“16 and Pregnant” Season 6 Stars Madisen Beith & Rachelle Perez Give Updates on Their Lives as Teen Moms, Their Relationship Statuses & More

“We’re still available for Teen Mom, MTV… just putting that out there.”

MTV recently checked in with Madisen Beith and Rachelle Perez, two of the moms featured on the new season of 16 and Pregnant, to find out what they have been up to since filming wrapped. 

The teen moms opened up about how motherhood has changed them, where their relationships are with their respective baby daddies, how their families are handling these changes and more.

On how things have changed for Madisen since filming the show: 

Madisen said since filming wrapped, she has settled into motherhood and “changed for the better.”

“ … [I’m] not necessarily a completely different person, but I feel like I have changed into a completely different me,” she said. “ … I’m happy where I am right now and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Now I have my own family. Whether me and [my daughter’s dad] Christian are together or not, I have my own family. I have my daughter. I have somebody that can help me through the hard times.”  

On her relationship with Christian: 

Madisen said she and Christian are “pretty much” working things out now and Christian has moved back in with her and their daughter, Camille. 

“So far, things are going pretty good,” she said. “We still kind of like argue basically every day, but it’s literally over just stupid BS, honestly. Nothing worth arguing over … I just think it’s going to take a while to build up trust.” 

Madisen added that Christian has stepped up and is helping out more with Camille.

On giving birth in the middle of a pandemic: 

Madisen gave birth to Camille the day before the hospitals “shut down” in March due to the pandemic, though she said she remembers hearing the doctors “literally talking about C0VID-19” while she was in labor.

That was comforting… “

Shortly after she arrived home from the hospital, Madisen said the “16 and Pregnant” crew received a call to return home due to safety precautions.

On her relationship with her mom: 

Madisen explained during her episode that her dad Nick raised her as a single dad, since her mom was “out of the picture.” After filming, Madisen said she did speak to her mom, “but it was kind of shut down” as her mom ended up calling Madisen names during the conversation. 

“I was like, ‘don’t talk to me no more,’” she said. “I’m not going to let you sit there and hurt my daughter like you hurt me, she does not deserve that. You know, she did not come into this world to deserve that, so I’m going to make sure she’s only surrounded by love and support.” 

On her relationship with her dad: 

Since becoming a mom, Madisen said the bond with her dad has gotten even stronger. 

Almost as strong as Nick’s beard game…

“I’ve always been a daddy’s girl and we’ve always been really close, but now I can be 150 percent honest with him and he will always be right there,” she said. “He’s not going to sit there and bash me, but he is going to tell me, ‘you shouldn’t do that, that was stupid.’”

On how things have changed for Rachelle since filming the show: 

It’s been two months since MTV checked in with Rachelle and in that time, Rachelle said her parents have “warmed up” to’ the idea of her being a mom to her daughter, Boston. 

“You’re a cute lil MTV paycheck, yes you are!”

“My parents, I think, got over it once Boston was here,” she said. “As much as they didn’t like me being pregnant, I think they just needed to see Boston in person for them to realize that she’s here no matter what. So the fact that I was a mom, they’ve accepted it and come to terms with it and now are supporting me.” 

On her relationship with Boston’s dad, Chase: 

“Sorry again for what I said about you not looking like me… “

Rachelle said she and Boston have moved back into the apartment with Chase and things are “better than before” because they argue less and have improved their communication. 

On the biggest misconceptions of being a teen mom: 

Rachelle believes the biggest misconception of being a teen mom is that you won’t get an education and are less likely to become successful.

“That obviously doesn’t apply to the cast of Teen Mom.”

“I think that’s completely false because I’m about to graduate college with my psychology degree and I still have Boston … ,” she said.

  1. My friend utilized the ability to get college credits while still In high school She graduated from High School AND already had her associates degree in nursing when she walked across the stage. So it’s possible this was something Rachelle was already pursuing way before having Boston.

    1. I graduated from college at 18 with a 2 year old working 80 hours a week to support her, it can be done! It’s hard as hell but so worth it for yourself and your child.

      1. WOW !!! Good for you.
        My best friend had a baby in 9th grade, and I watched her struggle.
        I could not have done it.

  2. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
    Rachelle is 20 so she could probably be close to getting an associates at this point.

  3. I know there are a LOT of people to hate in the Teen Mom franchise, but man, did Chase ever skyrocket up that list to settle near the top and we’ve only seen 40 minutes of him.

  4. Wasn’t Rachelle saying that she was finishing high school at the end of her episode. Since they talked about COVID, we know they filmed this spring. How did she get a college degree in a few months?

    1. Idk where you’re from & if there are schools like these where you live but here in NC (i know she lives elsewhere), there are these things called early colleges and it’s where highschoolers attend school on a community college campus. They get their high school diploma as well as credits towards their associates. They might get their associates at the same time, idk. But, maybe she was in one of those schools.

  5. Good for Rachelle getting her education, but it’s kinda weird she’s gonna be a psychologist yet she doesn’t realize that his bf is an abuser. Thextbook example of how abuse starts, first they isolate the victim ✔️, then destroy their remaining self esteem by verbal abuse ✔️, manipulate and control them ✔️, and finally the physical abuse. Hopefully it never gets to that, but girl should run.

    1. Could not agree with you more, I’m just now getting around to watch this episode. I’m 15 minutes in and yelling at the TV FOR her because she is so passive. He is a classic narcissist, hopefully she can apply that psychology degree to herself before she gets in deeper with this loser.

    2. I picked up on the 1st 3 from your list when I watched the episode too….the first like 5 minutes he was on the screen I was like this guy is trying to isolate her from her family, then at the end when she was clearly suffering postpartum depression and expressing her feelings, he was making it about him…somethings off about this guy.
