MTV is keeping with its commitment to prove to you that your life choices could have been worse, much much worse. So that means we get yet another pregnancy show focused on young people. This time around they are combining 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom by showing numerous young people’s stories and showing what happens after the babies get here. We also get a couple of 20 year old’s which does help bring a couple of the stories out of the high school setting. In addition, moving between multiple storylines provides a lot of drama and activity to follow – so let’s meet the couples of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
This week MTV announced that a new Teen Mom reality series is heading our way next month and we can’t wait! Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is set to debut on Monday, March 12. The show will feature not just moms-to-be who are 16 and pregnant, but this will highlight a group who range in age from 17 to 20. The show will introduce us to five new Teen Moms: Lexi & Briana (17), Kayla (18), and Jade & Ashley (20).
I know Teen Mom takes a lot of heat for “glorifying” teen pregnancy, but the opposite is true. The show is great birth control for many by showing the horrifying reality, pressure, and struggle of having babies at a young age. The stats to prove it are below in MTV’s press release.
