Jordan became a part of the series 16 and Pregnant when it first aired in 2014.
The show highlighted the situation between Jordan, her boyfriend Derek, and her daughter Evie.
The show chronicled the homelessness they faced when Jordan was about to give birth.
It also depicted the strained relationships between Jordan and her family as she sparked a relationship with Derek.
What happened after the show?
After the show, Jordan and Derek parted ways.
As a result, Jordan’s parents had to step in and share guardianship with Derek for a while.
Subsequently, Jordan temporarily signed away her custody rights to Derek’s mother in 2015, since she was allegedly dealing with drug addiction and mental health issues.
Fortunately, Jordan began working on her health and celebrated being one year sober in January 2021 following years of struggling with addiction.
