There are a lot of reasons why a woman would try to keep her pregnancy a secret. For Bethany on "Secretly Pregnant," it was because she already knew her parents were disappointed in the child's father. She already had one child with Robert, and he had another kid with another woman. Bethany's mother didn't think Robert was doing enough to provide for the children she already had.
As predicted, when Bethany finally broke her silence and told her mother the news, the reaction was about what she expected. After processing the information, her mother simply repeated the phrase, "There's no words."
So upset was she that when Robert and Bethany did decide to get married, Bethany's mother did not attend the wedding. She did, however, make it there for the birth of her grandchild.
But Robert is at least making an effort to support his children. He's taken a job a a grocery store and is making child support payments for his other child, even though it is putting more financial strain on his household.
More stories of women who are "Secretly Pregnant" are presented every Thursday at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Fit & Health.
