For a “OG” couple from the “Teen Mom” franchise, another baby is on the way. On Monday, both Catelynn Lowell and her partner, Tyler Baltierra, shared the exciting news through their Instagram accounts.
Both their posts consisted of three pictures and a few heartwarming captions. It didn’t take long for her 3.7 million followers to go crazy about the exciting news and his 2.9 million followers.
“This rainbow was worth the storm. Baby Baltierra coming soon,” the note read on Catelynn’s page.
For the “Teen Mom OG” couple, this pregnancy comes after plenty of previous struggles. As Us Weekly observed, when they put their first daughter for adoption, fans first met the couple.
For Catelynn and Tyler, the early days of reality television revolved around their friendship as well as their attempts to maintain ties with Carly, who is now 11.
Tyler and Catelynn have navigated marital problems, mental health problems, and a miscarriage has recently been announced. The pair is in a safe position now, though.
The first image revealed their daughters Novalee and Vaeda in both Catelynn and Tyler’s respective Instagram posts. Novalee, 6, was keeping a small sign noting that in 27 weeks she would become a big sister. As she stood next to her, Vaeda, 2, giggled. Both girls were also wearing T-shirts commemorating the exciting development.
“Can’t wait for another beautiful blessing,” Tyler’s caption read.
They are pretty excited about growing their family later this year from the looks of the smiles on Novalee and Vaeda’s faces.
A latest ultrasound was the second snapshot. This appears to have been taken about two weeks ago and the “Teen Mom OG” star is about 12 weeks pregnant now. The new Baltierra baby is due to arrive at the beginning of September.
The final photo was of the positive test for pregnancy.
By referring to this being a “rainbow” girl, Catelynn’s caption made reference to her recent miscarriage. The term is widely used to remember a child lost to miscarriage or stillbirth.
Nearly 300,000 fans in just a few hours liked Catelynn’s announcement message. It seemed that she had decided to close the section of comments though.
The announcement by Tyler received almost 130,000 likes and 3,000 comments from supporters of the pair. It was instantly clear that a lot of people were hoping that this time the family would grow with a child.
“Blessings either way but I want a boy lol CONGRATS,” one fan wrote.
“Congratulations!! You two make such beautiful babies,” someone else noted.
