The cast of “Teen Mom 3” have officially revealed themselves: Mackenzie Douthit, Katie Yeager, Alexandria Sekella and Briana Dejesus have confirmed through a variety of Twitter exchanges that they are the latest “16 and Pregnant” alums to be featured on the hit spinoff series.
“Here we are,” Mackenzie tweeted on Halloween, with an In Touch picture of the four girls.
Finally, Katie retweeted this message from what a guy we can only assume is not really her husband: “My wifey @Katiebyeager is gonna be on #TeenMom3…congrats can’t wait to see you on TV.”
MTV has yet to officially confirm the casting or a premiere date for “Teen Mom 3,” but with “Teen Mom 2’s” new season premiering Monday (not to mention its cast’s social networking) an announcement is expected soon.
In case you need a refresher, here’s a recap of the girl’s storylines and status report at the “16 and Pregnant” Season 4 reunion show.
Mackenzie Douthit: The 16-year-old cheerleader became pregnant by her bull-riding, bull-headed boyfriend, Josh McKee. After a pregnancy complicated by her diabetes, Mackenzie gave birth to a nearly 10-pound baby boy, Gannon. She and Josh are still together, sexually active and not using birth control. This “decision” is supported by Mackenzie’s mom, who — wait for it — believes it encourages premarital sex.
Alex Sekella: The determined dancer’s dreams of owning her own studio dimmed when she become pregnant with her unreliable boyfriend, Matt McCann. Alex seriously considered adoption — especially after her friend’s parents volunteered and her mom threatened to kick her out if she didn’t give up the baby. In the end, Alex kept her daughter, Arabella, even after Matt was MIA throughout her labor and birth. Legal issues prevented Matt, an admitted drug addict, from attending the reunion show, but Alex admitted she was still sleeping with her baby daddy.
Briana DeJesus: Briana’s storyline was shared by her sister, Brittany, who was pregnant at the same time. Brittany ultimately chose to have an abortion, while Briana gave birth to daughter Nova Star. Nova’s baby daddy, Devoin Austin, has never truly supported his daughter — emotionally or financially — although he promised to make more of an effort when he appeared on the “16 and Pregnant” reunion show.
Katie Yeager: Katie has a rare supportive baby daddy in boyfriend Joey Maes, and their story focused on the couple’s financial struggles “16 and Pregnant” through Katie’s pregnancy and after the birth of their daughter, Molli. He is still supporting the family, who live in their own house, with a dangerous mining job. Katie is attending school and using birth control. “Teen Mom” win!
“Teen Mom 2” returns Monday, Nov. 5 at 10 p.m. on MTV.
