Yesterday, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra of MTV's Teen Mom OG, both shared teasers on their Instagram profiles, altering to fans that a huge announcement was being made. And what a big announcement it was! Revealing on Us Weekly, the couple is expecting their third child together and Catelynn's pregnancy announcement photos are absolutely stunning!
Wearing a rainbow crown to shed light on the beautiful rainbow baby growing inside her, and a crimson red dress, Catelynn Lowel showed off her baby bump for the very first time. The couple is over the moon excited about their rainbow baby after the storm.
“It was a huge shock at first. We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness," Lowell shared, “we were going to wait a really long time. We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”
The couple have shared their open adoption story through MTV's Teen Mom and now Teen Mom OG about Carly, now 9, whose adoption was in 2009. The middle-school sweethearts, Lowell, 26, and Baltierra, also 26, who tied the knot in August 2015, are also parents of 3-year-old daughter, Novalee.
Up until now, 2018 had been a challenging year for the couple as they shared back in January on their tv show that they were expecting a baby, only to reveal on the February 26 episode that Lowell has had a miscarriage. Previously sharing her struggles with mental illness, battling postpartum depression back in 2015 after the birth of Novalee, her mental illness struggles got worse. Always shedding light on her ups and downs as a way to reach others who might be going through similar battles, Lowell revealed that she entered a treatment facility after the miscarriage due to suicidal thoughts.
Adding fuel to the fire, the couple also battled divorce rumors, which they quickly squashed and share that they are a stronger couple than ever who will always work through any problems.
Luckily, Teen Mom OG returns to MTV on Monday, October 1, so we will get to follow along as this sweet couple shares the pregnancy and birth of their newest family member. Congratulations to Catelynn and Tyler!
