True Life Update Is Robert Still Wearing Diapers
MTV's ' True Life : I'm An Adult Baby' followed three people who wear diapers, suck on pacifiers, drink from sippy cups and much more. We had an opportunity to check in with Robert, Mathilda and Mitchell to see how their lives have changed since filming wrapped. Take a look at our follow-up Q&A below:
Are you still living with Daddy Lee and Xander?
I'm currently in Tennessee getting some loose ends tied up. Me and Daddy have been seeing each other quite a bit lately. Xander is unfortunately not part of the picture anymore.
How is your relationship with Daddy Lee going?
We are doing great and are very happy and talking about where we want to move to when Daddy gets done with school.
Are you happy living as a full-time adult baby?
I am happier than I have been in a long time.
How is your stuffed animal George?
George is doing great. I just recently got [something] from Build A Bear, and he was worried that I would forget about him. But he found out that I still loved him and couldn't forget about him even if I tried. By the way, George says hi [laughs].
What does your family think about you moving to Kentucky?
My family wasn't thrilled with me going to Kentucky, but they didn't make a huge deal about it. They were worried about me, but they know I can do anything I set my mind to.
What is your life like now?
I have lots of friends in Kentucky and am so happy. I was a housekeeper at Wilderness at the Smokies, but I decided to take a break and I am currently doing tree work for different people in the community.
Are you still hanging out/dating Matthew?
Yes, I am. We see each other, just not as often because of my crazy schedule. He's a goofball and always down to have fun. It is nice to have someone I can be my proud, wild little self around.
Do you think your relationship with Matthew will progress beyond what it was the last time we saw you?
I really can't say. I am at a point in my life where I am defining what the different levels of a relationship mean to me. I do know that I am just not one of those people who can invest a grand amount of emotion and time into only one person, and that is a direct result of recent events in my life. The immature idea of a 'happily ever after' has been replaced with a drilling and urgent sense to find a lasting/safe home and family.
How are things going with your family these days? Have you made plans for the holidays?
I speak to a small amount of members. They support me and love me the best way they know how. I do not have plans for the holidays, I have been told I am not welcome or wanted back in California. The idea of making plans is one of the few things these days that gives me the blues, but I am not short of offers from people in my ABDL community who are close to me and know that the holidays might be difficult.
Have you sought out any counseling for the childhood abuse you suffered?
Yes, Portland has a wonderful system of sliding-scale counseling for people like me. I have a long road ahead of me -- there is a decent amount of fear and guilt I struggle with, and I still have to accept that I cannot change my past. I hope that one day I can learn to not be so hard on myself. It is a very hard lesson to teach on my own, especially because I feel I lack the benefit of having elders around to guide me. Counselors can only help so much -- they are only human, after all. I'm doing a good job of being self-aware and living every day with intention instead of dwelling in the past.
How is your marriage with Erica going?
Things with me and Erica are going okay. I can't say there was a major change, but I have a secret fear that once it becomes public, at some point she will resent me for having her on camera. It's true that things are not 100% -- she has even admitted having problems giving me what I am looking for. I always hope we will be able to make things work, and as I said, as long as there is love, there is hope. Overall, I can say that putting me in a diaper which once was the strangest thing imaginable is something that becomes perfectly normal -- as strange as that may sound!
Have you and Erica thought about starting a family? How would that work since you are the baby in the relationship?
My wife does have a weight problem. We have been to a fertility specialist and are working toward having at least one child together. If/when we do, it is critical that everyone understands that I would be a loving, protective, supportive father. Heck, I am already a diaper expert! I am sickened but I feel I must address that once again, I am not a pedophile and would be nothing short of apropriate with my own child, and if I have a girl, I will definitely be the overprotective father that needs to keep his princess safe. Of course, if I had a boy I'd probably be giving him high fives. Cause... you know. On that topic, I would be keeping my little/baby site a secret from my child, although this will obviously prove difficult at some point. I suppose I may feel jealous? But then again, maybe not. Children are a blessing, and an adorable one. They deserve to be loved and cared for.
Are you still making YouTube videos?
I am, but it's a struggle to make them (regularly) and continue my job at the factory. Also money does cause an issue -- like, I want to use a gas-powered leaf blower to blast flour into Jesse's face, but I'd need to buy one for 0 (or travel ridiculously far to rent one.) Oh by the way -- don't tell Jesse. He'll find out when I knock on his door. I plan to do that wearing nothing but a diaper, just to make it more insulting. I just did a few video game live stream videos as a test on my channel, but I do not feel it's going over well enough to continue it.
