The TLC stars' estranged relationship with Ethan's parents is explored on Welcome to Plathville. In a November 2020 episode, Ethan revealed that they have a "no contact" rule with his folks since they "needed space as a couple."

Olivia, for her part, spoke to PEOPLE last December about going to therapy after recognizing she "was not in a healthy place" and "needed to work through things" from her childhood. The reality star additionally noted that she doesn't want to start a family with Ethan until they both process their respective pasts.

"I also know that in many ways, we're not ready for kids," she said at the time. "We need to heal and process our own childhoods before we bring another child into the world."
