Teen Mom’s sweetheart Catelynn Lowell is getting a second chance at motherhood.
In Touch — on newsstands now — can exclusively reveal that Catelynn and fiancé Tyler Baltierra, who gave their baby girl up for adoption three years ago, are expecting again.
“She said, ‘You’re never going to believe it: I’m pregnant,’” Catelynn’s longtime friend, Jamie Pyrzewski, 26, confirms to In Touch. Jamie — one of the first people Catelynn, 20, called last month after sharing the news with Tyler and a small circle of family members — adds, “We were both quiet. I asked how she felt about it. She said she was nervous and scared.”
But a short period of panic and “total denial” quickly gave way to excitement. “She is now feeling complete joy,” a family insider tells In Touch about the mom-to-be, who is due this winter. Adds another source close to Catelynn, “This time, she knew immediately that she wanted to keep the baby. She’s just so happy.”
Catelynn first shot to fame on the MTV reality show 16 and Pregnant as a conflicted young mother who made the heartbreaking choice to put her daughter Carly up for adoption in 2009, and later became a fan favorite on the network’s Teen Mom for her steady pursuit of her dreams and rock-solid relationship with Tyler, now also 20.
