A star is born… well about to be!
“It's very exciting and we can't wait for the new addition to our family," he exclusively told OK!. "We are thankful for everyone’s support.”
Apodaca has daughters Angelia, 16, and MaKyla, 13, from a previous relationship, while Chavez has a 16-year-old son Andres from a previous partner.
2020 was a rough year for a lot of people as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic wreaked havoc on the nation, but 38-year-old Apodaca was a bright light in a dark world.
He shot to viral fame overnight after a video of him longboarding, drinking cranberry juice and listening to Fleetwood Mac’s smash hit “Dreams” made its way around the web.
Fans found old tweets of the indie-hero from when he was homeless and living in a WalMart parking lot, prompting them to flood his PayPal with donations to get him back on his feet.
After seeing the viral clip, Ocean Spray bought Apodaca a truck, he proposed to his then-girlfriend, bought a house and the rest is history.
As to why he decided to join TikTok, Apodaca explained that his youngest daughter convinced him to join the social media platform.
“I had seen her doing videos and she always asked me to join. I thought, ‘No way I’m going to do that.’ But once, I saw her doing a dance video and I knew I could do that,” he told The Daily Beast, adding he started to film videos with his daughter before she coerced him into creating his own account.
“She made me an account and everything. After that, I did the ‘Get Up’ dance. I just jumped on that train and did that trend," he said. "That did 1.2 million views in two days. It was my first viral video ever.”
