There were only six girls featured on the very first season of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant, four of which went on to become stars of Teen Mom. One of the other moms, Ebony Jackson (previously Ebony Jackson-Rendon), has had a rather tumultuous time since appearing on the show, but appears to have found a bit of stability with her new boyfriend James Baldrick–with whom she just welcomed her third child!
James posted to Instagram a sonogram taken in March, and revealed, at the time, that the baby was a girl and they planned on naming her Jaelyn Zoria Baldrick.
Little Jaelyn (assuming they stuck with the name choice) has since arrived, joining her older siblings, sisters Jayda, Jocelyn, and Esme. Jayda and Jocelyn are Ebony’s daughters and Esme is James’ daughter from a previous relationship.
Ebony and James haven’t said much on social media since the birth, but Ebony did share the photo of her three daughters together at the top of this post on Facebook. (H/T The Ashley’s Reality Roundup)
Congratulations to Ebony and James (photo above) — perhaps we will get to see more of Jaelyn on a new MTV 16 and Pregnant catch-up special soon!
