MTV has confirmed the four young women who will comprise the third installment of its Teen Mom franchise, culled from the fourth season of 16 & Pregnant.

Katie gave birth to a daughter (Molli) on 16 & Pregnant. She is still with the baby daddy, her fiancé who works long hours at a coal mine, which caused problems for the couple. She managed to graduate high school and is studying to become a social worker.

She eventually decided on keeping her daughter, whom she named Arabella, and moved in with her boyfriend Matt and his mother.

Alex told In Touch that she works two jobs in order to keep him out of their lives and she doesn’t allow Matt to see his daughter.
