She’s almost here! Catelynn Lowell took to Instagram on Wednesday, February 13, to reveal she’s having contractions. The Teen Mom OG star, 26, and her husband, Tyler Baltierra, could welcome little Tezlee any day now … er, any minute! Keep scrolling for more details.
“That baby may have not been fully grown in the womb … but it was fully grown in our hearts. For every parent out there who has lost a baby … it is not your fault and it is more than acceptable and understandable to mourn the loss of that baby and take your time to grieve,” he wrote at the time.
When one fan suggested he was brave for not crying until Catelynn was in treatment (after experiencing suicidal thoughts), he responded, “I was holding it together for Cate, because I knew what she was going through and the support she needed was priority #1! When I got some time I was able to release all the emotions I was feeling. That’s what us men need to do for our women … be strong for them when needed.”
“I didn’t cry … I was shocked!” Tyler told Kate Casey on her Reality Life podcast. “We were using protection. We were using all levels of protection … We were not ready for a baby, we were preventing it at all costs!”
The couple placed their firstborn daughter, Carly, for adoption nearly 10 years ago. The emotional process was featured on the first season of MTV’s 16 & Pregnant in 2009 and continues to be a storyline on the network’s hit spinoff.
