A recent photo of Danielle and her family.

A lot has happened since Danielle Cunningham appeared on MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. We first met the Ohio native in 2011 during the third season of the controversial reality show, which she was 16 and pregnant with her first child, Jamie Jr.

Her episode, which dealt with the drama between her and her baby’s father, Jamie Alderman, was one of the most intense to date.

Since we last saw her on our televisions, Danielle, now 19, has had her share of ups and downs. The young mom has dealt with drug addiction, conflict with both her mother, Casey, and her baby-daddy Jamie, and even been arrested for assault. In June, she welcomed her second child, a daughter named Jayleigh. While life with two young children has been very hard for Danielle, she says that she has finally managed to get her life back together.

16 and Pregnant

Meet Danielle’s second child, Jayleigh!

It’s a girl for 16 and Pregnant Season 3 star Danielle Cunningham!

The 19-year-old went into labor late last night and gave birth to her daughter, whom she named Jayleigh Rae, early this morning. Jayleigh weighed in at 6 lbs, 1 ounce!

Danielle, who is also mother to 2 1/2-year-old Jamie Jr., got pregnant last fall by Jamie Alderman, who also fathered her first child. Jamie and Danielle are no longer together, and Jamie is seeing another girl.

Unfortunately, Danielle’s mom, Casey Cunningham, who we met on Danielle’s ’16 and Pregnant’ episode, missed the birth because she was away on vacation in Alabama and was unable to get a flight in time.

This Week In…’16 and Pregnant’ Girl Bump Watch

16 and pregnantIt’s no secret that the girls of 16 and Pregnant are Fertile Myrtles. Of the 47 girls that have been featured on the show, at least 11 have gotten pregnant within five years of giving birth to their first child. Of course, not all of the girls have ended up giving birth: some have chosen to get an abortion, while others miscarried their babies.

Anyway, it seems that every other month, another ’16 and Pregnant’ or ‘Teen Mom’ girl is announcing that she’s once again with child. It’s hard to keep track, so The Ashley has created this “Bump-o-Meter” to track the progress of the pregnancies. (Yes, I need a life. Yes, I need help. Yes, we shouldn’t care about this crap, but we do!)

From the least-pregnant to most likely to pop at any moment:

"Looks like we better get out the maternity clothes!"

In the past week, two more girls from MTV’s 16 & Pregnant have revealed that they have gotten pregnant again after appearing on the show. Danielle Cunningham of Season 3 took to her Facebook page a few days ago to share her big news with fans of the show.

“Yes, I’m almost four weeks [pregnant]” Danielle confirmed to The Ashley. She found out when she went to the doctor to go get birth control. (So much for that!) She is due at the beginning of July.

Jamie Alderman, the father of Danielle’s first child, Jamie Jr., is the father of this baby, Danielle’s mother, Casey, told The Ashley. Still, Casey is shocked to say the least.

“We have known but needed time to process it…I guess I cant change anything so I will be happy,” she told The Ashley. (Click here to read more about Danielle’s second pregnancy.)

EXCLUSIVE: “16 & Pregnant” Star Danielle Cunningham Explains Recent Arrest

16 & Pregnant

"Mugging" for the camera

Earlier this week reports surfaced that 16 & Pregnant Season 3 star Danielle Cunningham had been arrested for domestic violence. Danielle, the mother of baby Jamie, was arrested in Licking County (hahaha, Licking), Ohio, for allegedly pushing her elderly grandmother during an argument.

The whole story seemed fuzzy to The Ashley so she decided to go straight to the source and get Danielle’s version of what happened last Saturday. Of course, there are two sides to every story, and since The Ashley wasn’t in Licking County (hahahah, I’m sorry, but it’s funny every time), she can’t say for sure what really happened. However, this is Danielle’s account of the events.

’16 & Pregnant’ Season 3 Girls: Where Are They Now?

Note: The Ashley recently updated this story, which was first published in June of last year. The girls’ lives have changed a lot since we last saw them. MTV will air the Season 3 “Where Are They Now?” Special tomorrow night!

The Ashley has spent the last few months covering the very dramatic third season of 16 & Pregnant. Between the domestic violence, the crack-addict mothers and the verbally abusive baby-daddies, this season was jam-packed with TMZ-esque drama. (A few of the girls even made their way onto the gossip site! Congrats, gals!)

That being said, a lot has changed since the MTV camera crews left the homes of these girls.

Where Are They Now?

Jordan Ward:

The Ashley recently gave you guys an update on what’s changed for Jordan since her episode was filmed. (Click here to read it!) Jordan’s life has changed even more since that update. She moved to California to live with her husband on base and gave birth to her second child in November, a girl named Ari Monroe.


Jennifer Del Rio:

Oh, Jennifer. Of all the girls from Season 3, Jennifer  received the most attention from TMZ (an honor I’m sure she’s thrilled about.) She and her baby-daddy Josh went from engaged to beating each other up on her episode. They’ve each been arrested since the show, and Jennifer took the couple’s twins and went into hiding for months, not telling Josh where they were.

It was later discovered that Jennifer was in Illinois, which is where she and the twins have been living for the past year. She’s currently enrolled in her first semester of college.

According to her personal blog, Jennifer is often asked if she is still with her baby-daddy, Josh, to which she says, “No, Josh and I are not together. We are civil and happy the way we are. Just because I was on TV and in the media doesn’t mean that the world has to know everything. So, I will not mention why Josh and I decided to go our separate ways and I will not discuss if we are seeing other people.”
