My Teen Is Pregnant & So Am I star, Chaé, was shocked to the core after discovering she was pregnant, but now her world is rocked even further as she struggles to come to terms with the fact that her long time boyfriend may not actually be the father of her newborn baby.
The 19-year-old opens up to her close friend about her heartbreaking situation in an upcoming episode of the TLC hit show, —and OKMagazine.com has an exclusive sneak peek.
The fact the teen is so surprised by the news may seem crazy to many—she was having unprotected sex, so she should have expected that she may get pregnant… right?
But, it’s not so clear cut as Chaé actually believed she was unable to conceive after having undergone surgery for pre-cervical cancer not so long ago—so she was floored to find out she was expecting.
Despite the pregnancy being unplanned, as soon as she heard the news, Chaé had no doubts about keeping the baby, even though she was going through tumultuous times with her longtime boyfriend, Austin, who had cheated on her in the past.
Complicating matters further Chaé’s mom, Lorna was also pregnant, with her fifth child, at the time her daughter found out she was expecting, and she is vehemently against Austin, wishing her daughter “could have picked a different baby daddy.”
Unfortunately, it seems mom’s wishes may have actually been realized, as Chaé tells her shocked friend about her baby daddy dilemma.
“Somebody I was seeing when me and Austin were broken up got in touch with me and said he feels like there might be a possibility that [baby London] might be his,” the teen says.
She goes on to explain that she was so desperate for Austin to be the father that she had ruled out the possibility of the other guy—Cole, being involved in any way.
“I kind of put that possibility right behind me,” Chaé admits. “Because I wanted Austin to be her father so much—that I was like, there’s no way—it can’t be possible, it can’t happen.”
However, Cole seems pretty certain he could be the baby daddy, and it seems that if he is he wants to be a part of his daughter’s life—causing many obvious dilemmas for poor Chaé who is hoping for a future with Austin, who believes HE is London’s father.
“I posted a picture of London online,” Chaé explains to her friend. “And [Cole] messaged me and was just saying that she looked a lot like him.”
“So… there is Cole and there is Austin… and literally either one of them could be London’s father right now?” Chaé’s friend asks.
