How Kailyn Defied The Teen Mom 2 Statistics And Graduated From College

During tonight's episode, the young mother became a Delaware State University grad

Kailyn previously stated that she was "going to defy all of the statistics" on teen moms graduating from college -- and during tonight's brand-new episode, the young mother kept true to her word.

"Good job, Mommy!" Lincoln exclaimed as he and an equally ecstatic Isaac hugged their diploma-toting mom.

"Thank you, babe," a visibly emotional Kail replied, after wiping her eyes.

While Kail admitted pre-ceremony that she's unsure of what she will do next (graduate school or pursuing a career in television are on the table), the Delaware State University alum is the first Teen Mom 2 cast member to reach this milestone. It took six years of hard work in and out of the classroom, and she overcame tremendous odds: Less than 2 percent of teen moms who have a baby before they turn 18 earn a college degree by the time they are 30.

Regardless of what Kail decides is her next educational/professional venture, it's important to recognize this amazing achievement of obtaining her bachelor's. Offer your congratulatory words in the comments, and keep watching her and her loved ones every Monday on Teen Mom 2 at 9/8c.
