On tonight’s episode of ‘Teen Mom,’ Catelynn and Tyler deal with some adoption drama while Maci contemplates having a baby with Kyle, who’s obviously NOT ready!

Plus, Amber goes out to dinner with her friend Clinton, who kisses her and tells her he’s ready for a relationship, and Farrah jets of to California to search for a new apartment! It was a night filled with new beginnings! Did YOU watch?


Maci and Kyle take Bentley to day care so he can meet some new friends, but he doesn’t like it when Maci leaves! Bentley and Maci share such a special bond, and so do Bentley and Kyle. “Seeing Kyle with Bentley makes me see what a great dad he’ll be,” Maci says, “if we have kids of our own.” After day care, Maci asks Kyle if he wants to have a baby, and he says once they get married they will, but he’s just not ready yet. Maci keeps asking, saying she wants a little girl and it sounds like Bentley definitely wants a baby sister — he kept following Kyle around saying, “Baby, baby, baby.”

While at lunch with a friend, Kyle talks about how Maci wants another kid — he seems a bit nervous! (I don’t blame him, Maci sounds very, very serious!)

At her parent’s house, Maci tells her mom that she and Kyle were talking about having a baby and like any other mom of a teen mom, she’s concerned. Why does Maci need another baby!? She’s only 19! “Most 19-year-olds wouldn’t want another baby!” her mom says. “You’re still just a kid.” We agree! How about a wedding first…

Since Maci’s mom and Kyle aren’t crazy about the idea of adding a new baby to the mix, Maci meets her friends for dinner and asks their opinions. “Maybe Kyle’s a little scared because ya’ll are still young,” her friend says, who adds that she doesn’t want to see Maci get hurt again — a baby changes so much!

When Maci comes home from dinner, Kyle tells Maci that she needs to “get out of her baby fever” for a bit. Will she give up the baby talk?


Amber is still getting Leah’s room ready in her new place so she can move in with her. Leah has been living with Gary while Amber deals with Child Protective Services and although Gary’s happy Amber has finally learned her lesson, he is worried about Leah living with her. When Leah finally arrives at Amber’s house, she gets to see her new princess room — complete with a tent and pink bed — and she loves it!

Before Leah leaves to spend the weekend with Gary’s mom, Clinton, Amber’s “friend,” calls her and asks her out on a date! Amber asks Leah’s permission and although she says no, Amber says she’s ready and accepts Clinton’s offer. Bye, bye Gary!

On her date with Clinton, Amber asks if he was looking for a relationship. He says yes and then tells Amber about his daughter, who’s 14-months-old, and how her and Leah can be playmates. He asks her out again before kissing her at the dinner table! New Teen Mom romance in the works?


Catelynn and Tyler meet with their adoption counselor to get their six-month package from Carly and her adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa. They look at cute pictures of Carly, including one from Halloween (she was a ladybug), and realize how much they want Carly to be at their high school graduation. In hopes of making it happen, Tyler and Catelynn decide to write and send a letter to her adoptive parents, along with some Christmas presents for Carly. Tyler heads to the toy store with his dad Butch to pick out some Christmas toys for Carly.

A few days later, Catelynn goes to the toy store with her mom to shop for Carly. When she gets home, she shows Tyler the gifts before telling him that although his dad and her mom have been better about the adoption situation, Tyler’s mom Kim snuck behind their backs and called Brandon and Teresa, which was totally overstepping the boundary.

Tyler and Catelynn confront Kim when she comes over and she admits that she did not mean to “freak Brandon and Teresa out,” about their graduation plans. She says she wants to be in Carly’s life and starts to cry when she realizes she made a bad choice by going behind their backs and calling Carly’s parents.

When Catelynn and Tyler go to see their adoption counselor, she lets them know that their parents may want to get involved, but that their bond with Brandon and Teresa is sacred and should be kept private.


Farrah graduates from college with an Associate’s degree, so her dad takes her out to lunch t0 celebrate. Her goal is to get her Bachelor’s degree and start cooking school so she can eventually open a restaurant. She’s thinking about moving to California or Florida, but her dad is concerned she won’t be able to handle Sophia by herself. Farrah starts looking into places in Santa Monica and even calls a realtor to see if she can find an apartment near a college and a preschool. Farrah finally tells her mom that she’s looking into moving, but as usual, Farrah is rude and disrespectful to her mom, who’s just trying to help.

Farrah heads off to California on a trip while Sophia stays with her grandma. “I love you goofball,” she tells Sophia before jetting off. “It’s hard to leave Sophia behind, but I need to see what options are out there for us,” Farrah explains.

Once she gets to California, Farrah starts looking for places to live, but being her spoiled self, doesn’t like any she sees and seems very unimpressed.

Next stop? College visits. Farrah looks into daycare facilities on campus, but admits that she doesn’t love California. She calls her mom and tells her that LA isn’t for her and she decided not to move there. So, where will she go?
