Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant star Kayla Sessler is officially a mom-of-two, as she gave birth to a baby girl over the weekend.
The reality star has already shared numerous photos of her new addition on social media. She and her boyfriend, Luke Davis, announced they named the baby girl Ariah Jordynn Davis. The little one was born weighing exactly 7 pounds and measuring 20 inches long at birth, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports.
While this is the first child for Luke, this is the second for Kayla, who shares 2-year old son Izaiah with her ex-boyfriend, Stephen Alexander. On the last season of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant, fans saw Kayla and Stephen get into a domestic dispute. He was subsequently arrested for assaulting her. Since then, Kayla has been candid via social media that Stephen has nothing to do with their son anymore. In fact, the toddler now calls her boyfriend Luke ‘Dad.’
Kayla shared a touching video of Izaiah meeting his new baby sister for the first time. In the sweet post, the toddler can be heard saying “I big brother!” as his grandmother holds him while he looks at the newborn baby.
Luke uploaded an equally moving post announcing the birth of his daughter in which he honoured his late grandmother. “15 years ago today I lost my grandmother and today I become a father to my baby girl,” he wrote alongside a photo of him, his daughter, and his mother. “Granny I know you smiling down on me and your great granddaughter Ariah Jordynn Davis.”
After announcing her pregnancy in February, Kayla received tons of questions via social media over whether her pregnancy was planned or not. The 20-year old revealed that it was a pleasant surprise. In fact, she said she’d been on birth control at the time of conception.
“Ladies! If you are on the pill and you get sick with the stomach flu or any other sickness that causes you to throw up, YOUR PILL IS NO LONGER ACTIVE!” she wrote on social media. “If you throw up within 2 HOURS of taking it. It didn’t have enough time to absorb into your body. You’re literally throwing up your birth control.” She also added that she’s planning on getting an IUD after giving birth.
At the time, the young mom also added that she and her boyfriend (who she’s been with for roughly a year) have talked about marriage, but they aren’t jumping the gun. “Eventually [we want to get married], but I’m not in a rush! I’d prefer for us to both finish college before getting married,” she explained. While Luke is currently enrolled in community college, Kayla is focusing on taking care of their young family.
The new season of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant still hasn’t been announced. But fans can be sure that they’ll be able to see more of Kayla’s pregnancy and birth story when it does.
