EXCLUSIVE: Alex Nation Opens Up About The Misconceptions Of Being A Teen Mum
A lot is said about teen mothers - so much so, there is an entire television franchise about it!
But to clarify what it truly is to be a 'teen mum' and share her own experience bringing up her son Elijah, we spoke exclusively to The Bachelor Australia's Alex Nation.
In the video above, Alex opens up about the stigma, popular misconceptions and uses her own experiences to shine a light on how courageous it is for all mums to bring a special little life into the world.
Cue the awwwwws and don't forget to tune into our brand new series Teen Mom UK, Sundays at 5:50pm - only on MTV!
Here I am, 18, a brace face, pregnant, nervous, a little unsure, excited, scared(petrified) but empowered. Today, @mtvaustralia and I caught up to discuss all things @mtvteenmomuk and my own personal experiences as a young single mum trying to find her feet in this big wide world. I suppose, the biggest thing I take away from my own journey is, is that it doesn't matter whether you are 17, 19, 23, 34 or even 44 being a mother is the most challenging yet the most rewarding thing you will ever do, it is the biggest most important job as a woman your body will ever do. Like.. we carry life and bring life into this world. That is (scuse the french) fucking amazing! And this does not discriminate against age. So I just want to say to ALL the mums out there, we rock. We are tired (96.5% of the time) and very rarely do we get to sit on the toilet in peace, but we absolutely rock!!!
