A Georgia teen couldn’t juggle being a new mom, a student and a girlfriend on Monday night’s episode of “16 and Pregnant,” but was ending her relationship with her loyal boyfriend the best decision?
Despite the fact that Savon became pregnant by another guy, she started dating her friend Mauwi. When the father of her baby completely dropped out of the picture, Savon worried that Mauwi would follow suit, but the college student didn’t falter: He quickly became a solid support system for the mom-to-be, offering to help with the child and even come home to assist on weekends.
That’s when Savon realized she may have finally found The One.
“I wish I would have just sat down and realized that Mauwi was the right person for me to be with, instead of trying to be with somebody who has no interest in me,” Savon told her aunt, LaDonna.
Throughout Savon’s pregnancy, she wouldn’t have sex with Mauwi, even saying that she was “traumatized” and planned to wear a chastity belt after her son arrived. Mauwi was patient and agreed to wait, but their relationship never got that far.
After Baby Eden was born, Savon told Mauwi that being a mother, a student and a girlfriend was “too much right now.” “I’m just coming to the realization that I’m a mom, and that kind of comes first,” she said, breaking it off with him. It was a mature, brave decision, but part of her regretted it.
Shortly after the split, a numb Savon opened up to her aunt yet again, admitting that she wished Eden had a father. Replied LaDonna: “I’m sure you wanted better for yourself, but you can’t beat yourself up about it.”
