Former “16 and Pregnant” Stars Nikkole Paulun & Felicia Cooke Both Got Married This Weekend: See the Wedding Pics!

“For a wedding gift, feel free to give us a spot on ‘Teen Mom,’ MTV!”

Wedding bells were ringing this weekend, as two different girls from 16 and Pregnant got hitched to their longtime loves.

Felicia Cooke and Nikkole Paulun— who both starred on the second season of the MTV show back in 2010 (alongside the Teen Mom 2 cast)— celebrated their weddings over the weekend. Felicia got hitched on Friday, while Nikkole’s wedding was held on Saturday.

These are the first marriages for both Felicia and Nikkole.

Nikkole married Kyle Ledda, whom she became engaged to back in May. She announced the big news by posting a photo to her Instagram account, along with the caption, “Married my best freakin friend– July 18, 2020.”

Photos showed her son, Lyle— whom she gave birth to during her “16 and Pregnant” episode– dressed up for the ceremony. She later posted videos of the celebratory dinner held after the ceremony.

Nikkole and Lyle…

On Saturday, she revealed via Instagram Stories that this wedding will not be their only one.


“We eloped! We’re planning our big, dream wedding for 2022 (hopefully) but with how crappy this year has been we really wanted to come out of it with something good to remember,” she wrote. “And we really just didn’t want to wait years to be married to each other.”

This was the third engagement for Nikkole, but marks the first time she’s actually gotten married.  She was previously engaged to Lyle’s father, Josh Drummond (which, like pretty much everything related to Josh, did not work out). In 2014, she announced she was engaged to the father of her daughter Ellie. Although they were scheduled to get married in October 2014, they never made it down the aisle and instead broke up. 

Nikkole has been dating Kyle for several years. In August 2019, Nikkole and her kids moved in with him. Last month, she revealed that she suffered a miscarriage, right before she and Kyle planned to announce the pregnancy. 

Nikkole received congratulatory messages from her former “16 and Pregnant” Season 2 co-stars Kail Lowry and Leah Messer, as well as Ashley Salazar, who wrote, “OMGGGG! Congrats. You are beautiful!”

As for Felicia’s nuptials, it appears they took place at the Lucky Spur Ranch in Justin, Texas. Felicia married her longtime boyfriend Jose Garza, whom she has been dating since 2017 and became engaged to back in December 2019. Both of Felicia’s children by her ex, Alex Gutierrez— daughter Genesis, who was born on “16 and Pregnant,” and daughter Giselle— participated in the wedding as flowergirls. Felicia’s nearly one-year-old son with Jose, Greyson, served as the ring bearer.

On Saturday, Felicia posted a series of wedding photos to her Instagram page, as well as a message for her new husband.

“On this day, I choose you for life. I promise to be faithful to you, I promise to love you, to commit to you and support you,” she wrote. “You have shown me what true love feels like, and for that I thank you. You are everything I need, and at this moment I know God had answered all my prayers. I love you always and forever DIPS**T! #TheGarzas.”

Felicia has kept a much-lower profile than Nikkole has in the years since appearing on MTV. In fact, back in 2013, Felicia stated that she felt going on “16 and Pregnant” was the “worst mistake” of her life.

  1. Congrats to Felicia. She looks gorgeous and very happy.

    Go fuck yourself Nikkole. What you did with faking the stillbirth was disgusting. #neverforget

    1. I’m so glad I’m not the only one who remember that. She has like 100k followers on Instagram and it’s gross that anyone would look up to her level of crAzy.

  2. Felicia looks beautiful and her caption was gorgeous… until she called her husband dipshit ? uummm that’s not cute or classy, girl.

    Nikkole… drama queen. Who tf cares

  3. Nikkole, step away from the spray tanner! Seriously, you would look better if you dialed it waaaaay back.

    1. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
      That’s actually not Nikkole, it’s her best friend.

  4. It’s a compliment to Felicia that I don’t remember her. I only remember the crazy ones from 16 and Pregnant.
    *COUGH* Nikkole *COUGH*

  5. I always feel a little off when one of the girls who was only on the show once a decade ago says how much they regret it, then still see articles about them and pictures of their kids like they still have to pay this huge price for their mistake. Then again I’m also the hypocrite here reading this so what do I know?

  6. I don’t remember Felicia. Nikkole is still pretty but I gotta wonder about Kyle. Why would a guy wanna get tied down to a woman who has two baby daddies and one of them is a complete psycho.

  7. Please, no more posts about Nikkole, she is very troubled and extra thirsty for attention. From the second I heard her fake baby-voice on 16&P I knew something was off about her and she’s only proven over the years that she is just a nut. It’s the classic case of the chicken or the egg that applies to so many of the girls associated with 16&P ant TM, were they thirsty and damaged before they got the exposure from the show or did the show make them that way.

    1. I’m voting “damaged before”.
      Most,including the “””faves””” we’re so beyond damaged as teens that something inside them thought “wow, lets let this guy get us pregnant”.

      Kail had already had an abortion before Isaac. Leah had been abused. Caitlyn, her story is sad. God knows what Farrahs story is. Amber had lost a sister and that tore her family apart. And even Chelsea really thought that having a baby would keep A-D-A-M around.


  8. Felicia looks unrecognizable… i had to keep looking at the pic from the 16 and Pregnant and forgetting what she looked like.

    Nikkole is also unrecognizable from her episode, but she pops up all the time with her wacko drama, so I knew who she was ?
