Cory Wharton may have a pregnant girlfriend now, but that’s not stopping his quest to get his mug on as many MTV reality TV shows as possible!
The Ashley hears that the Teen Mom OG dad touched down in Prague in the Czech Republic on Tuesday, along with the other reality TV stars who are set to appear on the upcoming 35th season of MTV’s The Challenge.
Cory recently announced that his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge (whom he met on— you guessed it!— an MTV reality show!) is pregnant. Last week, Cory told his followers that he’s thrilled to be able to spend Taylor’s pregnancy with her and go to her doctor’s appointments and ultrasounds, since he didn’t get to do that when his first baby mama, Cheyenne Floyd, was pregnant with their daughter Ryder.
“Just being there from the day she found out that she’s pregnant and knowing that it was mine, I knew that I was going to have to step up,” Cory recently told Us Weekly. “It’s exciting for me. It’s gonna be a lot, but I’m excited. I never went to an ultrasound, you know? I never went to the doctor’s appointments to see her check-ups and things like that. So for me, this is like my first baby almost, as weird as that sounds.”

I’ve been debating on what to say and how to exactly say it, And I found that I just want to talk from the heart quick. I’m excited to say that YES Taylor is pregnant!!!! 🤰🏼 Ryder is going to be a big sister, o boyyy 😂 I also wanted to let you guys know that we weren’t trying to have a baby right now, but sometimes God puts things into your life that you don’t really understand at the time but it’s always turns out to be a bigger blessing. I’m really excited to share this journey with you guys. All that I ask from you guys is respect for Taylor, respect for me and most importantly respect for the baby. All that I want is a healthy baby that is brought into a very positive environment and surround by good energy and love.The same way that I am raising Ryder. This is a very exciting time for mine and Taylor’s families. Never did I think by 28 I would have two children but here we are 😊 I know I probably didn’t answer everybody’s questions I’ll be going live today at some point. I also want everyone to head over to @usweekly listen to the interview that we did with them we answer a lot of your guys questions. Be safe my people love you guys and baby number two😁✌🏽
The Ashley’s ‘Challenge’ source tells her that Cory’s girlfriend Taylor was supportive of Cory’s decision to go on another season of ‘The Challenge,’ despite it meaning he will miss part of her pregnancy.
“She encouraged it because she’s hoping he can make enough money to buy a house,” the source told The Ashley.
If Cory makes it until the finale, he would be gone between six and eight weeks, the source said.
Cory will also reportedly be in the ‘Challenge’ house with two of his exes, according to the ‘Challenge’ sleuths on Vevmo. Aneesa Ferreira and Kailah Casillas are also appearing on Season 35.
