Jordan Ward of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant is, well, pregnant!
It has been confirmed that the 18-year-old former model and her husband of five-months, Brian, are expecting their second child, a baby girl, in early November. Before you fly off the handle at this teen mom getting herself knocked up, not once, but twice… maybe you should listen to Jordan’s side of the story.
According to a recent interview with US Weekly, Ward spoke out about why her story is different from her fellow 16 & Pregnant-ers,
I just felt like my story was different from past 16 and Pregnant girls. My boyfriend is still a huge part of the picture and a great dad, and I hope someone out there can relate… Our relationship keeps getting stronger. It’s not that often, but we get alone time when we can, and try to go to the movies a couple times a month after Noah is in bed.
She and Brian may still be teens, but it does appear like the couple’s got a pair of good heads on their shoulders.
I don’t feel like a teen anymore, that’s for sure. And I don’t like being labeled as a teen mom too much, either. I didn’t know taking care of a baby would be as hard as it is, but Noah is my responsibility, so I don’t ask my family to wake up with him if he wakes up.
Jordan’s pregnancy will be revealed on the 16 & Pregnant reunion special, which will air at the end of the season.
It may not be an ideal situation, but I’m giving these two kids my blessing. They’ve kept their noses clean so far and here’s hoping they can stay a big happy family.
