‘Young and Pregnant’: Everything to Know About Danae Young
Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant features five new young moms who are expecting little ones. The age ranges of the moms go from 17 to 20 years old. Like previous versions, this show will follow young moms over the months leading up to the birth of their child.
That means more couple drama, more teenagers dealing with pregnancy and school, and more. But there is one couple that got people’s attention before the show started and that is Danae Young and Brianna Jaramillo.
The new show will be breaking new ground by featuring 17-year-old Jaramillo ,who is expecting a baby with her on-and-off-again boyfriend, Danae Young. Young is also transgender. This is pretty groundbreaking for the reality show franchise and for television in general.
So what all do we know about Young and Jaramillo? Here are seven things we know about the couple.
1. Danae Young is transgender and plans to be the father figure of Brianna’s baby
The two have reportedly been together for two years and are now making a big decision. “Brianna and her transgender boyfriend Danae have always had a tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship,” wrote MTV in a press release. “During one breakup, Brianna hooked up with an old friend and got pregnant.” Young then decided to be the father figure of the baby.
“Danae is back in the picture and has promised to raise the baby as his own,” MTV further explained. “But Brianna’s mom questions his ability to support her daughter.”
