'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.

The mother is young and she will have more kids and if she has them by him they won't look anything like that child! Like I said if the child knows the truth and has something to relate to then fine. But having a faulty DNA test is NOT the answer. They can learn to clean and parent. But to lie to that child is more criminal than anything! Do the test AGAIN it's not his child! I only hope that it wasn't done wrong for tv.

If she looked like the dad I don't think that people would react this way(complexion disregarded). In real life how many kids do you know that are darker than both parents? I thought so! I don't know ANY either. NOT ONE! Unless they tanned. LOL

This is the problem with Americans and ignorance. Commentors aren't worried about the issue at hand just if the baby is his or not. I am a multi racial female with very light parents and I came out dark while my younger sister is just as light as a white person. My daughter is often mistaken as hispanic or bi-racial (her dad is black)becasuse she is lighter than both parents. The interesting thing about genes are that you aren't sure how the child will turn out. Just because a parent is white does not mean the child will be light with straight hair. Nor does a child have to look like one parent or the other. Last time I check it was a mix of genes. Please get educated and get rid of this ignorance. I hope they get a reality check because that house was just trifiling.
