The couple married when Stodden was only 16 years old and a virgin, and the news sent Hollywood into shock when they walked down the aisle in 2011. The pair then decided to part ways last November, but it appears they just can’t keep away from each other anymore and even have plans to renew their wedding vows.
“Courtney realized just how much love she really had for Doug,” her mother and manager Krista Keller told FOX411. “They really love each other and wanted to be together.”
The couple previously cited their age difference as the reason for their separation, but that no longer seems to bother them.
“After Courtney experienced being in Celebrity Big Brother in the UK she realized that there is this whole world out there to explore,” a source told Us Weekly at the time. “She was so reliant on Doug up until doing the show, but after going so far away, she realized she could survive by herself.”
And according to the 19-year-old star’s mom, she has now had time to “experience other men” during their break and she now “want[s] to be with her original choice, her husband.”
Stodden’s mother also expressed her happiness about her daughter’s renewed romance with the Lost actor.
“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,” Keller said.
