(Scroll down for video) A teenager was very excited to start a new family when she became pregnant.

However, her happiness was short-lived as she was arrested for having sex with an underage boy.

19-year-old Mekenzie Leigh Guffey of Hollywood, Alabama, was charged with raping a 14-year-old boy after she applied for Medicaid and listed him as the child’s father.

According to police, Guffey told detectives that she had sex with the boy several times in her car after she was introduced to him through a mutual friend while they were at a McDonald’s restaurant.

Authorities began investigating Guffey after she applied for Medicaid. She said that she was pregnant and she identified the 14-year-old as the unborn baby’s father.

“She was proud that he was the father until she found out we were going to get involved,” police chief Jason Hepler said.

Guffey was charged with second-degree rape, sex abuse, enticing a child for immoral purposes and traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act.

She also faces possession and dissemination of child pornography charges after police said they found nude photos of Guffey and of the 14-year-old on her phone.

Guffey was book into Jackson County Jail, where he bond was set at $25,300.
