'16 And Pregnant' Recap: Izabella Is Ashamed Of Her Pregnancy & Loses Her Best Friend!

Wed, June 1, 2011 4:49am EDT by 9 Comments

From Catholic school girl to teenage mother, Izabella is the strongest teen mom MTV has seen yet!

With high aspirations of becoming a doctor and a strict faith in the catholic church, Izabella Tovar was devastated when she found out she was pregnant. Because she was disappointed in herself, she kept her pregnancy a secret from everyone but her supportive parents and boyfriend, which ended up costing her valuable friendships.

Izabella was the perfect daughter, a straight A student with an AP course load and an active member of the Drill Team until she found herself 16 and pregnant. She was able to hide her pregnancy until the end of the school year and alienated herself from her friends during the summer. When she was finally forced to break the news, her best friend Cassidy pulled away because she was hurt that Izabella didn’t tell her earlier.

“I didn’t want it to be real,” said Izabella when she told her disappointed uncle why she didn’t tell people earlier.

Fortunately for Izabella, she had the most supportive set of parents this show has ever seen, and they offered to help take care of the baby so she and her boyfriend Jairo could finish school.Izabella’s parents gave the unmotivated Jairo strict conditions that he could live in their house without a job as long as he was enrolled in college and stayed in a separate room.

Izabella was able to jump right back into her studies, but Jairo revealed that he had lied to the family about graduating high school. Finally Izabella and her parents decided that unless Jairo got his act together that they’d be better off without him.

This week’s episode was by far the best episode of the season. For the first time this teen mom was a girl that America could relate to because she had a good head on her shoulders. Instead of fighting with her parents, Izabella realized that they were the only ones that really mattered because her best friends abandoned her when she needed them most.

It was also refreshing to see a young girl focus more on her future rather than her relationship. The only baby daddy drama Izabella dealt with was getting her boyfriend to work harder in school. Because Izabella’s parents have such a great relationship with her and Jairo, I have faith that she will be able to beat the odds and still have the future she dreamed of before she got pregnant.

Tell us what you think of Izabella’s episode! Do you think Izabella’s parents were the most supportive we’ve seen on 16 and Pregnant?

Thank you for your article. :) I just wanted to mention that you did spell my last name incorrectly, it is Tovar instead of Tarov. No biggie, just wanted to let you know. :)

Thanks again!
Izabella Tovar (:

You didn’t want it to be real, huh? Well, sweetie, next time try keeping your legs shut. I know that’s difficult for girls with loose morals like you, but try anyway. Then maybe you won’t further disgrace yourself and your family anymore than you already have.

Yea I was just thinking “If she was a strict catholic like she claims, wouldn’t she have known NOT to have sex?”

I’m glad she has support and didn’t abort the baby but no, she didn’t have a good head on her shoulders because she was giving it up. Everyone knows sex can lead to a baby.
