'16 & Pregnant' Couple

Allowed to See Their Kid Again

... Under Supervision

10/12/2011 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "16 & Pregnant" couple who had their daughter taken away by authorities last month -- because their house was covered in feces -- finally saw their kid again this week ... and TMZ has obtained pics of the happy 4-hour reunion.

As we previously reported, the Department of Human Services in Arkansas took away Joshua and Ebony Rendon's 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn ... after discovering the couple's deplorable feces-smeared living conditions -- and police then arrested them for child endangerment.

But the couple has since cleaned up their act -- and in return, DHS has awarded them visitation of their daughter twice a week ... for two hours at a time ... with a supervisor.

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, E & J are serious about regaining full custody of their girl -- and to prove they mean business .. they've enrolled in parenting classes and therapy.

A court date has been set for November 10th to decide if they'll get their daughter back.

Some of you guys are ignorant. The mother is black and the father is white. That is why the child has darker skin than her father.

If they are on the 16 and pregnant reality show then I am assuming they get paid?! What the hel* are the doing with the money? I would think they could afford some real hand soap in the bathroom instead of some generic dish soap and maybe a Tv stand for their Daughter;s room etc. Ever heard of Target or even Family Dollar :)

Before I read any posts my first reaction was that guy needs to have a DNA test done right away.


No doubt she's the mother but the odds are he is NOT the father.

UMMMMMMMMMMMMM that is NOT the father DNA ,PATERNITY needed right away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! the military will do it FREEE. There was a question about it when they were dating...the mother is mixed black and white....and that baby is still too black looking...sorry. I can see the baby being a little too light.......but that baby definitely is a little tooooooo dark. And I am sure everyone else who posted knows exactly what I am talkin' bout. YOU ARE NOT THE FATHER!

Is he retarded? She's only half black herself and he's white but the baby looks more black than her. He is clearly not the father and clearly they both aren't working with a full deck! They need to keep that baby away from both of them.

wow ew    

yes that's his daughter, it's one of those rare cases when a biracial child comes out darker than even her mother (at least when the child is half black) . i remember watching these 2 in a re run of 16 and pregnant. They had a good thing and ****** it up.

Joshua Rendon is the father of Jocelyn. On an update episode of '16 and Pregnant', Ebony and Joshua spoke about the doubts that Joshua's parents had about him being the father. His parents didn't think she looked like him at all. Ebony was adamant that he was the father and that there wasn't anyone else that could be, so she got a DNA test done, and it was proven that he is, indeed, the father of baby Jocelyn.

Personally, I believe that they are serious about getting her back, and will continue to improve themselves. I loved them on '16 and Pregnant', so hopefully they will be able to organize their home and do what is best for their family unit.

They did a paternity test and yes he is the father. Its crazy how genes work because the baby is darker than both of them!

Just FYI, there was a paternity test done on Jocelyn at Josh's family's request. He is in fact 100% her dad.

Can someone please tell me why this guy hasn't been discharged from the military yet? At our base here, you could never get away with that crap.
