Growth spurt! Teen Mom 3 may have only lasted for one season in 2013, but the spinoff’s stars Briana DeJesus, Mackenzie McKee, Alex Sekella and Katie Yeager — and their children! — made a lasting impression on viewers.
While DeJesus and McKee went on to star on other iterations of the franchise (the Florida native joined Teen Mom 2 in 2017 while the Body by Mac founder embarked on her Teen Mom OG journey two years later), both Sekella and Yeager opted for lives out of the spotlight.
“I like my privacy,” Yeager, who shares daughter Molli with ex Joey Mayes and another daughter, nicknamed “Baby Thayn,” with now-ex-boyfriend Tyler, told E! News in 2017. “Once the show ended it was a bittersweet feeling but I was relieved to have an out to go back to a somewhat normal life.”
After the MTV cameras stopped rolling, “I went to school. I moved [from Wyoming] to Utah,” Yeager added. “I was working for a rehab facility and it was just a regular day-to-day life, taking care of my daughter. … I graduated from school and have always worked. I can now go places and be normal and not have people following me around.”
Sekella, who shares daughter Arabella with ex Matt McCann and daughter Althea with husband Tim Peters, also keeps a low profile — but still gives fans glimpses into her life as a mom of two via social media.
In January 2022, the dancer — whose rocky coparenting relationship with McCann played out on her episode of 16 and Pregnant and on TM3 — revealed that her husband officially adopted Arabella.
“It has been a VERY VERY LONG process but we can finally say Arabella is a PETERS!! 🎉,” Sekella captioned a photo of her husband and eldest daughter smiling at the courthouse.
When it comes to DeJesus’ children — she shares daughter Nova with ex Devoin Austin and daughter Stella with ex Luis Hernandez — fans have watched the little girls grow up from babies to sweet children amid the ongoing coparenting drama with their respective parents. Despite DeJesus and Austin’s occasionally tumultuous relationship, he has frequently stepped up to the plate to be a father figure to Stella and sees the girls as a package deal.
McKee’s three children — she is mom of sons Gannon and Broncs and daughter Jaxie with ex-husband Josh McKee — have also dealt with hardships, including the loss of their “Nanny,” Mackenzie’s mom, as well as their parents’ divorce. Mackenzie and her kids live in Florida, where she’s constantly posting photos of them enjoying the beach and smiling together.
