Exclusive! ’16 & Pregnant’ Star Lori Wickelhaus is Engaged–and Pregnant Again!

16 and pregnant

Congrats to Lori and Joey!

She’s remained one of the most-private girls ever to appear on 16 and Pregnant, but Season 2 star Lori Wickelhaus has some big news! She recently became engaged to her boyfriend, Joey and….the couple is expecting their first child, The Ashley can exclusively report!

Lori, who during Season 2 gave her baby, Aiden, up for adoption in one of the most heartbreaking episodes ever, has gone through her share of struggles since taping her episode.

While she has remained in contact with her son, and gets to see him frequently thanks to her open adoption, she has had a hard time processing it all. Although it was not reported, Lori fell into a deep depression after the episode and, as she put it, “fell into a downward spiral.”

“I had no dreams, I had no goals, I didn’t care what happened day to day,” she said in the video below, which was filmed after her episode. She later went to live at a transitional program for young adults in West Virginia and turned her life around.

After graduating from the program, Lori met Joey and in January they began dating. Joey proposed this summer and now Lori is reportedly at least halfway through her pregnancy!

Lori no longer has any contact with Cory, her son Aiden’s birth father. To learn more about Lori’s life after ’16 and Pregnant,’ click here.

    Sounds like an accidental pregnancy and the result is engagement…she didn’t learn anything. Hopefully at least she is older now and is able to take care of the baby on her own, without support of parents or boyfriend. I know her parents pressured her into adoption but it was the best thing for her son and her. Because if she did have her son…her parents or the state would be supporting both of them and she might of been a highschool drop out like majority of pregnant teens. I hope it works with her and her fiance. Good Luck.

    I don’t believe she ever really wanted to give her son up for adoption. She was pressured heavily by her parents to relinquish, and I felt so bad for her, because I could tell that she wanted to parent her son. When coerced into relinquishing, depression is the #1 the Birth Mother deals with. I know. I was one of them. I wish her and her fiance’ the best. Congrats to them.

  3. Lori pregnant? Again? New Faince? She has Aidan late 2009 like Ashley S and Leah C. and many more.
