Baby on board? Catelynn Lowell threw fans for a loop in the latest teaser for Teen Mom OG when she surprised hubby Tyler Baltierra with pregnancy news. Rumors had been swirling about another baby, and this scene appears to confirm that the couple was expecting.
In the promo, Cate dresses daughter Nova in a shirt that reads “I’m going to be a big sister,” before giving her husband a pregnancy test. This, of course, has viewers confused since there’s been no public announcement, and Catelynn was recently readmitted to rehab. In a sad turn of events, it’s been reported that Cate suffered a miscarriage.
“It is actually really sad,” a source told The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. “Catelynn got pregnant and surprised Tyler and Nova and then had a miscarriage not long after. That happened right before she went to treatment [in November] when she tweeted about thinking about killing herself. The crew and production staff heard she was about six weeks pregnant when it happened but no one is 100 percent sure.”
Catelynn allegedly had to record voiceovers for the episode after suffering the miscarriage. “They don’t do voiceovers until the episode is all done and being edited usually, so Catelynn had to talk about trying to get pregnant and then getting pregnant even after she had the miscarriage. We felt badly for her,” the source continued. “[The miscarriage] is definitely going to be a big topic on the show. That’s why last week they made sure her voiceover was something like, ‘I’m not telling Tyler I took my birth control out.’”
Catelynn isn’t alone in her struggle. Co-star Maci Bookout recently revealed she had a miscarriage as well. The 26-year-old and husband Taylor McKinney opened up about their loss on the show. “Her name is Dande. Dandelion,” she said, as Taylor admitted, “I don’t want to talk about it.” We hope Maci and Catelynn can find comfort in each other during this difficult time.
