Novalee Reign is seen in a new Twitter photo. Three weeks after her New Year’s Day birth, the daughter of Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra has surfaced online in a cute family photo with the Teen Mom couple’s friend, Dawn Baker.
On January 22, Baker, who was also Lowell and Baltierra’s adoption counselor, shared a previously unseen photo of Novalee Reign.
“TBT to 3 weeks ago when this little darling entered the world #NovaleeReignBaltierra @CatelynnLowell @TylerBaltierra.”
Lowell and Baltierra announced they were expecting in August 2014, just a few months after revealing plans for a baby in an issue of In Touch Weekly magazine.
“I would’ve felt guilty if I got pregnant again when Carly was 1 or 2. But we’ve both been yearning for this. We’re ready to have a baby!”
They weren’t, however, ready in 2009, when they welcomed their first child, Carly, as cameras rolled for MTV’s 16 & Pregnant.
“I was too young when I got pregnant with Carly — I was sad and scared.”
Five years later, things have changed drastically. Lowell and Baltierra have their own home in St. Clair, Michigan, and work full-time jobs, caring for disabled adults.
“We’ve learned from what our parents did wrong. Tyler and I own our own home, have two cars and actually have money to support a kid.”
“We have no doubt that raising a child will be hard. But I know we’re going to be really great parents.”
As the Inquisitr reported, fans will soon learn more about Novalee Reign’s parents, Lowell and Baltierra, when the reality couple releases their upcoming tell-all book.
The Teen Mom couple “will release their highly-anticipated book, titled Conquering Chaos, on March 3, 2015,” Radar Online reported last month.
“Though Lowell, 23, and Baltierra, 22, are often considered the sweetest stars of the MTV franchise, it looks like readers will get a glimpse into their rebellious past.”
“Catelynn and Tyler tell the story in their own words and they leave nothing out, from the wild behavior before MTV to their experiences learning and teaching about adoption. [The book] offers encouragement, hope and proof that getting on the right path to a bright future may not be easy, but it can be done.”
Teen Mom Season 5 premieres later this year on MTV, and is expected to include Lowell and Baltierra’s new baby, Novalee Reign. Lowell and Baltierra’s co-stars, Amber Portwood and Maci Bookout, will also be seen on the show.
