1000-Lb Sisters' Amy Slaton-Halterman Says Her Son Slept Through This Major Milestone

For three seasons on TLC, "1000-Lb Sisters" kept viewers entertained as it followed Tammy Slaton and Amy Slaton Halterman. The feisty Kentucky sisters were determined to lose enough weight to be approved for life-changing weight loss surgery

But it soon became clear that this series might not have a happily-ever-after ending. Although Amy successfully underwent the procedure, Tammy struggled with a lack of mobility and motivation, along with mental health issues that led her to make unhealthy choices in both her lifestyle and relationships. 

The finale of Season 3 saw Tammy entering a weight loss facility and then rushed to the hospital a day later with breathing issues (via The U.S. Sun). It was touch-and-go for nearly a week, but Tammy finally rallied.

Fans hoping for a fourth season, however, may be disappointed. Tammy is still in the rehab facility; although she has lost weight, she has a tracheotomy tube that keeps her from speaking. 

Meanwhile, Amy said she may be quitting the show. In addition to the demands of being a mom of a toddler son, she is currently pregnant with her second child. She told The U.S. Sun, "I feel like I'm being a bad mom when I'm at work. I don't really want to do another season, because I'm pregnant. It's just a lot."

For now, the sisters are keeping their followers up-to-date through their social media accounts. Amy tracks the growth of her baby-on-the-way (she's expecting another boy) and captures adorable moments with her son, Gage. One recent milestone has her fans positively melting.

Amy Slaton-Halterman's son got his first haircut

Amy Slaton-Halterman's 17-month-old son, Gage Deon Halterman, is getting bigger and cuter by the day. Amy regularly reports on his growth and adventures through her Instagram and YouTube accounts. 

Sometimes, she even answers fans' questions, like when one asked whether Gage is talking yet. "[He's] been talking since he was 4 mo. The other day he told me to go away lol," Amy responded.

On April 19, 2022, Gage underwent a big rite of passage when he went for his first haircut. His hair started to get longer only recently, Amy says, and he also has a stubborn cowlick that keeps popping up "two seconds after I brush it," she said.

Amy captured the moment in a short video that shows her son being held by dad Mike Halterman as the stylist expertly snips his locks. In fact, Gage sleeps most of the way through the cut. 

"If only most of the little kids were like this!" says the hairdresser. Only when the cut is almost over does Gage wake up; he gets a little squirmy at the last couple of snips and the blow dryer, but he takes it like a champ. "Yay! You're such a big boy!" Amy cheers.

Amy posted the above pictures on Instagram. "Gage got his 1st hair cut," she wrote. "He did sleep through most of it. But I'm still very proud." Her comments section quickly exploded with comments like, "So cute!"
