"16 and Pregnant" show on MTV

The new show "16 and Pregnant" on MTV follows teens who are pregnant and dealing with issues like marriage, adoption, school, work, and gossip. The first episode, which aired last night, featured Maci, who is pregnant and just graduating high school. Her baby's father, Ryan, doesn't seem supportive at all. While Maci works, goes to college, and takes care of their baby Bentley Cadence, he enjoys nights out with friends and can't even be bothered to change one diaper.

The episode was certainly an eye-opener for teenagers who dream of having a cute baby of their own to love. Raising a baby at a young age is not glamorous or easy. Maci was forced to sacrifice her teenage years and high school experience.
