Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell and husband Tyler Baltierra pregnant with third child after miscarriage and divorce rumors
Catelynn first sparked the intrigue of her fans and followers about a possible pregnancy back in August with a cryptic Instagram message about their upcoming 'big news'
Finally, after what seemed like a really dark year for Teen Mom OG star Caelynn Lowell, bright sunshine appears in the form of another pregnancy. The 26-year-old mother of two is pregnant a third time, as confirmed by RadarOnline. And this comes after she and her husband, Tyler Baltierra battled some difficult years of miscarriages, mental health struggles, and rehab.
Catelynn herself shared the news with Us Weekly, speaking about how special this soon-to-be-arriving third child is going to be for the family. “The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby. This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited,” shared the mom of three-year-old Novalee and Carly, 9 — who was immediately placed for adoption after her birth. “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.”
A rainbow baby is a child that one has after a miscarriage. The star experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage last year and broke the news on a February episode of her show.
Catelynn and her husband, Tyler, were apparently “using protection", but guess this pregnancy was just on the cards. “We were going to wait a really long time. We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant,” she continued.
“This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.” The couple first hinted at the pregnancy just last month in a cryptic Instagram post: “Can’t wait to share our big news with y’all!”, she had posted back in August.
Fans and followers couldn't be happier for the couple as they have been through everything - from marital troubles involving divorce rumors to their personal stints at rehab for mental illness. While most of the tragic incidents - including the rehab visit - happened because of the dark times Catelynn and Tyler went through after the miscarriage, the two sure did tackle divorce rumors like pros. When they first sparked, Catelynn told Us Weekly: "Tyler and I are not getting a divorce. Couples go through ups and downs. That’s normal life. We are a solid couple that will work through anything life throws at us."
Catelynn has been married to Tyler for almost three years now, and the two have some heavy history together, having known each other since seventh grade.
They had started dating in the 2005 and after 10 long years, decided to finally tie the knot in August of 2015. Their wedding was a grand affair with around 154 guests which also included Teen Mom OG co-stars Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood, as well as Teen Mom 2 stars Kailyn Lowry and Jarvi Marroquin.
