Chloe Patton, Megan Salmon Ferrari, Mia Boardman, and Naomi Konickova are bringing the babies and the English accents to the Teen Mom franchise with a UK version of the show that MTV is referring to as Teen Mum. Get to know the new girls and their babies.
Naomi has a little girl named Kyanna, who she calls Kya. This girl became a mother at 17 and she works as a makeup artist. She’s a bit reserved and a proud feminist, who wants to succeed and not fall prey to teen mom statistics. Naomi Konickova said that when she and her baby daddy Raphael Poitou revealed to her mother that she was pregnant, her mom took off her shoe and hit them both with it. The show has already aired in the UK and in gearing up for a second season, Konickova apparently decided to take a step back from the spotlight, telling MTV UK:
I wanted to take a break from Teen Mom UK series two because I really feel like I need to focus on my career and really try to build a future for Kyanna … I would so come back for another series, I’d love to. I’ve got so much of my life to share and you definitely haven’t seen the last of me.
So, it looks like Naomi Konickova’s departure is just for now.
Megan Salmon Ferrari
Megan has a baby named Mckenzie and she became a parent at age 17, along with her baby’s father Dylan. This season on the show, the young mum has a lot on her plate and is filled with emotions. When she became pregnant, she became more independent and decided to move into a caravan with her new baby. But, motherhood isn’t the only issue she faces on the show. In a clip from the show, Megan asks her ex Dylan how he could sleep with her best friend and then ask her to marry her? In November 2016, The Sun reported that Megan was pregnant with her second child and the father is believed to be ex Dylan. Megan’s mother Sonia has weighed in on her daughter’s lifestyle and said that:
She’s on benefits, and that is not something I never wanted for her. All this breaks my heart. I wanted better for her.
Megan says she does not have regrets.
Mia is a mother-to-be and is currently pregnant on the show. Clearly, she has given birth because MTV UK has a photo of her and daughter Marliya on their site. Mia is said to be very upbeat on the show and wanted to be a singer before she became a mother at 19 years old. She’s involved in some unconventional family dynamics this season and she also “deals with” her boyfriend Manley’s daughter from a previous relationship.
Chloe’s man in her life is her baby boy Marley and the baby’s father is named Jordan. She became a mum at just 17 years old and her bio on MTV UK reads:
Chloe and boyfriend Jordan admit they didn’t plan on starting a family so young, but the pair are navigating the journey of teen parenthood together. But it’s not all plain sailing for this young couple as Chloe shares her story of overcoming the baby blues on the show, as well as maintaining relationships with friends and family. Before becoming a mum, Chloe wanted to be an actress – but her aspirations have been put on hold to raise little Marley.
Though Chloe loves her son, she has admitted that she wishes she had waited to become a mother.
Previously, a girl named Amber Butler and her baby Brooklyn were reported to be cast members on the show, but they are not shown in the USA TV show’s trailer, so we are guessing that they were cut from the cast. In footage and promotional photos, we have seen Butler featured as a major player on the show.
