Pregnant At 17 Movie Synopsis
Pregnant At 17 on Lifetime is about Sonia Clifton, a middle-aged married woman who discovers that Jeff, her husband of 10 years, is having an affair. Feeling that something has been going on for some time, the veterinarian makes it her business to find out more information about the little hussy who has taken her man. To her horror, her husband’s lover is a 17-year-old girl named Chelsea, who is not only underage but also pregnant! While enraged and disgusted at first, Sonia’s feelings began to change from wrath to empathy, causing her to want to support the young girl when it becomes apparent that Chelsea is a vulnerable girl who has no idea that her older boyfriend was married. In what turns out to be a three-way committed relationship, Chelsea realizes that she has placed everyone’s life in danger when a wicked ex-con from her past emerges and threatens to ruin everyone’s future.

Pregnant At 17 is one of many movies that Lifetime Television has presented with a similar theme. One that comes to mind is The Babysitter Seduction— a movie about a young girl who has an affair with her married lover and becomes a suspect in his wife’s murder. There are also two other movies that have aired on Lifetime about teen moms, such as Fifteen And Pregnant, which is about a teen who struggles with issues surrounding her boyfriend and parents, as well as The Pregnancy Project, a movie about a young girl who poses as a pregnant teen, in order to expose the mistreatment of teen moms in school. Movies in the “At 17” franchise, includes Lifetime’s Accused At 17 and Betrayed At 17.
Pregnant At 17 will debut on Saturday, February 20 at 8 p.m, with a repeat episode on Sunday.
