Another baby is on the way for 16 and Pregnant Season 5 stars Summer and DJ Rewis. The couple has announced that Summer is expecting again!

Summer and DJ, who have been married since August 2013, are also the parents of son Peyton, who turns two this month. Summer broke the news of her pregnancy by posting a photo of Peyton, stating that he’s going to be a big brother.

In an exclusive interview with The Ashley, Summer talked about her pregnancy, and opened up about the negative reactions she has been receiving from the show’s fans since her pregnancy announcement yesterday. 

“We just found out,” Summer told The Ashley of the pregnancy, adding that she’s only about a month along.

Summer said that fans who watched her ’16 and Pregnant’ episode (which was filmed over two years ago) have criticized her and DJ for having another baby, which she says infuriates her.

“DJ and I are so happy and I just hate that people think they know how our lives are from one show,” Summer said. “It drives me crazy.”

Although Summer admitted that she and DJ weren’t planning to have a second child right now, she said that they are very happy about the news.

“Yes we are having another child, no it was not planned,” she said. We are nervous but excited. We have our own home and DJ has an amazing job.”

Last year, Summer and DJ almost split up due to DJ’s infidelity. Summer tells The Ashley that her marriage is much stronger these days.

“We’re two completely different people than we were a year ago,” she said. “DJ and I are doing amazing, and have been for quite some time now. This [new baby] isn’t to ‘fix our marriage.’ I’m just so annoyed with how we’re being put down for things that happened two years ago.”

Summer, appropriately, is due next summer.

  1. “we’re a month along” and she announces it to the WORLD? I guess she doesn’t think a miscarriage is possible. Summer, honey, 1 in 10 women suffer a miscarriage. I’m not trying to be a bitch before anyone jumps down my throat; i was 21 and joined the group of the unlucky ones, mine was at six weeks four days in 2011. I just don’t get people telling before at least 8-12 weeks.. But to each their own of course.


  2. people are just worried for you sweetie. dj was so mean on the show and especially on the follow-up. HE has a great job, but what about you? is it your plan to depend on him completely forever? it’s a risky plan. you’re not even 20 yet, you have years to have kids without doing it now. and ‘quite some time’ isn’t as long as you think in your childish mind. peyton’s just turning 2 and things were bad until he was at least one. what’s the rush with everything BUT an education?!


  3. Do they still have the pitbull that he just HAD to have before the baby was born or did they add to the endless pile of un-wanted dogs?


  4. There was a pic of her black eye and her saying he hit her in front of their kid a while back. Why is no one talking about that?


    1. I was thinking the same. On the where are they now special Dj was high…high! like Kieffa’ and Juhnelle. He seemed like an abusive jerk. Hope he went to get help and really changed…


      1. Yes they had some very public spats a year or two ago, like him cheating/ hitting her etc like some really troubling things and her posting pictures of bruises and then them fighting over it on Facebook. Of course people are concerned and have things to say. She’s so young, and then the older, more experienced people who have walked down that path aren’t buying that whole “Now life is a fairytale” story”.
