Jade made her television debut in 2018 when she appeared on Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. At just 17 years old, Jade gave birth to her daughter Kloie, who she shares with Sean Austin. The couple, who got engaged in 2022, have experienced their fair share of relationship drama.

Despite their on-again, off-again relationship, the couple recently committed to making things work. In a December 2022 interview with E! News, Jade revealed that Sean sought treatment for his addictions at a rehab facility, while she attended therapy sessions. “This season, compared to our first season of Young and Pregnant, it's like two different people,” Jade said. However, Jade’s relationship with Sean is not the only pairing that fans are curious about. Some want to know more about Jade’s BFF, Chau, who has now joined the fold.

Who is Jade’s friend, Chau?

On a previous episode of Teen Mom: The Next Chapter, Jade’s friend Chau surprised her at work making for a sweet reunion. Sean coordinated the surprise, which left the Teen Mom star in tears. “I was hoping you would come to visit and surprise Jade. I think it'd be really good for her. She needs a little release,” Sean said. Jade went on to call her friend her “soulmate,” explaining to Sean that the two pals have a “different type of love.”
