As per The Ashley, Madisen did a Q&A on her Instagram page, right after it was announced that she'd be on the recent season of '16 and Pregnant' and one of the questions she answered was whether she thinks the show glamorizes teen pregnancies. “I mean, I guess it depends on how you look at it,” she wrote while also adding, “I’m not telling other girls to go and get pregnant. But I’m also not going to tell them it ruins their life.”
