It’s been over a year since Alex‘s, Briana‘s, Katie‘s and Mackenzie‘s “16 and Pregnant” episodes aired on MTV, and while much has changed in all four of the girls’ lives since they gave birth, much has also remained the same. They’ve accepted the constant hardships that accompany premature parenthood, but that doesn’t make it any less difficult to endure, especially when the girls’ personal relationships are hanging by a thread.
Last we left Katie, Joey had stepped up to the plate as both a boyfriend and a dad, but in the “Teen Mom 3” trailer below, we see things are from from rosy for the young couple. And that appears to be the case for all of the ladies and their babies’ fathers. Alex’s boyfriend, Matt, is still in the throes of a nasty drug addiction; Briana’s ex, Devoine, hardly ever sees his daughter; and Mackenzie’s fiancé, Josh, is growing more and more distant with the stress of so many new responsibilities. Practicing safe sex (or swearing it off for life) has never looked so appealing.
You won’t find any knights in shining armor within these stories, but you may be surprised by the strength and resolve of the female protagonists. Check out the trailer for “Teen Mom 3,” premiering August 26 at 10/9c, and tell us if you’ll be watching!
