Teen Mom 2 star Jade Cline had a bit of a rough introduction to the world of Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBLs). After a difficult recovery last year, Cline is finally feeling better and ready to show off her hard-earned new bod.
Cline shared an image on social media of herself recently, posing in a skin-tight dress that shows off every inch she paid to improve. Fans are gushing over the new Jade, and she's looking happy and confident a year after the procedure.
A New Dress for a New Bod
In early 2021, Cline underwent a procedure known as a BBL. It's considered a risky surgery that removes fat from elsewhere on the body and injects it into the buttocks over the muscle. The result is the ability to sculp the butt into a rounder, fuller, more lifted shape.
But the procedure comes with a significant recovery and healing time. BBLs don't "fluff" and show their final shape until many months after surgery, so people who undergo Brazilian Butt Lifts often find themselves waiting not so patiently to see how it turned out.
When Cline received the procedure, she relied on her mom to go pick up her post-operative pain medication. Unfortunately, Cline's mom Christy has a knack for being more trouble for her daughter than support.
CELEB took a look at the pair's recent struggles; "On a recent episode of Teen Mom 2, fans watched Cline be devastated by the news that her mom would be going to jail. The pair have had a fraught relationship for years, and Smith's on-again, off-again romance with the courts seems to be part of the problem. As Smith struggles with substance abuse issues, she is unable to be there reliably for her daughter.
Last year after Cline's BBL surgery, things reached a fever pitch between the two as Smith was MIA in Cline's time of great need. According to Christy, she just couldn't see her daughter in pain - and was unable to locate at any pharmacy the pain medication her daughter was prescribed for post-operative recovery. But fans weren't buying it and took Cline's side when she explained that she felt abandoned. Cline ended up staying with costar and friend Briana DeJesus while she recovered. Cline says she just doesn't buy it and wants her mom to just get better."
Despite the difficult of recovering from major surgery without pain relief, Cline healed and waited for the chance to show off her results. The new images on social media are of a woman who looks confident, happy, and ready to take on the world.
Sean Austin is Back and Seems Better than Ever
In addition to a new bod, it seems as though Cline is also welcoming home a new baby daddy - kind of. Father of Cline's daughter Kloie, Sean Austin, has been in rehab for the past few months, trying to work on himself.
On the recent trailer of Teen Mom, Austin returned from rehab, and he looks great.
Per The Sun, "Jade was talking to her daughter, Kloie, and said, 'We're going to go see daddy.'
Sean walked out from behind a hallway and smiled at his daughter.
The 4-year-old ran over to her dad and yelled 'Daddy' before he picked her up and they both giggled.
Jade smiled on the couch as they embrace."
Austin was inspired to seek help after he held up the mirror of seeing himself on Teen Mom. The father of one says it was a bit of a wakeup call, because he thought he was fooling everyone. In fact, he was only fooling himself.
Making the decision to seek help before reaching rock bottom, and being forced to, is a good sign for his recovery. Now that he's back, he looks healthy and present - two things Kloie, and Cline, need from him.
With a new butt and a newly present baby daddy, Cline is at the top of her game these days.
