TLC‘s Unexpected franchise was back with its fourth season. Much like the show’s previous iterations, this season also took a raw look at three teenage pregnancies and how it affected the couple and their families as they prepared for the unexpected arrival of babies.
One of three couples whose stories were told in this season was Myrka Cantu and her fiance Ethan Ybarra, a former model. Myrka, who got pregnant at the mere age of 15, had to prepare for a baby while keeping her relationship intact. Would Myrka be able to keep her relationship with her soon-to-be husband strong or Would the pregnancy take any toll on her personal life?
Get a little idea about that in the wiki below. Also, get insights into Myrka’s general wikis, net worth, and job information.
Myrka Cantu Age, Birthday, Zodiac
The unexpected star Myra Cantu was born on January 4, 2004, which meant her age, as of January 2021, was only 17. TLC‘s Unexpected official Instagram wished her a very happy 17th birthday on January 4, 2021. According to her birthdate, her zodiac sign is Capricorn.
Myrka Cantu Wiki — Parents, Siblings, Hometown
Myrka Cantu was born and raised in her hometown in Texas. She is of Hispanic origin.
Myrka had a decent upbringing from her parents. She may have reconciled and enjoyed a very good relationship with her mom, Liliana, as of this writing. What’s more, she received tons of care and support from her mother as a child.
Myrka also has a younger brother as her only sibling. She took care of him when her mom was busy with her job.
To those still unfamiliar with Myrka’s mom— Liliana Cantu Villarreal is a native of Brownsville, Texas. Later, she lived in Harlingen, Texas. She attended Mercedes High School. Likewise, as of Jan 2021, Liliana worked at the Payne Weslaco Chevrolet. While Lupe Cantu is her father, she is also siblings with a brother named Jamie Cantu. Find her on Instagram @lilly_cantu0515.
Myrka lost her grandmother, Juana Villarreal Garcia, and aunt, Aunt Sanjuana Cantu Villarreal. TLC also paid a special tribute to the lost soul on the January 10th episode of Unexpected.
Height, Weight, Distinct Features
Though Myrka has few scars or stretch marks, she feels really grateful to God that she was blessed with such a beautiful body.
Myrka Cantu stands tall at a height of 5 feet 4 inches. Meanwhile, she weighs no more than 51 kilograms. Furthermore, her distinctive features include brown colored hair and eyes.
Social Media Reach: Instagram, Facebook, YouTube
Myrka is fairly popular on social media. As of January 2021, she is available on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
Her Instagram handle, which she has kept private, boasts 858 followers as of this writing. She also has a YouTube channel named “EthanVSMyrka,” which has 678 subscribers. The channel did not have any content as of January 2021.
Myrka Cantu Education, Job, Unexpected
Before the shooting of Unexpected began, Myrka was still a high school student. Therefore, it is highly unlikely Myrka did any high-paying jobs at the time.
While it is a mystery how much the Unexpected cast earns for one episode, TLC paychecks range from $1000 an episode to all the way to $10,000. That being said, the previous cast-member of Unexpected, Myrka Cantu, did post an emotional video on how she was depressed because of the money problems.
Given that the show is fairly new and is not as popular as similar shows like MTV‘s Teen Moms, the paychecks for the cast might be a little underwhelming.

Myrka Cantu & Ethan Ybarra: Baby Name, Engaged, Still Together?
Myrka fell pregnant shortly after she got engaged with Ethan Ybarra on March 10, 2019. The information would not have been known had Myrka not posted the engagement date with a ring on the side in her Instagram bio.
As soon as Myrka’s mom knew about the pregnancy, she kicked Myrka out of their Texas home. Ever since then, Myrka began living with her boyfriend Ethan at Ethan’s home.
While over time, Myrka’s mom came to terms with her daughter’s pregnancy, she revealed she still would not be spending any mom for the coming baby since she believes it is “coming to ruin Myrka’s life”.
Contrary to Myrka’s parents, Ethan’s parents have been supportive ever since they heard about the pregnancy. On the 10th January 2021 episode, Ethan’s parents threw an extravagant gender reveal party, which was also graced by Myrka’s mom.
In the same gender reveal party, it was revealed to the viewers that the baby in Myrka’s womb was a girl. Around Fall 2020, she and Ethan welcomed their daughter. The couple, however, didn’t share the baby’s name.
As of January 2021, Myrka’s relationship with her fiance Ethan was still going very strong. Now that Myrka’s mom had also come to terms, the duo has nowhere to go up.
