<p><span></span>There's another baby on board for one of the teens on <em>Teen Mom 2</em>. Megan Nelson, 18, who has appeared on the hit reality show as best friend and former roommate to star Chelsea Houska, is pregnant and expecting a son on July 7, <em>Life & Style</em> has learned.<br />
Megan, a native of Sioux Falls, S.D., witnessed firsthand how best friend Chelsea, 19, struggled with teen pregnancy. But now Megan, who's expecting with her boyfriend of only seven months, is publicly sharing her journey on her Facebook fan page and twitter. "I've always wanted a boy first," she recently gushed to her 6,643 Twitter followers.
Megan is thriving in the spotlight, but MTV says she will not become a series regular and friend Danielle Jamie agrees. "Megan does not want to be on Teen Mom or any other reality TV show," her friend Danielle Jamie tells Life & Style. "She wants the baby to live a normal life. She's nervous and excited about being a mother. Chelsea was shocked -- but she's excited for Megan too."
Still, Chelsea, mom to 18-month-old Aubree, had hoped her stints on 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom 2 would be cautionary tales, but Megan is now the third of Chelsea's friends to become a teen mother. "Having a baby is really lifechanging," says Chelsea, who preaches about the importance of birth control. "Wait till you're married and have a stable career to bring a baby into the mix."
