In case you were wondering if MTV was planning on continuing their popular reality show factory 16 and Pregnant, the answer is yes! We have our first confirmed cast member for the fourth season of the popular young mama drama series and she is Katie Yeager from Green River, Wyoming!
Katie doesn’t have much of her information public online (I’m sure an official Facebook fan page is forthcoming), but I was able to piece together a few tidbits.
Katie Yeager is the daughter of Luci Coplin-Riggs (since remarried) and Russell Armstrong, who races Sprint cars in and around Wyoming. Katie has two younger siblings, sister Blake and brother Riley.
She gave birth to daughter Molli (above) on August 18th, 2011. Molli weighed 7lbs, 1.8 oz and measured 19 inches long.
Molli’s father is Joseph “Joey” Maes (above), who graduated high school in 2010 and is a little older than Katie. OK Joey, before you get upset about that photo in which you are clearly just actin’ goofy, here’s another, cuter photo of you both:
I’m not sure of Katie’s age, but she did graduate high school on June 4 of this year. Her Twitter account says she attends college full time.
Judging from their interactions online it appears as though Katie and her mom Luci occasionally have disagreements, including one at Luci’s house in April while MTV crews were filming.
Luci remarried in Las Vegas in January – I’m not sure if the ceremony (broadcast live online) and the events leading up to it will be featured on the show, but certainly the after-effects of Katie gaining a step-father will!

At this stage that’s all we know. Judging from the photos it appears as though Katie will be quite the character! (Anyone else getting an Emma Stone vibe here?) She obviously has a sense of humor and a fun sense of style to go along with one mighty cute lookin’ baby girl! Now we just have to play the waiting game until her episode airs… ***SIGH***
