Cory Wharton is taking fans inside one of the most special moments of his life: the birth of his daughter, Mila Mae Wharton.

PEOPLE can exclusively announce the Teen Mom OG At Home: Cory & Taylor’s Baby Special, set to air next month.

The special, created entirely with self-recorded footage, documents the final weeks of the Teen Mom OG star's girlfriend Taylor Selfridge's pregnancy as they face the reality of a global pandemic due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).

With their home state of California under a strict shelter-in-place order, the couple must figure out how to quarantine together and adapt their labor plans. To make matters more complicated, they must also accept the possibility of not having their family with them when Selfridge gives birth in order to abide by safety precautions.

In a sneak peek from the special, Selfridge becomes emotional while imagining being alone in the delivery room.

"What are you scared of?" Wharton asks.

"That they won't let you come in," she says in tears.
