Hospitalized “16 and Pregnant” Dad Eric Kennemer Suffers Major Setback in Recovery

It’s been nearly a month since 16 and Pregnant dad Eric Kennemer was critically injured in a car accident in Texas and, while the former reality TV dad was making great progress, he’s apparently suffered a major setback in his recovery.

On Sunday, Eric, who starred alongside his now-wife, Myranda Trevino, on the fourth season of ’16 and Pregnant,’ was released from the Texas hospital he’s been at since the accident. But only a day later, Myranda told friends and family on her Facebook page that Eric was back in the ICU.

His mother revealed on Facebook that Eric had suffered a stroke from “bleeding in the brain.”

No other information on his condition is currently available.

Last month, Eric’s mother set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to help Eric, Myranda and their two young daughters while Eric is recovering from the accident. To date the page has raised just over $1,700, but it appears that donations are needed now more than ever, as Myranda indicated on Facebook that the family’s insurance is not paying for Eric’s home healthcare or outpatient care.

Eric and Myranda are one of the few couples from ’16 and Pregnant’ who stayed together in the years since the show. After the birth of their daughter Kaylee was featured on a 2012 episode, the couple got married and welcomed daughter Ryleigh in 2014.

    1. It’d be more appropriate for MTV to donate to Eric, not the Teen Moms. They don’t know Eric and it’s kind of crappy to expect or guilt them into contributing. MTV is who profited off their story.

    1. If you look through the donations, he actually donated twice. $250, then $200. That’s nothing in terms of how much money he makes, but who knows if MTV reached out or not.

    2. Many people are named Morgan Freeman, it’s probably Morgan J. Freeman who is a producer affiliated with Teen Mom. He probably didn’t add “J” because it’s his personal account which means he doesn’t have to use his professional name to differentiate(showbiz name registry.)

  1. I can’t imagine what that must be like. Going from carefully thrilled because your husband or son has been released from the hospital to worried and scared within possibly 24 hours.
    Wishing them the best.
    This is so sad, one of very few couples to have their life, family and priorities together and this happends to them.
    I hope the cast members who where more financially fortunate will help their co-worker as well.

  2. I just rewatached their episode the other day and was curious to how he was doing. So sad to hear about his set and wish him a speedy recovery.

  3. Everyone with a good and kind heart, please give what you can to help. This is a heartbreaking situation.
