Teen Mom OG dad Cory Wharton and his girlfriend Taylor Selfridge announced their pregnancy last month. Following the announcement, the two stayed relatively quiet on social media and according to a report from OK! Magazine, Taylor recently took to social media to make a heartbreaking revelation; she was pregnant with twins but lost one of the babies.
“Ok I didn’t think it would be a big deal to take a break from social media but apparently it is because everyone seems to think I’m missing now, please don’t believe this stuff. I’m doing just fine, I’m happy, healthy, our baby is healthy. A few days after the announcement we found out we were supposed to actually have twins, I ended up losing one of them. But on the positive side, my baby is healthy! And I’m 19 weeks now!” she wrote on her Instagram story recently per the OK! article.
She went on to explain that her not posting on social media doesn’t mean that she “went missing.” She further explained that her absence from social media wasn’t because she and Cory lost one of their twins. Rather, she cited the fact that social media can cause stress and since she is pregnant, she didn’t want to “stress herself out.” The soon-to-be mom explained that she wants to ensure her baby is healthy.
While she shared an update about the pregnancy, she did not reveal the gender of their baby.
Cory and Taylor announced their pregnancy back in October. At the time, Taylor was 11-weeks along. They revealed that they had not planned to have a baby together, but that the pregnancy is a “blessing.” While Cory already has one daughter (with his ex, Cheyenne Floyd), he did not know that he was a father until his daughter was 6-months-old. As a result, this is the first time he will share in the pregnancy experience with his partner. He explained that he is “excited” and that he will get to experience some of the milestones like ultrasound and doctor appointments.
At the time of the announcement, Cory took to Twitter to share a photo of himself kissing Taylor’s baby bump. Taylor was dressed in a beautiful white dress that showed off her bump and she wore her long blonde hair down. Taylor smiled for the camera while Cory placed a kiss on her pregnant belly.
Fans are excited for the happy couple.
