The photo above is currently circulating on the social networking site Twitter. I have no idea of it’s origin but it’s apparent that the girls in it are pretty young…. and pretty PREGNANT!
I wrote a post a while ago about 90 Teens Pregnant at one Tennessee high school (click HERE if you missed it), so the imagery of a group of knocked up teens, while shocking, isn’t THAT surprising.
“Amber Cole” was just the beginning! This should be a warning shot that if we don’t take the wheel and steer our teens in another direction… THIS is what will be the norm.
Shoutout to @MisMinL23 for bringing to my attention.

Jennifer Hudson performed in Atlanta last week amidst speculation that she’d either gained weight or was a few months pregnant. I admit, she did look a little stuffed in her mid-section but I didn’t even give it a second thought. Well, ladies and gents, a source close to Jennifer has recently confirmed what a lot of people where whispering. Jennifer’s got a lil ‘punk’ in the oven!
While her manager and publicist deny the rumors, two sources close to the Oscar and Grammy winner confirm exclusively to ESSENCE.com that she is indeed expecting. This would be the first child for Hudson.
Hudson, who is currently receiving rave reviews while on tour with Robin Thicke, is engaged to David Otunga, a Harvard Law graduate and former contestant on “I Love New York 2.” The couple plans to marry sometime soon, but hasn’t confirmed a wedding date.
Tragedy struck the singer last October when her mother, brother and nephew were murdered. Hudson made a triumphant return to the spotlight on February 1 when she sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl. She went on to win her first Grammy Award for best R&B album on February 8. While her manager and publicist deny the rumors, two sources close to the Oscar and Grammy winner confirm exclusively to ESSENCE.com that she is indeed expecting. This would be the first child for Hudson. (Source)
