What did you think of the Dec. 15 episode of ’16 and Pregnant?’ Will Megan & Nathan be good parents, or does she need to dump him NOW?

Megan thought her boyfriend Nathan was the love of her life — but her baby daddy just doesn’t seem ready for his new role, considering he spends all his time playing video games! Megan’s father just got back from Iraq and was NOT happy to have Nathan living in their home. He tries to talk Nathan into joining the air force, but Nathan keeps making excuses. Even after Megan gave birth to a baby boy, Nathan went right back to his video games, leaving Megan and her mom to take care of the newborn. Nathan got a a job offer in Texas and he’s seriously considering it, but Megan fears if he takes it, he’ll never come back.

Here’s everything you need to know about Megan & Nathan:

  1. Will she be a good mom? I think she’ll be a great mom because she’s really trying to be there for the baby, getting up at 4:30 a.m. to feed her. She’s also really good about pushing Nathan to find work, but she’s delusional about his ability to be there for her and the baby.
  2. What’s her family like? Her family is really supportive of Megan and her baby. Her mom really cares about how she’s doing, and her sister is her biggest supporter. Her dad is also helpful in trying to motivate lazy Nathan.
  3. How’s the baby daddy? He’s awful! He doesn’t care about how Megan is doing, and he’s too lazy to get a job, let alone help take care of the baby. If he moves to Texas, it might be the best thing for Megan!
