MTV /
Josh Rendon and wife Ebony Jackson-Rendon, seen here in an episode of MTV's "16 and Pregnant," are expecting their second child.

Almost seven months ago Josh Rendon and wife Ebony Jackson-Rendon, one-time stars of MTV's "16 and Pregnant," were arrested after authorities found that the conditions in which they were raising 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn were "deplorable." Their residence, which a police report revealed contained garbage, feces and maggots, was so bad that the Arkansas Division of Children and Family Services took the child away from the couple.

Now, even though they've yet to regain custody of their first child and are only allowed supervised visits, they're expecting another one.

Dad Josh spoke to TMZ and revealed that Ebony is 10 weeks pregnant.

"We are extremely excited for the baby," he said.

Josh insisted he and Ebony have changed their ways. Five months ago, she checked into rehab, and Josh told TMZ they've since taken parenting classes, keep a tidy house and are ready for another child.
