After some seriously rocky and even detrimental relationships in their past, many of the Teen Mom cast members have finally found the one. From Chelsea and Cole to Jenelle and David to Catelynn and Tyler, many of the cast members have walked down the aisle with their “the one,” deciding on forever. However, if reality TV has taught us one thing, it’s that marriages don’t always last.
Even though this couple seemed to be a perfect match for one another at first, it’s clear that they simply weren’t meant to be. Now, after rumors of separation and divorce, the truth of what went down between them is finally coming out, and it’s not pretty.
For now, it seems that many of the Teen Mom cast members are safe from the looming threat of divorce. Jenelle and Chelsea both celebrated their weddings this season, and there are many long-standing marriages like Maci and Taylor and Catelynn and Tyler. It seems that much of the cast have found happiness in their relationships, but the same can not be said for one 16 and Pregnant star.
Izabella Tovar appeared on the third season of 16 and Pregnant, and found herself pregnant at the age of only 15 by her boyfriend Jairo. Together, they welcomed their first child Enrique, and another daughter Anatazia in 2014. Finally, they got married in 2016.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before rumors of trouble in paradise began to stir about this couple. By the time fans noticed that Izabella was posting fewer pictures of Jairo, they were already split. A few months later, she confirmed the theories.
“There have been a lot of assumptions recently so I figured it was time to clear the air,” Izabella shared on Instagram. In the image, she stands, holding a sign that reads, “So, I close my eyes to old ends and open my heart to new beginnings.”
“Jairo and I are separated and have been for a few months now,” she went on. “Unfortunately our marriage didn’t work out and we are getting divorced… We wish each other the best and are working on our co-parenting relationship.”
However, unlike many of her 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom co-stars, Izabella has decided to keep this part of her life private from the public eye.
“There are many factors that went into this decision but none that need to be shared publicly at this time,” Izabella wrote. “Even though I am sharing this publicly it is still a very personal decision… Thank you in advance for understanding.”
Users on Reddit were disappointed at the news, but were nonetheless understanding. “That’s sad because they were one of the only 16&P couples still together but not surprising. People change a lot between the ages of 15 and 25,” wrote user forgivedaddy. “I’m glad they’re getting a divorce if it will make them happier and more attentive parents.”
Many fans criticized Izabella’s decision to post a photoshoot to announce her divorce, but some understood. User Pmar07 wrote “I really like her picture. She’s taking the next chapter of her life to be filled with happiness and positive changes. I really don’t see any issue with it.”
