Most people will remember Kristina’s heartbreaking story on the season finale of 16 & Pregnant, Season 4. Her son’s father, Todd, drowned while they were swimming at a beach, and there were a lot of tears shed during her episode while viewers watched her try and cope with that loss and become a young mother at the same time.
Since her episode aired, Kristina has gotten married and had another child with her husband TJ. Her second child’s name is Tommie Joseph, although I believe they just call him Joseph. The second pregnancy shocked some people, and many wondered how she could move on and get married so quickly after her former fiancé’s death, let alone bring another child into the world when she was still coping with that whole situation.
On the “Where Are They Now?” special, we saw Kristina’s husband say some really mean things to her, accuse her of smoking marijuana, and threaten to divorce her and take their son away from her. She admitted that she had slept with someone else while the two were separated, and that it caused a strain in their relationship. It was quite an eye-opener, to say the least, and it really didn’t leave me with the sense that the relationship was anything near stable or that the marriage was going to last.
Apparently I was wrong, because Kristina and her husband are adding a 4th child to this family. The baby, a boy who is due in February, will be the couple’s second child together, and they each have a child from a previous relationship as well. The child that she is carrying is allegedly a boy who the young mother plans to name Layten. Kristina has hinted at a pregnancy a couple of times via her Twitter account, but has failed to post pictures of this pregnancy on social media, even though she documented the last two pregnancies that she had. The picture above was leaked to tumblr from Kristina’s private Facebook account, but she still has not commented on it.
Are you surprised at this pregnancy? As far as I know, Kristina will be the first girl in the history of 16 & Pregnant to have a third pregnancy and third child be born (she is not the first to have three children, as Leah (Messer) Calvert had the twins and baby Adalynn). The last season has given us more second pregnancies in the shortest amount of time than any other season. Kristina had her second child in January 2013, Sarah Roberts had her second in October 2013, and Jordan Howard, Myranda Trevino, and Mackenzie Douthit are all currently expecting their second children.
