When you agree to go on The Bachelor as a contestant, you give up a lot of things, including your privacy, but mostly your time. If you end up making it far, it’s like a catch-22. You’re closer to falling in love with a potential husband, but your life is put on hold. For contestant Chelsea Roy that’s probably even harder for her to do, since she’s also a mom. And Chelsea’s Instagram before The Bachelor shows how important being a mom is to her and how big of a role her young son plays in her life. Spoiler alert: it’s obviously the biggest role of everyone, and Chelsea’s Instagram photos and videos show their very strong bond.
Before she even auditioned to be one of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s potential suitorettes on The Bachelor Season 22, Chelsea was home in Portland, Maine, where she works as a real estate executive assistant and lives with her three-year-old son, Sam. Although there’s no mention of her son’s father on her Instagram, if you go way back in her photo history, you can see that they were together before Sam was born and on his own Instagram account, which is private, his main photo is of himself with Sam on his shoulders, so he does seem to be in the little boy’s life. But since the parents are clearly split up, it looks like Chelsea’s life revolves around her son, and rightfully so. He could basically be a toddler model.
