The 16 and Pregnant family just keeps growing!
Hope Harbert — who starred on Season 4 of the hit MTV series — just welcomed baby No. 2 with her longtime boyfriend Ben Lagle! The reality TV alum shared the exciting news on her official Facebook page and her adorable baby girl already made her social media debut!
Little Meia Grace was born on Friday, April 28 via C-section and the couple revealed that they chose their little girl’s name in honor of his grandmother who passed away a few years ago. This marks the second child for Ben and Hope — they share their son Tristan together, and he’s so excited to be a big brother! He even got emotional when he met his little sister for the first time.

“He said, ‘Mommy, she's so beautiful,’ and started crying,” Hope captioned a sweet photo taken shortly after she gave birth.
Tristan was also born via C-section, and his birth was documented on Hope and Ben’s episode of 16 and Pregnant, which aired in 2012 — and fans are so excited to hear that Ben is still in his son’s life after all these years.
At the beginning of their episode, Hope explained that she had a crush on Ben and they were hanging out together for about a year — but he was too busy partying to try to pursue a relationship with her. Even though they hooked up a couple of times, Ben completely ignored her until she called him to tell him that she was pregnant.
“When Ben found out I was pregnant, he told me he didn’t want anything to do with me or the baby,” Hope said in a clip from her episode.
But he eventually had a change of heart and he even offered to move Hope into his apartment with him. The couple was able to work things out and even though they’re currently not married or engaged, they’re still going strong nearly five years later.
