After months of speculation, Catelynn Lowell has finally confirmed that she is pregnant for a second time. The expectant mom revealed her baby bump along with her confirmation. How exciting!
Catelynn Lowell, 22, is going to be a mommy. The former Teen Mom and her fiance, Tyler Baltierra, 22, are going to be first-time parents, as they are best known for giving their first child — a daughter, Carly, now 5 — up for adoption when their heartbreaking story premiered on 16 & Pregnant in 2009.
Catelynn Lowell Finally Confirms Pregnancy
Look at that huge baby bump!
On Wednesday, Aug. 6, Catelynn revealed the first look at her pregnant belly on Instagram.
“#it’sofficial #4months,” Catelynn captioned the photo, in which she is clutching her baby bump while standing on what appears to be a boat.
It was widely speculated that Catelynn and her fiance, Tyler, were expecting again after family members broke the news on their personal Facebook pages in May 2014. Catelynn would have been around one month at that time, which leads us to believe that that’s around the time Catelynn found out she was pregnant.
As you may remember, Catelynn and Tyler were the first 16 & Pregnant couple to give up their baby for adoption. When Carly was born, the young couple — then just juniors in high school — picked a wonderful couple, Brandon and Teresa Davis, to raise their little girl.
They have what is called an “open adoption” with the Davis’, which means they are allowed contact with Carly through email, phone calls, and occasional visits. Sadly, Carly’s adoptive parents do not like social media and have asked Catelynn and Tyler not to share any photos of her on any of their accounts.
Now, Catelynn and Tyler, who both graduated high school and attended Baker college, will be able to raise their second child as their own in the home that they share.
Congrats, Catelynn and Tyler! This is so exciting!
Catelynn & Tyler May Appear On ‘Teen Mom’ Reboot
Another rumor that has been swirling through the Teen Mom world is that a reboot of the original cast is in the works.
Of course there was some drama surrounding the show’s return, and in the end it was Catelynn’s nemesis, Farrah Abraham, who got the ax.
If the expecting couple are filming a new season of the show, it will be extremely different from their first appearance shortly after giving up their daughter for adoption. Now, Catelynn and Tyler are adults who own their own home and are also planning their wedding.
