Young mother cuddles small baby

Welcoming a new bundle of joy into a family is one of the most priceless feelings ever…but what happens when it’s completely unexpected?

Welcoming a new life into a family is one of the most priceless feelings ever! 

However, this is not the case in the new documentary series of Unexpected: Teenage & Pregnant, Wednesdays at 21:00 on TLC Entertainment (DStv Channel 135), and streaming live on DStv Now. 

This emotional documentary series explores the highs and lows of unplanned teen pregnancies in the lives of three families, as the young parents juggle school and a baby. 

The irony is that each one of these young mothers was herself the child of a teen mum, and a new baby in the mix only adds to the already complex family dynamics. This series follows each family as they negotiate relationships with parents and partners through each stage of pregnancy as they anticipate the arrival of their unknown fate. As always, tensions rise between mother, daughters and families, as no one shies away from their opinions on how the new addition should be raised. From figuring out where to live and how to raise their child, are they prepared for this massive adjustment?
