Jennifer Del Rio from 16 and Pregnant has fled her home state of Florida with her twins to get away from her children’s father. You may recall this happy couple from their episode when her then boyfriend Joshua Smith left her on the side of the road before speeding off with his children in the back seat. He’s a classy guy.
The now eighteen-year-old mother is now with her kids in Illinois, citing her ex’s abusive ways as her reasoning for getting the heck out of dodge. Both were arrested (at separate times) in 2011 alleging battery against the other, a claim Jennifer says is totally false.
It’s Life After Labor for the girl’s of MTV’s season three of 16 and Pregnant. Dr. Drew is on hand to host the reunion and ask the hard-hitting questions, as he interviews Jordan Ward, Jennifer Del Rio, Jamie McKay, Danielle Cunningham, Cleondra Carter, Kayla Jackson, Izabella Tovar, Kianna Randall, Taylor Lumas, and Allie Mendoza.
First in the hot seat is Jordan Ward and her husbandBrian Finder. You may remember that Jordan was at the center of a tug-of-war between her twin sister Jessica and Brian. An emotional Jordan reveals to Dr. Drew that she felt the need to have sex so soon because of insecurities brought upon by a very unstable upbringing. On the reunion, the couple explains that they are happily married and living with their son Noah in St. Louis with Jordan’s grandparents and sister Jessica. Jessica now sings Brian’s praises. Both twins get teary when talking about the future. Jessica is so proud that she is the first in her family to go to college, but is distraught that her sister isn’t able to do the same. Jordan still hopes to make something of herself, but admits it’s hard to even think of the financial burden that school loans would bring to her new family. Brian has enlisted in the Air Force, and as we know from recent news, the couple is expecting their second child…although that tidbit was not addressed with Dr. Drew.

This week’s installment of 16 and Pregnant introduces us to Jennifer Del Rio and her older boyfriend Josh Smith(if you didn’t already know of them from recent police reports) of Tampa, Florida. Jennifer seems to come from a close-knit family, and her parents are anything but a fan of her boyfriend, Josh. At twenty-eight weeks pregnant, Jennifer is still a mere baby herself–she is a rising sophomore in high school who is carrying fraternal twin boys.
The first conflict Jennifer finds herself in embroiled in deals with naming her sons. She and Josh have decided to name the boys Noah and Joshua, Jr. Her parents are less than thrilled that one will be named after Josh, and even more upset when they learn Jennifer insists (slash Josh demanded) the boys will have his last name. We figure out that Josh is a real peach, and smart to boot. Examples? “Is it scary knowing two are coming?” Eh, we’ll see. One would be no problem, but two…that’s a tad frightening. I realize these interchanges are partially scripted, but please. The kicker is when Jennifer says she wishes she had known more about birth control, and Josh reveals that he wasn’t “too broke” to buy condoms (as he’d apparently told her) but that the whole process of going to the drug store to purchase them was just too awkward. I’d like to joke about the ways in which his life will be much more awkward now, but honestly, it’s just plain sad (his immature outlook, not their impending family).

Those eager ones are new 16 and Pregnantcouple Jennifer Del Rio and father of her twins boys, Josh Smith. And yes, Jennifer is the one that can be seen on the 16 and Pregnant trailer hitting her boyfriend Josh.
And it seems the couple’s domestic violence incidents do not end when the cameras stop rolling. TMZ is reporting Florida cops were called this week on April 18 after Jennifer, 17, allegedly punched Josh, 19, in the face during an argument. According to Josh’s statement to the police, Jennifer became “irate” and “punched him in the face and pulled on his shirt” when he tried to break up with her.
Jennifer however denies the report and states Josh was the one who punched himself and tried to frame her, as Josh ended up with a bloody nose. The cops simply took a report and made no arrest. Josh was also arrested back in November for allegedly attacking Jennifer and was ordered to complete a domestic violence program. Jennifer alleged back then that Josh threatened to have her raped.
But here comes the shocker folks. Josh filed a restraining order against Jennifer this week and in his court papers, he states Jennifer got pregnant on purpose so that she could star on the MTV hit reality show.
In the court documents, Josh alleges Jennifer is a “compulsive liar” who concocted a diabolical scheme to get pregnant. She apparently starting telling him she was knocked up (though she wasn’t) so that he wouldn’t wear a condom.
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’,” explains Josh.
Jennifer has also filed her own restraining order against Josh and the two are due back in court on May 2.
So let’s tally this up. The couple has a history of domestic violence and they have twins together? Jackpot! Something tells us they are a shoo in for the next installment of Teen Mom! Not that MTV has a history of rewarding bad behavior or anything.
Jennifer and Josh’s 16 and Pregnant episode airs this Tuesday, April 26 on MTV.
