From Harry James Thornton's life as a dad of two kids, to Ebie's battle with anxiety, to Hana Giraldo's life on tour with her parents, fans have gotten to know the reality stars on a deeper level since the show debuted in January of 2022.
On the Jan. 26 episode of the E! series, Austin Gunn (who is the son of professional wrestler Billy Gunn) opened up about his mom's health battles, and he shared more about what it was like to have a famous father growing up.

On the show, after the cast took on a particularly arduous task (which involved artificially inseminating cows), Austin called his mom to discuss her recent surgery.
"This past year, my mom has been dealing with a lot of health issues, and we've been trying to get her physically back on top. Without explaining too much, she needed surgery..." Austin explained in his confessional. He did not elaborate further on the nature of her health issues, though Tina herself referred to the matter as a "long road."
Austin went on to discuss how important his mom became during his upbringing, when his dad was constantly away for wrestling matches and events.
"When I was younger, my dad was on the road all the time, and my parents divorced when I was just 10 years old," Austin said on the show. "It was really hard for the whole family. My mom had to be that rock for me and Colten, my brother. She's just super important to me."
In addition to talking about his mom's health and her surgery, Austin and Tina chatted about the wrestler's romantic connection to his co-star, Hana Giraldo.
