When you get down to it, despite all of their accomplishments, difficulties, and drama, the Teen Mom cast is famous for one thing: Getting pregnant at a young age.
So it’s no wonder that sometimes, fans think the stars may get pregnant again just to secure their place on the show!
There are numerous motivations to have a child, but not all of them are good. Could this Teen Mom star who claims her pregnancy was accidental actually have gotten pregnant on purpose?
With Teen Mom being on air for as long as it has, it should be no surprise that numerous fan theories have evolved over the years. Many times, these theories are grasping at straws, or can’t be confirmed by any evidence by the cast members or the show itself… but it looks like one of the most extreme and shocking theories may have some basis in the real world.
Many members of the Teen Mom fan community have often discussed the possibility of a “baby bonus,” meaning that MTV executives bribed cast members with an under-the-table payment for every time they got pregnant. Many fans believed that this is the reason that so many of the girls have had multiple pregnancies over the years.
Although there was never evidence for this theory, one of the Teen Mom cast members recently confirmed that MTV has offered the girls extra money if they get pregnant.
He wrote, “Poor Amber had to get knocked up for [executive producer Morgan J. Freeman]’s financial gain! How sad! It’s like a breeding mill over at #TeenMomOG.”
He added, “In No means was this to attack Amber, I feel bad actually for what some of these people go through to satisfy Morgan’s needs.”
However, the newest Teen Mom mother-to-be doesn’t stand to gain anything from her pregnancy, since she’s not one of the main cast members!
Even though she isn’t one of the main Teen Mom cast members herself, Leah Messer’s sister, Victoria Messer, has had some crazy baby daddy drama herself.
