The relationship between K.C. Guthrie and Jenna Middleton is known as Kenna (K.C./Jenna). It began in the ninth season of Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Relationship History


Their first relationship began in Heart Like Mine (1), after K.C. decided to break up with Clare Edwards due to his growing attraction to Jenna, and ended in Tears Dry On Their Own (2) when K.C. did not want to be involved with Jenna's pregnancy or his unborn child. They eventually rekindled their relationship in Halo (2). In their first relationship, the two were sexually active, which resulted in a pregnancy. K.C. did not wish to keep the child, urging her to choose abortion, and broke up with her when she revealed that she was too far along in the pregnancy for an abortion. After a few months apart, K.C. reconciled with Jenna, beginning a second relationship. On April 22, 2011, Jenna gave birth to their son, Tyson Guthrie, though they were unable to handle raising him. After a hard couple of months, they tearfully decided to put him up for adoption in Extraordinary Machine (2). Their second relationship ended in Lose Yourself (2) due to K.C.'s infidelity with Marisol Lewis while he and Jenna were dating, and since Tyson was no longer in their care, Jenna saw no reason for them to stay together. They have, however, remained polite towards each other after their break-up. Originally, K.C. thought the adoption was a bad idea and made an attempt to scare the Powells off but eventually realized that it was for the best. K.C. was open about his enduring feelings for Jenna, even bringing her flowers and asking for another chance, which she refused.
