Jamie McKay, who starred on the third season of 16 and Pregnant, surprised her social media followers today when she revealed that she and her longtime boyfriend Ryan McElrath recently welcomed their second child! While the couple was very public about Jamie’s first pregnancy with their four-year-old daughter Miah (she had the baby on national TV, after all!), they decided to keep the second pregnancy very quiet. In fact, Jamie never even announced on her social media accounts that she was pregnant!
In an exclusive interview with The Ashley, Jamie revealed that she and Ryan welcomed their baby boy, whom they named Mason, on October 25.
“I wouldn’t trade my babies for anything,” Jamie said, adding that she and Ryan are doing well. “He has been such a big help.”
Jamie had a difficult pregnancy the second time around.
“With Mason, I had a lot of pain,” she said, adding that she had to leave work at 32 weeks.
“I was dilated and at the time I was having contractions!” she said.
Luckily, everything turned out OK for Jamie and for Mason, who was born healthy. Jamie and Ryan are still adjusting to life with two kids, and, although Ryan is fine with stopping at two, Jamie isn’t so sure.
“Ryan says no more but I wanted more kids so there’s still a possibility!” she said.
