'16 And Pregnant' Bonus Scene: Arianna Wonders If Her Dad's Absence Influenced Her Mistakes


On this week's episode of "16 and Pregnant," we watched Arianna try to balance her pregnancy with family drama and ongoing problems with her ex, Maurice. After finding out Arianna was expecting, Maurice asked for a paternity test, which marked the beginning of the end for the young couple.

In this bonus scene, an anxious Arianna heads to the gym with her grandmother, Debbie, but she soon grows frustrated by her slow pace. The duo takes a break, but the stress doesn't let up -- Arianna gets a text from Maurice asking if he can attend the next doctor's appointment for "my son Aiden." This language especially irritates Debbie, who hasn't been a fan of the dad-to-be since he questioned Aiden's paternity.

"You know how I feel about Maurice," Debbie says. "You know I don't like him, and after all that, I don't even want to see his face."

Arianna then asks her grandmother if she thinks not having her dad around somehow contributed to her getting pregnant so young, and Debbie notes that Arianna definitely sought out male attention.

"I know it's not an excuse," Arianna admits. "I still made my mistakes. I'm not blaming it on him. I could've been the smarter one and prevented it."
