Parenting can be an immense challenge, particularly when one becomes a parent at a very young age. Such was the case for Maddie Lambert, who found out she was going to become a mother at just 14 years old. Despite the challenges that lay ahead, Maddie decided to embrace motherhood and actively share her journey on social media. She began to show teenagers her age that it was possible to be a great parent, even at a young age.
Maddie is an American video blogger who hosts a vlog called “Forever”. Her channel has amassed over 1.5 million subscribers, a remarkable feat for someone so young. In her videos, the 15-year-old candidly shares what her daily life is like, showcasing both the ups and downs of parenting. While her content is not stylized or edited to perfection, it reflects the reality of being a young mother.
It’s important to note that Maddie’s content does not encourage teenagers to become parents at a young age. Instead, she wants to show girls in similar situations that they are not alone and that everything can be handled. Maddie believes that pregnant teens should be supported and not judged. She has said, “You don’t have to support pregnant kids, but you have to support pregnant kids.”
Maddie found out she was pregnant when she began experiencing symptoms that she initially thought were related to depression. She had recently broken up with her first serious boyfriend and was scared to face motherhood alone. However, deep down, Maddie knew she had the strength to handle it. Despite the challenges, Maddie embraced motherhood and loved her little daughter with all her heart from the very beginning.
Fortunately, Maddie had the support of her mother who stood by her side throughout her pregnancy and motherhood journey. When Maddie’s mother found out that her 14-year-old daughter was pregnant, she assured her that they could handle it together. She told Maddie, “You will be fine. I like kids. We can handle it. You are a strong girl. Don’t back down and look to the future. We’ll make a map.”
After a difficult pregnancy, Maddie gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Everly. Maddie is a proud mother and is grateful for her daughter’s presence in her life. Despite the challenges of being a young mother, Maddie has shown that with love, support, and determination, anything is possible.
