Chance Perez met his girlfriend over 8 years ago in 2013 when the duo were attending Los Alamitos High School. They met in school and it was romance soon after. The lovebirds started going out and the high school romance that started almost a decade ago has had its ups and downs but still they are together. Maybe their daughter played a role but, two people need to really care for one another to be in each other's lives.
In 2015 Chance was 17 and his girlfriend, Emma Smith, was 16 when they became parents. Being teenagers the relationship suffered a little but they stayed together for the sake of their daughter. Emma went to school six weeks after giving birth. But the strain on their relationship was too much, which is why Chance and Emma separated.

Chance Perez and his girlfriend Emma Smith were still teenagers when they became parents. Even the most prepared of relationships have trouble dealing with a screaming child in their home, imagine still maturing teenagers getting thrust into that situation. Suffice it to say, the relationship did not last long and the couple got joint-custody of the child but ended their relationship.
The separation was contentious as the actor revealed on BoyBand in 2017, "There was troubles, you know, in our relationship with my daughter's mom. I was thinking my heart - I didn't know what to do differently, because you know, we were young. When we split I didn't really let myself feel anything, and... I just kind of accepted that it happened, and it took me two months to even try to do anything about it. And by that time it was too late. You know, I just kind of blocked that out."
While Brooklyn Louise Smith, their daughter born on 10 July 2015, had both her mom and dad in her life. Her time was divided between her two parents' families. The couple wanted to give their child as normal a life as possible, even though this were far from normal. But there is this about people who love each other, they stay in each other's lives and try to mend fences instead of building new ones up.
That is exactly what happened as Chance Perez and his baby's mother decided to give it another go in 2020. Chance was cast in Power Rangers Dino Fury which was filming in Auckland, so he, his girlfriend went to New Zealand. The family of three enjoyed their time together in the country and it appears their relationship is back on track.
