“16 & Pregnant” Star Cleondra Carter Asks For Help Regarding Custody Battle

16 and pregnantFans watched as Cleondra Carter gave birth to her daughter, Kylee, on the third season of 16 and Pregnant, and were impressed at Cleondra’s ability to keep a level head and good attitude. Cleondra is probably best-remembered for taking care of her niece almost full-time (despite the fact that Cleondra was only a teen), because her sister wasn’t taking responsibility for her child.

Dr. Andy Baldwin (Former ‘Bachelor’) US Navy

In The Ashley’s opinion, Andy Baldwin was the perfect pick to be the ‘Bachelor’ because he had it all: good looks, intelligence (he graduated magna cum laude from Duke!) and is a US Naval Officer and doctor. (Kind of puts ol’ Juan Pablo to shame, no?) Andy founded the Got Your Back Network, an organization that helps honor the families of fallen soliders.
