Teen Mom 3 Briana Dejesus and Katie Yeager on Good Morning America

Good Morning America welcomed two of the cast members from Season 4 of 16 & Pregnant to discuss the show and their lives this morning.

Katie Yeager, who will be featured tonight, and Briana Dejesus, coming up April 3, chatted up all things teen pregnancy including the different roles that their baby-daddys play in their lives and the struggles they face as young mothers.

Here is the full interview followed up by some highlights from the piece. I guess I aught to give a spoiler heads up as the girls do talk about their current situations.

GMA: How is life being a mom at age 17?

Katie: You don’t know what love is until you have a baby. It gets difficult sometimes. Sometimes you just get so overwhelmed. Like, you’re up to your head in diapers and you have homework and all.

GMA: We met Joey on the show. How are you two today and how is he with being a dad so young?

Katie: We’re great. He loves his daughter. He melts in to putty in her hands. I’m happy that he stepped up. Very lucky that he stepped up.

GMA: Briana, I know you have beautiful Nova Star and you are not together with the father Devon {sp?}. Where is he today in terms of parenting, offering any help? Are you getting anything?

Briana: No. He comes and goes as he pleases. It’s tough.

GMA: On the show we see your mom and sister really stepping up to the plate however it wasn’t easy for your sister. She too was pregnant and made a very different choice.

Briana: Yes. She made a sacrifice, she decided to get an abortion. I know she’s sad on the inside because like we’re grieving a life but we’re also trying to celebrate one.

GMA: You were willing to admit that you thought about life if you had made that choice.

Briana: Yeah. it’s like when I see my sister get up and go to school, go to work, do her thing it tears my heart because I can’t want this for myself. It’s hard to be so young and to do this on your own. Because I feel like I’m doing this on my own. So I see my life like that really could have been me. But something in my gut told me I’m strong I can do this. I love my daughter so I’m okay.

Amy Kramer with the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancies was on hand and she dropped some stats in regards to teen pregnancy. She said that a study shows that after a year following birth, more than half of teen moms don’t live with the father of their baby. More than 8 out of 10 aren’t married.

Katie revealed that she’s engaged to Joey and Briana stated that she’s starting college in the fall.
