    Why wouldn’t you include the ages of all these women?

  • Janie

    While teen marriage is another issue entirely I will point out that at least 5 of these women were married at the time the children were born. While they may not all have been planned, Their “teen pregnancies” can’t necessarily compare to the unplanned pregnancies profiled in the reality shows.

    Janie- exactly. Many were married, or decades ago. People forget that 18-20 is the prime time for having a healthy baby, historically 15, 14, 13 was common. The girls can be perfectly ready, it’s society that isn’t. Shirley temple had a baby at age 19 in what, the 50s? Does anyone know how common that was then?? The body isn’t meant to wait until 30 or later.

  • Mother

    If you can support yourself and a baby in your teen years go for it, but most teens nowadays have no idea how to raise a baby and have never done a lick of work in their lives. Part of being ready for a baby is gaining the means of supporting one. We don’t want to support your baby. Last year 41% of the babies were born to single mothers. A single teenage mother can’t support a baby. Most of us have 2 incomes in the family and it’s still hard. Children of single parents lag far behind their peers in school and throughout their lives. Children of single parents have more mental and legal problems than their peers. Shirley Temple was married and had a huge income when she had her baby. Are you in that same position? Use birth control and practice safe sex. Have a baby when you can do it right. Don’t make up stuff to justify your ignorant mistakes.

  • Nolan

    LeBron’s girlfriend barely counts b/c she isn’t famous at all. It is her star boyfriend that is.

  • Spring

    Don’t forget Oprah but, her son died.
