Go with the flow! Teen MomStars Cheyenne Floyd Cory Wharton are known for their copacetic coparenting skills — and they’re relying on each other even more now that they each recently had children with their respective partners.
“We check in and we adapt,” the Teen Mom: The Next Chapterstar, 29 exclusively tells Us WeeklyHer current coparenting dynamics with Wharton, 31-year-old with whom Ryder is 5-years old,
“We truly have to rely on each other sometimes because there’s days where I’m like, ‘I can’t do this. Like, I’m, I’m wiped out. You gotta meet me somewhere and get Ry,’” she laughs. “’And there’s days where he’s like, ‘Hey, I know it’s not my day.’ Or you know, we adapt to each other and we’re going through a lot right now. … We rely on each other.”
Floyd and Wharton have a lot to do when it comes down to their blended family. The California native and fiancé Zach DavisTheir first child, Ace, was born in May 2021. Wharton and his girlfriend were married one year later in June 2021. Taylor SelfridgeMaya, their second child, was welcomed into their home. The ChallengeStar and his longtime girlfriend, 28, have a 2-year-old daughter Mila.
Floyd can’t help but gush over baby Maya, telling Use that the little girl is “absolutely beautiful.”
“Ryder has truly taken on the role of, like, the ultimate big sister,” the Teen Mom: Family ReunionThe alum speaks highly of her daughter. “She loves being a big sister to all of her siblings.”
While Floyd and Wharton have had their ups and downs over the years, as all coparents do, they always come together when it concerns Ryder — and any of her health concerns.
Ryder is diagnosed with VLCAD (“very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency”) which means “she can’t process fatty foods into energy,” Wharton explained to UseDecember 2017. The coparents have put on a united front during Ryder’s hospital visits, the most recent of which was in February. In addition to dealing with Ryder’s condition, Wharton’s newborn also has a health concern of her own: a heart defect known as tricuspid atresia, for which she will have to receive multiple operations throughout childhood.
Floyd and Wharton ultimately see their little girl as the most important.
“As long as we’re communicating and Ryder’s happy, that’s all we really care about,” Floyd told UseJanuary. “That’s very evident. Ryder lives her best life. She’s fine, so we’re fine.”
