‘Unexpected’: Taron’s mother Teresa meets Reanna to convince her about their baby’s custody, will she give in?
Taron wants to be able to be with the baby at least three days a week while Reanna said he can have him every other weekend. Many fans feel this is her way of revenge for him cheating on her
The youngest member on TLC's ‘Unexpected’ Season 4, 15-year-old Reanna Cline became pregnant thanks to her 17-year-old ex-boyfriend Taron Ward. Reanna's mom, Jessica, was also a teen mother and is now going to be a grandmother at age 33.
After cheating on his pregnant girlfriend, Taron expressed concern that Reanna might not let him spend enough time with the baby once she was born. He wanted to have 50% custody of the child and go to court if needed. The last time when Reanna, Taron and Jessica sat down to have a conversation about it, it didn’t end so well.
Taron wants to be able to be with the baby at least three days a week while Reanna said he can have him every other weekend and she wasn’t budging from this arrangement. Even though Jessica constantly spoke in Taron’s favor, Reanna seemed determined. Reanna is definitely still very hurt from how Taron had treated her while they were together and this might be a way to get back at him as some viewers on Facebook have felt.
“She is so immature and vengeful. She should be so thankful that Taron wants to be involved. Alot of guys would have run away, especially the way she acts. Quit using that baby as,a pawn. Quit making it all about you, and your feelings. Stop making things difficult when there is no need for it. She keeps saying he cheated they were broken up because (little miss innocent NOT) sent half naked pictures to some guy. She wont even accept her part in that. Thank God mom isnt coddling her,” wrote a viewer.
Another said, “My parents were divorced my dad had us every weekend and Christmas Eve night ,half of Christmas day, easter and even more than that . She's being petty , only hurts the child in the end .”
On Sunday's, January 17, episode, Taron brings his mother over to Reanna’s place hoping she would be able to, “put some sense in her.” Taron’s mom, 52-year-old Teresa was herself going to be a mom for the 14th time. She said Taron has been around a lot of nieces and nephews so he has some experience with kids but having his own child will be a challenge for him as well as for her.
While they are on the way to meet Reanna, Jessica and Reanna’s grandmother Fidonnia, Taron confessed he felt scared about how Reanna was going to react. Teresa said there was no point in fighting and Taron said it wasn’t just about that. He went on to say how Reanna doesn’t give him any update about the baby and it was always him texting to know what was going on and she always responded in one word.
At one point Taron starts shaking and Teresa asks him, “You are that nervous?” Taron said he wanted things to go his way at least once. His mother tells him it was probably not going to go his way. A viewer suggested he should straightaway go to the court.
“He needs to go to court straight away, stop wasting time trying to negotiate with her, she will never willingly allow him the visitation he wants. It needs to be in the hands of a court who is invested in nothing other than what is in the best interests of the baby. Take the decision out of her hands. It will be the best money he will ever spend. Not pleasant but necessary if he wants a consistent relationship with his baby.”
