Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

25/2/19: Updated with more social media links. :)

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.

Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:




Brianna Jaramillo

Brianna is 18 and  lives in Wisconsin. Her 6 month old son is named Braeson and during filming she was in a relationship Danae who is a transgender man. Braeson's dad is an old friend who Brianna hooked up with during a break from Danae, but Danae  wants to raise him as his own. (She has since started dating a new man). Braeson was born without a left forearm and hand.

Here's Brianna's FB profile (you can follow her):

Ashley Jones

20 year old Ashley is originally from Las Vegas but moved to Vallejo in California when she found out she was pregnant. Daughter Holly, whose dad is Ashley's fiance Bariki Smith (nicknamed Bar), was born in September.

I had trouble finding social media profiles for Ashley but in the Starcasm article (see below) they linked to her Twitter:

Jade Cline

Jade is  21 and from Indiana and has daughter Kloie who was also born in September. Her dad is Sean Austin. Jade's mum has issues with substance abuse.

Here are Jade's online profile links:



Kayla Sessler

18 year old Kayla has son Izaiah Cole with her on-off boyfriend Stephan Alexander. They live in Illinois.

I wanted to post the trailer on here but can't actually find it on YouTube, so here's a sneak peek of Lexi's story instead:

I'm interested to see what these girls are like and hear their stories. I'm not sure if it will be as good as the original Teen Mom but we'll have to see.  :) Last year I watched a TLC show called Unexpected about pregnant teen girls. I liked it but I think it's only had one series/season so far. You can watch a clip from the show here:

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant starts on Monday 3rd April on MTV UK at 8pm. 

In more Teen Mom news, Mackenzie McKee who starred in the short lived Teen Mom 3, is said to be replacing Farrah Abraham in Teen Mom OG. Farrah has long had difficulties with the rest of the Teen Mom cast and crew, and they let her go recently. Farrah accused the production company Viacom of "sex shaming" her because of her career in the adult film industry and sued them, but they have reached a settlement.

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…
