Catelynn Lowell dropped a bombshell on Instagram. The Teen Mom OG star has been making headlines for possibly being pregnant, with the popular MTV series itself hinting that one of its cast members might be expecting. With regard to these hints, Catelynn updated her Instagram account on Saturday with a very simple photo, and there were no two ways around it: The image was an ultrasound.

Catelynn's snap was normal in many ways. The photo showed a fetus in the womb, with fans seeing the black-and-white image that is usually seen with an ultrasound. Catelynn's post seemed to be crafted so as to send a strong message, with the mother of three also appearing to confirm the gender of the baby.

Fans were encouraged to head over to Catelynn's bio to find out more and anyone who clicked the link found themselves redirected to a Us Magazine article. While the feature offered plenty of photos of celebrities and their babies, the article did not appear to confirm or deny that Catelynn is pregnant.

Whether or not Catelynn is really pregnant has suddenly become even more of a mystery. She could have posted the teaser to confuse fans or she could simply have been toying with her followers. For some reason, Catelynn disabled comments on her post but fans were still able to leave likes, with the post including the ultrasound image clocking more than 10,000 in just 45 minutes.

"I am not pregnant and we are using birth control. But when we do decide to have another child, we are hoping for a boy."

Catelynn shot to fame on MTV's 16 and Pregnant before becoming a core member of Teen Mom OG. While the star's marriage to husband Tyler is now steady, things haven't always been so easy. During Catelynn's pregnancy with Vaeda, the couple briefly separated, with the stress of it all led Catelynn to consider aborting her baby. Catelynn then felt immense guilt afterward, with the star airing her views on the show.
