Screaming babies, dirty nappies, night feeds… it can only mean one thing - Teen Mom UK has begun! YAYYYYY.
Yep, the UK spin off of Teen Mom OG launched last night (2nd November) on MTV and introduced us to our five lovely mums: Mia Boardman, Chloe Patton, Megan Salmon Ferrari, Naomi Konickova and Amber Butler.
In the dramatic first episode, we got a glimpse of the complicated relationships the girls face with their boyfriends and families, including Megan, whose boyfriend Dylan cheated on her with her best friend. Then there's Mia, who struggles to maintain her jealousy as boyfriend Manley has another child with his ex-girlfriend. DRAMZ CENTRAL.
Speaking on ITV's This Morning today, Mia - who shares daughter Marliya with bf Manley - admitted she can't contain her jealousy as Manley tries to keep things 'civil' with his ex-girlfriend Erin and their daughter, Aalayah.
Explaining the situation, Mia said to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "We were together for two years then we broke up and he got another girlfriend (Erin), then they were expecting a baby, then we got back together and we were expecting."
She admitted: "I'm so jealous all the time. He's trying to keep it civil and I'm always jealous. I was in a bit of a bubble when I got back with him (Manley). I wasn't taking my pill properly."
But despite their ups and downs, Manley and Mia stayed together and Manley was there to witness Mia's labour with their daughter Marliya. In fact, so were MTV producers as they filmed the whole thing - which airs on next week's episode! Exciting.
She said: "I completely forgot they (the cameras) were there. I was so in my own bubble. I can't wait to watch it. I can't wait for Marliya to watch it as well."
Also appearing on This Morning alongside Mia were our mums Chloe and Amber, who both admitted they wanted to change the perception of teenage mums.
Chloe said: "I think I can speak for all of us when I say I wanted to show that we're not just sitting on our bums doing nothing, we want the best for our children.
"We just want to show that it's not all glamorous, it's dirty nappies, crying babies… we're just doing the best for our kids."
Speaking about how she fell pregnant with son Marley - who she shares with doting boyfriend Jordan - Chloe admits that the pill she on was at the time wasn't effective because she was taking antibiotics.
She said: "I would never class him (Marley) as a mistake - but it was an accident, a good accident."
Amber told Holly and Phil that she decided to stay on at college after falling pregnant with son Brooklyn, who she shares with ex-boyfriend Ste.
She said: "I've never had anyone look at me and think 'ergh, a teen mum' but other people have. I found out (I was pregnant) when I was at college and I decided to stay on at college.
"I wasn't always wanting to go out (and party), I was just a normal teenager, but I was always very mature, I was always looking after people.
"When I found out I was pregnant, it was shocking, but it's changed my life in a really good way. I'm living on my own, paying bills and food."
Asked by Holly and Phil whether they have a closing message for fans watching, Chloe said: "Keep your head up high. If I could have, I would have waited but things happen for a reason."
Aww, you tell 'em girls!
