Teen Mom fans shocked after alum reveals she secretly welcomed a baby boy and shares son's name and first photo

TEEN Mom fans have shared their surprise after a show star secretly welcomed a son.

16 & Pregnant alum Whitney Purvis has laid low in recent years after losing custody of her two sons with her ex Weston Gosa.

But the 31-year-old mom returned to social media last month to share the news that she had given birth.

The reality star posted a photo of her infant wrapped in hospital blankets just moments after welcoming him into the world.

Whitney captioned her post with the baby's name, writing: "Collin Adonis," with a red heart emoji.

Fans were stunned to see that the TV personality welcomed another child after her tumultuous custody battle.

"D**n.. didn't know you were pregnant," one admitted.

"What?" another one put shortly.

Others congratulated Whitney, one writing: "What a beautiful baby."

"He is absolutely precious Whit! Congratulations," a second gushed.

"Congratulations he's adorable so happy for you," a third remarked.

Whitney had posted no photos of her pregnancy and hasn't alluded to a new relationship on social media.

Long-time Teen Mom fans may recognize the busy mom from the first season of 16 & Pregnant.

On the show, she gave birth to her first baby boy Weston in 2009 with her then-boyfriend Weston Gosa.

Weston Sr and Whitney then welcomed a second child in 2014, River.

Her sons are now in the custody of their father after living with their grandmother.

In January of 2022, The U.S. Sun exclusively revealed that Whitney had allegedly "threatened to blow her baby daddy's brains out" after losing custody of her two sons.

Her threats to her ex Weston Gosa were allegedly made back in 2018 before she was arrested in 2021 for "terrorist threats."

The U.S. Sun exclusively confirmed that the children's legal and physical custody was transferred fully to their father on April 30, 2018, and granted Whitney visitation rights every other weekend, according to court documents.

Whitney was ordered to pay $353 per month to Weston for child support.

By the end of September 2019, Whitney failed to provide child support for a total sum of $5,648, additional documents showed.

On August 27, 2020, Weston Sr filed a petition for a temporary protective order for him and their children against Whitney.

According to the petition, on August 12, 2020, Whitney arrived at Weston's residence to pick up River when he noticed she didn't have a car seat for their at-the-time five-year-old son.

The report said he offered to give her money for one, which she declined.

Following an argument, Weston claimed Whitney then went to his wife's place of work and caused a scene by "being belligerent and was asked to leave by a manager."

Weston claimed she then returned to his residence to threaten him that she would "blow [his] brains out" and "make [him] a widow."

On September 3, 2020, a restraining order was granted for Weston Sr. and his family against Whitney.

The restraining order was effective from September 3, 2020, to September 2, 2021.

Whitney "threatened to slit her ex's throat and poison him" in alarming text messages sent before her arrest for "terroristic threats."

The U.S. Sun confirmed Whitney, 31, was booked on October 14, 2021, for the shocking felony from an incident that occurred on September 27, 2021, according to Bartow County, Georgia jail records.

According to the police report obtained exclusively by The U.S. Sun, on September 27, 2021, around 8am Central Time, a Bartow County Police officer was dispatched to the Bartow County Jail in reference to a threats report.

When the officer arrived, Whitney's ex-boyfriend told the officer he was being threatened by messages on his phone he received in the morning from Whitney.

Her first message stated: "I swear, if it is the last thing I do, I'm gonna kill you."

The officer reported the message included the details: "'Slit your throat, poison you, make you inhale toxic gas,' and other various things."

While the officer was present, Whitney called her ex's phone number.

The officer spoke with Whitney, stating his position, and asked her why she sent the threatening messages.

According to the report, Whitney claimed she was motivated to send them because her ex "had cheated on her, beat her, and humiliated her."

Whitney told the officer she had intentions of going to the Bartow County Sheriff's Office to file a report against Mason.

Evaluating the events, the officer wrote in his report: "Due to the messages and Whitney admitting to sending the messages, I secured a warrant for Felony Terroristic Threats for Whitney's arrest."

Whitney was booked on a charge of "a felony of Terroristic Threats and Acts" on October 14, 2021.

Whitney was released the following day, October 15, 2021, on a $5,000 bond.

The U.S. Sun reached out to Whitney, but she did not respond to a request for comment.
