Deven Clegg’s son Taeyang just gave us all the feels as the resilient four-year-old enjoyed a well-deserved surprise.

The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way alum posted photos from Taeyang’s fun day out thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

It’s been a challenging time for Taeyang, who was diagnosed with B-cell acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia–a type of blood cancer– in May of 2022.

Since sharing the news of her son’s condition, Deavan and her mom, Elicia Clegg, have been keeping us updated on his condition.

The toddler has been in and out of the hospital since his diagnosis and, at one point, lost all his hair due to chemotherapy treatments In December of 2022.

At first, Taeyang’s body did not react well to the treatments as he got weak and pale and experienced nosebleeds while in the hospital. Things improved a few days later, and he returned home to his family.

It’s been over a year since the diagnosis, and Taeyan is still battling cancer but is doing much better, according to Deavan.
