Ethan’s wife shared multiple snapshots that she took with the rebel daughter of the Plath parents.

In one of the snaps, the Welcome to Plathville stars were spotted near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. 

In another snap, the duo posed together while standing next to a helicopter. 

In the caption of the photos, Olivia mentioned she had met Moriah about “seven years ago.”

She continued: “You’ve added sparkle to my life since day one. We don’t even have pictures together from the beginning, and maybe that’s good because the timid girls we were then are unrecognizable from the strong women we’ve become.

 “I’m proud of the voice you’ve found, and mountains you’ve conquered.” 

She promised the teenager that her “year 19” would be “a brand new chapter.”

The parents – Kim and Barry Plath – raised their kids with limited technology, no sugar, and on a fairly isolated farm under a pretty strict fundamentalist Christian lifestyle and belief system.

The official description of the TLC show reads that the kids “never had a soda, don’t know who Spider-Man or Tom Brady is and have never watched TV.”

However, Moriah was the “rebellious” one in the family, and by the time she became a teen, she started doing things her own way.

She then moved out of the family home with her brother Micah, 20.


The conservative parents struggled with their oldest son Ethan, 23, who is married to Olivia.

The parents didn’t agree with Olivia’s influence on their son and the other children, which led to their estrangement from them since the second season of the show. 

Ethan and Olivia became upset when Barry and Kim moved off their farm and into a home just minutes from the couple.

The Sun exclusively revealed that the young couple still own their Cairo, Georgia home. 

Back in 2018, according to property records, Ethan bought the home on April 4th for $109,000. 

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home is 1,475 square feet and sits on 0.72 acres of land. 

The kitchen features wood cabinets, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a kitchen island. 

Ethan even built the deck in the backyard and posted about the progress on social media. 


Recently, Olivia further discussed their marriage in a confessional.

She said: “Ethan and I are married right now but I feel like it’s just functioning, barely.

“We’re opposites, but is there a way to make it work? If there’s not, will we be happier apart?

The TLC star concluded: “I guess I’m just taking it one step at a time.”
