TEEN Mom star Chelsea Houska shared a not-so-cryptic post that stated "I respect myself enough to walk away" just days after quitting the show.
The reality star, 29, who first hit our screens on MTV's 16 & Pregnant back in 2010, announced the news during a virtual zoom reunion last week.
Chelsea, who is currently pregnant with her fourth child, admitted that the time felt right to start a new chapter in her life with husband Cole DeBoer and their three kids Aubree, 11, Watson, three and two-year-old Layne.
The reality star confirmed her feelings by sharing one of her daily affirmations on Instagram, which stated: "I respect myself enough to walk away from situations that no longer bring me peace.
"I love myself enough to stand up for myself when it is needed. I deserve love, compassion, and respect.
"I happily walk away from situations that are not healthy for me. It is okay to move on from people who are not good for me."
Last Tuesday, she shared the shocking news with the reunion show host Dr. Drew and co-stars Kailyn Lowry, Leah Messer, Briana DeJesus and Jade Cline.
She told them: "I feel like, just watching this last season, I was getting a bad feeling in my stomach.
"It just feels like it's just time to close the chapter. And I'm almost 30, I'm having my fourth baby — it just feels like the right time."
Viewers were left gutted when the season 10 finale showed Chelsea and Cole confirm their departure during an emotional chat, where they agreed it was in her daughter Aubree's best interest.
She told her husband: "It’s not an easy thing because I’ve been doing this since I was 17.
"I have a lot to think about. I’m not going to say anything to the kids until we make the actual decision."
The news left many fans devastated and some even claimed that following the news, the MTV reality series would be "canceled."
At just 17-years-old, Chelsea hit our screens as one of the cast of 16 & Pregnant and has been on the show ever since.
The show followed Chelsea's journey into motherhood as she welcomed her first child Aubree – who she shares with ex Adam Lind, 31 – into the world.
However, the pair had a turbulent relationship and soon split, but managed found love again with Cole after bumping into each other at a gas station.
The pair got engaged in 2015, went on to get married a year later and share two children together – Watson and Layne – and have another on the way.
