Ashley, who is from Oakland, CA, made her MTV debut on Teen Mom: Young + Pregnant, which documented the birth of her now four-year-old daughter, Holly, and her explosive on-and-off relationship with her now husband, Bar. Ashley and Bar initially planned to get married during her pregnancy, but they called off their engagement on Season 1 of Young + Pregnant. Committed to giving Holly the best life possible, Ashley pursued her dream of becoming a nurse. Bar's lack of drive split him and Ashley apart for a while, but now they're back together and better than ever. After Bar got his GED, he decided it was time to step up and propose to Ashley again -- to which she said yes. The couple got married, but things are far from happily ever after. Communication issues and Bar's legal troubles weigh heavily on the family, and Ashley contemplates if it's worth sticking it out or if it's time to consider the D-word.

In high school, Briana became pregnant with daughter Nova and struggled to navigate parenthood with Nova's father, Devoin. When Nova was six, Briana met DJ Luis and became pregnant again, and baby girl Stella was born. Luis was not around for his daughter, and Briana had a sense of déjà vu after going through the same thing with Devoin. But as Devoin steps up for both Nova and Stella, Briana must reckon with Luis's absence once again -- even when Stella has a medical emergency. In matters of love, Briana is engaged to the tough but soft-spoken Javi, but she struggles with whether she wants to get married.
