Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are expecting a baby. The child, who the couple recently revealed is a girl, is the second for the Teen Mom pair who welcomed their first child, daughter Carly, in 2009.
Months before giving birth, Lowell sat down with her Teen Mom co-stars Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, as well as the stars of Teen Mom 2, including Kail Lowry, Jenelle Evans, Chelsea Houska, and Leah Calvert for the latest MTV special Ask The Moms. During the show, Lowell revealed whether or not she thought Carly would be resentful of her and Baltierra’s new baby.
“I don’t think so just because it’s such an open adoption, she’s going to understand where I was at the time that I was I was pregnant with her,” Lowell told her co-stars, according to a sneak peek of Ask The Moms via an Oct. 2 report by Wetpaint Entertainment. “That I was 16 living with my alcoholic mom and Tyler’s crackhead dad.”
After discovering her first pregnancy, Lowell and Baltierra were featured in an episode of 16 & Pregnant. On the show, fans watched as the couple made the difficult decision to allow their daughter be adopted by a couple who were unable to have children of their own. Although it was an extremely difficult decision, Lowell and Baltierra knew they were doing what was best for Carly.
Years later, Lowell and Baltierra are in a much better place. In addition to having stable jobs, they recently bought a home and each have their own vehicle. In other words, they are completely ready to become parents and are excited about their future with their new daughter.
“I’ve come a long way from when I had her. It’s totally different,” Lowell added. “I can understand, I feel like every adopted child probably wonders why. I just feel like if you explain it right then she’ll really understand. But we’ll see.”
In April, Lowell and Baltierra spoke to In Touch Weekly, revealing plans for baby no. 2.
“I would’ve felt guilty if I got pregnant again when Carly was 1 or 2. But we’ve both been yearning for this,” Lowell said at the time. “We’re ready to have a baby!”
“We have no doubt that raising a child will be hard. But I know we’re going to be really great parents,” Baltierra added.
Lowell and Baltierrra confirmed their pregnancy last month on Instagram. Along with the first photo of her baby bump, Lowell wrote, “#it’sofficial #4months @tylerbaltierramtv.” While Lowell hasn’t revealed many details since, she did hint that her daughter’s name will start with a “V.”
Ask The Moms airs on Oct. 6 on MTV.
