TEEN Mom star Malorie Beaver has opened up about her pregnancy and pleaded with her followers for support in a new post.
The reality star – who is already a mom to a 3-year-old daughter, Emerson, with her late ex-Lane Fernandez – shared the news via Snapchat.
Malorie posted a close-up snap of herself looking nervous while celebrating the Fourth of July weekend.
She wore a red, white, and blue headband and matching beaded necklaces to the outdoor event as she appeared to be sitting underneath a party tent.
The 21-year-old revealed she’s expecting in her caption: “They got my pregnant a** on the lawn today yall come see me and give me all the $$$$.”
Her caption was not the only part that drew fans’ attention.

Eagle-eyed fans thought the star was vaping as her hand was balled up in a fist near her mouth with her lips tucked under.
One social media user commented: “Is she vaping?”
A second user had the same thoughts: “I truly wish I could say she has changed and was raising her daughter, became a good mom. But she is clearly vaping in this picture…so…”
A third pointed out the concerning nature of the post, writing: “While shes vaping.”

Others bashed Malorie for asking her followers for money in her pregnancy reveal.
“Begging for money, bragging she’s pregnant and yet doesn’t have custody of her fordt because she chose drink, drugs and men! Feel like sending her some pitty change!” one wrote.
“Didn’t she refuse to raise the first one?! Why is she expecting money? Trash pile,” said another.
“For the benefit of everybody involved in the situation (especially her little one), I really hope not,” another remarked.
“Another great life decision brought to you by the Beaver sisters,” one fan said, mentioning her sister, Rachel Beaver, who is also a young mother.
Malorie’s pregnancy announcement comes weeks after her baby daddy, Lane’s tragic death.
The MTV star died just three weeks after welcoming his newborn son Nolyn alongside his wife, Kylee Rose.
NASTY CUSTODY WAR
Fans are familiar with Malorie and Lane’s troubled past as they have battled heavily over the custody of their daughter.
In July of last year, Malorie slammed Lane and his wife on Facebook and revealed she was keeping her daughter from them, saying the toddler hadn’t seen her father and stepmother since Easter.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Kylee claimed they hoped to obtain custody after being blocked from Emerson.
She said at the time: “We ask Malorie to see her and she has us blocked. When she chooses to unblock us she ignores us or says ‘oh Emerson doesn’t want to talk to you.’
“Emmy has a father and stepmother that care about her so much and love her unconditionally. Malorie chooses to let her jealousy get in the way of her child’s happiness, and that’s not only sad but low as a mother.”
On Facebook, Malorie said her daughter is “terrified of her father,” and he has “done nothing but hurt us and our family.”
Kylee told The Sun of the allegation: “Emerson isn’t scared of her father that’s plain to see. He’s always so supporting and loving.
“On Easter, she had so much fun. Malorie was able to call whenever she wanted, she FaceTimed her when she wanted, everything was alright. I mean Emerson always has a blast at our house! As if my pictures and videos don’t say enough.
“We are here for Emerson. We always have been!”
The mom of one has also faced legal troubles as she was previously arrested for DUI and domestic violence.
Malorie was arrested for attacking her grandma while intoxicated last February.
As a result of her incident, the TV star was arrested for domestic assault and released on a $1,000 bond.
Malorie then faced her DUI charge last August as The Sun exclusively reported that she had “crashed into a tree” and was so intoxicated that she “had trouble understanding and answering simple questions.”

In March, the TV personality boasted about making “grown up moves” as she showed off the keys to her new home.
She also posted a video inside the property, appearing to be the start of renovations and decorations.
