Sunhe Dapron, it also introduced to viewers new addition Cathy Ellison and Ashley Hefner.
Having said that, here is a tell-all about who sMothered‘s Cathy Ellison is, her age, job, Instagram, and more.
Cathy Ellison On TLC’s sMothered
Cathy Ellison is appearing on the show alongside her 36-year-old daughter Ashley Hefner.
This pair keeping the norm alive on sMothered are unusually close. To the extent that they were shocked a few years ago when they learned they had been on a first date with the same man. Or, in Ashley’s words, every guy she has dated or brought home, either feared her mother or has fallen in love with her. So, that is how their relationship has been an issue Ashley talked to Insider.
And Cathy when addressing their bonding says she has been super close to her daughter since she graduated from college.
Cathy apparently has gone far as allowing her daughter to create an online dating profile for her.
These mother-daughter pairs also have had matching nipple piercings and have gotten tattoos together.
It was Cathy’s idea of getting matching floral tattoos, but it was hers only that ended up looking like a vagina.
While in Tampa Florida, this duo unknowingly met a producer whose friend was a producer for sMothered. One thing led to another, they wanted them to send their bios and finally, they were filming. But the pair did not start the process until they were in Jonesborough. The shooting began in the fall of 2021.
There are six more mom and daughter pairs joining Cathy and her daughter in this season of sMothered, including other two new pairs, and the show’s first-ever duo featuring a transgender woman.
How Many Kids Does Cathy Ellison Have?
Cathy Ellison has one more daughter. She is Samantha, aka Samantha Fonseca Samantha Chavez who turned 35 in June 2022.
‘Samantha Jo’ on Facebook, she wrote on social media that she is from Lima, Ohio, and by 2022 based in Johnson City, Tennessee.
So you know, Samantha is not exactly pleased about her mother and sister’s extreme bonding. She did not like it when her sister moved in next door.
Apparently, Cathy and Ashley moved to Jones- borough one year ago. Used to traveling as packs, they bought homes right next to each other in a subdivision in Jonesborough and fenced their yards in together so it is one big yard.
But again, it is not like Cathy is not fond of her other daughter. She also adores the other and tells that she can not imagine not living right by her children or does not understand some people who have children that live all the way across the United States and they only see them twice a year.
