It’s a bouncing baby girl for Teen Mom OG star Cory Wharton and girlfriend Taylor Selfridge.
The couple just welcomed the newest addition to their family.
The happy dad took to Instagram to share the news with his followers, saying, “She’s here!”
He then added, “Everybody’s safe, everybody’s healthy. Taylor’s fine, the baby is gorgeous.”
Fans were expecting the news as Wharton had already shared on Twitter earlier this week that Taylor was in the hospital.
He shared on social media Wednesday morning, “Quick update: Taylor is doing AMAZING, but it’s time for the epidural shot… So we should be meeting our daughters today :) Thanks for all the support you guys.”

As a first-time mom it’s been difficult to find other women to talk to about pregnancy. A lot of my friends don’t have children yet so going through pregancny has been quite an isolating time for me. I've also been dealing with a lack of confidence because my body has changed so much. @Peanut has been an amazing support for me to connect with other women expecting 2020 babies who feel the same. There are so many helpful threads on the app from other women who are going through this journey too. It's always reassuring to know you're not alone. The women I've met have really helped me get through these new changes. Whether you're already a mom, pregnant, or trying to conceive, I really recommend you join the @Peanut community. It's an amazing space to build friendships, find support and learn from other women at a similar stage in life. There's nothing like support from other women to get you through. 🦋 I can’t believe I only have a few months left until I meet my princess! I love you my little peanut🤰🏼💞 #peanutapp #30weeks
This is the first child for Taylor and the second child for Cory, who already has a 3-year-old daughter, Ryder, with Teen Mom OG star Cheyenne Floyd.
The couple’s pregnancy journey is now playing out on Teen Mom OG
In the most recent episode of the popular MTV reality show, Cory revealed the news of Taylor’s pregnancy to a shocked Cheyenne.
Despite her surprise, Cheyenne was happy for her ex and even talked about her relationship with Taylor and Cory saying,
“It’s definitely one big, weird, blended, dysfunctional family… “I actually helped them plan their gender reveal and gave them all the vendors and places to call. People hear that and they’re like, ‘You helped your child’s father plan their new child’s gender reveal?’ and it sounds so weird but it works for us.”
She added, “I would take our situation over us hating each other any day. It might be weird to some people, but it works for us.”
Cory has also been sharing his journey to becoming a second-time dad with his social media followers.
Although many fans enjoyed seeing Cory and Cheyenne’s interactions and were probably hoping for a reconciliation, he asked that fans respect his relationship.
After sharing that he and Taylor moved in together and that they were also expecting a baby, he shared a note on Instagram (via E! News) saying,
“I’m really excited to share this journey with you guys. All that I ask from you guys is respect for Taylor, respect for me and most importantly respect for the baby. All that I want is a healthy baby that is brought into a very positive environment and surround by good energy and love. The same way that I am raising Ryder.”
“This is a very exciting time for mine and Taylor’s families. Never did I think by 28 I would have two children but here we are.”
And speaking of two children, Cheyenne also shared Ryder’s reaction after hearing the news about her new baby sister.
The former Teen Mom revealed on Twitter that “Ryder waited up extra late to hear the good news. God is good she’s so excited.”
Ryder waited up extra late to hear the good news ❤️ God is good she’s so excited 🙏🏾
