Briana DeJesus, who had big dreams for college, has a supportive mother and sister, but DeJesus' ex-boyfriend, Devoin, has not shown significant interest in the pregnancy. There is some tension in DeJesus' house because her sister became pregnant at the same time, but got an abortion, sending the sisters down two different paths. When the baby girl, Nova Star is born, Devoin is there for the birth, but immediately leaves to play basketball with his friends. As a result, his name is not put on the birth certificate, and he storms out of the hospital when he returns to find that out. Attempts to involve Devoin in the baby's life fail. The episode ends with Devoin agreeing to meet DeJesus and the baby for dinner, and DeJesus being stood up.
