“I was told multiple times over and over that I couldn’t get pregnant just from my scars holding me back, other physical things going on with my body,” Brookins says on The Tyra Banks Show, airing Wednesday. “I was always told I was never going to be able to conceive children.”

The 18-year-old Cycle 12 contestant — who had suffered second- and third-degree burns all over her body when she was eight months old and has since endured 14 surgeries to treat her wounds — was surprised by the news.

“My initial reaction to my pregnancy was shock,” she says, adding that she and her boyfriend, David Michaels Jr., 18, had been going through a hard time.

Why is Tyra celebrating yet another unplanned, unwed, soon-to-be single mother?
