The MTV Reality TV series ‘16 and Pregnant’ covers the lives of high school teens through their pregnancy. Navigating the strenuous burden of carrying a child and managing complex relationships and big changes, the show garnered quite a fan following. With more than a decade since its conclusion, the show had more than just teen pregnancies for viewers to devour. From drama to even domestic violence, the show packed quite a punch. It is natural for fans of the show to wonder where Season 3’s cast of ‘16 and Pregnant’ are now. Luckily, we’ve covered the lives of the once-young teens with a penchant for drama extensively!
Where is Jordan Ward Now?
Hailing from St. Louis, Missouri, the episode covering the teen pregnancy of Joran Ward and baby daddy Brian Fender had the series’ highest ratings. It was decided that the cast of ‘16 and Pregnant’ Season 3 would also star on ‘Teen Mom’, but it was delayed because Jordan got pregnant again.
After the birth of their first baby, Jordan married Brian in August 2011 and moved to Texas after he was enlisted in the military. The couple had even welcomed their daughter Arri shortly after the birth of their first son Noah. However, the two split up in 2016, and Jordan had her third baby with Manny Hinkson in 2017 and named him Leo.
Instead of seeking a life in the public eye, Jordan raises her children with her partner in a nest of comfort and solitude. The couple split up, and Jordan is now engaged to Chris Kellermann and lives with her three amazing children!

Jennifer’s journey with her baby daddy was turbulent. With Jennifer’s family set against the match, their dynamic was one of mutual abuse visible throughout the series.

She discusses the involvement of Josh in her children’s lives on her Youtube channel.

A high school senior at the time, Jamie McKay was 15 when she had her daughter Miah with her then-boyfriend Ryan McElrath.

However, she chose to abort her second child in light of personal struggles and shared the news with her fans through Twitter. Over time, the two acquired a wrap sheet with the law and were allegedly involved in the assault of a female classmate and even each other.

Over time, Danielle has been involved in a string of controversies. From barely avoiding a prison sentence in a physical altercation in 2012 with her grandmother to making insensitive comments on heroin addiction on Twitter, Danielle’s journey has been rocky.
