'16 & Preggo' Mom -- My Baby Daddy's a Coke Head

5/4/2011 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 17-year-old mother who was introduced on MTV's "16 and Pregnant" last night claims her baby daddy has a cocaine problem -- and now she's begging a judge for SOLE custody of their daughter.


Jamie McKay filed court docs in North Carolina ... claiming 18-year-old Ryan McElrath is "not responsible and not in a position to provide a stable environment" for their 7-month-old daughter.

In the docs, Jamie claims Ryan has a "history of driving while under the influence of alcohol" and a "history of cocaine abuse" ... and Jamie believes he's been up to no good "even after the birth of the child."050311_pregnant_mtv_still

Jamie wants Ryan to be granted supervised visitation at the local Family Visitation Center -- a court-monitored facility.

Jamie also wants the judge to order Ryan to complete a parenting class and "submit to appropriate drug and alcohol assessments and testing and to comply with all treatment recommendations."

The couple is set to face off in court on June 13.

TMZ spoke with Ryan ... who told us, "She's doing this just to cause problems ... it will all clear out in court."

who dat    

This is the end result when one trailer park inhabitant, hooks up with another. They need to take this child and load it into a T-shirt cannon and fire it into the crowd at any sporting event. Give the child a chance for a happy normal life.

Drug tests can't be a bad idea. if she's lying it shouldn't matter. if she's telling the truth, maybe it will help him get clean.

No one cares about the trash on this show. Please stop reporting on it. All it does is give people stuff to laugh at, showing the most uneducated, poorest, and trashiest people on the planet spreading their legs to pop out kids that are doomed to grow up EXACTLY like their parents.

Well this post should make the lousy Lohans happy, tmz publishing a story about other young people misbehaving and wrecking their FAMILIES b/c of drug and alcohol abuse in their home.

By continually exposing their minors to bad positions and by being unable to provide a stable environment and enough nurturing love to ensure lifelong healthy habits and success...

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ has a "history of driving while under the influence of alcohol" and a "history of cocaine abuse" ...

fill in the blank. Does it sound like somebodies little angel ??

You would think that with all the money MTV pays these teenage tramps, the guy could afford some better clothes.

This Teen Mom show is a joke. It's all about the drama. These girls aren't struggling at all -- they make more money than a lot of us do just for having a kid while they're still in high school.

Boycott this show.

Why comment unless you actually have actually watched the show? First, this girl is not trailer park. She had little to none and a weak father influence at that growing up. She was a very smart straight A student. She made the dumb choice to start dating this idiot, and let me tell you he is an IDIOT! He promised her he would always love her and be with her forever, until he got in her pants. She became pregnant, he continued to party and stay out all night while telling her he would always be there and love her. She went into labor and could not get a hold of him for 5 hours, he shows up reaking of alcohol and looking like hell. He could not get his crap together and did nothing but lie to her. He continued to stay out all night, drink, and do drugs. Oh and during that 5 hours she was in labor, he was out with another girl. He continued to complain he never got to see his child and act like he was upset with his fake tears. He constantly wanted to take the newborn child with him, which seemed weird to me. He has had a dui and does nothing but drink and drug. Do you blame her? I would not let him near a child with a 50 foot pole. This guy is an idiot and I would do everything I could if I was her to keep him away from my child. By the way she is one of the most responsible parents I have seen on the show. She made a immature mistake and ended up pregnant by this fool and now is dealing with the consequences. You make your bed you lie in it. She is one of the best parents I have seen on the show, and he is probably the biggest idiot I have seen on the show.

reality tv is horrible...promotes kids to be stupid and act stupid. stop paying these white trash kids $$$ and they will go away. these kids need adult guidance not $$$ for drugs and alcohol. society needs to stop watching this crap.

You don't suppose she should've used a little common sense and NOT had a baby with him then do you? She knew what she was getting into! She was probably doing the same things as him!! I don't feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for the child that has been brought into an unfortunate situation! What did she think the "bad boy" that she was drawn to was going to change and they'd live happily ever after? I'm sorry but teens that don't have their **** together get no sympathy from me! Now they will spend all their time being spiteful to each other instead of putting that energy into raising their baby. All this while the people that see/read about them get more disgusted by their behaviour every day.
Take the child away and call it a day!!
