JUST WHEN YOU THINK YOU'VE HEARD OF EVERY TWIST OF EVERY KIND OF PREGNANCY, TLC IS GIVING US A NEW ONE TONIGHT, WITH THE DEBUT OF ITS REALITY SHOW, "MY TEEN IS PREGNANT AND SO AM I." HOW THE BABY BUMPS ARE JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE MOTHER/DAUGHTER DUOS. YOU'RE 17 YEARS OLD. THAT IS MINE. Reporter: IT'S THE LATEST STITCH IN THE RICH TAPESTRY OF THE REALITY TEEN PREGNANCY DRAMA. TLC'S "MY TEEN IS PREGNANT AND SO AM I," CHRONICLES THE JOURNEY OF TEEN MOTHERS WHOSE OWN MOTHERS ARE SUSPECTING AT THE SAME TIME. HOW DID YOU REACT WHEN YOUR MOM TOLD YOU SHE WAS PREGNANT?

IT WASN'T UNTIL WE SAT DOWN WITH LIZ, THAT GREAT- GRANDMOTHER PAT BECAME CLEAR TO HER. Reporter: TELL ME ABOUT THE CYCLE THAT YOU'RE A TEENAGE MOM. YOUR DAUGHTER IS A TEENAGE MOM.
