Teen Mom & Teen Mom 2: The Complete Babies, Kids & Stepkids Guide!

The girls from Teen Mom are good at many things.

They’re good at creating reality show magic, whether it’s through their family or romantic trials and tribulations. 

Some of them have written books, or even tried to start music careers, or Cam Girl careers, and while none of those were actually good … well, it was nice that Farrah tried.

But we can probably all agree that the area where the Teen Moms really, truly excel is the baby-making area.

Because they have so. Many. Babies.

So many you may have forgotten about some of them, impossible as that seems. Can you name them all?

Here’s the full rundown! Find out!

1. Sophia (Farrah Abraham and Derek Underwood)

Oh, Soph. Unlike many of her Teen Mom tot counterparts, Sophia lives the life of luxury, thanks to her mother, non-porn star Farrah Abraham. Seriously, the younger Abraham has had her own clothing line, dabbles in child modeling, receives $900 when the tooth fairy pays a visit, and is even beginning her own music career. (Sophia’s father, Derek, died in a car accident while Farrah was still pregnant; Derek’s grave is the site of many memorable TM scenes, which some believe to be shamelessly orchestrated by Farrah). Sophia is going to be a handful when she grows up at this rate … the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as they say.

2. Leah (Amber Portwood and Gary Shirley)

Amber Portwood shares darling little Leah Shirley with her ex, Gary. Gary has custody, and he’s had it since Amber went to prison a few years back for all that domestic violence and drug stuff. Leah seems like a really smart, sweet girl, which is all thanks to Gary and his wife, Kristina — from what we’ve seen, Amber doesn’t spend a whole lot of time with her.

3. James (Amber Portwood and Andrew Glennon)

James glennon
Amber welcomed her second child, James, with Andrew Glennon in the spring of 2018. Their relationship survived about a year after that, because as it turned out, Amber still had a violent streak. She was convicted of assaulting Andrew in 2019, and after that, Andrew was given primary physical custody of James. Since then, he’s claimed that she’s been pretty flaky about the visits, but we don’t know too much more about it, since they’ve agreed not to put little James on the show.

4. Emilee (Gary and Kristina Shirley)

Gary shirley and family
Gary went on to have one child after leaving his disastrous relationship with Amber — he and his wife, Kristina, have a daughter named Emilee.

5. Carly (Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra)

When middle school sweethearts (and briefly step-siblings) Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the decision to give their baby Carly up for adoption, it marked one of the most touching, bittersweet moments in reality TV history. What made it all the more incredible was that they stayed involved in her life – albeit with some bumps in the road – ever since.

6. Nova (Catelynn and Tyler)

Tyler and Catelynn kept and are raising Novalee Reign Baltierra together, not that it’s been easy. Catelynn has struggled greatly with postpartum depression, leading to multiple inpatient stays at a psychiatric facility in Arizona.

Teen Mom OG Season 9 Trailer: "Why Do We Have Kids?!?"

Those who are old are about to be new again.

MTV has unveiled the first official trailer for Teen Mom OG Season 9, which the network says will air in a new year — with new hopes and new goals for all the main women involved.

“When you’re a mom, there’s never a moment to slow down – even if a global pandemic throws the world into chaos,” reads the MTV press release in promotion of Season 9.

Indeed, these upcoming episodes were filmed months ago.

But COVID-19 has been raging throughout 2020, meaning Amber, Catelynn, Cheyenne, Maci and Mackenzie will be dealing not just with the craziness of their personal lives…

… but with the outbreak of a deadly virus as well.

Continues the same press release:

So, the moms of “Teen Mom OG” are barreling forward and making major moves faster than ever.

Amber, Catelynn, Cheyenne, Maci and Mackenzie continue to share their most personal struggles and achievements leaning into the turmoil of today’s “new normal” with resilience and grit.

Through good and bad times, these women can always find the bright side for themselves and their kids.

The trailer says the long-time stars will “rise up” against the adversity, despite one young lady wondering — mostly in jest, we think — why the heck she had kids.

As for what Teen Mom OG fans can expect from each cast member?

Amber Portwood will contemplate moving onto Gary’s property after her relationship with her daughter Leah grows strained.

Catelynn Lowell will suffer a miscarriage and bravely shares her story to help others.

Cheyenne Floyd will rekindlee a romance with her ex-boyfriend Zach — and their relationship will escalate quickly.

It becomes even more real, the network teases, when they find out they’re expecting! EEEEK!

Maci will put her personal feelings aside to support Bentley when he takes the steps necessary to repair his relationship with his dad, Ryan.

And, finally, Mackenzie’s marriage to Josh will be crumbling… so she will make a drastic change and move her family to Florida for a business opportunity.

As we know, of course, this doesn’t exactly mean she’s done with her cheating husband.

Not by a long shot.

Teen Mom OG Season 9 premiere on January 26, 2021.

Check out the preview featured here to see what’s on tap.

And, specifically, to find out which star is convinced by her child that french fries dipped in milk might actually taste great.

Teen Mom Star Catelynn Lowell Gets Angel Tattoo In Honor Of Babies She Lost From Miscarriages

This is a very beautiful tribute. As we previously reported, Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra recently opened up about suffering a miscarriage in November. It was Catelynn’s second pregnancy loss, after experiencing another in 2017. On Friday, the reality star shared a quote on her Instagram page: “I still imagine what might […]

Catelynn Lowell: I Was Pregnant But I Had Another Miscarriage!

Catelynn Lowell has always been a Teen Mom favorite for a reason.

She’s just been through so, so much in her life, you really can’t help but root for her.

Starting from her very first TV appearance on 16 and Pregnant, fans have watched her deal with a remarkably difficult home life, and we’ve seen her make the incredibly selfless decision to place her first child for adoption.

We’ve watched her grow so much over the years, haven’t we?

That may be why it’s especially sad to hear such awful news like this …

1. Some History

Catelynn and tyler on their anniversary
OK, so Catelynn has been with Tyler Baltierra since they were in middle school, and they share two children, five-year-old Nova and one-year-old Vaeda.

2. Plus Carly

And of course they had another child together when they were teenagers, a little girl named Carly, but they placed her for adoption.

3. Oh No

If you keep up with Teen Mom news, then you’ll remember that back in 2017, Catelynn was expecting another child, but unfortunately she suffered a miscarriage.

4. Poor Cate

Catelynns new look
She’d been struggling with her mental health for a good few years at that point, and the miscarriage seemed to be the straw that broke the camels back — she said that she became extremely depressed and even began contemplating suicide.

5. Tough Call

Tyler and catelynn
She and Tyler decided it would be best for her to travel to an inpatient treatment center in Arizona so that she could get some help — she’d gone to the same facility the year before to get help with her depression.

6. Getting Help

She stayed for six weeks of treatment, then came home, and just a few weeks later she made the decision to go back to Arizona for another six weeks so that she could get more help.

Teen Mom: How Do They Make SO MUCH MONEY?!

One of the coolest things about being on Teen Mom is that you can totally make a lot of money for you and your family.

Like, a lot.

The moms and original dads of the MTV franchise make hundreds of thousands per season, if you can even believe it.

They also get to travel for free when filming, which is pretty neat since we’ve been seeing more vacations on the show.

At least in pre-Covid times. Anyway …

But besides the show itself, cast members are pulling in crazy amounts of cash from all kinds of wild and crazy places these days.

“Like where?” you may be wondering.

Well, wonder no further …

Not only do we have the freshest intel on how the Moms make their loot, we finally know exactly who’s the wealthiest.

So scroll on for the latest, and as a bonus you can enjoy the slow financial declines of Jenelle Evans. You know you’ve been waiting for this!

1. Dang

As we’ve said, the original cast members — the moms and the dads of their first children — all make the same amount, which is somewhere in the neighborhood of $350,000 to $400,000 a season. But what else does everyone do?

2. Jumping Right In

Before we get to HOW they make their money, let’s give you what you came here for: the info on how much the cast members are reportedly worth. Keep in mind that it’s difficult to know exactly what a celebrity’s net worth is, especially when you consider how much some of the Teen Mom crew spends in lawyer fees, but we’ll do our best, OK?

3. Jade Cline – $250,000

Jade is a newcomer, which means her salary isn’t as high as the other girls’. But she’s got some side hustles (like selling diet gummies), and she’s already attained a net worth of around $250,000.

4. Cheyenne Floyd – $450,000

Cheyenne is also one of the newer cast members, but at the time she joined the cast, she was already known to some fans from her appearances on Are You The One. Ms. Floyd is worth $450,000.

5. Jenelle Evans – $30,000

There was a time that Jenelle’s net worth was much, much higher — just a few years ago, it was reported to be around $2 million. However, more recent reports claim that she’s now worth about $30,000. This makes sense, considering she doesn’t appear on the show anymore and she and David Eason have burned through so much of her reality show fortune paying for lawyers and court fees.

6. Briana DeJesus – $750,000

Briana’s a born hustler. The combination of Teen Mom 2 stardom and multiple business ventures has brought her to a net worth of $750,000.

Yes, believe it or not, multiple outlets list Jenelle Evans’ net worth at half a million dollars. We find that hard to believe, especially since she appears to be broke as a joke these days. More on that later.
