- The 16 and Pregnant & Teen Mom Controversy - Glamorizing teen pregnancy?
- Which teen mom do you most identify with?
The four girls who will be appearing on the show this year originally appeared on "16 & Pregnant" but made the move to the "Teen Mom" series, which will follow their lives over the next few years.
First, there is Mackenzie Douthit. She is an 18-year-old from Oklahoma who has a one-year-old named Gannon. Mackenzie is currently attending beauty school and hopes to work in a salon some day to support her son.
Next up is Katie Yeager. Katie, who admittedly falls in love easily, broke up with her baby’s daddy because he was talking to another girl. She hopes to one day achieve a PhD in Psychology. The Utah native admits that her ex-fiance cheated on her while they were engaged.
Briana DeJesus is mom number 3 and her little girl, Nova, is super cute. Hailing from Orlando, Florida, the 19-year-old mama dreams of one day going to college. Her baby daddy was arrested for drugs and stealing and struggles to be a part of Nova’s life.
Mom number 4 is Alex Sekella, a 19-year-old Pennsylvanian who calls Allentown home. Her daughter, Arabella, just turned one and is quite a handful. Alex dreams of being a professional dancer, but that seems unlikely, considering she has to work three minimum-wage jobs to support her little girl.
Take a peek at the Teen Mom 3 trailer:
The shows have often been criticized for promoting teen pregnancy, but the show's creators have adamantly stated that they intend to show the reality of teen motherhood, which may include loneliness, failed relationships, and financial difficulty.
Let's watch together on tonight & discuss!
