It’s a boy for 16 and Pregnant Season 2 couple Ashley Salazar and Justin Lane!
The couple announced that they welcomed their second child– a boy named Phoenix Roy– on Saturday morning. The baby weighed in at 6 lbs., 14 oz., according to an Instagram post made by Justin. Phoenix arrived ahead of his January 28 due date.
The couple– who have been on-and-off since their ’16 and Pregnant’ days– are also the birth parents of seven-year-old Callie. They placed Callie for adoption with Ashley’s aunt and uncle, but both Ashley and Justin are still very involved in her life. Ashley’s struggle with her decision to place Callie for adoption made her episode of “16 and Pregnant” one of the show’s most memorable.
Based on their recent social media posts, it appears that Ashley and Justin are not currently together.
Baby Phoenix is the first of many babies who will be born to “16 and Pregnant” girls in 2017. Season 2’s Chelsea Houska and Jenelle Evans are both due to give birth very soon, and Season 4 girls Sarah Roberts, Katie Yeager and Hope Harbert are all expecting babies in 2017. Briana DeJesus, who also starred on Season 4, recently announced that she is expecting her second child in July.
