Experts weighed in on rumors of ‘Teen Mom’ Catelynn Lowell being pregnant again and, based on their opinions, HollywoodLife.com is glad they’re not true!
Catelynn Lowell and her fiancé Tyler Baltierra put their daughter Carly up for adoption three years ago in order to focus on finishing their education and maintaining a stable relationship before raising children, so experts were stunned when rumors swirled of Catelynn being pregnant with her second child. Catelynn quickly denied the rumors and experts are happy to hear the teenage couple is waiting to have another child.
Catelynn and Tyler both seem committed to finishing their college degrees — something that experts say would be very difficult with a baby on board! Psychotherapist Gilda Carle says, “I have a lot of students in my college classes who had to leave school because of the demands of parenthood — and the innocent child must be the priority.”
Rumors of a second pregnancy came on the heels of the couple visiting the child they gave up for adoption, causing worry that their emotions are making the couple lose sight of how impractical having another baby might be. Psychiatrist Dr. Carole Lieberman explains, “A baby isn’t a little puppy that you replace when it is lost.”
Though the couple may not be ready to have another baby just yet, it seems they’re on the right path to eventually providing a comfortable and stable household. “They’ve done a lot of things right — going to couples counseling, being graduated from high school, planning to finish college, and even buying a new house with a big yard for a child to play in,” says Lieberman.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Are YOU glad that Catelynn’s pregnancy rumor has proven false?
