          A Teen in Turmoil 

          Giesel and Steve say their 18-year-old daughter, Devynn, has an unhealthy relationship with her boyfriend, and their tumultuous union has caused a rift in their family. The teen admits that she and her boyfriend argue a lot, and she recently dropped a bombshell on her parents: she’s pregnant and wants to keep the baby.


          “Devynn chose her boyfriend over her mom and dad.”
