VIDEO 16 and Pregnant season 5 sneak peek released, premiere date announced

16 and Pregnant Season 5

After a long wait, 16 and Pregnant season 5 will debut on Tuesday, April 29!

For the past few months, we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for a big MTV announcement about the 16 and Pregnant season 5 premiere date. Then they went and slid it right past us with an inconspicuous mention in a New York Times editorial…

Concluding the opinion column “TV Lowers Birthrate (Seriously),” writer Nicholas Kristof said, “After a hiatus, MTV will introduce season five of 16 and Pregnant on April 29.”

We already know a few of the young moms who will participate in the fifth season, which was actually announced last summer: Karley Deatherage Shipley is a married mom of twins. Maddy Godsey is a single mom of a baby girl. Chassiney Kellerman is a brand new mom to a baby boy.

The new season will premiere exactly 23 moths after the 16 and Pregnant season 4 finale — meaning this has been a long time coming.

UPDATE MTV confirmed the first of 12 new 16 and Pregnant episodes will premiere next month.

According to the press release, “In the new season, a star athlete will find her sports dreams derailed after a one-night stand, a pregnant teen will have to deal with her own mother’s addiction and a famously popular girl will wind up homeless when her pregnancy test yields a positive result.”

MTV also the ante by releasing a sneak peek at Madison Godsey’s episode. In this clip, Maddy’s mom, who recently had a baby of her own, says Maddy can only stay in the home for one month after the baby’s born.

“You’re the one who chose to grow up so fast,” Madison’s mom chides.

“I didn’t choose to get pregnant at this age, mom,” Madison responded. “But I can’t take it back.”

    I’m actually excited for this. But I feel kind of torn, because at this point in time, we can be sure that 16 and pregnant does encourage some girls to get pregnant….crap! While I find it ridiculous for the show to go on, I can’t help but look forward to it T_T

  • Judy

    Time to see spoiled teenage girls get paid to be on TV and receive welfare checks

  • Carrie

    Regarding that little sneak peak: I wonder if that is really true… about her mom kicking her out of the house after the baby is born. A few of the past ’16 & Pregnant’ moms have admitted to the producers throwing in certain “story lines” to make it more interesting.

    • Mia003

      Usually they are mad and threaten but then let them stay and even help take care of baby like free baby sitting and help pay for diapers and formula ect..

  • awoman

    This mother disgusts me. Her daughter is 16 and made a stupid decision. She still deserves to be loved and way more than this mother seems capable of.

    • spottedgiraffe

      Oh shut up. The mom told her from day one if she got pregnant she was out. Not her fault her idiot daughter didn’t take her seriously and use birth control, or at least not sleep with guys she admits she doesn’t even know. The mom doesn’t need to suffer for Maddy’s stupid choices and neither should her siblings. She did something grown up now she can live like one.

      • awoman

        Because that is an excuse for treating your child like this. Uh huh. Sure. Glad I’m not your kid.

    • Mia003

      Uh why should she have to take care of her daughters kid too just because she wanted to have unprotected sex and get pregnant as a teen. I’m sure her mom talked to her about protection like condoms and birth control. It’s not her responsibility to pay for everything for her daughters child. If you can’t afford to live on your own then you can’t afford a child.

      • awoman

        Or you can help your kid get on their feet. Hmm, one of those seems like the kind of parent I want to be.

  • Jess

    According to “Ashley’s reality round- up” Maddie( the girl in the clip) is the star athlete whom got pregnant in a one night stand but multiple sources say that Maddie got pregnant by a boyfriend she had been with for two years

  • A_Nicole

    Wow this is going to be an interesting episode.
    First off why if you don’t know Cody that well did you have sex with him?
    And if you cannot deal with the responsibilities and possible consequences of sex then you are not ready for sex sorry.
    I feel bad that the mom is kicking her out but if they don’t have the room for another baby then where are they going to put the child? The parents have other kids to think about too but I feel torn because I’m not sure what would be the best option
    These two remind me of that TLC show my teen is pregnant and so am I show.

  • Mia

    Her hair!! Kind of looks like Leah’s hair!

  • shebee

    This woman looks like mother of the year. She said many things that triggered dysfunctional. First of all if your daughter says she “needs to talk” the first thing out of your mouth shouldn’t be “are you pregnant?” The mother also said ” I just became a mom again 3 months ago.” Newsflash you never stop being a mom. A new baby doesn’t make you a mom again. Maybe if she had been a constant mom her daughter wouldn’t be pregnant at 16. The statement that she always told her daughter if she got pregnant at 16, she would put her out is very telling. Apparently teenage pregnancy was expected. The daughter stated she doesn’t know the baby’s father well and can’t go live with her own father. Ugh sadly enough as I rant, I can’t say I won’t watch but MTV needs to admit that the show is obviously not about preventing teen pregnancy anymore ( it never should have been) , it about ratings.
