Catelynn Lowell is fed up with the rumors regarding her daughter Carly and her adoptive parents. The 23-year-old took to Twitter to share the truth about their relationship, telling fans, “Don’t always believe what u read!” Lowell denied that there were any hard feelings between her, fiancé Tyler Baltierra and the child’s parents.
"All the c--p of ppl saying that Carlys parents are taking away communication from ty and I are all lies! Don't always believe what u read!" She tweeted.
Lowell and Baltierra documented their struggle to cope after putting Carly up for adoption for MTV’s cameras on “16 and Pregnant” in 2009. With the help of therapy, support groups and time the couple were able to move past it. Nowadays they’re the ones helping people through adoptions. They have had the privilege of watching Carly grow up through photos and somewhat regular visits, some of which were shown on “Teen Mom.” Although they’ve had a relatively good relationship with her adoptive parents, they frequently battle to accept rules put in place by the couple regarding posting photos of the child, among other things.
Fortunately it seems like they’ve reached an agreement. On March 19, Lowell shared a photo on Instagram showing her two children side-by-side. The photo reveals just how much the two sisters, who are six years apart in age, resemble one another.
“This is a crazy picture they look so much alike it’s nutts! Love my children soooo much you BOTH are my world!” she captioned the photo.
Lowell and Baltierra announced their second pregnancy in August 2014. While it should have been a happy occasion, the couple’s news was met with social media backlash. Some Twitter users suggested they were too young and inexperienced to have a child while others wondered how they could welcome another baby after giving up their firstborn. Lowell quickly shut down naysayers, writing “idc what ANYONE says I’m gonna do me! We ARE READY for a baby. #HatersGonnaHate.” Novalee Reign was born Jan. 1. The couple are said to be adjusting well to being first time parents.
“It hit me after a while of having her home because I’d seen the other girls being moms, but this is the first time I’m actually parenting a child,” Lowell revealed according to People. “It’s totally different from what you expect.” Their journey from pregnancy to parenthood will be documented on “Teen Mom OG,” which revisits the show’s original cast. The series airs tonight at 10 p.m. EDT on MTV.
