MTV's Teen Mom OG showed Cory's relationship with Cheyenne Floyd while raising their 2-year-old little girl Ryder K Wharton together, but that's all it is. Here are some facts about Cory you might want to know.

5. Cory Met Daughter Ryder When She was 6-Months Old

To be clear, the two parents never dated as revealed by Cory in the Instagram Live for Teen Mom (above video). The pair hooked up only once while in New York City.

The millionaire reality star was on 'The Challenge' when Ryder K was born, and Cheyenne didn't tell him about it. After he was eliminated from the show and Cheyenne was ready to be a part of 'Teen Mom OG', six months after Ryder was born, the bombshell was dropped.

Cory expressed his excitement over being the father to Ryder on Instagram in December.

He told the Domenick Nati Show, "We didn't think it was mine because it was only one time, but it ended up being mine. That sperm knew what they wanted! My sperm went right up, created a baby, man, and now I'm here."

4. Daughter Ryder Suffers From A Rare Genetic Disease

Cory's daughter has VLCAD (Very long-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase deficiency). It's a rare hereditary disease that does not allow Ryder's body to break down certain fats and convert them into energy.

Cheyenne found out Ryder had VLCAD two days after her birth when a pediatrician called to tell Cheyenne to go to the hospital immediately.

According to the National Institute of Health, if she suffers from the severe form of the condition, she can also be at risk of severe complications like liver abnormalities and life-threatening heart problems.

3. Regardless Rage Ry

After knowing his daughter suffers from such a rare genetic disease, the reality TV star became more aware and sensitive toward the situation. 

It got them to start an organization named 'Regardless Rage Ry.'
