One of the most adorable kids in the entire Teen Mom universe has got to be Aubree Lind, right?!
(Actually, we don’t feel comfortable ranking the adorableness of the kids, because they are all as precious as can be, but let’s just go with it.)
Aubree is smart, sassy, funny, and so very, very cute. She’s a great big sister to Watson, and it’s clear from watching Teen Mom 2 that she’s a super sweet kid.
But there’s one thing that she’s not these days …
And that’s a Lind.
Yep, after years of talking about it, Chelsea Houska has finally made it happen: she’s gone to court to change Aubree’s name!
Last month, we discussed how Chelsea and Adam had a court date to go over the name change and a new visitation schedule, and that date was last week.
According to a new report from The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, the judge agreed to the name change, and now Aubree’s last name has gone from Lind to Lind-DeBoer.
As for the visitation issue … well, that’s a little more complicated.
If you’ve been keeping up with Adam for the past year or so, ever since he officially quit filming for Teen Mom 2, you know that things haven’t been that great for him.
Back in the spring, he failed a court-ordered drug test after having been found with a “substantial” amount of meth in his system.
The drug test was done shortly before a scheduled weekend with his youngest daughter, Paislee — meaning that he very well could have been high around his kids.
In addition to the drugs, Adam’s been arrested multiple times on domestic violence charges in the past few months.
His ex-girlfriend has even said that he’s not only been violent towards others — he’s also threatened to kill himself more than once.
He’s obviously not doing well in any sense, right?
Still, according to his agreement with Chelsea, he got visits with Aubree every other weekend. The visits took place at his parents’ home, where they supervised.
Yeah, as of this latest court date, that’s not happening anymore.
Now, Adam will only be allowed to see Aubree at an actual visitation center. She’ll still go see his parents, but it’ll only be once a month.
Adam will not be permitted to be around for those visits.
A source claims that “Adam’s parents were not happy about the changes made,” and that “they are very upset.”
Which is weird, because you’d think they’d be upset about their son being a violent meth addict, not about the court doing something to protect their granddaughter from that.
It seems that even Adam himself wasn’t all that upset about the new changes. He reportedly agreed to everything without anyone even having to testify.
And if you’d be curious to see an Adam who’s actually easy to deal with, don’t worry — MTV cameras were there in the courtroom.
The source says that “This was the first time Chelsea and members of the production crew have seen Adam in a long time, and they were shocked by his appearance.”
“He has lost a lot of weight, and appeared pale with dark circles under his eyes. He did not look like he’s in a good place.”
Apparently Adam didn’t hang around after the hearing at all, but during the hearing, “He told the judge that he currently has no job and hasn’t worked anywhere in a year.”
“He also confirmed that he has no vehicle.”
While it’s upsetting to see Adam in such a terrible place, it’s wonderful that Chelsea has taken these steps to protect Aubree, and to make her happy.
Also, it looks like the next season of Teen Mom 2 is shaping up to be pretty darn juicy …
