VIDEOS 16 & Pregnant’s Kristina Robinson post-show interview

While I was expecting an intense season finale last night for Season 4 of 16 & Pregnant I still wasn’t quite prepared for the emotional ride I was taken on while viewing the pregnancy story of Kristina Robinson.

Having lost the father of her son and fiance John Todd Hight Jr. to a tragic drowning accident viewers were given a dramatic and very real view as to how not only Kristina, but Kristina’s mom, Todd’s mom and brother and all who loved him did their best to handle their emotions and grief in such a difficult circumstance.

Add in the dynamic of Kristina expecting the late Hight’s son and the sense of loss and sadness was palpable and made it darn near difficult to watch. MTV has posted a follow up 3 part video interview with Kristina as she discusses her life now and how she managed to get through such a heart-wrenching time.

Part 1:

In the first part Kristina revealed that her mom discovered that she was pregnant because she had a pooch that wasn’t there before. She also stated that she had been dating Todd for only around 3 months when she got pregnant. She added that at first, looking at her son would make her sad because he looked like his late father but that it doesn’t anymore.

Part 2:

Towards the conclusion of last night’s episode there was a great moment in which viewers were shown Kristina first attended counseling in an attempt to handle her grief so that she could be there for her baby. In this 2nd clip she confirmed that she’s continued with therapy and that it definitely helps and that sometimes her mom attends.

Kristina acknowledged that her mom still aggravates her but that their relationship is in a much better place. It’s still difficult for her to hear constant conversation about what happened to Todd.

Part 3:

This last part is where the real new developments in Kristina’s life come to light. She has met someone new and got engaged (she’s actually married now). His name is TJ Head and she says that he makes her very happy. She added that he’s good to baby Lukas and that he doesn’t try to take the place of Todd.

Her relationship with Dottie and Todd’s brother Daniel has broken off. Kristen insists that this didn’t start happening when she began dating TJ but earlier, when she started going back out again with her friends etc.. TJ Head was Todd and Daniel’s friend and they found the relationship disrespectful according to Kristina. She argues that his knowledge of Todd and who he was and the fact that he talks to Lukas about his dad and has respect for his memory makes their relationship more meaningful.

Todd’s mother Tina spoke with us about some inflammatory remarks she made about Todd’s death possibly not being an accident. You can read that exclusive interview here.

Closing it out Kristina said that Todd’s family eventually didn’t want her dating anyone and that she decided that in order for her son to be happy she needed to be happy so she moved on.

    I must say, I am 25 years old and have never been engaged or married (nokids)… These girls sure do get married and engaged like its nothing, what is the damn Overall I guess her and her new husband both needed each other, I thought it was weird for her to date her uncle in law’s brother anyhow, that is what they should have stopped, not concerning themselves with her new situation..

  • 16&pregnantresponder

    First I would like to know how all these young ladies get married and engaged so quick, I’m nearly 25 and still haven’t been asked to be married, lol. Anyway I think her family should have been more concerned with her dating her uncle in law’s brother, I found that rather odd, more so than her moving on and marrying already. These kids sure do get married quickly.

  • Lacey

    Good for her. I’m really happy to see she is happy and is doing well. I was very concered and worried about her at first and how well she would be able to handle the loss after Lukas was born. Yes she probably got married a lot faster than what anyone would think would be good for her but honestly when you know someone is the one you know whether it be a couple months or for years. I’m just really glad to see she is doing well baby Lukas seems to be doing well and that Todds memory will still remain in Lukas life. Just hope that she can build her relationship back up with dottie n daniel.. keep on being strong and happy girl!!

    Good for her, can’t believe that his family would be upset with her for moving on. She was 16 was she supposed to spend the rest of her life alone? She obviously will always hold a special place in her heart for Todd but she did what she needed to do! So good for her. She deserves happiness in her life!
    On a side note her episode was heart wrenching to watch. What a strong woman and mother she is!

  • Amy

    I may have missed this at the beginning, but why did her aunt and fiancées brother live together? We’re they a couple? Just trying to figure out that situation! Thanks!

    • Rayne

      Dottie and Daniel (Todd’s brother) are married and have 3 kids. Dottie is Kristina’s aunt that Kristina was living w/ because she didn’t get along w/ her mother. It was at their home that she met and started dating Daniel’s brother Todd.

      What happened was tragic but to call the girl a whore because she moved on … which is what Daniel did on Todd’s facebook page where the family still talk to Todd … was out of line. I’m sure Todd would not want her alone and miserable just to honor him. I would not want my husband to be alone forever if I died.

      Shame on Dottie for turning against her own niece when she needs her the most. You don’t have to approve of your loved one’s decisions … but you love and support them anyway because they are family!

      They all truly need therapy. I can’t blame Kristina for not allowing his family to see Lucas after all they’ve done to her … including implying that Todd’s death was murder. I wouldn’t let them around my child either. Can you imagine the damage that could do to a baby?

      I agree that Lucas needs his father’s family in his life. I only pray that they all get the therapy they need so that they can be a positive influence in this child’s life.

  • Dianna

    im glad she is doing better. i get why she couldn’t really talk to anybody on the show cuz she was right about the fact that alot of people really don’t know what shes going through.

    i don’t understand really the need to get married so quickly, i knew when i found the guy i wanted to marry too but we don’t feel a need to rush into it. but hey im not a teen mom and im sure that has alot to do with it.

  • Nikki

    Its really bad that she can’t let his family see Lukas, I mean that’s the last piece of their son/brother left…

    • Rayne

      It is terrible that this has happened but everyone in that family needs some serious therapy.

      They don’t get to see baby Lukas because of their attitudes towards that baby’s mother. I think Todd would truly be ashamed of his family.

      My gosh, they had only been dating for about 3 months when she got pregnant; and, Todd died when she was 2 months pregnant. That’s not exactly a long term relationship like being together for years. They were teens. Teen relationships don’t last. They are just beginning to find who they are in this world. Odds are they would not be together even if Todd were alive … statistically speaking. There’s nothing wrong w/ this girl moving on and finding some happiness after the unimaginable tragedy she has had to face.

      According to someone that knows the family, there is a lot more to this than people know. Todd’s own sister lost custody of her kids. None of them were deemed acceptable for custody by CPS which probably has a lot to do w/ why they don’t have visitation. If they really want to be involved in this baby’s life then they all need to get some serious therapy and treat the mother of that baby w/ the respect she deserves. They have no right to expect this girl to mourn forever a guy she had only been w/ for maybe 6 months.

      If everyone involved truly loved this baby, they’d do whatever it took to put this baby’s best interests 1st … above all their petty issues.

    • Really?

      The family who defamed, slandered, and accused her of murder? Yeah, what a SHAME she isn’t letting HER son (not theirs) around those loonies! Really?

      No wonder she doesn’t want him around them, and there are probably a lot of good reasons Lukas has not seen them. And that child is a unique individual. He is NOT a last piece of Todd. He is the offspring of Todd, but he is an individual.
