Teen Mom OG stars Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra shared some exciting news on Instagram on February 22, 2021 – they have a baby on the way! The reality stars made the announcement by posting a photo of their daughters Novalee and Vaeda holding a sign that reads, “27 weeks until I become a big sister.” Their little girls can also be seen wearing matching “Big Sister 2021” t-shirts. Catelynn captioned her post, “This rainbow was worth the storm. Baby Baltierra on the way.” Tyler Baltierra posted the same photo with the caption, “Can’t wait for another beautiful blessing.”
Fans first met the high school sweethearts on the MTV show 16 and Pregnant, where they welcomed their oldest daughter Carly in 2009 before giving her up for adoption. The couple then joined Teen Mom, which chronicled that process, as well as their relationship over the years, including their marriage in 2015 and their brief separation in 2018.
Between a difficult childhood for both of them and Catelynn dealing with a mental illness, the young couple has been through a lot together. That includes miscarriages, making this new addition to the family a “rainbow baby,” which is a term coined for a child born after the loss of a child.
Teen Mom: Caitlynn And Tyler Suffered A Miscarriage Prior To This Pregnancy
MTV stars Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra have announced that they are expecting a baby after the two Teen Mom OGs previously suffered a miscarriage
Unfortunately, this was not the first time the young mother had experienced such a loss. The two opened up about a previous miscarriage in 2018 on Teen Mom OG, which led Catelynn to check into treatment for mental health issues. She acknowledged her recent miscarriage when she announced this latest pregnancy by captioning her post, “this rainbow was worth the storm,” with the rainbow emoji.
But don’t expect the Baltierras to celebrate their good news with the rest of the Teen Mom cast. Catelynn told Us Weekly that only one of them reached out to her after her loss. She said, “I feel like I reach out to them a lot when they’re going through things. I try to be there, but I also have to have that mindset that everyone is not going to do what I would do.” We know that fans, however, are more than happy to continue following Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra’s journey as parents.
