Teen Mom 2

Teen Mom 2 just started in the UK. For those who don't know, Teen Mom is a spin off series from the TV show 16 and Pregnant, which (as I'm sure you can guess, lol) is about pregnant teenagers. There is also a series called Teen Mom which follows the lives of four teenagers from the first series of 16 and Pregnant, Maci, Farrah, Catelynn and Amber. Teen Mom 2 is about four more girls, Leah, Chelsea, Kailyn and Jenelle. Here is some info about the girls (based on the series currently showing in the UK):

Leah Messer 

Has twins Aliana and Aleeah with Corey Simms. She and Corey had only been together for a little while when Leah got pregnant. At the end of their 16 and Pregnant episode they broke up because Leah cheated on Corey with her ex-boyfriend Robbie. At the beginning of Teen Mom 2 Leah wants Corey back. In last week's episode, Leah is concerned because Ali is developing slower than Aleeah and has taken her to the hospital.

Chelsea Houska

Has daughter Aubree with ex-boyfriend Adam. Adam has treated her badly in the past and didn't seem to want to be involved in Aubree's life. However at the start of Teen Mom 2 he seems to have changed his mind. Chelsea, who has moved into a house with her friend Megan, is missing Adam and considering getting back together with him.

Kailyn Lowry

Has son Isaac with ex-boyfriend Jo. She doesn't have a good relationship with her mum, so Jo's family took her in while she was pregnant. At the beginning of the series, she and Jo have broken up but Kailyn is still living in his house, she's moved to the basement. She's also just started a new relationship with Jordan, a boy who she works with and this is causing tension with Jo and his family. 

Jenelle Evans

Has son Jace with ex Andrew (although there have since been rumours that Andrew might not be Jace's father). At the end of her 16 and Pregnant episode, Jenelle was relying on her mum Barbara's help to raise Jace because she still wanted to do the things she did in her old life e.g, going out partying. In Teen Mom 2, Barbara has decided to sue Jenelle for custody of Jace.

In the original Teem Mom, my favourite girls were Maci and Catelynn. Maci just seemed the most likeable to me and I thought Catelynn coped well with giving her daughter Carly up for adoption and living in a difficult home environment. I haven't watched Teen Mom 2 enough yet to have a favourite. Teen Mom 2 is on MTV on Wednesdays at 9pm.

Unexpected Girls Updates

Back in September I did a post about the American reality TV show Unexpected. You can read it here:

There have been two seasons (or series as we also call it in the UK) so far. There will be a 3rd one  featuring mums Lexus, Mckayla and Chloe (Chloe joined in Series 2). Emiley who joined in Season 2, says she isn't returning (see below) so. Laura (who also joined in S2) will also not be back (see below for more on that). Original cast member Lexus shared a casting call on her Instagram page in November, so it seems the company is looking for new girls due to give birth from March to June 2019. Check out the post here;

The gossip site Starcasm also reports that Unexpected's producers are casting for a new programme:

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant UK

The Teen Mom universe keeps growing! This month sees the start of a brand new spin-off- a UK version of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. The original Teen Mom, now re-named Teen Mom OG (itself a spin-off on the American reality show 16 and Pregnant, which follow pregnant teenagers) started in 2009 and there have been several other shows since- Teen Mom 2, Teen Mom 3 (cancelled after one season), Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant and Teen Mom: Young Moms Club (formerly Pretty Little Mamas). There have also been several international versions, including Teen Mom UK and Teen Mom Australia. Series 6 of TM: UK just finished and now the British version of Young and Pregnant is due to start next week.

TM: Young and Pregnant UK follows 4 new girls- Charlie, Alisha, Laura and Charlotte who are all expecting babies. When TM UK started only Mia Boardman was pregnant but this time all of the mums were pregnant during filming. (Which makes sense since this is "young and pregnant"! lol).



23/2/19: Updated with new links. :)

Unexpected (full title Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant) is an American reality TV series following the lives of pregnant teenagers and their partners, and their journey into parenthood. It's the TLC version of the hit show 16 and Pregnant, which spawned the spin off Teen Mom. The first series/season was shown last year, and Series 2 was shown in the US this summer and has just started in the UK.

Season 1 followed  16 year old Lilly Bennett and her boyfriend James,  15 year old Lexus Scheller and boyfriend Shayden, 17, and Mckayla Adkins 16 and her boyfriend Caelan Morrison. Lilly gave birth to daughter Aaliyah Rose, Lexus had a daughter named Scarlett, and McKayla had son Timothy (Timmy).

All 3 of the girls' mums were also teen mothers, and in Lexus' case her grandmother was a teen mum too.

S2 catches up with Mckayla and Lexus, and introduce some new girls and their boyfriends. I'm focusing mainly on the girls here, like with my Te…
