MTV The "Teen Mom OG" star said God helped put him in the position he finds himself.

Congratulations are in order for “Teen Mom OG” star Cory Wharton and his girlfriend, Taylor Selfridge. The couple announced they are expecting their second child on June 8.

“We will welcome a new member to the family! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my 31st birthday,” Wharton wrote. “Each one of my kids have continued to push me into making me a better man, so I know you’re gonna do the same.”

“Throughout the years the satisfaction I get from raising my two lil girls is unmatched. The joy that they bring me, the excitement is unmatched. I truthfully feel like God has put me in a position that I’m so lucky & blessed to be in,” he wrote. “As a kid my dad wasn’t able to be around, and I feel like that’s why I try and give you girls EVERYTHING that I have. I can’t wait to watch you grow with your sisters Ryder & Mila.”

Wharton, 30, shares a 5-year-old daughter, Ryder K, with his ex, “Teen Mom OG” star Cheyenne Floyd. His second daughter, 1-year-old Mila, is from his relationship with Selfridge.

In November 2021, Wharton revealed he would be quitting “The Challenge,” an MTV competition show so he could spend time with his family.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Selfridge knew she was pregnant when her boyfriend quit the competition series, but rumors about Selfridge expecting a second child have swirled since December 2021.

Selfridge, 27, was fired from “Teen Mom OG” in June 2020 over “past racist statements.”

The couple first met in 2017 while filming the MTV reality series “Ex on the Beach.”

Wharton Promised His New Baby They Would Be Loved


Wharton said his third child would be loved by their sisters.

“I’m telling you right now both those girls love you so much,” he wrote.

The former “Challenge” star also penned a special message for his girlfriend.

“Taylor, I don’t know too many people to put up with me for as long as you have 😂 but no seriously, I love you bby & I can’t wait to start this adventure with you and continue to build this family up,” he said.

Selfridge Said She Was ‘Meant’ to Be a Mother

In an announcement on her own Instagram page, Selfridge said she couldn’t believe her daughter, Mila, was about to be a big sister.

“My whole life I knew I was meant to be a mother, I love my babies more than anything in this world,” she wrote. “My heart grew twice the size and I knew I’d love you just the same as your sisters. I can’t wait to see your little face.”

Selfridge finished her post by expressing her love for her boyfriend.

“Cory, I love you. I know everyone knows this but I know the best, you are really the most amazing father,” she said. “You always put a smile on my face when you’re with our girls & they love you so so much. I know this next one will be a new adventure for us but I know we can do anything together.”
