First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage ... then comes divorce? Supermodel Nikki Taylor knows the tune all too well. When she was 18, she found herself pregnant with twins and in a failing marriage.

She graces the spring issue of Mom and says: “It was like, ‘Who is this guy I married?’ It was super-hard because I did rush into it.”

Taylor attributes being a teenager with her questionable decision-making: “I was young, and I thought I was in love. So when the babies came, it was not something I signed up for.”

Taylor was divorced by 21. Now she's remarried to race car driver Burney Lamar and part of a modern family -- their daughter, Ceil, is 14 months old and twin boys, Jake and Hunter, are now 15 years old.

Any teen mom readers care to comment? We'd love to hear from you.
