Samantha became pregnant with Krissy when she was 17 years old and gave birth to her when she was 18 years old. She was seen working seven days a week (possibly multiple jobs) to help provide for her daughter and the rest of the family.
Samantha appeared to be rather mature and responsible, except when she was fighting with her sister, Brooke. Then, she resorted to screaming, swearing and name-calling.
During snack time (with help from Jo, Samantha gives Krissy a warning not to use inappropriate words such as "Shut your mouth before I slap you," or else, she will sit Krissy on the Naughty Step for two minutes. Krissy does what Samantha tells her to do and stops the bad behavior.
She is currently 28 years old.
