'16 & Pregnant' Recap: Jamie's Baby Daddy Ryan Cheats On Her While She's In Labor!

Are Jamie & Ryan the show’s most dysfunctional couple yet?

This week, MTV’s 16 And Pregnant focused on Jamie, a girl in her senior year of high school who found out she was pregnant. Too bad her baby daddy Ryan lost his license and couldn’t take her to doctor appointments! The young couple tried to work things out, but Ryan kept getting license-related court dates on the days she was scheduling her check-ups. He ended up missing most of her late-term check-ups, but promised he would try to be around more before the baby was born.

Things for Jamie aren’t easy at home either, as she doesn’t really have a relationship with her dad. Her dad found out she was pregnant through MySpace and sent her a text message telling her to not have the baby! Her dad didn’t show up to the baby shower, but Ryan did, and he seemed to have a good time playing with all the kids at the shower.

Jamie did get a little lucky, though, considering her school actually has day care, which has been pretty much unheard so far on 16 And Pregnant; the young mothers typically have to choose between schooling and caring for their babies.

When it came time for Jamie to go into labor, Ryan didn’t answer his phone! By the time he showed up to the hospital, she was already five hours into labor and, and as Jamie pointed out, he smelled like he’d been having a good time AND he looked like a mess. Then baby Miah was born — and she’s adorable!

Jamie told Ryan he didn’t have to stay at the hospital with her and sent him home; she was pretty annoyed at him. And the next day, her dad showed up with flowers and even held the baby. All Jamie could think about was how she wants Miah to have a present father in her life. She and Ryan end up fighting — again — because she didn’t want Ryan to take the baby over to his house while she was still breastfeeding.

When it came time for Jamie’s first day of school, she managed to survive stressful day back — but felt like everyone was looking at her like they knew something she didn’t. So Jamie’s friend clued her in: Ryan had a new girlfriend AND he’d been dating her for a while! He was with even with the new girlfriend the day Jamie went into labor, which is why he wasn’t there for most of it!

Jamie wisely went to the courts to handle custody arrangements, to which Ryan said Jamie was just using the baby as a tool to get back at him. In the sad confessional at the end, she told the camera that Ryan promised to take care of her and the baby. But things just didn’t turn out that way.

Tell us, HollywoodLifers: Are Jamie & Ryan the most dysfunctional couple in 16 And Pregnant history, or do you think they have a shot?

I hate the way theses young girls think they have all the power to make descions for theses babies. She told Ryan that he wasn’t’ even on the birth certificate. He has no rights. Give me a break. Like that was a smart choice. How is she going to explain to baby that she doesn’t even carry her dad’s name. Real smart. Your pissed that your baby’s daddy acting like a kid. Grow up! You are both children trying to play house. So sad I hope you figure it out real soon so you don’t end up pregnant again.You girls looking for help. So sad that there is daycare in school. How much easier are we going to make it for these kids. Baby is not even a year old and talking custody already. Thought you were going to be together forever. Should have had a better plan.
