Plot Synopsis

In 16 AND PREGNANT, they were moms-to-be. Now, they must face the realities and challenges of life after childbirth: marriage, relationships, family support, adoption, finances, graduating high school, starting college, getting a job, and moving out to create their own families. This series follows four young women: Maci, a classic teenage overachiever -- popular, athletic, and successful in school -- who had big plans to go away to college and have fun with her friends and her boyfriend Ryan; Farrah, a high-school cheerleader turned single mom, who lives at home with her mom and raises her daughter Sophia without her baby's father in the picture; Catelynn, a smart and funny high school Senior who, along with her boyfriend Tyler, chose adoption, even though their own parents strongly disapproved; Amber, a self-declared teenage party girl who dropped out of high school to stay at home and care for her baby Leah while her fiancee, Gary, works 12-hour days to support the family. TEEN MOM returned for a new season on Monday, March 23, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV. This new season, TEEN MOM OG, features the original girls, Amber, Catelynn, Farrah and Maci, picking up a few years after the cameras were turned off. In a first for the TEEN MOM franchise, TEEN MOM OG breaks the fourth wall, pulling back the curtain to reveal their relationships with the producers and crew, the challenges of raising children on camera, and how life in the public eye has shaped them as parents and people. Each episode gives an unprecedented look into these young mothers' lives and how they're facing the responsibilities of parenthood as their children enter kindergarten, start little league and reach other milestones of youth. The season opens with these young women at a new stage in their lives as parents. Newly released from prison, Amber is trying to raise her daughter Leah with her ex, Gary, who is expecting a baby with his new girlfriend. Meanwhile, she is attempting to navigate a life of sobriety while diving back into the world of dating. Catelynn and Tyler find out that they're expecting a baby of their own as they struggle to mend a strained relationship with the adoptive parents of their daughter, Carly. Farrah continues to juggle parenting Sophia while trying to mend relations with her own mother, Debra. Plus, Farrah finds love in a long distance relationship for the first time since the death of Sophia's dad. Maci finds love with her new boyfriend, Taylor, who recently moved to Tennessee to be with her. Soon after his arrival, the couple finds themselves dealing with an unexpected pregnancy. Meanwhile, she continues attempting to co-parent Bentley with Ryan who makes everything extremely challenging.
