Oh, the Snapchat drama! When MTV first premiered the show 16 and Pregnant in 2008, they didn’t know what a juggernaut it would become. The original reality TV series, which spotlighted teenage girls dealing with unplanned pregnancies, has since launched two spin-off shows Teen Mom (now known as Teen Mom OG) and Teen Mom 2. Most importantly, the shows made celebrities out its leads such as Jenelle Evans, Catelynn Lowell, Amber Portwood and Farrah Abraham, and naturally, Snapchat is one of the ways they love to express themselves.
They regularly Snapchat their growing families with cute vids of the kid, puppy-dog earred or flower-wreathed photos and the ever-popular face swapping. They also show off their new hair styles or rock some deadass sexy poses. And yes, they spill some tea every once in awhile, responding to whatever backlash is aimed at them or commenting on a feud they might be engaged in at any given time. In other words, a typical Friday.
1. Catelynn Lowell Baltierra

2. Maci Bookout McKinney
Snapchat Username: unknown
Why follow? While Maci Bookout is definitely on Snapchat, judging from her Instagram pics with all those fun filters, as of now, the Teen Mom OG‘s Snapchat name has remained private. Ah well, maybe she’ll let fans know at some point because you can bet she’s snapping away with her cute kids, son Bentley (with ex high school boyfriend Ryan Edwards), daughter Jayde and son Maverick (her two children with husband Taylor McKinney).

She posts many sexy pics of herself, while also showing sweet videos with her daughter, Sophia. Farrah likes to push the envelope and keep her fans on the edge of their seats, like when she Snapchatted while at the OBGYN office, getting her IUD replaced. TMI, much?

The West Virginia country girl of Teen Mom 2 fame has had her fair share of ups and downs since having twin girls as a teenager, especially after her daughter, Aliannah, was diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy.

8. Amber Portwood
Snapchat Username: realaportwood
Why follow? Teen Mom OG staple Amber Portwood is another fiery former pregnant teen just too colorful not follow. Her run-ins with exes, as well as the law (she even went to prison for over a year for drug possession), pepper her personality—and she’s not afraid to speak her mind. She’ll post snaps of her cute-as-a-button daughter Leah and her Forever Haute makeup line, but Amber will never be called boring. She may take hiatuses from posting on social media to gain “peace,” but no doubt she’ll be back snapping in no time.
