Popular Unexpected Couple Reveal Relationship Status

TLC viewers first met Myrka Cantu and Ethan Ybarra on the teen pregnancy show Unexpected. When Myrka was just 15-years-old, she found out she was pregnant with Ethan’s baby. The high schoolers decided to keep the baby. Attalie turns one sometime this year. 

However, her birth just played out on Season 4 of the reality show. 

As young, TV-famous parents, Myrka and Ethan face questions about their relationship constantly. During a Q&A last month, she confirmed they were still together. However, between that Q&A and this weekend, the couple went their separate ways. 

Yes, Myrka Cantu & Ethan Ybarra have broken up. What happened? 

Myrka Cantu Responds to Breakup, Domestic Abuse Rumors

Instagram account @tlc.unexpectedteaa received a screenshot of an alleged message between Myrka Cantu and an unnamed person. In the message, Myrka allegedly wrote that Ethan “tried to hit” her during an argument over getting a bottle ready for their daughter. In the screenshot, the message purportedly from Myrka also called her baby daddy a “dead beat.” 

After seeing the screenshot, Myrka Cantu took to her own Instagram Stories to flat-out deny sending the message in question. She wrote that it was photoshopped and not real. 

She made it clear that she would never put Attalie’s father down like that. The original message has since been deleted from @tlc.unexpectedteaa. They replaced it with a screenshot of Myrka Cantu’s denial. We snagged a screenshot from Mykra Cantu’s Instagram.

Did the Split Happen During Tell-All Finale? 

Last week’s part one of the Unexpected Tell-All was an emotional one for Myrka and Ethan. They confronted Ethan’s mom, Michelle, for kicking them out of the family home. Ethan also broke down over his parents splitting up.
