The couple who according to the dailymail had hoped their first video sharing effort would kickstart their YouTube channel, have now disabled comments on the video.
On December 9, Madison and her family told Chris they were going out to lunch but had to stop at a car shop first.
When they arrived, a four door sedan vehicle was waiting for him wrapped up in a red bow.
‘Merry Christmas Chris. The car’s all yours,’ Madison’s stepdad said.
At the time, the incredulous boyfriend refused to accept the gift only for Madison’s mother to insist, ‘It’s yours!’
Before rushing over to the vehicle, he hugged every member of the family, prompting Madison’s mother, who was filming, to shout: ‘Go check out your car! We can hug later!’

To date, Duke and Hunter have shared few details over their relationship, except to say they have been together for 11 months.
It is not clear how old they are or how far along in high school they are, though it appears she is a junior in high school and he attends the same school.
He is a star soccer player and athlete and she is an athletic trainer.
Chris has since told Twitter followers how he had planned on marrying Madison beforehand.
For her part, Madison has describing, Hunter as ‘the love of her life’ and ‘best friend’ while sharing photos of each other. Time will tell how long the teen lover’s relationship will last, but time may never tell how long couples such as Chris and Madison may unfortunately have get used to racial commentary regarding the interracial nature of their relationship- not that should be a deal-breaker but perhaps a blessing….
