UPDATE – The Sun US spoke with Sean’s mother, Mary Hobbs, who confirms Sean died in an ATV accident on Wednesday. Mary’s comments from The Sun:

‘I was with him when it happened. He was just moving [the ATV] from one parking spot to the next for me, so I could back into park,’ she recounted.

‘He pulled [in] front of me to park the ATV and the ground gave way from all the rain and mud.’

She went on to say that the ATV flipped and ‘crushed’ his skull.

Sean and Selena welcomed their daughter Dareli Marie Gutierrez on October 7, 2020. For those 16 and Pregnant fans looking for a refresher on Selena and Sean’s story, here is their intro clip from MTV:

Selena and Sean have a second child together

Selena Gutierrez gave birth to another girl named Esmi in June of 2022. It came as a bit of a surprise to many of her followers when it was later revealed that Sean was was the father of her second child as well.

Selena and Sean had a HUGE fight in May of 2021. Selena’s family got involved, and Selena wound up getting arrested at one point.

It was assumed by many of Selena’s followers that the relationship was not salvageable. That was apparently not the case.

As evidenced by the fact that Sean was in North Carolina and Selena was in Colorado at the time of his passing, Selena and Sean were not together when he died.
