Last night, the Today show's Hoda Kotb and the hunky Dr. Drew Pinsky hosted a reunion of the cast of The Baby Borrowers to discuss the experiment, what the teen parents learned, and more importantly, the "Juno Effect" and the supposed glamorization of teen pregnancy in pop culture. In addition, some of the girls from the Gloucester, MA "pregnancy pact" were interviewed. What was interesting was that the Gloucester girls all denied that there even was a pregnancy pact, and that they only learned about it once it was reported in the media. One of the teens, 17-year-old mom Alexis Silva, appeared on the show with her mother, who also attended Gloucester High School and became pregnant with her first child at 16. It's perhaps evidence that kids are still learning by watching their parents, not by emulating characters, real or fictional.
