Doug Hutchison And Courtney Stodden Are “Engaged” Again!

Courtney and Doug

Straight from the Couples Therapy reunion, Courtney Stodden announced that she’s engaged, with a twist. You see, her new man is her old man. No pun intended. Courtney is “engaged” to her estranged husband Doug Hutchison.

In other words, Courtney, 19, and Doug, 54, never finalized their divorce, and now they have rekindled their relationship and plan to renew their vows later this year. If this news does not give you the warm fuzzies, I don’t know what will. 


Last fall, Courtney played Celebrity Big Brother and walked away from the experience with an unfamiliar sense of independence. Shortly after, Courtney and Doug announced that they were separating after three years of marriage.

“I feel like a little girl again,” Courtney shared in November. “I’m just taking the time to be me and be single and be 19 and to try to be as much as a normal 19 year old as I possibly can.” She insisted the separation wasn’t a publicity stunt – and maybe it wasn’t – but they’re madly in love again immediately after taping the Couples Therapy reunion? Mmmkay.

About her daughter’s reconciliation, momager Krista Keller said Courtney got to “experience other men” but ultimately “wanted to be with her original choice, her husband.” Ugh!! I am just as repulsed by this “mother” today as I was three years ago when she signed her 16-year-old child over to 51-year-old Doug.

“When I signed that [marriage certificate]… I think moms sometimes know their daughters and I’m very very happy for them that she’s made this choice again for herself,” continued Krista. “Courtney realized just how much love she really had for Doug. They really love each other and wanted to be together.”

Speaking to Fishwrapper, Courtney said, “Doug and I have been through so much together, but somehow through it all, it brought us closer and confirmed my love for him.” For Doug. For Doug’s checkbook. Same difference. “My love and respect for Courtney is timeless,” added Doug. “I look forward to our future ceremony when we renew our vows.”

Courtney gushed, “We are very happy to be reunited.” Feeling brave? Check out these pics of Courtney and Doug’s reunion.
