According to reports, her father had died when she was young. However, many of these statements are not supported by evidence, so facts about her father are a bit unclear. Her mother, Darlene, also doesn’t seem to have a good relationship with one of her daughters.

Darlene is married to Frank, who also stars in another TLC reality show. Frank did, however, die quite unexpectedly in the month of January 2021. His age would be around 62 years.

Now Amy is quite famous for taking part in the 1000lb show but her lesser known sibling is Chris Combs. Introduced later in the series, he also struggled with his weight and sought medical attention.

So Amy would have a total of 2 siblings, Tammy and Chris, who both seemed to struggle with their weight. These Slaton siblings seemed to have hit some tough points on the show. Still, they have since reconciled their differences and seem to be quite supportive of each other and their struggle.

Amy and her siblings would give their grandmother more credit than their real mother. They believe that their grandmother raised them.

She says this because Darlene would spend long hours at work, and the child’s primary caregiver would be the grandmother. This dynamic made Amy and her siblings very close to her grandmother.
