We first came to know Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra during their emotional episode of MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. The show documented Catelynn’s and Tyler’s journey through their unexpected pregnancy.
They were only 16-years-old when they found out that Catelynn was expecting a baby in 2009, and they instantly knew that they did not want to raise their child in the home they lived in; not only was Tyler’s father in and out of prison, Catelynn’s mother suffered from drug and alcohol abuse. As hard as it was, they knew that they wanted better for their daughter, and made the difficult decision to put baby Carly up for adoption.
Now, five years later, Catelynn and Tyler are expecting another baby! While neither Catelynn or Tyler have confirmed the news, over the weekend Catelynn’s mother April Stotts and her brother River Alexander Lowell spilled the beans. April took to her Facebook account and said “Gonna be a grandma again,” and then River followed by posting on his page, “Catelynn is pregnant.”
Catelynn and Tyler are one of the few teen couples to make their relationship last through the good, bad, and ugly. While they realized that they were not ready to raise a child at 16-years-old, they are now adults and plan on keeping their baby. They have both made it very clear that they wanted more children. In April, Catelynn tweeted, “I am an adult and I can tell when I’m ready and idc what ANYONE says I’m gonna do me! We ARE READY for a baby. #HatersGonnaHate.”

MTV is currently talking to the cast of the original Teen Mom, including Catelynn and Tyler, about possibly bringing them back for a fifth season. If they do, I guess we will get to see how Catelynn and Tyler handle this pregnancy.
