When it comes to a show about pregnancies, births, and raising children, it’s no surprise that Teen Mom covers the difficulties and complications that often come along with them, including miscarriages. Over the years, the show has covered numerous miscarriages, and news recently broke that another star had suffered such a loss. However, now she’s setting the record straight.
MTV has captured some of the most beautiful moments in the Teen Mom cast’s lives over the years, but it’s also captured some of the most heartbreaking. Unfortunately, many of the cast members are no strangers to miscarriage, including Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell.
At the time, a source spoke about the event to The Ashley’s Reality Roundup.
“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, “The crew and production staff heard she was about six weeks pregnant when it happened, but no one is 100% sure.”
What’s worse is that Catelynn had to relive the experience as she went forward with filming. “Catelynn had to talk about trying to get pregnant and then getting pregnant even after she had the miscarriage. We felt badly for her,” the source said.
She and her husband, Taylor McKinney were talking about having more children when they revealed the family tragedy.
“We are not having another baby,” Maci told Taylor. “You really want another child?”
“I love kids. I wouldn’t be mad about it,” he replied.
Maci said that she would rather adopt, though she was open to conceiving again.
“If we want it to happen, it’s going to happen like that,” Taylor retorted.
But Maci reminded him that he was “forgetting something” and told him to “think about it.”
Taylor immediately looked upset and excused himself. Then, sitting alone, a producer asked Maci what had happened.
“I had a miscarriage,” Bookout told her. “Her name’s Dandy, Dandelion.”
