Congrats are in order for the happy couple! On Thursday, Sept. 13, Catelynn Lowell announced that she’s pregnant in an interview with Us Weekly. The Teen Mom OG star is expecting baby No. 3 with her husband, Tyler Baltierra, and now she’s giving fans the first glimpse at their third child with a sweet sonogram photo on Instagram.
“Already can’t wait to meet you little nugget,” Cate wrote in the caption of the pic. She added the red heart, heart eyes emoji, and the rainbow emoji — which is fitting because she refers to her unborn child as her “rainbow baby.”
“The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby. This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited,” Catelynn told Us Weekly. “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 continued, “We were going to wait a really long time. We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”
The 26-year-old reality star teased a big announcement on her Instagram a few weeks ago, which made many fans curious if she had a bun in the oven. “Can’t wait to share our big news with y’all!!” Catelynn wrote at the time.
“I hope it’s that you’re pregnant. Nova needs a little sister or omg a little Tyler! Lol so cute! ???” one fan commented, with a second adding, “I pray you guys are expecting a baby and you both are great and healthy!!!!! Love you guys. ?.” And it looks like the fans were right!
Catelynn and Tyler, who are both 26, are parents to their adorable 3-year-old daughter, Novalee. The couple placed their oldest daughter, Carly, for adoption back in 2009, but have incorporated her storyline into the MTV show as well.
At this point, Catelynn and Tyler have not released any details on the sex of the baby, or Catelynn’s due date, but we’re looking forward to following every step of her pregnancy journey. Welcome to the fam, baby Baltierra!
