America’s favorite family is back for an all-new season. OutDaughtered follows the lives of parents Danielle, 34, and Adam Busby, 36, raising their 4-year-old quintuplet girls (Ava, Olivia, Hazel, Riley, and Parker) and 7-year-old daughter Blayke. Basically, they have a very busy household.
Raising a family of eight definitely comes with its challenges, but luckily the Busby clan has some help. Danielle’s mom Michelle “Mimi” Theriot has become a staple on the show for her feisty attitude. The dedicated grandma moved from Louisiana to Houston to be closer to her daughter after she gave birth to the quints. Sadly, Mimi lost her new house in Texas.
So, what happened to OutDaughtered star Mimi?
Last year, fans watched how the devastation from Hurricane Harvey affected the Busby family. Mimi’s home was completely destroyed after the natural disaster, which forced the TV grandma to move in with her daughter and son-in-law.
Honoring those who helped her during this tragedy, Mimi shared a photo of the devastation, captioning the 2018 post: “I could never say THANK YOU enough to so many that GATHERED around me during the tragic event of Harvey.”
She continued, “I have had so many tears in the last year trying to start a NEW [sic]. This tragic event brought so many lives together for GOOD. So my memories of hurts have been overcome with all the LOVE and SUPPORT from SO MANY. THANK YOU AGAIN.”
Though she is thankful for being able to live with her family when she was displaced from her home, Mimi tearfully admitted during last season that she did not want to live with the couple forever.
“It’s not healthy for me to be living there,” she told cameras. The grandma shocked fans when she confessed, “It’s sad. I’m surrounded by so many people that love me but, actually, I’ve never felt more alone.”
Currently, Mimi is seemingly doing well! Last year, the reality star shared the news with her fans that she received her real estate license. We can’t wait to watch more of Mimi’s storyline this season.
OutDaughtered star Adam Busby addresses divorce rumors.
Reality TV couples certainly do not have a good track record when it comes to staying together (e.g. Kate and John Gosselin, Amy and Matt Roloff, and “Mama June” Shannon and Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson). Though Danielle and Adam seem like the perfect couple, the father of six previously opened up about the strain on his marriage.
“You get through half the week and you realize you’ve barely told your wife ‘hi’ because you’re just so busy. And then by the time all the girls are down to sleep, you’ve got to clean up the kitchen, wash dishes. You’re just exhausted and done,” he said during a 2017 episode. Adding, “It’s caused some issues between me and Danielle, just because sometimes I want to check out.”
The father has been open about his mental health issues, telling People that he suffered with postpartum depression after the birth of his quintuplets.
"After coming face to face with postpartum depression following the birth of our five daughters, I quickly learned that this is a very real struggle that dads all around the world go through, yet you rarely ever hear it talked about,” he previously confessed.
He hopes that by opening up about his own health struggles that he can help other men become more comfortable with expressing their feelings.
