"You all knew me as Tammy Slaton, but now you'll all know me as Mrs. Tammy Willingham," she announced.
The 1000-Lb. Sisters star Tammy Slaton is now married. The 36-year-old tied the knot with Caleb Willingham at Windsor Lane Rehabilitation Center in Gibsonburg, Ohio, according to People. The reality television star met her husband in the rehab center and fell in love with him in the same place. Announcing the big news of her wedding, Tammy said: "You all knew me as Tammy Slaton, but now you'll all know me as Mrs. Tammy Willingham. I'm married now!"
Speaking to The Sun, a source close to Tammy said: "She began dating Caleb in rehab, and I'm so happy they met in person and were not dating online." The wedding took place in the presence of 30 friends and family members, in an intimate and small function, a TLC source revealed. The duo has been together for quite some time and Caleb proposed to his then-girlfriend Tammy in late October. The two reportedly also shared a strong bond in the rehab clinic where they proved to be a "huge support" for each other.
"They have a lot of the same struggles that they can share. They've been a huge support for each other [in rehab], which is awesome," the insider said. After their wedding, Caleb plans to move to Kentucky and be with his newlywed wife.
The wedding clip and documentary will reportedly air on television in Tammy’s new season of the TLC series. The season is expected to premiere on January 17 at 9 p.m. local time. Tammy's previous relationships are no stories of mystery to be unraveled to her followers as they've all been well documented on the show. Her previous relationship with partner Philip, according to her sister Amy, was not healthy for her in many aspects.
"Tammy told me she broke up with Phil, and I'm like, about damn time. Now you need to work on yourself. Tammy don't need somebody that wants her to be a glutton," Amy said on the show.
After her split from Phillip, Tammy shared that the "door's always open" to talk to potential partners as she discussed moving on and being free to date again. "I don't talk to as many people as I used to. I am trying to be more careful," she said. "But every day, I get a comment like, 'Hey baby, you cute. [I] wanna take you out.'" Ultimately, Tammy’s stars aligned and she came across Caleb and believed he was the one for her.
