So sweet! Tyler Baltierra of Teen Mom OG fame posted another photo of his newborn daughter, Vaeda, and we can’t believe the little one is already one month old! It’s just the latest in a line of short updates he and his wife, Catelynn Lowell, have offered fans when it comes to the newest member of their family. See the cute new photo for yourself in our gallery below!
The couple announced that their new baby girl had arrived via Us Weekly. Her full name is actually Vaeda Luma, although they were originally going to name her Tezlee. Catelynn explained why they changed their minds on her moniker in another article for Us Weekly, “Every time someone would say Tezlee, we would cringe! It just wasn’t sitting with us like it did at first.”
Cate told Us that when it comes to the name the parents did settle on, “Tyler told me about the name Vaeda and I fell in love with it! It’s from the movie My Girl, which is a movie that Tyler showed me years ago.” Tyler later explained in an Instagram comment that the little girl’s middle name means “sunset.”
Since Vaeda was born, Tyler and Catelynn have both shared photos and other updates about their daughter with the fans and social media followers. For instance, on February 23, Tyler shared the first picture of Vaeda after they were able to bring her home from the hospital.
The Teen Mom star also shared the sweetest video of his older daughter, Nova, singing to her baby sister and it’s sure to make your heart melt. “Nova is trying to sing ‘London Bells Are Ringing’ to Vaeda & my heart legit just exploded & melted into a doting father puddle! 😫😭😍 #DaddysGirls,” he wrote on February 27.
On March 6, Tyler shared the loveliest photo of their whole little family all together, and it was clear that he was feeling all the feels. “This is my inspiration for everything! I love my family so much & there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for all of my girls!” he wrote.
The 16 and Pregnant alum then added, “After this past year with our miscarriage, Cate’s mental health struggle, my dad & sister’s recovery, & my own mental health journey … I thought this pregnancy couldn’t have [come] at a more emotionally sensitive time for us. But life isn’t about convenient timing & destiny works in mysterious ways.”
Tyler then concluded that particular update, “I’m just so blessed that Vaeda’s destiny was to be right here in her mother’s arms, next to her big sister, who’s wrapped in her daddy’s arms … it’s a feeling that’s unexplainable! 😭 #DaddysGirls.” Too cute!
On March 19, he shared a wonderful new update on Vaeda with his followers on Instagram. He shared a photo of his baby girl and wrote in the caption, “Vaeda is a month old this week & IDK how it’s possible, but she keeps getting cuter! 😍❤️.” We agree, Tyler!
Most fans in the comments agreed, too. “She’s beautiful and very lucky to have you both as her parents,” one fan wrote. Another told Tyler, “Your baby is BEAUTIFUL and she looks just like her big sister!!”
But apparently, Tyler was not pleased by many of the replies he got on the new photo of Vaeda. He later posted a reply on the post that read in part, “I’m actually just appalled at the ridiculously asinine comments about my newborn. We live in a world that is so divided, judgmental, self-righteous and opinionated … and unfortunately, it’s very evident with these comments.” Yikes!
Honestly, it doesn’t seem like Catelyn and Tyler are too bothered by what other people might think of their new baby. On March 20, Catelynn shared a series of photos of Vaeda on Instagram (and a couple featuring Nova, too!) with the caption, “I’m obsessed and so is Novalee! #loveher #mygirls #vaeda #novalee #momofgirls.” Just stay in that happy little bubble, Cate.
The Teen Mom mama also posted a photo of Vaeda in a little multicolored outfit and wrote, “Our rainbow 🌈 after the storm ⛈ #blessed #vaedaluma #rainbowbaby.” She’s likely referring to the baby’s status as a rainbow baby — a child born after a miscarriage, which Tyler and Cate previously experienced.
We’re legit thrilled that Catelynn and Tyler want to share so much of the beginning of Vaeda’s life with us. We say: the more they want to update their fans on their baby girl’s life, the better! Keep the adorable photos coming, please.
