Flora Oosterhouse is the daughter of American actress Amy Smart and television personality Carter Oosterhouse. She was born on December 2016 and is 7 years old.
Ever since her birth, she has been a person of interest as the media’s searchlight has always been on her, watching her transition from a toddler to an infant. Here’s all we know about Flora.
Flora Oosterhouse Became Carter and Amy Smart’s Daughter Through a Surrogate Mother
Flora Oosterhouse was born sometime around December 2016 to Amy Smart and her husband Carter Oosterhouse by a surrogate mother. This came many years after they tried to get pregnant on their own without much luck. Talking about the ordeal she passed through in trying to make a baby or babies of her own, Amy revealed that it was a very difficult time for her and her spouse, but she is grateful now that she has a “beautiful and healthy daughter.”
Since the birth of their tot, the couple have been having the time of their lives, raising their baby up as best as they can. Flora Oosterhouse leaves with her parents in Los Angeles and often spends her summers in Traverse City, Michigan, the United States of America, where they have their abode in a 100-year-old farmhouse. Carter described Flora as an adventurous young child who isn’t scared of bugs, snakes, and the other typical things one encounters in a farmhouse.
Regarding her education, Flora Oosterhouse is said to be homeschooled by her parents, and it has been so ever since she came of schooling age. Her parents, on the other hand, attended conventional schools in their time. We know at least that Carter attended St. Francis High School and holds a bachelor’s degree in nutrition and communication, while Amy is an alumnus of Palisade High School.
Flora Oosterhouse’s Parents Married in 201147 years old Amy Lysle Smart, who was born on March 26, 1976, in Topanga, California, has been married to Carter Oosterhouse (47 years old, born on September 19, 1976 ) since September 10, 2011, which is about 12 years now.
Prior to their marriage in Traverse City, Michigan, Amy previously dated American actor Branden Williams from 1994 to 2010. Within this time frame, she reportedly hooked up with fellow actor Ashton Kutcher sometime in 2003, but nothing came out of their short dalliance. Carter is not known to have dated anyone or even married prior to meeting Amy.
Are Flora Oosterhouse’s Parents Still Together?
Ever since they got married in 2011, which is about 12 years now, the couple has been together waxing strong in their marriage. As earlier mentioned, they had struggled with having a child, which admittedly is one of the most difficult things they have had to deal with in their marriage.
But with the birth of Flora through a surrogate, the Oosterhouse family is now very different from what it used to be, and it can only keep getting better from this point. The couple has also done well to avoid having any damning marital issues they have (if at all) spill into the public.
As much as there is no report yet on this aspect of their married life, and perhaps never will be, it is believed they are having the time of their lives and doing all they can to give their daughter Flora the best life she can ever have.
Does Flora Oosterhouse Have Siblings?
No, for now, Flora Oosterhouse is the only child there is between Amy Smart and Carter Oosterhouse, and it has been exactly 7 years after they had her through a surrogate. Considering the challenges Amy had trying to conceive on her own fruitlessly, and the joy the birth of Flora brought to their family, fans assume that the couple will most likely have another baby.
However, when his baby will come, the gender and how the baby will be born are not yet known. It is solely the decision of the Oosterhouses to make. Regardless of how long we might have to wait for this miracle to happen, it will be a joy to see the ever bubbly Flora Oosterhouse cradle her young sibling/s now that she has come of age. Maybe, we might not have to wait too long for this to happen as Flora is already 7!
Flora Oosterhouse’s Likely Career Interest
Though Flora Oosterhouse is still young to begin actively pursuing a career, for now, it is hoped she will excel in any profession she chooses to go into, seeing that she is being raised by parents who are remarkably successful in their professional lives.
Flora’s mother, Amy Smart, started off as a model but is now noted as one of the very best female actresses in America. Her portfolio of acting works boasts of lead roles in films like The Butterfly Effect (2004), Just Friends (2005), The Single Moms Club (2014), and others. Her father, Carter Oosterhouse, on the other hand, also started off as a model but got remarkably famous as a television personality who starred in Trading Spaces, Carter Can, Red Hot & Green, and Million Dollar Rooms in 2008.
Flora Oosterhouse’s Social Media Presence
Flora Oosterhouse is not active on any social media platform however it is not hard to find her on social media, especially on Instagram. The celebrity kid is often seen in her parent’s pictures and video uploads as they share happy family moments together. Her mother’s verified Instagram handle is smarthouse26, while that of her father is carterooster.
Perhaps when Flora comes of age, she will have her own social media account and grow a fan following, possibly more than her parents already have. From her pictures which can be seen on Instagram, it is apparent that the young girl is a beauty and knows just how best to pose for a photo at the right moment. Maybe she is a model in the making, and don’t forget that her parents started off their professional lives as models before venturing into other things.
