Jordan Ward is no longer 16.

But she's pregnant once again.

The former MTV reality star has announced via Instagram that she's expecting her third child at some point this fall.

The 24-year old took followers by surprise on Monday when she shared a snapshot of her baby bump and included a simple caption along with it:

"Sep 2017," Ward wrote, along with a pair of heart emojis.

She later confirmed that she's 19 weeks along and that a baby boy is growing inside of her womb. How exciting, right?!?

"This one's hard! I have no name ideas," she replied to a fan who told her she typically picks out "cute names" for her kids, adding:

"I had the perfect girl name picked out! Lol oh well."

Ward is already the mother to a son named Noah and a daughter named Ari.

She appeared on 16 and Pregnant way back in 2011, anchoring one of the highest-rated episodes in show history, as cameras followed her in the weeks and days leading up to the birth of her son.

Ward later married her first baby daddy, Brian Finder, with whom she also shared little Ari.

The couple divorced in 2016.

She tagged new baby daddy/boyfriend Manny Hinkson in her pregnancy announcement photo, making it clear to the world that the two are set to become parents together.

Here is a photo of Hinkson from Facebook.

Looks like quite the keeper, doesn't he?

Upon meeting and falling for Ward last year, Hinkson wrote the following on Instagram:

"I believe I might of found the love of my life. Please believe I won’t let any corny ass white county folk dictate any of my moves.

"I’m here, been here and ain’t going nowhere. Kill em with kindness and bury em with a smile (thanks baby girl) I’ll keep on loving and living without judgment or ignorance."

Sort of sweet, we guess.

With this news, Ward will soon join Maci Bookout and Leah Messer as ex-16 and Pregnant stars who have at least three kids.

As previously reported, MTV is actually looking to cast new stars for another version of this controversial program, much to the chagrin of at least one past 16 and Pregnant personality.

"I do not think MTV should continue to find new teen moms," Mackenzie McKee recently said, adding by way of explanation that a teenager might now get pregnant simply for a "shot at fame."

McKee said that these fame-seekers don't comprehend "the sacrifices you must make to raise your child," distracted instead by the possibility of a year or two of celebrity.

She's not entirely wrong.

But that's a discussion for another time. For now, we'll just say this:

Congrats to Jordan Ward!
