'16 & Pregnant' Recap: Briana's Baby Daddy Storms Out Of The Hospital After A Bitter Argument

Wed, April 4, 2012 12:25am EDT by 18 Comments

On top of dealing with her pregnancy, the teen mom must handle MAJOR issues — including a grieving sister and a baby daddy who refuses to see his own child!

Briana Dejesus‘ story is probably one of the most heartbreaking 16 and Pregnant episodes I’ve ever seen! Her (now) ex-boyfriend is so uninvolved in her baby’s life, it’s no wonder she left his name off the birth certificate. In another twist, Briana’s sister Brittany gets pregnant too and opts for an abortion — a decision that puts Briana’s own choices into view.

Even though Briana doesn’t have a dad around, she’s very close with her sister and mom. In fact, Briana and her sister got pregnant around the same time. But Briana chose to keep the baby, and Brittany decided to get an abortion. Brittany is supportive of her little sister, but it’s obvious she’s grieving and jealous of the attention Briana’s getting. On the other hand, Briana is jealous of her sister’s ability to go out and be with friends. Obviously, it causes a lot of tension in the family.

Briana’s sister and mom are so supportive and helpful, but her baby daddy Devon is one of the worst dads in the 16 & Pregnant franchise. The jerk blatantly refuses to answer Briana’s many calls and texts inviting him to participate in preparing for the baby. Forced to make plans without him, Briana decides she’s going to name her daughter Nova. When Devon finally decides to meet up with Briana to talk, he complains he didn’t get to pick the name.

“If you want the [baby to have your] last name, then you show me you want the last name,” Briana tells him. She says she’s only asking for him to get a job to help support the child. But he complains that she’s stressing him out because she’s “forcing” him to find work.

Sorry buddy, but if you’re old enough to get a girl pregnant, you’re old enough to get a job.

Since Devon is useless, Briana’s mom agrees to assist Briana with money until she finishes school and can start her own career. Briana knows she needs more than a high school diploma, and she’s determined to get an education.

Later, Briana goes to a haunter house with her sister and friends, but turns out it’s time for the baby! Surprisingly, Devon shows up for the birth. He sticks around long enough to find out that Briana isn’t going to give Nova his last name on the birth certificate. Furious, he curses her family out and storms off to go play basketball with his buddies. Keep it classy, Devon.

My heart broke as I watched Briana struggle to breastfeed and burp Nova. It’s so obvious she’s frustrated and starting to feel the consequences of what’s happened.

Weeks later, Devon finally graces us with his presence to see his child for the first time since the birth. He brings along Pedro the friend and spends more time texting than actually holding Nova. “How do you learn how to feed your baby if you’re on your cell phone?” Brittany asks. Even as Briana’s mom tries to have a serious conversation with him about Nova, he keeps texting right through it. “You don’t think that’s disrespectful?” she questions. No, he does not.

Instead, he complains that Briana and her mom are fighting with him, so he’s off without even saying goodbye to Nova. Ugh, he is the WORST. “He doesn’t love Nova enough to stop what he’s doing,” Briana says.

Later, he says he wants to meet up with Briana to talk without her mom around, so she agrees to meet at a restaurant with Nova in tow. 30 minutes later, and he still isn’t there. OMG I HATE HIM. Crying, poor Briana has to call her mom to pick her up because the jerk stood her and his baby daughter up.

It is probably one of the saddest scenes I’ve ever seen in Teen Mom and 16 & Pregnant history.

Even more heartbreaking is watching Briana see her sister go off and have fun with her friends — the life Briana could have had. She admits to her sister that if she could go back, she would have made the same decision Brittany did. She doesn’t regret having Nova, but she would trade places with Brittany any day.

Briana closes her episode with very wise words: “Never make a permanent decision on temporary feelings.”

BFFs — What did YOU think of the episode? Were you as mad at Devon as I was? What do you think of the contrast between Brittany and Briana’s lives? Share your thoughts!

If u weren’t so freakin’ dumb and actually watched not just one episode but other episodes of 16 and Pregnant, you’d see that its not just the blacks who act like that. Its called immaturity dumbo! Pity how racist and pathetically narrow minded you are. Your comment is a total waste of space… go get a job, better yet, a freakin’ life!

Darota- there is a process called adoption, and unless there is a physical reason as to why the pregnancy can not continue there is no reason for abortion. She wasnt raped and she wasnt mentally unstable. Abortion should never be birth control, she was “woman” enough to have sex and get pregnant she should be woman enough to do the responsible thing. There are more than enough people who would be willing to raise the baby she didnt want.

He left to go play basketball? OMG to funny! The black guy left his newborn to go play hoops! This should be on Tosh.0 “Lets put it on the board and see how many racist jokes we can make in 60 seconds”.
Dear Morons, When a child is born out of wedlock, otherwise known as illegitimate or bastard, it should not the fathers last name.
“I was expecting more out of Devon” I wasn’t. He’s a boy.

“she got her unborn child killed and is upset that her sister was woman enough to give her child the chance to live (like she deserves)”

she got her killed because she wasn’t woman enough?
That’s just ignorant to say. Her decision for an abortion was good for her. It was her decision to make and who are you to judge her. No one is lesser of a person because they choose abortion.

I cant say enough about how stupid you are, its not going to help anything starting a race war on here buuuut are most of the dads on the show black? Nope are most there for thier kids? Nope, so sweetie if your able to undersand the simplest aspects of reason of deduction its not a race thing its a teen thing. But judging by the way you type i doubt that so ill explain it in a way that you will – teens sex = baaaad, no matter color.

Excuse me, but who are you to judge someone? Abortions are choosen for a reason from numerous people. Our country allows PRO CHOICE. It is their choice. Like it is your’s to choose to have your children. Now clearly she chose abortion for not only her well being but also the child she could have had. I hate seeing people judge others for their choices. People do not judge others for bringing a baby into this world. People do judge others though when they bring a baby into this world which they can not afford to take care of. So either way people are screwed from you no good judgmental people.

It’s wrong to be judgmental and it’s wrong to abort… there are people who can’t make children she could have given them the opportunity… it was still selfish either way…. If they are no ready for the possibility of babies so young they should either abstain or use birth control!!!!
