Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison, who recently reconciled after separating in 2013, are destined to be together, according to her mom Krista Keller.
The infamous couple, who got married in 2011 when Stodden was 16 and Hutchison was 51, had been legally separated for nearly nine months.
Now, with Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison engaged a second time, her mom is speaking out about why they split, and what brought them back.
“It was probably hard for Doug at times, [Courtney] still working with him, knowing that she’s dating other people and that type of thing,” Keller said.
But, if you love somebody, set them free, right? “Just recently, they just both really realized what they want is each other, they want to be together.”
Stodden, now 19, decided to try out single life after discovering some independence during her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in 2013.
“She kind of was exploring being 19," says Keller, who is also the model's manager, "and just being alone and exploring the life of a 19 year old."
