TEEN Mom star Cory Wharton has revealed his plans to have more children with girlfriend Taylor Selfridge in an exclusive interview with The US Sun.
Cory, 32, and Taylor, 29, welcomed their daughter Maya Grace in June 2022. They are also parents to their daughter Mila, three.
The Challenge star separately has a six-year-old daughter, Ryder, with ex Cheyenne Floyd.
The US Sun caught up with Cory at the Rookie USA Fashion Show on September 6, where he, Cheyenne and her husband Zach Davis watched Ryder walk the runway.
When asked if the “Teen Mom” star was ready to have more children, Cory replied, “I definitely want one or two more kids.”
He went on to say that he wanted a boy next time.
“I want a boy. You know I need my boy. So it has to happen,” Cory insisted.
“I mean, Ryder just approached me: ‘Dad, I don’t want to play sports. I want to sing and dance.’
“I said, ‘Oh my heart!’ But I will support her no matter what.”
He continued: “We will get her a singing teacher. We will give her the best dance training, whatever it may be.”

“I’m here to support Ryder and her cause, and I’m just glad this can all happen.”
Ryder has already launched the nail polish line Nails by Ryder K with the help of her mother Cheyenne.
She also has a book titled Ryder K the Mini Boss coming out in April 2024.
For her part, Cheyenne also revealed her plans for baby number three in an exclusive interview with The US Sun.
Cory and Taylor have been through a lot as a couple.
Her daughter Maya underwent open heart surgery in January 2023.
She was diagnosed with a congenital heart disease, tricuspid atresia, when she was born in June 2022.
Cory provided an update, sharing, “My kids are healthy. Health is wealth. So all my children are healthy and it’s a blessing.”
When he was also asked if he and Taylor are planning to get married soon, he replied: “No, we’re fine at the moment, but now there are a few things coming out in the future.”
The duo met in 2017 while filming “Ex on the Beach.” After an on-again, off-again relationship, they announced in February 2019 that they were back together.
TEEN MOTHER RETURNS
Two years later, Cory hinted that she was rehired by MTV after she posted videos of filming with the family.
“Someone’s filming again. I say, NOW you get to see the WHOLE WHARTON FAMILY,” he teased on his Instagram Stories.
Cory spoke about Taylor’s return during his September interview with The US Sun.
“Taylor was a little hesitant. She doesn’t really care about the lights and cameras. But yes, she is happy to be back,” he revealed.
He also addressed his return: “I will return to MTV when the time is right, and maybe sooner than people think.”
“Come on, this is my home. You can’t leave home for too long. I love MTV… That’s what got me here today, so it’s nothing but love.”
While he couldn’t confirm Taylor’s official return to “Teen Mom,” he said he’s always working and always doing projects.
Cory added: “I think the Teen Mom series isn’t going away any time soon. I think there are some other spin-offs you might get.”
“Maybe CBS will ask me to do something too. You never know.”
Cory returned for the second season of The Challenge: USA, which premiered on August 10th.
His ex Cheyenne starred in season 28 of The Challenge, where she first met Cory.
She previously told The US Sun that she was up for anything if it meant being part of another competition show.
Cheyenne declared, “Send me back to the challenge!”
Cory and Cheyenne made it a family affair to support Ryder during New York Fashion Week.
Cory revealed: “I’m so proud of Ryder and her bringing everyone together, that’s what it’s all about. I’m happy about that.”
Ryder joined other celebrity children on the Rookie USA runway, including Adrienne Bailon-Houghton’s baby Ever James, Nicole Polizzi’s daughter Giovanna, Ice T and Coco’s daughter Chanel, and Chanel Iman and Sterling Shepard’s daughters Cali Clay and Cassie Snow.
