'Teen Mom' Chelsea Houska's Daughter Is About to Become a Big Sister & She Deserves to Know

chelsea houskaTeen Mom Chelsea Houska has a big problem -- the 21-year-old reality star needs to talk to her 3-year-old daughter Aubree about the little sister on the way but, apparently, doesn't know how. Adam Lind, Chelsea's ex and father of Aubree, is expecting a daughter with girlfriend Taylor Halbur. Due late August, it's only a matter of months now until Aubree's a big sister, but the adorable toddler is still none the wiser. Neither Chelsea nor Adam has explained that she's about to have a sister.

A source told RadarOnline it's because Chelsea doesn't know what the right move is. She doesn't want to tell Aubree because she's afraid of how she'll react, and at the same time, she kind of feels like it's Adam's place to spill the beans.

I can see it from both sides, but Chels and Adam should probably just sit down with Aubree with one of those "I'm going to be a big sister"-type of books and get this taken care of. Ostensibly it should be good news -- don't Chelsea and Adam both want Aubree to have a relationship with her younger sister?

The sooner Aubree finds out, the better. Preparing her for this life-changing role shouldn't be put off too much longer, because before you know it, the new baby will be here and Aubree will be confused as hell.

Not that Adam spends soooooo much time with her that she'll notice he's being pulled in another direction, but still. Sisters are sisters, and they should know about one another.

How did you break the news to your child that another was on the way?

It IS Adams place to spill the beans. It's not her baby nor her job.

I agree with LostSoul88. My parents are divorced and when each of my siblings came along, the parent who was having the child sat me down with their spouse. Seems like the right way to do it.

Honestly - this just further proves how ridiculous Adam is as a "parent". He wants to play family with Aubree and be around for the fun things - but when it comes time to actually be a parent, it's all on Chelsea. Chelsea didn't make a child with another person, it's not her responsibility to inform Aubree that her father is having a child with someone else. Aubree might have questions, innocent kid questions, but still questions. Adam should be the one answering those, not Chelsea.

Aubree is 3 and it's not her Mother's child. She spends little time with Adam so yes even though she has a half sister it's not like they will be living together. And like lostsoul said, it's Adam's job to tell her. I was 3 when my mom brought my sister home from the hospital and I don't remember having a conversation with my mom about it.

It's Adam's responsibility. I'm happily married, but have always informed my kids early on about siblings. So they have time to let it sink in, ask questions, etc.

I think adam needs to keep it in his pants he don't give a crap about aubree or he would at least try to make it work with Chelsea. but hes off running around knocking up all the girls hes with I feel bad for Chelsea she has to deal with a loser like him.

I absolutely agree, it's Adams job. All three of mine are with the same guy, when baby number 2 came, I was scared to tell my oldest who was 2 but I sat her down and told her Mommy and Daddy are having another baby, she is my biggest support in everything, then when I had baby number 3, it was easier to tell my oldest but it was just as easy to tell my second, considering she was always around babies, I have 12 nieces and nephews, then when my third was born, they asked me if I could hurry up and give them a brother, I have all girls and no plans for another anytime soon.

Just sit her down and tell her period cause it will hurt her if you guys don't tell her before the new baby come

I let my daughter know after the doctor confirmed I was pregnant and included her in everything to make sure she was not left out. If Adam and his girlfriend are not going to tell her then Chelsea needs to. I have had to tell my kids a lot of things that their father should have but didn't! That's part of being a mom and a single mom!
