“Chelsea is truly so happy,” an insider tells RadarOnline.com of the 23-year-old Sioux Falls, South Dakota native, who graduated from beauty school in November and is now employed at the nearby Body Sculpting Day Spa. “She loves working at the salon. All those years of hard work have paid off.”
After saving money from her exciting new gig, the doting mother of Aubree, 4, purchased her very first home last month. “It’s a huge, modern four-bedroom house,” the insider says. “Aubree loves it because she can run around and play in the yard with the dogs.”
Luckily, her beloved father, Randy, lives nearby and makes frequent visits. “Randy is helping her to renovate some of the rooms,” adds the insider.
And though the troubled Lind, who recently split from his second baby mama, Taylor Halbur, is still insisting on more visitation time with Aubree, Houska has learned to simply roll her eyes at her ex’s immature antics. “She only talks to him when it comes to Aubree’s schedule,” the source explains. “She would never take him back.”
Besides, the single star is dipping her toes back into the dating scene. “She’s seeing someone, but she’s not rushing into anything. She’s taking it at a snail’s pace,” the source reveals. “She’s super private about it, but I can tell you he’s gorgeous!”
While Houska’s on the up and up, a few of her MTV costars are down in the dumps: Leah Messer is facing divorce talk, and pregnant Jenelle Evans is attempting to legally split from her troubled onetime husband, Courtland Rodgers.
