I’m a big believer that 16 and Pregnant and the Teen Mom franchise deters teens from getting pregnant, that it educates them and shows them the real side of being teen parents.
But not everyone feels that way about it. Some people INSIST that 16 and Pregnant is glamorizing being teen parents and that some girls will even get pregnant in order to be on the show. Could you imagine?
Well Jennifer del Rio’s baby daddy Josh is accusing Jennifer of doing just that. He claims that the only reason that had unprotected sex was because she was showing him ultrasound pictures three months before she actually got pregnant and telling him that he didn’t need to wear a condom because she was already pregnant when in fact she wasn’t!
This is what he claims:
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when actually it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she copied,” he says.
“She lied to me and my parents for three months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on Sixteen and Pregnant.”
Now let’s keep this in perspective. Who is this coming from? Josh the jerk who drove off like maniac with his two infant children in the car. When did he make this accusation? After they had a domestic dispute were they *both* filed restraining orders. And how does this fit in to him being around during the pregnancy? If someone tricked me into being a parent at such a young age I don’t think I’d be all to happy about it.
I wonder if he’s just being immature which he proved himself to be during the episode. Or did he stick around because she convinced him that they’d be famous and he wanted a piece of the action too!
And if Jennifer did get pregnant on purpose. The jokes on her because as if raising one baby wasn’t hard enough she got two. And this my friends is why you should always be careful what you wish for!
What do you think? Do you think he’s telling the truth? Do you think their are other teenage girls getting pregnant on purpose just so they can be on 16 and Pregnant?
