The “Teen Mom” family is growing! Catelynn Lowell of MTV’s hit series is reportedly pregnant with her second child.
Lowell and her longtime boyfriend, Tyler Baltierra, were featured on “16 and Pregnant” when Lowell became pregnant in 2009. The pair shared their struggle on-screen, ultimately deciding that the best thing for their child, Carly, would be to put her up for adoption.
The couple, now 22, announced in late April that they were trying to conceive their second child.
“I would’ve felt guilty if I got pregnant again when Carly was 1 or 2,” Lowell revealed to In Touch Weekly. “But we’ve both been yearning for this.”
And it appears that their wish for a second child came true! April Stotts, Catelynn Lowell’s mother, confirmed to Us Weekly that her daughter and Baltierra are expecting.
“She called to ask me about a pregnancy test and if I thought she was pregnant,” Stotts dished to the magazine. “So I made her send me a picture and I told her, ‘I believe you are, you should go get a couple more and take a couple more.'”
According to Stotts, Lowell was crying when she was able to confirm her pregnancy.
“So I was like, ‘Are you happy? Are you upset?’” the proud grandma explained. “And she was like I’m happy!”
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have yet to confirm the pregnancy news themselves, but according to the Hollywood Gossip, an announcement is in “the near future.” If April Stotts is correct, the timing of Lowell and Baltierra’s big news would coincide with the reported return of “Teen Mom.” Although the show has been off the air for two years, MTV is in talks to reunite the cast for a fifth season after the success of their catch-up episodes.
