"I thought the reunion went okay," he said of the show, which aired Monday, June 25. "I was hoping for more of a resolution, but I learned you can't force those things. I'm not the perfect person and I'm not trying to be. I'm just trying to be me."
He explained how it "sucks" that he can't see Braeson again despite Jaramillo promising he will always be in his life. "I'm just happy he still has the name I gave him," he said. "I'm happy he's being loved by two people who want the best for him. Honestly, I don't think I'll ever see him again."
He added, "I think that Braeson is in good hands with Brianna and she will never let anybody harm her son in anyway." As for Jaramillo's new boyfriend Robert, who has been helping her raise Braeson, he said, "This new guy is just another one of her boyfriends to me."
On the show, Young opened up about his transition from female to male. He revealed on an episode that he is going to begin taking hormones. "It's a lot of interesting small changes," he said. "I'm doing really good honestly. I'm dating, but I'm not looking for anything serious. Nobody really catches my eye."
On the reunion show, Young apologized for his erratic behavior towards Jaramillo during and after her pregnancy. "It was just a lot," he said on the show. "I was taking a lot of my anger out on Brianna. I have made some mistakes. I wasn't the perfect person. I did treat you terribly and I do apologize for that."
But Jaramillo refused to accept his apology, as she instead accused him of being drunk while babysitting Braeson after their split. "I told him I would let him see Braeson even if we broke up," she said. "I did... I kept my word. I let him have him for overnight. I had calls constantly, 'I can't make this baby stop crying. What do I do.' He couldn't take care of this baby. And then I find out the next day he got drunk with my son there."
Although Young's mom denied her son was drunk, Jaramillo claimed, "He told me he was drunk!"
