We can't wait for the little one!
When you get down to the truth of it, it’s safe to bet that none of the Teen Mom cast members would be famous if they weren’t parents. After all, their parenthood at a young age is the reason they snagged a reality star deal with MTV in the first place. Now that their fame has been established and has increased over the years, their parenthood is still the focus of a great deal of attention. That’s why nothing shakes the Teen Mom fanbase quite like pregnancy announcements.
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have always had difficult experiences when it comes to having children. They faced every difficulty from giving their first child up for adoption to suffering with severe post-partum depression with their second to suffering a miscarriage in their third.
Now, fans are hoping that they can experience a healthy, safe pregnancy. And finally, it looks like the wait may soon be over: this OG couple has just announced that they’re having another baby!
On a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Tyler Baltierra confided in a producer how difficult his wife, Catelynn Lowell, has had it when it comes to her pregnancies. “Unfortunately for Cate, every single pregnancy she’s had has had some sort of trauma with it,” he spilled. “Letting go for Carly, with Nova post partum. That miscarriage was one of the most traumatic things shes ever dealt with.”
It’s no surprise that Catelynn needed a lot of time to heal after suffering her miscarriage, and she took time to seek help from a treatment facility for several weeks to get back on her feet. Now that she’s back home, fans are simply hoping that these two can continue to heal as a couple.
Miscarriages can take quite a toll on anyone, and no fans expected Catelynn and Tyler to be opening up about another pregnancy quite so soon. And yet, they’re already speaking out about it!
Like many Teen Mom stars before them, Catelynn and Tyler headed over to Kailyn Lowry’s podcast, Coffee Convos, to share some insight on their lives with fans. There they discussed mental health, healing, and the future of Teen Mom OG. But they also broached a surprising topic: their next pregnancy.
“I feel way better,” Catelynn told Kailyn, sharing that she is on a new regimen of medication for her mental health. “I did genetic testing and found out that the medication I was on for five years doesn’t even work for me. So they put me on different medications and they seem to be working really well.”
She revealed that many of her mental health problems stem “from the trauma in my past, so I’m going to have to keep digging deep into that.”
It wasn’t long before Kailyn asked the question we’ve all been wondering: are there more children in the future for the Baltierras?
Day By Day
“I want more kids,” Tyler spilled immediately. “I definitely do.”
“We definitely want more kids,” Catelynn agreed. “Especially after the miscarriage and stuff.”
But she added that they’re taking it day by day. “We’re kind of not rushing into things right now, because we were there, and then I had the miscarriage, and then I just went downhill, so I want to make sure that I’m healthy and happy,” she explained. Still, it seems that Nova will have a new sibling one day soon!
In the meantime, the couple wants to work on speaking out about the stigma surrounding mental illness.
