Are They Actually Teenagers? Here's How Old the 'Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant' Cast Is


When 16 & Pregnant made its debut in 2009, nobody really could have guessed how fascinated the American public would be with seeing the lives of teenage mothers. The show was the beginning of a new kind of empire for MTV: young women dealing with custody issues, relationship turmoil, and balancing new motherhood all before hitting the age of 20. 

The ages of the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant cast might surprise you.

Some of the most compelling young women on the show went on to star in Teen Mom OG and Teen Mom 2, and now, the show is back in a slightly different format: Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. But are the women on the show actually teenagers? Read on to find out the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant cast member ages.

Ashley is the only cast member on this list who was technically in her 20s when she gave birth to daughter Holly with ex Bariki "Bar" Smith. Her relationship to Bar has been one of her main storylines, as the two have broken up and gotten back together multiple times on the show. The once-engaged couple has officially split (Ashley claims that it's for good) and the two are focused on co-parenting their 2-year-old girl.
