Time to hop on Twitter and send good vibes to Ashley Salazar from Season 2B 16 and Pregnant. Ashley just revealed that her boyfriend and baby daddy, Justin Lane, is leaving her. But wait! There's more to this story than meets the eye...


 

Ashley and Justin are not breaking up, but they are facing a major change in their relationship. Justin, who just relocated from Texas to Louisiana, has a new employment opportunity — but it's even further away from his doting girlfriend and their pet cat.


 

"Justin got a new job as a 'snubber' out in the oil rigs," Ashley told fans on Sulia on March 18. "He goes off shore tonight!"


 

Apparently, Justin told Ashley the news through a text message just before leaving on his new adventure, hard hat and life preserver in tow. And according to Justin, he expects his first hitch (that's employment period in rig slang) to last about two weeks.


 

So how's the young mom to baby Callie holding up without her main man? Surprisingly well, despite a bit of trepidation.


 

"I am excited and scared for him at the same time!" she wrote.


 

Try not to worry, Ash. We're sending you both good thoughts and wishing Justin a safe journey on his new endeavor!
