It’s shocking, but true:
Tammy Slaton is a married woman!
The 1,000-pound Sisters star checked into rehab a few months ago after a medical crisis that left her in a coma … shared a few selfies on social media … and then BOOM!
She went ahead and married a man named Caleb Willingham, whom she met at this rehab facility.
It was an unexpected development, but it seems to be a happy one so far for the reality TV veteran.
“You all knew me as Tammy Slaton, but now you’ll all know me as Mrs. Tammy Willingham,” Tammy told People magazine after exchanging vows.
Then she emphasized: “Now I’m married!”
A few weeks before the wedding ceremony, which took place outside the aforementioned health center in Ohio, Caleb proposed to Tammy in the parking lot of the same building.
While TLC viewers expressed their pleasant surprise online at Tammy’s big news, many also asked:
Wait, who is Caleb Willingham?!?
We don’t know much about him.
As mentioned above, Caleb is a patient at the same weight loss treatment center that Tammy currently lives at in Ohio, and he met Slaton after entering the facility for her food addiction in November 2021.
It is unclear how much time Caleb spent in the facility; or when he is expected to leave.
Now that the couple is married, Caleb plans to move with Tammy to Kentucky once they are cleared to leave rehab.
From what we understand, fans will get to know Caleb a lot more — as well as get a behind-the-scenes look at his romance with Tammy — in Season 4 of 1,000 Pound Sisters.
Earlier this month, TLC announced that the popular series will indeed return in 2023 with new episodes.
1,000 Pounds Sisters Season 4 premieres Tuesday, January 17th at 9:00 PM EST.
Along with confirming this return, the aforementioned cable network also released an official synopsis for the upcoming installments.
It reads as follows:
Tammy makes a “life-changing decision” after having a near-death experience.
Amy, who is expecting her second child, doesn’t know how being an overweight mother will work, while Chris is desperate to qualify for skin removal surgery.
Meanwhile, the executives also took to Instagram on November 20 to congratulate the newlyweds on their nuptials, teasing that the nuptials will be featured on the program next year.
“Congratulations! Tammy Slaton tied the knot with beau Caleb Willingham,” reads the caption next to photos of the couple on their special day.
