2 min

1000-lb Sisters star Amy Slaton Halterman welcomed the new year with some exciting news. The TLC star recently announced that she and her husband, Michael Halterman, are expecting their second child.

The happy news came a year after the couple welcomed their son, Gage. Since the adorable boy's arrival, Amy has embraced everything about motherhood.

However, the joys of new motherhood don't come without challenges. With hoarding histories and weight worries, will things get easier for the  1000-lb Sisters star this time around?

Amy and Michael Halterman tied the knot in 2019, but a baby certainly wasn't in their plan. Though Amy shared dreams of motherhood, she was on a weight loss journey with her sister, Tammy. Both sisters had to lose enough weight to qualify for bariatric surgery. 

Bariatric surgery alters the digestive system as a long-term solution for weight loss. While Amy succeeded in shedding enough pounds to qualify, the 1000-lb Sisters star was warned not to get pregnant for at least two years.

But an unexpected blessing came four months after. Amy Slaton got pregnant with her and Michael's first child, Gage. While there were struggles with her pregnancy, she delivered a healthy baby boy safely.

Since then, she's been doing her best to become a good mom to Gage. The 1000-lb Sisters celeb made some changes in her life. For instance, Amy Slaton and her husband have been giving more attention to home organization and basic home hygiene.

The couple is also preparing to move into a larger space. It is perfect timing as they will soon have a new member in their family.
