Nicole Curtis has been open about being a single mom while on the show. She became pregnant with her 23-year-old son Ethan when she was 20 years old, whom she had with her ex-husband Steve Lane. Nicole Curtis' son, Ethan, 22, made a heartfelt statement at the premiere of his mother's new show, Rehab Addict Rescue. The two first met after Nicole began following Ryan's Instagram posts about Arden, her 8-year-old niece who was fighting diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a very aggressive brain tumor found mostly in children.
Unfortunately, Arden passed away and that's when Nicole contacted to see if there was anything she could do to help the family. At present, Nicole does not have any daughters. However, she is often asked about Tessa. Tessa was the niece of her current boyfriend.
She was nine years old when she lost her life to diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, a very aggressive brain tumor found mainly in children. From her humble career beginnings, which saw Nicole Curtis balancing multiple jobs, including waitressing at Hooters, to two tumultuous custody battles (the second of which almost landed her in jail) and family drama that reached a telenovela-worthy level when Curtis's own mother tried to present a restraining order against her, it is evident that the Nicole Curtis fans know and love from Rehab Addict is not the same Nicole Curtis that can be found off-camera.
