Parenting is a ʜᴜɢᴇ ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇ, especially if a person becomes a parent at a very young age. This is exactly what happened with Maddie Lambert. She was only 14 when she found out she would be a mom. After the birth of her baby girl, Maddie began to actively engage in social media, showing adolescents of a similar age that if you really want to, you can do it perfectly well. Maddie Lambert is an American vlogger. The teenager runs a vlog called “Foreverlys”. Her channel has already been subscribed to by over 1.5 million fans! It is quite a feat for such a young girl.
On her channel, the 15-year-old honestly shows what her everyday life is like. On the profile, we can see not only stylized photos and videos, but also those that show that it is not easy at all. It is worth noting that a teenager’s publications do not encourage peers to become parents at such a young age. On the contrary, a young mother simply tries to show girls in a similar situation that everything can be dealt with. She wants them to know that they are not alone. Maddie said: “You shouldn’t support ᴛᴇᴇɴ ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ, but you should support ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ teens.”
Maddie became ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ when she was 14. When her first sʏᴍᴘᴛᴏᴍs appeared, she was sure they were related to the ᴅᴇᴘʀᴇssɪᴏɴ that had caused her to break up with her first serious boyfriend. Ultimately, the teenager decided to do a ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ ᴛᴇsᴛ. The result turned out to be ᴘᴏsɪᴛɪᴠᴇ. The girl got sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ, especially since she had just separated from the baby’s father. But in her ʜᴇᴀʀᴛ, she knew she could handle it. She said: “When I actually got ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ, I was so sᴄᴀʀᴇᴅ of the reaction I was going to get, and I did get a lot of ɴᴇɢᴀᴛɪᴠᴇ ʀᴇᴀᴄᴛɪᴏɴs, a lot of hate. Everybody had something to say, and they didn’t hold back.”
She added: “People would say, ‘You’re ʀᴜɪɴɪɴɢ your life’. I had people send me the address to ᴀʙᴏʀᴛɪᴏɴ ᴄʟɪɴɪᴄs when I was about seven months ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴ. Somebody even messaged me saying ‘I hope you guys both ᴅɪᴇ ɪɴ ʟᴀʙᴏᴜʀ’. I took that and I shifted it. I said ‘this is making my life’. The hate made me want to do better and show them that I can be the best mum ever.” Maddie’s determination has paid off. She had her daughter Everly three years ago and says being a parent has ‘sᴀᴠᴇᴅ her life’. The mum explained: “Everly didn’t only change my life, but she sᴀᴠᴇᴅ my life. I sᴛʀᴜɢɢʟᴇᴅ with ᴅᴇᴘʀᴇssɪᴏɴ before and had a sᴜɪᴄɪᴅᴇ attempt at 13, before I got ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ with Everly.”
Despite all the adversities, Maddie was happy and loved her little daughter with unconditional love from the very beginning. The girl was also lucky that her mother was very supportive of everything. The woman said that she would not leave her in such a difficult situation and would do anything to help. In one of her videos, Maddie recalled the words her mother said to her when she found out that the 14-year-old was ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴛ: “Maddie, you’ll be fine. I love kids. We can handle it. You are a strong girl. Don’t step back and look to the future. We’ll manage.” Eventually, after a rather difficult ᴘʀᴇɢɴᴀɴᴄʏ, Maddie ɢᴀᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜ to a beautiful baby girl, whom she named Everly.
