'16 & Pregnant' Mom Allegedly PUNCHES Baby Daddy

4/20/2011 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the young moms on the new season of MTV's "16 & Pregnant" came face to face with cops  Monday after allegedly socking her baby daddy in the cheek during an argument ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... cops in Hillsborough County, Florida responded to a battery call at the home of 19-year-old Josh Smith ... after he was allegedly attacked by the mother of his twins,17-year-old Jennifer Del Rio.

We're told Smith gave a statement to police ... explaining that he was trying to break things off with Jennifer ... when she became "irate" and "punched him in the face and pulled on his shirt."

Smith says he eventually pushed Jennifer away in self-defense.

Cops took a report -- but so far, neither Del Rio nor Smith have been arrested. 

It's not the first time these two have dealt with the cops -- Smith was arrested back in November for allegedly attacking HER ... and was ordered to complete a domestic violence program.

"baby daddy"

Society will soon converse with only a series of grunts and obscene gestures.

Evolution in reverse.

No wonder chivalry is dead.
Punk girls who take up with punk males deserve no sympathy.
She got what she asked for.

I am pretty certain we could all figure out why Sheen didn't get custody. Good decision. For the children's sake, let's hope at least one of these parents grows up and puts the children first. Charlie---you aren't winning anything!

"We did it for the show"-balloon boy all over again. Was it filmed by MTV? Was it scripted? Is this another publicity gimmick to get better ratings and was she paid to punch him?Does she represent all teenage moms and wants to be the new role model on how to act? Did she take a course on conflict resolution;obviously not!

He got the sex, but like any guy who can't be a man, he dosen't want the responsibility. He's trying to cut bait and run.

If she did it, they better plan on sending her to a complete domestic violence program just like they did him. I'm a woman but I am sick and tired of girls being able to beat up on men knowing they are not permitted to fight back and getting away with it.

WTF is up with the guys nose? It's slanted to the left (his left) so bad. Maybe he's doing the show to go get rhinoplasty.

I guess I'm old fashioned. I don't understand why MTV, or any show, would glorify a pregnant 16 y/o.
