The latest episode of TLC’s My Teen Is Pregnant and So Am I sees one mother practicing tough love with her 14-year-old daughter, who is five months pregnant and, in the eyes of her mom, doesn’t seem to care.
Shaniyah and her mother Lemhele, who just recently gave birth to her own baby, both became pregnant within just a few months of each other. In a clip, the teenager from Bronx, New York, tears up as her mother tries to get her to talk about her feelings.

Shaniyah has claimed that she had no idea she was pregnant. In the video, she sits stoically on a sofa, staring blankly ahead as if she is indeed far removed from the situation.
A therapist on the show tells the 14-year-old, who still hopes to go to Harvard and become a lawyer, that it’s okay to show her emotions, at which point Shaniyah bursts into tears.
