Allison "Allie" Mendoza is from New Jersey, but resides in Pasadena, Texas. She is pregnant by her boyfriend Joey Aranzeta. Mendoza and Aranzeta both live with Aranzeta's mother, Yolanda, and his younger brother Damian in Yolanda's house. Aranzeta's mother was a teenager and a drug addict when she had Joey, leading to her mental instability. After an incident where Aranzeta's mother almost attacks Mendoza over a banana, the couple realizes that Aranzeta's mother's home is very unstable for their child. Aranzeta's grandmother offers to take them in (as a last resort), which turns into another screaming match for Aranzeta's mother and Mendoza. Mendoza gets induced and gives birth to a son they name Aydenn Anthony Aranzeta on December 17, 2010. Aranzeta later fails to live up to the responsibilities of being a parent, so Mendoza eventually ends things with him and went to live with her friend Ashley, taking her child with her.
