It’s stunning, but true:

Tammy Slaton is a married woman!

The 1,000-lb Sisters star checked into rehab several months ago after a medical crisis that landed her in a coma… shared a handful of selfie on social media… and then BOOM!

She went ahead and married someone named Caleb Willingham, who she met inside of this rehab facility.

It was an unexpected development, but it seems to be a joyous one thus far for the veteran reality star.

“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.

She then emphasized: “I’m married now!”

A few weeks before the wedding ceremony, which took place outside of the aforementioned wellness center in Ohio, Caleb proposed to Tammy in the same building’s parking lot.

While TLC viewers have been expressing their pleasant surprise online over Tammy’s major news, many have also been asking:

Wait, who the heck is Caleb Willingham?!?

We don’t know a whole lot about him.

As mentioned above, Caleb is a patient at the same weight loss treatment center that Tammy is currently living at in Ohio and he met Slaton after entered the facility for her food addiction in November 2021.

It’s not clear how much time Caleb has spent at the facility; or when he’s expected to leave.

Now that the pair are husband and wife, Caleb reportedly plans to move to Kentucky with Tammy when they are cleared to depart from the rehab facility.

From what we understand, fans will get to know Caleb a lot more — while also going behind the scenes of his romance with Tammy — on Season 4 of 1,000-lb Sisters.

TLC announced earlier this month that the popular series will, indeed, return in 2023 with new episodes.
