Ebony Jackson is a 17-year-old high school senior from Colorado Springs, Colorado. Her plans to join the military and marry her fiancé, Josh Rendon are halted when she discovers she's pregnant.

The couple visit an Air Force recruitment office and are told that because of the child, only one of them will be allowed to join. The two attend senior prom and argue with Josh's parents over issues of stress, living situations and not preventing Ebony's pregnancy.

On April 29, 2009, Ebony gives birth to her first daughter, Jocelyn Jade Rendon. Shortly after Jocelyn's birth, she struggles to get herself through school, to get the help and support that she needs from Josh and preparing for his upcoming departure to the Air Force as he works to find a job to support his family.

In 2013, she and Josh broke up. Currently, Josh has primary custody of Jocelyn and Jayda. As of 2017, Ebony was engaged to James Baldrick and their first child, Jaelyn Zoria Baldrick was born on June 8, 2015.
