A former star of “Teen Mom 3” moved to Utah so she could build a "normal life."

As E! Online reported, Katie Yeager, who starred on the MTV show about teenage mothers-to-be, said she moved from Rock Springs, Wyoming, to Utah so she could build a better life.

"I went to school. I moved to Utah. I was working for a rehab facility and it was just a regular day-to-day life, taking care of my daughter. It was just her and for a long time," she told E! Online.

Yeager said she started working full-time at 16.

But these days she has a more important job: working as a stay-at-home mom.

“Being home with my girls right now is important to me,” she said. "Right now it's summer, so we do silly things throughout the week. Monday is 'make something Monday' where we do crafts. I am trying to teach her how to make things. On Tuesdays, we go to the library, and we go to the movies on Wednesdays. Fun summer stuff. We live a normal life now."

Back in 2014, a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research found that shows like “16 and Pregnant” and “Teen Mom” led to a 5.7 percent reduction in teen births after the shows premiered, according to CNN.

The shows accounted for one-third of the overall drop in teen births at the time, CNN reported.
