We Need to Talk About How Quickly the Baby Daddies of ‘Teen Mom’ Are Aging

The baby daddies of Teen Mom are an infamous part of the reality TV series. For one, most of them are known for, well, not being very good dads. From drug abuse to missing child support payments, the dads are an endless well of drama. But now that Teen Mom and its predecessor, 16 and Pregnant, have been on the air for over a decade, fans have watched the cast grow and change right before their eyes.

Many of the dads who started off as irresponsible teenagers have grown into successful parents, which is exciting for loyal fans to see. On the flip side, though, watching folks literally grow up on TV means we watch them age, too. We observe them as they transform from awkward, skinny teens to full-fledged adults. And honestly, the baby daddies aren’t looking too hot — especially when you think about the dads’ actual ages and how young they all still are. What’s up with the accelerated aging process anyway?

How big are reality star salaries? Jason Tartick breaks it down with Us Weekly editors.

Although the famous moms have gone through their own transformations, from extreme weight loss to plastic surgery, they’ve all remained reasonably young looking, especially when you compare them with the dads who’ve aged lightning fast. Many of the baby daddies, some who are only as old as 28, look way older. It’s becoming so noticeable that we couldn’t ignore it anymore. We understand people can’t look like skinny teens forever, but some of these baby daddies have changed dramatically in a short amount of time. That’s not to say there’s anything wrong with aging. After all, it’s a natural process that will happen to literally all of us. But it’s a little concerning how quickly the dads have aged in relation to the moms. Don’t believe us? Check out the before-and-after photos below to see what we’re talking about.
