It’s that time of week again! Another Tuesday, another young woman sharing her story of becoming a mother while just a teenager.
On tonight’s episode of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant we travel to the Buckeye state to meet Taylor Lucas, her daughter Aubri Rose and Aubri’s father Nathan Bridewell.
Taylor lives near Cincinnati, Ohio and her story is bound to raise a few eyebrows because she gave birth at only fifteen years old and actually got pregnant when she was fourteen! As you might imagine, the adoption option weighs in heavily on tonight’s episode, as evidenced by this emotional clip in which Taylor’s mom tries to get her to seriously consider giving her daughter away to someone better able to raise her:
As you would have ascertained from glancing through the photos in this post or by visiting Taylor Lucas’ Facebook page, she doesn’t opt for adoption and instead decides to keep her daughter Aubri Rose, who was born in November of 2010.
Aubri’s baby daddy Nathan Bridewell is a high school track star and just a year older than Taylor. As is often the case the young couple planned to try to stay together and raise young Aubri and as is often the case they have since split up, leaving Taylor to basically raise the child on her own (with the help of her family.)
Taylor answered a question about whether or not she and Nathan were still together on her Facebook fan page, stating quite simply, “No.” When someone aske the follow up question, What Happened?” Taylor responded, “We just couldn’t work it out.”
Nathan has since given LeBron James competition as the best rebounder in the history of Ohio as this current photo from his personal Facebook profile will attest:
Just in case you were wondering, no that’s not Taylor kissing Nathan in the picture, and something tells me it’s not a sister either.
Sadly that’s about all there is on Taylor and Nathan. Her only online presence is her Facebook page, which hasn’t been around very long and doesn’t provide a lot of information. So I guess we’ll just have to tune in to MTV tonight at 10/9c to get to know her!
Oh, and did I mention Aubri could very well take home the Season 3′s most adorable prize?
