Since its debut in 1998, MTV’s “True Life” has remained an award-winning success by unveiling the unconventional lives of young people across the United States. Still living up to the hype in its 2016 season, “True Life’s” latest episode: “I Had My Cousin’s Baby” will follow two women who decided to pursue romantic relationships and become pregnant by their cousins.
One of the women featured in the episode is Alexis (pictured above). She is six months pregnant with her cousin Andrew’s baby and while she prepares for motherhood, she is also trying to collect bail for him. As she petitions their family members to help with the fee, Alexis feels hopeless because they cannot ignore the nature of her relationship with Andrew.
While Alexis struggles for her family’s help and approval, another woman named Grace has decided to move across the country to Los Angeles with her husband/cousin Dylan and their two children. Since their marriage has severely fractured their other family relations, the two hope their marriage and family will receive acceptance in the West.
But will it?
Below is the sneak peek of the episode. Be sure to tune in on MTV on December 31, 2015, to catch the full episode.
