Former ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’ Star Kayla Jones Welcomes Second Child

“Your loss, MTV! You could have gotten footage of me in the stirrups shooting this kid out!”

It’s (another) girl for former Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant mom Kayla Jones.

Kayla— who appeared on the show’s third season— gave birth to a baby girl on Monday night, announcing on Instagram Stories, “She’s here!” The 23-year-old is already the mother of three-year-old daughter Mecca, whom she shares with ex Makel Kennedy.

“Thank you to everybody that wished me a safe delivery, contributed anything to my babygirl. And anyone who just simply checked on me. Thank you,” Kayla posted on Instagram Stories after the birth. “I’m exhausted as hell y’all lmao give me a couple of hours.”

While Mecca was born using donor sperm (as Makel is transgender and transitioned from female to male after turning 18), Kayla has stated that this new baby was conceived “naturally.” 

She recently stated via an Instagram Q&A session that she is not currently with her second baby’s father (whose identity she has not yet revealed). 

When Kayla announced the pregnancy and baby’s gender back in February, she revealed that she considered not keeping the baby.

“From the moment I knew you would be arriving I was in complete awe, couldn’t believe it and battled within,” she wrote on Instagram. “So many thoughts of reactions, opinions, and judgements crossed my mind at the thought of keeping you. My first experience was filled with defensiveness and unpleasant emotions up until arrival and I just knew that’s not what I wanted to experience AGAIN.

“Then, I realized this would be my second chance to enjoy and bask in the experience once more .. 4 years later of what was supposed to be happiness and joy of a new life being brought into the world. So I kept you quiet.. I knew I wanted you but instead this time I surrounded myself with love and peace as long as I felt comfortable too.”

Back in January, The Ashley broke the news that Kayla had been let go from the ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant’ cast. As fans know, Kayla and former 16 and Pregnant star Madisen Beith were both brought on for Season 3, but the show’s producers decided to only keep one of the girls going forward.

“Kayla [Jones] got dropped,” a source close to Kayla told The Ashley in January. “They did not renew her contract… She was disappointed, especially since she has so much happening in her life right now that would be good to film. But MTV made their choice so there’s really nothing she can do.”

While Kayla will appear (in a very limited capacity) in the upcoming season of ‘Teen Mom: Young & Pregnant,’ it is Madisen who was made a main cast member.

Kayla has not revealed the new baby’s name.

  1. If I remember correctly she was driving for InstaCart for a living and didn’t have a great relationship with her mom. With the price of gas and two kids I’m sure she will just be fine….SAID NO ONE EVER!

    What is the matter with these women and their dumb decisions.


  2. LMAO absolutely NOT was Mecca conceived from a sperm bank. Unless “sperm bank” is reference to some random deadbeat.


    1. Right. Some dude “donated” by sleeping with her and agreeing to not be around or she never told him.

      Irresponsible either way.


  3. You still can’t convince me that her first pregnancy was conceived via sperm bank. Who goes to (and can afford) a sperm bank/insemination at EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE? What doctor would even agree to that? It’s not like they were in a stable place prior to the conception, and she even stated at one point that she feels bad for missing out on college and had a scholarship lined up (again, why would you chose to have a baby at EIGHTEEN when you have a scholarship). I think she got pregnant by someone else and she and Makel wanted to save face about it and he agreed to be father. THAT’S JUST ME OPINION!


    1. “Donor sperm” so not necessarily a paid bank but yeah, some dude got her pregnant and theyre calling it .. Whatever.
