This is too sweet. Her fans may know that Catelynn Lowell, known for her role on the original Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant on MTV — and now for Teen Mom OG — is expecting another baby. And she’s been very open on social media about what it’s been like to expect a “rainbow baby” after going through a miscarriage.
But the latest Instagram post Catelynn made about her current pregnancy may be the loveliest update she’s shared with fans and followers so far.
The image Catelynn shared was simple: 11 words over a black background. But the short and sweet message conveyed so much. Catelynn wrote, in rainbow font to boot, “Feeling our little girl more and more what an amazing feeling,” along with a little pregnant mama emoji to really up the “aww” factor.
The caption was simple as well, and all Catelynn wrote was, “#blessed #momofgirls #rainbowbaby🌈”. And that last hashtag is what makes the post so special.
In the Feb. 26 episode, fans witnessed the heartbreaking moment on Teen Mom OG when Catelynn Lowell miscarried her baby, and what she and husband Tyler Baltierra went through together when they realized they were losing their second baby.
“It was very traumatic. [I saw] her shaking, and she’s got blood everywhere,” Tyler told a producer for the show. “She kinda, like, cleaned herself up and we figured what was going on. Spotting’s normal, but clotting … all the clots are not. We just sat on the bed and cried. We just held another. There’s nothing you can really do.”
Now, Catelynn and Tyler are expecting again, and it’s another little girl this time! They already share their daughter Novalee, who is three, in addition to the child they gave up for adoption years ago, Carly.
Generally, a baby born after a miscarriage, stillbirth, or neonatal death is referred to as a “rainbow baby.” It’s a term Catelynn has used before, including in a maternity photo shoot for this pregnancy that she posted some adorable shots from on her Instagram back in September.
Fans in the comments for the Oct. 27 Instagram post seemed to really be rooting for Catelynn and her rainbow baby. Comments there ranged from “I’m so happy for you and Tyler” to people expressing that they know exactly what Catelynn is going through. Because unfortunately, a lot of parents out there can probably relate.
Between her struggles with anxiety and depression and losing a previous pregnancy, Catelynn has clearly been through a lot lately. It’s great that she’s so positive and excited about this pregnancy, and that she seems more than ready to welcome another baby girl into her little family.
