The Teen Mom cast has shown us several different sides of teenage pregnancy and motherhood. No two stories are the same, and although many fans argue that the show doesn’t represent what real teenage motherhood is like because the stars have become so wealthy, the early days of their struggles show a more authentic experience.
Now, one of the cast members is peeling back the curtain on her own personal issue: she’s not entirely sure who the father of her child is. And even though she thinks it’s between two guys, fans think it could be three!
Because of the constantly-changing Teen Mom casts, MTV’s newest addition to the franchise, Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant will also be welcoming some new faces with its upcoming season.
The two new girls, Rachel Beaver and Kiaya Eliott, are bringing unique new storylines to the franchise. And in a recent preview, Rachel revealed that she’s not entirely sure whose child she’s pregnant with.
“I’m Rachel,” she spilled in the preview for the new season, which debuts on October 22nd. “I’m eight months pregnant.”
She went on, “This is Drew, my ex and my baby’s father… At least, that’s what I think! Because I’ve been on and off with him and his best friend Jacob, Drew isn’t convinced that the baby is his, and hasn’t even been there for me at all.”
And, since it’s Teen Mom, of course it’s a little more complicated than that. Rachel spills: “When I first found out I was pregnant, I had hoped Jacob was the father.” In a conversation with her friend, Rachel reveals, “We thought she could have been Jacob’s because they kept changing my conception date and all that… [I told Jacob] I’m sorry I even led you on to think you had a possibility, but she’s not yours.”
She adds, “Jacob can’t stand the fact that I’m having a kid with his best friend, and he just doesn’t want to get attached. He’s had me blocked for almost a month now, and I don’t think he’s coming back.”
Rachel also reveals that she doesn’t have high hopes for Drew, who she thinks is her child’s father.
“I hope that when the baby is born, Drew will step up. But it’s not looking good.”
This is Rachel. She has a lot of questions, and is waiting for answers. 🤞

Meanwhile, Rachel is in a relationship with another man named Koty in the present day. Fans went wild on reddit and are excited about the amount of drama that Rachel’s storyline promises.
“I just found it interesting that she mentioned the two dudes she thought could be the baby’s dad were named Drew and Jacob. She said she hoped it was Jacob’s because he would be more involved. No sign of either of them on her page. This dude’s name is Koty and… yeah… he looks like a winner,” wrote reddit user SpiritualCamera. User phaedraine wrote, “Only DNA knows the truth.”
As far as Kiaya is concerned, her storyline is equally complicated. In fact, the father of her child is currently in prison on multiple charges.
