A resident of Fresno, California, 34-year-old Nicole was expecting her sixth child overall and the second one with her boyfriend, AJ, with whom she shared an on-and-off relationship. The daughter of a teen mom and one herself, she hoped her daughter, Mariah, would not follow the same pattern and build a successful future. However, the 16-year-old became pregnant with her boyfriend, Josh, and was adamant about keeping the baby. This significantly strained Nicole and Mariah’s relationship, with the latter being upset with her mother’s boyfriend’s inconsistent presence.
Not just that, the teenager resented her mother for having too many children, and thus, she moved into her grandmother’s home earlier. When she got pregnant, Nicole believed that her daughter had done so deliberately to spite her, and matters worsened when Mariah’s boyfriend moved in with her. On the other hand, the 34-year-old mother’s troubles escalated when her suspicions of AJ cheating on her proved true. After he moved out, Nicole decided to be a single parent.
