Fans are devastated for her
It’s not uncommon for the cast members to decide that they don’t want more children, or that they simply aren’t at a place in their lives to decide to have more. Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra had to come to the difficult realization that they didn’t have the means to raise a child when they first found out they were pregnant. They ended up putting their first daughter up for adoption. A lot has changed since then, though, and for the past few months, the Baltierras have been very vocal about wanting to have another baby.
Although they’ve been discussing having another child for years now, it wasn’t until recently that they actually decided to start trying. In this season of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn went off of her birth control and revealed that she and Tyler had made the choice to actively try for another baby.
However, as we’ve seen with many of the cast members, the road to a new baby isn’t always an easy one ― it can come with devastating hardships. A recent inside source is now revealing that Catelynn was, in fact, pregnant and suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage, which may have resulted in her path to treatment.
A Hard Loss
After months of discussing the possibility, Catelynn and Tyler recently revealed that they would be actively trying to have another baby. This update has had many fans eagerly awaiting a pregnancy announcement, and ― according to a new preview ― the Teen Mom OG star will even be taking a pregnancy test on camera in the next episode.
Rumors peaked when the preview of the next episode of the series aired, as it seemed to feature a very telling detail. In the clip, Catelynn and Tyler’s daughter Nova is seen wearing a shirt that reads “I’m going to big a BIG SISTER,” and the young mother appears to be presenting her husband with something that looks like a pregnancy test.
Naturally, these details left a lot of viewers confused. With most pregnancies, the cast announces them before the episode even airs, not to mention the fact that Catelynn is currently back in treatment for her depression and childhood trauma.
Reality outlet The Ashley’s Reality Roundup spoke with a source close to the couple who gave devastating insight into the confusing situation.
“It is actually really sad,” the source revealed. “Catelynn got pregnant and surprised Tyler and Nova and then had a miscarriage not long after. That happened right before she went to treatment [in November] when she tweeted about thinking about killing herself.”
They went on to say that “[t]he crew and production staff heard she was about six weeks pregnant when it happened, but no one is 100 percent sure.”
According to The Ashley, that’s when the star went into treatment. However, she still had to do the voiceovers revealing her pregnancy ― an understandably troubling task for the star.
“They don’t do voiceovers until the episode is all done and being edited usually, so Catelynn had to talk about trying to get pregnant and then getting pregnant even after she had the miscarriage,” the source revealed. “We felt badly for her. [The miscarriage] is definitely going to be a big topic on the show. That’s why last week they made sure her voiceover was something like, ‘I’m not telling Tyler I took my birth control out.’”
Catelynn won’t be alone discussing the heartbreak of miscarriages this season; Maci Bookout also revealed this season that she has suffered a recent miscarriage.
