It appears that the rather bumpy marriage between former Unexpected couple Tylor Strawmyer and Laura Barron is coming to an end as Tylor officially filed for divorce earlier this month.
According to court records, Tylor filed for divorce on May 3. The case is still in the early stages, with the first hearing scheduled for July 12 via Zoom.
The divorce filing comes a little less than three years after Laura and Tylor secretly married in July of 2018. Since that time, the couple’s relationship was quite a roller coaster. Tylor joined the Navy, and the family later relocated to California where he was stationed.
Meanwhile, Laura welcomed the couple’s second child, son Leo, in October of 2019. Laura announced a third pregnancy in May of 2020, but she suffered a miscarriage a few months later. Within a month of sharing information about her miscarriage, it was revealed that the couple had split.
Laura and Tylor reconciled late last year, despite Tylor reportedly getting a woman in California pregnant. However, the reconciliation obviously didn’t last.

We’ve covered Tylor and Laura rather extensively over the past few years, and I’ve put together a rough timeline of their relationship (and other) drama since their appearance on Unexpected Season 2.
I have stated numerous times that I was disappointed that TLC didn’t continue to document the couple on additional seasons. Initially, that was because they appeared to be the only mom and dad on the show working towards a happy ending together. Plus, I was really curious what the military life was like for a young family. I am still very disappointed that Laura and Tylor were not on additional seasons, but now it’s because of how much over-the-top drama they would have brought to the screen!
OK, on with the timeline…
Unexpected dad Tylor Strawmyer has inspired A LOT of conversations among viewers this season! In addition to openly considering a career as a male stripper (in front of Laura’s very Christian parents, no less), Tylor was also called out by Laura for cheating. Tylor has tackled all of these topics on social media, as well as explaining how he got those bald patches in his hair — and revealing that he has joined the Navy!?
