A new episode of TLC’s ‘Unexpected’ premiered on December 20 and it explored the life-altering journeys that teens and their families embark upon as they prepare for a baby. Unlike other teen pregnancy shows, ‘Unexpected’ is way more emotional and real.

The story of Myrka and her mom Lilliana Cantu was doing the rounds ever since TLC released the trailer of the show. After getting kicked out of her mother’s house, 15-year-old Myrka stayed with her 16-year-old boyfriend Ethan and his parents. Myrka was 19 weeks pregnant and she met Ethan in her biology class. “There is no flaw about her,” said Ethan.

The couple consummated their relationship after a week of dating and Ethan confessed he lost his virginity to Myrka. The duo also confessed the first time they had sex was the only time they used condoms. About her mom, Myrka said she made her feel bad about everything she did. After her parents got divorced, Lilliana had to work very hard to make ends meet leaving Myrka to take care of her younger brother since she was nine-years-old.

A viewer of the show wrote, “#unexpected Holy sh*t Myrka’s mom sure does need to be the center of attention and make her daughter’s pregnancy all about her.  She’s a heartless b***h!” Another pointed out that Myrka was raising her son, “But YOUR daughter was raising YOUR child and you have the nerve to say 'YOUR not going to be responsible for a child that’s not yours' but had YOUR daughter taking care a child that’s NOT hers !! Girl BYE #unexpected.”

Another called her a hypocrite, “If I was Myrka I would not want her involved once the baby is actually here & what a hypocrite, she had to help raise YOUR kid but you refuse to be there for that baby bc it isn’t yours?!”



 

 



 

 



 

She also said being Mexican her family was very religious and went to church every Sunday. It came as a shock to viewers when Lilliana said she insisted Myrka had an abortion and when her daughter said it was out of the question, she kicked her out of the house. A viewer wrote, “OMG! Lilianna wanted to terminate the pregnancy? She is in a church is this scene and speaks of killing a child?”

Another called Lilliana “trash”. “You can't MAKE your daughter have an abortion. This woman is trash #Unexpected.” Another wrote, “#unexpected Damn! Miryka’s mom is TERRIBLE! She’s a BEAST. (Not in a good way)”



 

 



 

 



 

Lilliana went on to say, as we have previously seen on the preview that she didn’t care what the TLC family calls her, people might call her ugly but she didn’t care. Even though viewers were quick to judge her, a handful of them felt they could understand where Lilliana was coming from. She said she was a strict parent and not a “lovey dovey” person. She raised Myrka very strictly and told her if she came home pregnant that would be the end of it.

She said, “It was the worst thing to be pregnant.” It was a sob fest for the mother and daughter through and through and Lilliana further said that “this wouldn’t have happened if I was there for my kids.” A viewer wrote, “I see a lot of people shaming Myrka’s mom...Her daughter decided to be grown and got pregnant.”

Another felt there was still hope for the mother to change, “As cold as she sounds...Mykra’s mom will be there for her. Watch once the baby is born. She’ll be babysitting.” A user wrote, “I actually like how Myrka’s mom is being hard on her. She told her multiple times to be responsible and yet she didn’t listen…”
