16 & Pregnant season 3 girl, Izabella Tovar, has announced that she and her boyfriend of several years, Jairo Rodriguez, will be welcoming a new child into their family in November 2014. Izabella was the teen from Utah who spent the majority of her summer hiding her pregnancy. She eventually told her friends and extended family, and welcomed baby Enrique (whom they now call Henry) into the world in September 2010.
Izabella shared the news with fans on Instagram with the following picture of their son.
The chalkboard in this picture reads, “I’m so cute my parents are having another in November 2014.” While Izabella and Jairo are excited for their second baby, it seems like she knew that people would be criticizing her choices, so she captioned the photo with a long message. She wrote:
Jairo, Henry & I have a very big announcement to share. After weeks of contemplation we have finally decided to share this news. I AM PREGNANT! The reason it took me so long to share this is because I am not interested in hearing the negative feedback from negative people. But that is part of life and it is something I have learned cannot be avoided. I want to make clear that this pregnancy has been planned for years. Ever since Henry was born Jairo and I decided that we wanted our kids to be 4-5 years apart. Then in October of 2013 I was having complications with my IUD and it was taken out. Jairo and I then began talking about trying for another one. So, in February 2014 I became pregnant! We are THRILLED to announce that we are expecting our second bundle of joy in November of 2014. We are not sharing the gender or the name at this time. Please if you don’t support our decision to have another child, or if you have anything negative to say at all I ask that you unfollow me. I do not respond to negative feedback, I simply erase it and block the negative people. To those of you that support my family and me, I thank you. I hope you enjoy following my pregnancy journey! Sharing my pregnancy publicly is a new experience for me as you may know. I kept my first pregnancy a secret for 8 months. So I truly appreciate all the love and support I receive. Thank you in advance for your kind words.
Izabella and Jairo were engaged and planned to get married last summer, but due to unknown reasons, they called off the ceremony. While they are still engaged, there are no known plans on a wedding. Izabella and Jairo also still live in the same home as Izabella’s parents. There was talk of them getting a house to themselves, but nothing has been confirmed at this point. To top it all off, Izabella is still only 19 years old, which means that this is her second teenage pregnancy.
While many viewers have praised Izabella for her determination to go to college, her maturity throughout her episode, and her parenting abilities, I’m not sure that all of those people will be excited about a second pregnancy for one of the most respected couples to hit this franchise.
Izabella joins a handful of other season 3 girls who have gotten pregnant again, including Jordan Ward, Jamie McKay, Danielle Cunningham, and Jennifer Del Rio.
