Becoming a parent at any age is a daunting task, but imagine discovering that you’re pregnant at the tender age of 13. That was the reality for Maddie Lambert, who bravely decided to embrace motherhood despite the challenges that lay ahead. Instead of shying away from her situation, Maddie chose to share her journey on social media and inspire other teenage girls in similar circumstances.
Maddie is an American video blogger who hosts a vlog called “Forever,” which has amassed over 1.5 million subscribers, a remarkable feat for someone so young. In her videos, the 15-year-old candidly shares what her daily life is like, showcasing both the ups and downs of parenting. Her content offers a refreshing and raw perspective on what it’s like to be a young mother.
However, it’s important to note that Maddie’s content is not meant to encourage teenage pregnancy. Instead, she wants to show girls in similar situations that they are not alone and that anything can be handled with the right support. Maddie believes that pregnant teens should be supported and not judged. As she puts it, “You don’t have to support pregnant kids, but you have to support pregnant kids.”
Maddie found out she was pregnant when she began experiencing symptoms that she initially thought were related to depression. She had recently broken up with her first serious boyfriend and was scared to face motherhood alone. However, deep down, Maddie knew she had the strength to handle it. Despite the challenges, Maddie embraced motherhood and loved her little daughter with all her heart from the very beginning.
Fortunately, Maddie had the support of her mother, who stood by her side throughout her pregnancy and motherhood journey. When Maddie’s mother found out that her 14-year-old daughter was pregnant, she assured her that they could handle it together. She told Maddie, “You will be fine. I like kids. We can handle it. You are a strong girl. Don’t back down and look to the future. We’ll make a map.”
After a difficult pregnancy, Maddie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Everly. Maddie is a proud mother and is grateful for her daughter’s presence in her life. Despite the challenges of being a young mother, Maddie has shown that with love, support, and determination, anything is possible. Her journey is a powerful reminder that no matter what life throws at you, you have the strength to overcome it.
