A new season of Teen Mom 2 is about to invade your television sets in a couple of weeks, but until then read on for the latest on Teen Mom 3.
The 16 and Pregnant Alumni chosen for the latest installment of the Teen Mom series will be Mackenzie Douthit, Alex Sekella, Briana Dejesus, and Katie Yeager.
Mackenzie Douthit, 18, who was a high school cheerleader and mom to Gannon, recently said “I was scared to do the show [initially], but I can’t look back and change the fact that I got pregnant so all I can do is look towards the future.” We will continue to see her and fiancé Josh’s struggles with teen parenthood on the show.
Alex Sekella, 18 and mother of Arabella, had problems early on. Besides being a pregnant teen she also had to deal with her boyfriend’s drug addiction. Alex made the comment on her twitter page that Matt’s addiction was far worse than depicted on MTV. She also tells InTouch Magazine “I refuse to let him see her.” She is currently working several jobs to ensure her baby daddy stays out of the picture.
Briana Dejesus, 17 and mom to Nova Star, had a more controversial story line on 16 and Pregnant. Here sister, who was also pregnant when she was, opted for an abortion instead of continuing with the pregnancy. “My story lets you see there are different choices. With every choice you make, there’s hardships. No matter what, it’s still going to be difficult, but you still have a choice.” We will get to see what some of those hardships are.
Katie Yearer, 19 and mom to Molli, had the least drama during her stint on 16 and Pregnant. She was living it up with her baby daddy, Joey and just enjoying being a family. This past June fans went crazy when they learned she caught him cheating and called him and the home wrecker out on Twitter and Facebook proving their life wasn’t such a fairytale after all.
A premiere date has yet to be announced for Teen Mom 3, but it will presumably air right after this season of Teen Mom 2 ends. Teen Mom 2, which stars Leah Messer, Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans and Chelsea Houska, returns on it’s new night, Monday Nov. 12 at 10 p.m. on MTV
