'Teen Mom' couple Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra's daughter Nova is thrilled she's going to be a big sister
Seeing each other through every hardship and going through a miscarriage, Lowell and Baltierra finally have some good news for their daughter.
After announcing to the world that they are pregnant, Teen Mom's most enduring couple Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are now breaking the big news to their three-year-old daughter, NovaLee Reign. As parents to two daughters -- Nova and 9-year-old Carolyn Elizabeth -- they earlier shared the news of Catelynn's pregnancy on Instagram.
Teasing the big news on an Instagram post, Lowell had earlier told US Weekly, "The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby. This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited. 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." She also mentioned that the couple had initially decided to wait for longer but that didn't happen. "We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”
Now that the inevitable has happened, Lowell is preparing her daughter to welcome her sibling. While baking for a party the next day, where the couple will apparently reveal the gender of their child, Lowell asked her daughter is she wanted a little brother or a sister. Nova immediately replied that she wanted a little sister. However, when her parents suggested that she might have a brother, Nova agreed that she would love to have a little brother too. Although initially distracted by the baking and cracking an egg, she, however, suggested that they hush the baby if it cries a lot.
Nova eventually seemed to get pretty excited about having a baby brother whom she could rock and help feed. She also said, "I can be the big sister." When Lowell exclaimed "Yeah!", Nova referred to her unborn sibling and exclaimed, "He's so cute... I love him!" The couple was expecting a baby back in January. However, due to an unfortunate miscarriage Lowell went through a painful phase of depression. Explaining her decision to go for treatment Lowell told her mother-in-law, Kim that she contemplated killing herself every single day.

Kim had shown her support at the time suggesting she stay with her through her treatment. "You’re a great mother. You’re a great wife. We’re gonna be praying for you every day,” I’m really, really happy that you’re going get help, seriously. You got this.” While both were saddened by the loss of their unborn child, it seems like the third time will be lucky for the couple who have survived the aftermath of a reality show.
