The Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 series may be ending, but their young stars aren’t leaving the spotlight anytime soon. Between their media appearances and various projects (Maci Bookout does podcasts; Kailyn Lowry is coming out with a book), they’re guaranteeing themselves a few extra minutes of fame even after their documentary shows are history.
Most of all, they’re a constant presence on social media, sharing their news, opinions and photos with the public via their Twitter, Instagram and Facebook accounts. Fans especially love seeing their young children getting bigger and cuter by the minute.
So what’s ahead for these young women once the cameras turn off for good? Chelsea Houska’s dad, Dr. Randy Houska, recently made his own prediction on Twitter: “@mtv Season 5 could be the best yet, successful rehab for Jenelle [Evans], diagnosis and success for Leah [referring to her daughter Ali's undetermined medical condition], graduation for Chels, AirForce life for Kail.”
Sounds good to us. In the meantime, enjoy these new photos from the cast!
