It is unclear as to when Krin Nelson was born. Her family living the way they are, are far away from technology and Krin herself is quite secretive about the details. Krin was born while her family was still living in Alaska. After the death of her sister, Heimo decided to relocate the kids to a safer place. Born and raised in Alaska, Krin is big on fishing and hunting. Little is known about her academics and her early life. But judging from the way her family operates, it is safe to say Krin spent most of her life in the woods. Krin also has two elder sisters, Rhonda and Melinda.
Krin is a firefighter and is married to a US marine by the name of Scott Nelson. It is unclear as to how and where the pair met and got married. The pair have a baby boy, Colby. Colby Nelson was born on the 17th of April 2016. He shares his birthday with his grandfather, Heimo Korth.
Krin was pregnant once again in June of 2019 but lost the baby due to miscarriage. The pair took to Instagram to disclose the sad news. She mentioned that the baby’s heart stopped somewhere between 15-16 weeks. However, they overcame that difficulty with courage and resilience, and grew stronger as a couple. Krin and Scott are still married as of 2023. They are also hoping to have another baby in the future.
Both of Krin’s parents, Edna and Heimo are well-known figures of reality TV. Even though Krin made some on and off appearances on the show, she never worked as a full cast member. Even though Krin may not appear so frequently on the show, she loves visiting her family every now and then. Her family tags along in those visits and Heimo is absolutely smitten with his grandson.
Krin Nelson is big on social media and often uses the platform to dish out relevant news with fans of the show. She regularly posts updates about her parents and his more than happy to post pictures of her family. She has gathered over 50K fans on Facebook and has around 10K fan following on Instagram. Krin loves to take pictures of young Coby and posts them regularly on the medium.
