"Hey look, ma! We match!"
Watch out, MTV! VH-1 is gearing up to present its own show about pregnant teenage girls…only for this show, the girls are bringing their [also pregnant] mamas!
Pregnant Mothers, Pregnant Daughters is currently casting mother and daughters who are both pregnant! The show, which is set to air this fall, will follow the teen moms and their moms as they go through pregnancy, labor and delivery and what happens afterward.
“The show will be from both the mother’s and the daughter’s point-of-view,” Sandra Philippeaux, the show’s casting director, said in an exclusive interview with The Ashley. “We are looking for all kinds of stories.”
The show is the brain-child of Ellen Rakieten, a former producer of the ‘Oprah’ show who also executive-produced NBC’s The Marriage Ref.
“I was reading an article that daughters of teenage moms are 66 percent more likely to become teenage moms themselves,” she said. “I kept thinking that there’s got to be some correlation—how fascinating [it would be] to take on the whole phenomenon of teenage pregnancy and throw in pregnant mothers.”
