It looks like Nova may be a big sister sometime soon!
It seems like everyday, we hear from Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra when it comes to having more kids (the two are not only parents to two-year-old Nova, but also gave up a daughter, Carly, for adoption eight years ago).
The basic gist is that he’s desperate for more kids — more specifically, a son — while she has her doubts, considering she fought quite a battle with postpartum depression after giving birth to Nova.
But now, she’s setting the record straight — and reassuring fans that there are most definitely more kids in their future!
“Believe me, I want another baby too,” she said on Kate Casey’s podcast, Reality Life With Kate Casey. “I think struggling with postpartum and it being so severe… It’s kind of scary for me, in a way. That definitely deters me a little bit from wanting another child.”
She continued, “I keep telling myself that whenever [I get pregnant], because it will [happen] eventually, you just have to have that support system. We definitely want more kids, it’s just when… I don’t know.”
On several occasions during the most recent season of Teen Mom OG, the two have discussed about whether or not it would be too risky given her struggles with mental health.
In the past, Cate tweeted, “It’s so stupid that postpartum can scare you away from one of the most beautiful things in life.”
During another interview, she explained, “I’ve definitely been thinking about it and [postpartum] is the one thing that’s holding me back, honestly. Especially because they say if you’re had postpartum once, you have a higher chance of getting it with your next. With Nova, I thought it was severe because I struggled with anxiety already and panic attacks and depression. So that is definitely the thing that scares me the most. I want to have a big family and have a lot of kids, but it’s scary. It’s definitely scary.”
Hopefully Cate can figure it out!
