On the next episode of “16 and Pregnant,” we’ll meet Arianna, who is no longer together with the father of her baby, Maurice. This inevitably adds to Arianna’s stress of preparing for their son’s arrival, both mentally and financially.
In the sneak peek below, Arianna calls her ex, hoping to hear he got a job so that he can buy some essential items for the baby. When Maurice tells her that he’s not working but his family is planning a shower, the confession sparks a heated argument.
“Why are you having a shower?” Arianna confusedly asks. “You’re not the mom. I’m sorry, but that makes no sense.”
“Whenever my son’s with me, over here, I mean, he’s gotta have s**t,” Maurice responds.
This answer upsets Arianna and she snaps back: “Yeah, well, when he is over there…when… It’s not gonna be any time soon.”
The exes then argue about providing for their baby, each accusing the other of not doing enough and avoiding certain responsibilities. “All I ever hear from y’all is talk. I don’t ever see nothing,” Arianna says. “I need to see some action. I’m not gonna be the only one taking care of him financially.”
Watch the video and tune in to “16 and Pregnant” on Monday night at 10/9c to see if Arianna and Maurice can find a way to co-parent civilly.
