The 48-year-old’s daughter is six weeks pregnant with her two-year-old boyfriend and the couple still live with their parents.

“We fought over it, I told her I’d like her to get married, but she’s not interested in getting married,” Cathy said.

“So you’d be happy to be a grandma and have the baby if they got married and moved on in life the way you think it should be?” asked Kyle to which Cathy replied firmly, “Yeah, I want that.” ‘.

“That’s a big call Cathy to say someone has to end their pregnancy because of an outdated belief,” Jackie O replied.

Cathy went on to say she doesn’t believe the young couple is “emotionally ready” for the responsibility of having a baby and she is concerned, without the commitment of the marriage, that her daughter’s boyfriend might leave.

“What if this guy just decides to fuck? Than what? I’m going to be with the baby and the child… It’s the union,” she said.

“I also want her to understand that if she goes through with this, she’s going to have to figure out how she’s going to do this, both of them, financially. How are they going to support a child if she can’t work?’

Although her baby’s father has a steady job, Cathy said he “doesn’t have a high income.”

The shock jock and his co-host presented Cathy’s riddle to their listeners and asked people for their opinions, sparking a heated debate.

Caller Matt joined in and said he thought Cathy was “disgusting” for telling her daughter to terminate her pregnancy.

“You can’t control your daughter’s life, she’s 20 for God’s sake, she’s an adult, not a teenager,” he said.

Another passionate listener agreed with Cathy “100 percent” that he doesn’t think a 20-year-old is responsible enough to have a child.

“It doesn’t matter what anyone says this child will be left to Cathy – the daughter will be so overwhelmed she’s going to say ‘Mommy, you’ll fix it,'” he said.

The conversation heated up when a mother who was having a child at age 21 came along and said she didn’t regret her decision for a moment.

“Who died and made you God?” she said.

“You don’t know Cathy’s daughter, you don’t know what she’s capable of. Cathy doesn’t trust her own daughter to even raise a child.”

After hearing everyone’s opinion, Cathy said she plans to have another conversation with her daughter and her boyfriend to come to a decision that everyone will be happy with.

“It’s a very difficult conversation, it’s a very difficult topic and it’s really not one of us who would want to find ourselves at any point in time,” she said.

“I’ll sit down with her, we’ll try to have another conversation. I’ll sit down with them both and we’ll see if we can work our way through this.’
