In 2017, we met 16-year-old McKayla Adkins and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison, who were expecting their first child together.
Although there was a lot of tension between McKayla Adkins and Caelan’s families, the couple fought hard to maintain their relationship and eventually welcomed their second child two years later. McKayla Adkins and Caelan Morrison appeared in the first three seasons of The Unexpected, but have since split from the TLC reality series, and fans want to know what the teenage mum is up to these days.
Where Is ‘Unexpected’ Star McKayla Now?
When we last saw McKayla Adkins in season 3 of The Unexpected, she and Caelan were at odds, and things didn’t get any better after the pair left.
Although they briefly tried to rekindle their relationship, McKayla Adkins posted a video on YouTube in February 2020 titled “We broke up. My side of the story”. Today, it seems that she has completely distanced herself from Caelan. According to McKayla Adkins’s Instagram, she is now engaged to her boyfriend Ethan, who proposed to the former TLC reality star shortly after the couple’s one-year anniversary in April.
In an Instagram post, McKayla thanked her life partner for his patience and empathy throughout their short but meaningful relationship.
Meanwhile, it seems McKayla Adkins and the father of her children are still not quite on the same page. In January, Caelan posted a TikTok featuring their sons, and McKayla was not happy about it. The now 20-year-old mum previously revealed that she doesn’t want to see her children on social media – a rule that Caelan blatantly flouted.
McKayla Adkins wrote on social media, “I love how one of the very few times he has actually spent time with his children he can post a 15 sec TikTok and people think he should have custody of the kids. This world is insane.”
Hopefully Caelan and McKayla Adkins will one day get on the same page about their children, but for now McKayla is focused on creating a new life for her sons and new fiancé, and not everyone approves of the way she chooses to make a living.
