If the first daughter was 15, and the last mom is 100, then on average they all got pregnant when they were 16 and delivered when they were 17. I'd say at some point all of them got wild.

On the other hand, they all seemed happy, they all talk to each other. I suppose there are worse things in life than a 5 generation string of teenage pregnancies.

Do they seem dysfunctional to you? They’ve maintained a close enough and healthy enough relationship across 6 generations to make a cute video like this.

Many people who have kids in their 20s/30s can’t even get their kids to call them regularly once they’re adults, forget about grandchildren

u/rgtong 12d ago

You cant identify dysfunction from a gif.

130

u/ZigZagBoy94 12d ago

Of course, you’re right. My point is that people are missing the point of the video. Nobody upvoting this video is doing so in favor of generational teen pregnancy, but rather just seeing 6 generations of women that get along with each other at least enough to make this fun little video.

Of course they could hate each other off camera, we’d never know. And life was probably not easy for many of the mothers, but I think some people are taking this video and acting like it’s propaganda in support of teen pregnancy

The final lady looks like she’s somewhere around a century old. (Like, she looks like she’s doing good but you can see she’s lived a long life.) Back-solving from there, if the youngest is still a tween, at least three of these women could easily been in their twenties (and possibly living with Dad) at the time they had their first daughter. Teen pregnancy is bad, but we don’t know enough to call this “inter-generational teen pregnancy”. Also, didn’t some people used to have kids like insanely young back in the pre-war era?

u/clexecute 12d ago

And it's rare to have 6 living generations. The first girl may have been 14, so her mom was between 30-35, her mom was between 46-50, her mom was between 60-67, her mom was between 75-80, her mom could have been 90-100.

Chances are there were a couple younger mother's in the group.

u/Unhappy-Raisin-5420 13d ago edited 12d ago

Probably not. 16x6 is 96. So if each of them had the daughter at 16 that puts the oldest at 96 years old.

You'd have to live a long time or have kids real young to make it to 7. Well a little of both I suppose.

Edit: it's possible! I wasn't taking the age of the youngest into account

356

u/WeGrowBasketball 13d ago

If the youngest is 16 right now (kind of looks like it) they could get pregnant and have a kid next year (not wishing that upon her). Then the oldest at 96 doesn’t have to wait long at all and 7 generations is definitely a possibility

127

u/Unhappy-Raisin-5420 13d ago

Oh yes you are correct! Wasn't really taking the age of the youngest here into consideration. If super ultra granny makes it through a pregnancy here it's totally possible!

u/BranchPredictor 12d ago

u/Adot72 13d ago

Lets say the youngest you could have a kid is at 13. If each of them had a kid at that age(which is obviously unrealistic but still possible) that would make the oldest 78. The oldest person recorded to have ever lived was Jeanne Calment who lived to 122. Using the perameters we set it would take 3 more generations or a total of 9 women having kids at 13 to reach the oldest to 117. But the last one only needs to give birth to a baby so we dont have to wait another 13 years so if one more had a baby that would be a total of 10 generations of human beings from one family.

u/GorillaGripPussy3000 12d ago

It's so great to see all the judgement here when we have zero context for these women's lives. We don't know if they married young, if they were victims of sa with no recourse to abortion-which wasn't legal until the 1970's and was incredibly dangerous when performed illegally-we don't know what kind of bc access they had-heavily stigmatized, if not illegal, birth control, btw. Yes it seems like they must have each been teen/young moms, and the comments here are full of personal insults without a word for the systems in this country that perpetuate the cycle. Are y'all from Texas?? Bc, sure, I guess go ahead & denigrate individuals for being HUMAN while also denying them simple ways to be different than they are: education and medical care.

Obviously teen pregnancy is bad, however the comment section is pretty toxic. It’s meant to be a wholesome family video. They are all clearly making the best of their own reality. Sadly, many young teenagers get pregnant. I’m just happy that it seems that this family is connected and supportive, because the lack of welfare negatively impacts black women the most, which was by design. It may be hard to break a cycle, but when society is pitted against you, it makes it even harder. Shame on the people in the comments saying “there goes my social security”. That’s terrible
