16 and Pregnant Star Cleondra Carter Gives Birth to Baby No. 2!
Cleondra Carter is officially a mom for round two! The 16 and Pregnant star gave birth to a son named Adrian Eli on July 8, several weeks early (he was due on July 29). So, who is the lucky dad? That would be Michael Wrease, Cleondra's long-term boyfriend.
“My sister Cleondra is in labor and I’m oh so excited to meet my first nephew,” Cleondra’s sister wrote on Facebook (via The Ashley’s Reality Roundup).
This is great news for Cleondra and her family, but sadly she still doesn't appear to have custody of her daughter, Kylee. Last time we checked on the former reality star (November 2014), she had created a GoFundMe.com page in the hopes of regaining custody after her OG baby daddy, Mario Escovedo, took her to court for full custody in October and won.
“I have worked so hard at providing our daughter with a stable and comfortable environment and it seemed that every chance her father and father’s family had they would hinder her from progressing and slow down her process of learning new things just to spite me,” Cleondra said on her page.
“Even throughout these situations, I have never withheld Kylee from her father or used her as leverage. I know she loves him and I have always done what’s best for my daughter. As hard as I tried, things just would not work with us co-parenting.”
Hopefully, Cleondra is able to fight for custody of Kylee now that she's had time to save up some money, and since the attorney fee was recently lowered. That being said, diapers don't buy themselves.
