MTV highlights five teenage mothers in Teen Mom: Young And Pregnant. However, Brianna Jaramillo's story might be the most compelling.
Brianna And Danae
Eighteen-year-old Brianna Jaramillo is making headlines not only for her participation in the series but also for her relationship. According to MTV, Jaramillo's boyfriend is a transgender man named Danae.
While on a break for a short period of time, Jaramillo had several love interests and the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant admitted making "mistakes." When she was 17, Jaramillo learned that she was 3 months pregnant and was also back together with Danae. While Danae stated that the pregnancy would hurt, he made a statement that made Jaramillo's heart soar.
"I love you, my love for you will never end, and it is strong enough to love you and this child," said Danae according to Jaramillo.
The duo's relationship has been on a constant roller coaster ride. Jaramillo admired the love and attention that Danae gave to her. She initially had no clue that Danae was born a girl, but she decided to embrace him for who he is.
A Son's Challenge
As Jaramillo and Danae continued their love story, they went to her ultrasound appointment where they found a shocking discovery regarding the baby. According to People Magazine, Jaramillo's baby son, Braeson, did not have a left forearm and a hand when he was born.
"It was definitely hard hearing about it and realizing that he might grow up and realize that he's different from everybody else. That was definitely hard. But, talking to my doctor about -- it made it a lot easier to handle it, and I realized it wouldn't slow him down," said Jaramillo to People Magazine.
Danae also made a vow to use his background as an example to Braeson. He hoped that Braeson could open his eyes to different parts of the human experience and not just look at him as a transgender man.
A 'Teen Mom' Update
Jaramillo, Danae, and Braeson are not the only Teen Mom stars making the news. Teen Mom OG stars Catelynn Baltierra and Tyler Baltierra opened up on the tragic miscarriage on the March 19 episode of the MTV series. Tyler visited Catelynn when she was at a mental rehabilitation center, and the duo had an honest heart-to-heart conversation about the miscarriage crisis.
Meanwhile, Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska shared some exciting news with her 5 million Instagram followers that she was expecting a third child. She posted an image of the ultrasound and a black-and-white bow with the phrase, 'it's a girl," onto the social media platform.
Another Teen Mom 2 star, Javi Marroquin, who is Kailyn Lowry's ex-husband, announced that he would be giving romance another try with ex-flame Lauren Comeau.
