There’s another baby on the way for one of the teens on the reality TV show Teen Mom 2. Megan Nelson, 18, who has appeared on the show as best friend and former roommate to star Chelsea Houska, is pregnant and expecting a son on July 7, Life & Style reports.
Megan witnessed her best friend Chelsea, 19, struggle with teen pregnancy. But now Megan, who’s expecting with her boyfriend of four months, is sharing her journey on Facebook and Twitter. “I’ve always wanted a boy first,” Megan wrote.
MTV says she will not become a series regular and friend Danielle Jamie agrees. “Megan does not want to be on Teen Mom or any other reality TV show,” Danielle says. “She wants the baby to live a normal life. She’s nervous and excited about being a mother. Chelsea was shocked — but she’s excited for Megan too.”
Chelsea, mom to 18-month-old Aubree, had hoped her appearances on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 would help warn her friend, but Megan is now the third of Chelsea’s friends to become a teen mother. “Having a baby is really life changing,” says Chelsea, who talks about the importance of birth control. “Wait till you’re married and have a stable career to bring a baby into the mix.”
