'Unexpected' Season 4 Episode 3 Spoilers: Will Reanna call ex Taron when she gives birth to her daughter?
Fans are getting a little queasy with Reanna’s mother Jessica’s possessiveness for Taron and how she is getting involved
Reanna, 15, who is 28 weeks pregnant, goes into labor three months earlier than she was due in ‘Unexpected’. The new episodes explore the life-altering journeys that teens and their families embark upon as they prepare for a baby, from the struggle to raise multiple generations under one roof to the inevitable tensions that arise when family members disagree on parenting decisions.
Reanna took to social media and told fans that estranged boyfriend Taron wasn’t present at the birth of her daughter. While Taron wouldn’t say if he attended the birth, Reanna spilled the beans and told fans on Facebook that he didn’t. And she said she made that decision after he made her feel “uncomfortable” and refused to accept his daughter.
In the meantime, fans are also getting a little queasy with Reanna’s mother Jessica’s possessiveness for Taron. Reanna and Taron, 17, had a fallout when Reanna found out he was talking to three other girls. She said she checked Taron on social media and found out he had been texting other girls. Taron laughed it off and denied her claims. Taron then accused Reanna of sending “almost nude” pictures to a guy. He 'considered' that cheating and went on to sleep with another girl and actually cheated on Reanna while they were in a relationship.
The night he cheated, Reanna called Taron to inform him that she was pregnant. Taron, being the man that he is, confessed that he cheated and Reanna apparently lost her calm. Jessica, 33, who also got pregnant when she was a teenager has a similar on and off relationship with Reanna's father. She said she had nothing to do with Reanna's father too but she fixed the relationship for Reanna’s sake and she should do that too for her baby’s sake. Fans of the show took the discussion to Reddit to discuss if the mother getting overly concerned about the daughter’s relationship problematic and whether she has her own soft corner for Taron.
“So I just watched the new episode, and may feel differently after a re-watch or additional episodes, but does anyone else think she is WAY too invested in Reanna's relationship with Taron? I get wanting them to be able to co-parent, but it reads more like she wants a do-over for her own failed teenage relationship. Taron even said that he wants to see the baby all the time, but was noncommittal about Reanna, and she is clearly over him. Jessica needs to step back and listen to her daughter, instead of trying to force both the kids into the thing she wanted & didn't get.” Another wrote, “I think her mom's problem is she’s taking all emotions out of the situation and trying to look at it logically, as one does, and she’s truly forgetting to factor in her daughter's thoughts and feelings. Poor kid is 15 yo for goodness sake. She doesn’t know how to vocalize her feelings properly and her mom is bulldozing them as childish when she tries. I get where her mom's coming from but I feel for Reanna.”
