The LaBrant Fam YouTube Channel
In Summer 2016, Savannah met former Viner Cole LaBrant at The Grove outdoor mall in Los Angeles, when Cole was visiting his family with his best friends and brother for a month. At the time of their meeting, Savannah was a 23-year-old single mom, while Cole was 19 years old. They began dating soon after, and in January 2019 the couple announced their engagement via social media. Six months later, they officially tied the knot in a lavish and romantic ceremony.
While Savannah was mainly active on her Instagram and website, Cole, who had already gained fame through Vine, had subsequently launched a YouTube channel in 2015 after the shutdown of the Vine platform, and posted videos such as “Prom With Selena Gomez”, which went viral. However, after he met Savannah, his content changed drastically and became centered around his relationship with Savannah and her daughter; one of their first videos is entitled “Game Day Has Sad Ending “, “First Time at Disneyland Vlog with Savannah and Everleigh”. They continued creating family-friendly content, documenting Everleigh’s interesting journey and moments as well as their roles as parents.

The book recounts the most important moments of their relationship, from their first meeting to their wedding and after. It also includes their individual insights about previous relationships, and the lessons they had learned along the way.
Who is Everleigh’s father?
While it’s known that Cole Labrant isn’t the father of Savannah’s first daughter, then who is? In her video “My 19 and pregnant Story”, she talked about her relationship with Tommy Smith, whom she dated before Cole, and after a couple of months of dating she became pregnant. While she often said that her family and friends were supportive of her pregnancy, that was not the case in her relationship with Tommy. In the video, she said: “After I gave birth, my friends started to wither away, and it was not entirely because of Everleigh. A lot of it was because of the relationship that I was in. I lost a lot of friends because nobody supported my relationship”.
Additionally, in various other videos she refers to this relationship as “toxic” and “abusive”, adding that it had derailed her from the path of God and Christianity.
Inaccuracies in her Stories
Since gaining popularity and launching their joint family channel, LaBrant’s especially, Savannah has received online backlash for numerous inconsistencies in her stories about her past and her relationship with Everleigh’s father, Tommy. In her book and video, she referred to her pregnancy as unplanned, saying: ”We had just broken up when I realized I was “late”, so I bought a pregnancy test. Tommy came over, and we saw the results together. I was pregnant”. However, a source close to the family who wrote in the LaBrant snark forum, claimed that Everleigh was planned, and also disclosed that Savannah had cheated on Tommy, which is contrary to her version of the story.

While the authenticity and credibility of the source is impossible to determine, the forum has a history of disclosing vital information before they become public knowledge, such as the name of Zealand.
The other point of confusion with the LaBrant family is the relationship Savannah and Everleigh have with Tommy Smith. On various occasions, she and Cole mentioned Tommy in a negative context, and appear to minimize his role as a father. In the book, she described her volatile relationship with Tommy: ”Two months after dating, we slept together for the first time. Pretty much the next day, my super-sweet boyfriend changed completely. It was like he got what he wanted and then stopped trying.” Additionally, Cole revealed some incriminating information, saying that Tommy had been upset about their dating and had written on her car with a side note that read “I’m so sorry”.
Later, Savannah said that they were co-parenting and that they had had a good relationship for the sake of Everleigh. Cole also added that Tommy had been a great father to Everleigh.
There is no way to get the whole story from YouTube videos and social media posts on what happened behind the scenes. However, what is available online seems to present contradictory messages about LaBrant’s relationship with Tommy.
Scandals and controversy
Besides their contradictory stories, the couple has been criticized for exploiting their children for views, and creating clickbait titles and thumbnails, which seems to imply that one or more of their children is in danger, or hurt.

The original video showed a composite image of the family with a photo of a fire in the background, implying that the family was in danger, while the video was entitled “A Giant Fire Makes Us Evacuate”.
However, one of their neighbors saw the video and the thumbnail, and explained that the LaBrant family lived in an area that wasn’t ravished by fire. hence they didn’t need to evacuate – “Since I live in the same neighborhood as them, I was baffled as to what fire they could be referencing…I watched half of the video and was so outraged that they would exploit the Holy Fire tragedy for their profit”. Following the criticism, the LaBrant family changed the title of the video and the thumbnail. The family has also been called out for social media posts that appear to use their Christian faith to push their viewpoints on controversial issues such as politics, racism, and LGBTQ+ issues.
