'16 And Pregnant' Recap: Sarah Struggles To Raise Baby Tinleigh As A Single Mom

Sarah and Blake’s love didn’t last, but luckily she has a supportive mother to help her raise beautiful baby Tinleigh.

Unlike Hope’s beau from last week, not all baby daddies are keepers on this reality show. Sarah Roberts‘ ex-boyfriend chose video games over responsibility, leaving Sarah a single, teen mother.

Sarah, 17, a high school juinor from Chickamauga, Georgia, was dating a video gaming drop-out, Blake. She thought he was the love of her life but he couldn’t even count on him to get a baby crib or put aside $10 a month to help support the baby.

Unlike many of the other 16 And Pregnant girls, Sarah is very close to her mom, Tina. Naturally, Tina would constantly argue with Blake to make sure he was pulling his weight.

Unfortunately, Blake couldn’t handle fatherhood and split a mere month after their baby Tinleigh was born via C-section. Instead of accepting responsibility, he chose a job on a shrimping boat.

“I’m taking care of something that’s half his responsibility,” said Sarah.

In this episode, we watched a couple’s relationship crumble — and it’s too bad that they had to get a baby involved.

At the end of the episode, Sarah, an aspiring journalist, reveals that she wishes she could be in college like all her friends.

“I love Tinleigh to death, but sometimes she drives me crazy,” she said.
