Plot Synopsis

In Season 2 of 16 AND PREGNANT, they were moms-to-be. Now, in this series 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: Leah, a former cheerleader and mother of twin girls, reaches out to her daughters' father when one of their babies is developing at a slower rate than her sister; Jenelle, unable to balance life as a mother and a teenager, gives her mother temporary custody of her son and enrolls in college classes; Chelsea, a former high-school softball star, moves into a place of her own with her BFF Aubree, enrolls in beauty school, tries to get her high-school degree online, and continues her tumultuous relationship with Aubree's father, Adam, because she wants her daughter to have a family with both parents in the picture; Kailyn juggles two part-time jobs, a full course load at a community college and raising her boy, Isaac -- all while living in the basement of her baby father's parent's house. TEEN MOM 2 returned for Season 3 on November 12, 2012 at 10pm ET/PT, as the four young mothers take on their biggest challenge yet -- raising children in their terrible twos. From a difficult divorce and an unexpected pregnancy to a young mom working through rehab and increasingly rocky relationships, the dramatic season catches up with Chelsea, Jenelle, Kailyn and Leah. This drama continued into Season 4, which debuted on Monday, February 18, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT, starting only two weeks after the Season 3 finale.

TEEN MOM 2 returned for its fifth season on Tuesday, January 21, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV, immediately following an all-day marathon (6am-10pm) of encore episodes. Kailyn is excited about her marriage to Javi and the upcoming birth of her second child; however, as she starts to build a life with her new family, the conflicts with her son Isaac's father Joe are far from over, and they continue to battle over custody and visitation rights. Chelsea is eager to begin a new chapter in her life as she starts beauty school, but the moment is bitter sweet as she faces the fact that Aubree is growing up and about to begin pre-school. Leah has her hands full with twins Ali and Aleeah and new baby Addie, and stress levels are heightened when Ali is diagnosed with a rare form of muscular dystrophy, which will likely get worse as she gets older and cause her to rely on a wheelchair. After a short stint in rehab, Jenelle's struggle with addiction continues to impact her decisions and every day is a battle -- her soon to be ex-husband is in jail and she has to make the most difficult decision of her life. On July 16, 2014, TEEN MOM 2 returned for the second half of Season 5, moving to a new night (same time): Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT on MTV. Jenelle is pregnant with her second child while dealing with her son Jace's developing behavioral problems and overcoming obstacles in her relationship with Nathan as he faces jail time. After buying her first home, Chelsea is eager to create a comfortable life for her and daughter Aubree. Just when she thinks she has everything figured out, The Department of Labor charges Chelsea with violating its protocol, forcing her to put her work life on hold. Leah and Corey continue to tackle co-parenting while coping with their daughter Ali's health issues. Emotions heighten when Ali becomes more aware of her condition and Corey's insurance declines their request for Ali's wheelchair. Now a mother of two, Kailyn is faced with the challenge of keeping her family together as she struggles to raise Isaac and baby Lincoln while her husband Javi is away at work.

But when her ex, Adam, returns to file for joint custody of Aubree, Chelsea's world and the life she has worked so hard for feels like it will come crashing down at any moment. After Jenelle had her second baby, Kaiser, and moved in with Nathan, she had the stability she has always wanted. But when she gets fed up with her mom Barbara's excuses not to let her see Jace, she decides to pursue regaining full custody of him. Kailyn has an explosive start to the season when Javi sees texts to a guy from school on her phone. Despite couples' counseling, they struggle to keep their marriage together as several arguments over jealousy bring them closer to divorce. Leah is feeling stress from all fronts.
