Cory Wharton and Taylor Selfridge are expecting their first child together.
Amid filming on the new season of Teen Mom OG, Cory and Taylor confirmed their baby news with his ex-girlfriend, Cheyenne Floyd, the mother of his two-year-old daughter Ryder, as cameras rolled for the MTV series’ upcoming season.
Us Weekly was first to share the news of Taylor’s pregnancy, revealing that she is currently 11 weeks along.

According to Cory, fans will see him and Taylor preparing to welcome their new baby on Teen Mom OG‘s new season.
“We’re filming right now,” he said. “That’s going to give you guys an inside look on our journey. I definitely think you guys should tune in. It’s going to be more exciting than Teen Mom 2 this season.”
Although Cory and Taylor waited to break their baby news to Cheyenne until the Teen Mom OG cameras were rolling, they told his daughter, Ryder, right away.
“We just made sure that she’s been a part of it ever since we found out,” he said. “She’s so happy in her own world. She’s super excited. She’s going to love it!”
Around the time Cory shared the first photo of Taylor’s baby bump, Taylor took to her Instagram page and gushed over her “first baby.”
“I’ve been praying for you since the day I found out about you,” she wrote. “You’re the love of my life already and I can’t wait to see who’s little nose you got, what color eyes you have, I can’t wait to see your first cry, your first smile, If you’re a boy or girl, I can’t wait to see your eyes open and look at me. You were made out of love and happiness. You have the best daddy who loves you so much already. And the best part is you already have a big sister! I can’t wait for the rest of my life with you.”
Hours later, Cheyenne shared a supportive message on her Instagram Stories, which included a photo of Cory and Taylor.
“Congratulations baby’s are a blessing can’t believe Ryder is going to be a big sister!” she captioned the image.
“She accepted the news,” Cory added of Cheyenne’s reaction on Instagram Live, via Radar Online. “There wasn’t a big ‘get out of my house.’ Honestly, from day one [she] was supportive. [I’m] thankful for that.”
“She was fine,” Taylor added.
Teen Mom OG will return to MTV next year for a new season.
