Catelynn Lowell: My Kid Needs Me Too Much!

OK, so Catelynn Lowell spent a good long while in rehab a while back.

We all remember how this went down, but just in case your memory is a little fuzzy, let’s do a quick little recap.

Last fall, she and Tyler Baltierra decided it was time to have another child, and she got pregnant pretty fast after they made that decision.

Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage.

And it was very, very hard on her.

She began contemplating suicide, but before acting on anything, she told her family, and they helped her check into a treatment center in Arizona.

She spent about six weeks there, missing Thanksgiving and Christmas, then came home.

But as we saw last season on Teen Mom OG, she really wasn’t feeling much better.

In one scene, Catelynn explained to Tyler that she was still very depressed and anxious, and that she felt like she needed to go back to Arizona.

The choice caused a bit of strain on their marriage, from what was shown on Teen Mom.

He tried to convince her to do some therapy and stay at home instead, but she refused to do that.

Instead, she dropped their daughter, Nova, off at daycare without telling her that she’d be gone again, then left.

After six more weeks, she came home, and that’s a bit of what we’ll see in the next episode.

In the beginning of this new sneak peek, Catelynn explains in a voiceover that she’s only been home for a few days at this point.

“It’s been an adjustment,” she admits, “but I really appreciate Tyler taking care of everything while I was gone.”

Then we see Catelynn and Tyler playing with Nova, and he asks Cate if anything’s different now that she’s home.

“She won’t leave me alone,” Catelynn says, referring to Nova.

It’s not the greatest thing to say, especially considering that so many fans thought she seemed too detached with her kid in earlier episodes.

Tyler doesn’t seem to love the comment either.

“Mom comes back and it’s like ‘Dad who? That guy who has all the stupid rules?'” he says.

“‘Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom,” Catelynn mocks.

Yeah, it’s really not sounding so good.

Later, Catelynn visits with a friend named Hayley who kicks off their chat by asking her how she’s been. 

She reveals that she has been a bit anxious, but that she feels it’s normal in life to feel a little anxiety from time to time.

Hayley tells her that she seems happier than ever, and she agrees, which is nice.

She also tells Catelynn that she’s probably more in love with Tyler than ever, after how much he’s supported her.

“Oh my god, yeah,” she agrees. “As a husband and wife, man, you say it in your vows, through sickness and in health, for richer or poorer.”

“It’s like, you gotta stand by each other, and he totally did.”

Hayley pumps Tyler up even more — he’s not even there, by the way.

“Yeah, he’s awesome,” Cate replies.

Except she doesn’t sound super convinced.

We know that Catelynn and Tyler went through some things after she came back from rehab.

He’s said that he was “repulsed” by her behavior while she was in treatment, and that couldn’t have been easy for her to hear.

We imagine that as the season goes on, we’ll see more of their issues, but so far …

It’s honestly looking kind of bad.

And, judging by the comments left when MTV shared this sneak peek on Facebook, most Teen Mom fans are just completely over Catelynn in general.

“She is a horrible human,” one person wrote. “To complain how your daughter is showering you with attention because you left her for months on end, how pathetic.”

And that was the top comment, so …

Another commenter asked “How many times does Tyler have to stand by you before you act on his feelings instead of it being all about you?”

One person said that they were “glaring at how Nova noticed her mom mocking her desperate need for attention and validation.”

Things got especially savage when someone else said that “I think she’s just a failure of a mother and uses her illnesses as a way to escape to rehab.”

The comments go on and on and on like that, about what an awful mother she is and how Tyler needs to leave her.

Lots of people also seem concerned that she’s expecting another child now, since they think she’s so cold with Nova already.

Honestly, it’s a real bad time to be Catelynn Lowell right now.


Catelynn Lowell: SLAMMED By Fans For “Selfish” and “Unsafe” Behavior

Catelynn Lowell has endured a number of hardships and setbacks in recent years, and the honesty with which she's addressed these struggles has made her a favorite amongst Teen Mom OG viewers.

But the show documents every part of its stars' lives, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before fans began to see aspects of Catelynn's character that they didn't find quite so endearing.

Many feel that the current season of Teen Mom OG has portrayed Catelynn in an unflattering light.

Some have even accused of her endangering her unborn baby.

Here's what viewers have to say about the new and not-so-improved Catelynn Lowell:


1. Better Days

For years, Lowell was regarded as one of the most down-to-earth and relatable stars of the Teen Mom franchise.

2. Hard Times

Fans rooted for her as she endured mental health issues, a tragic miscarriage, and other issues that put her marriage and her psyche to the test.

3. The Baltierra Bond

Catelynn and Tyler have endured difficulties that would have driven any young couple to the brink of divorce, but they’ve stuck by one another throughout. Or have they?

4. An Uneven Partnership

Tyler baltierra and catelynn
Part of the reason Catelynn is receiving so much blowback this season is that viewers believe she’s failing to properly support Tyler the way he’s supported her in the past.

5. The Low Point

In the past, Tyler happily assumed the majority of the parental responsibilities while Catelynn checked in for extended stays at in-patient treatment facilities on two separate occasions.

6. Failing Her Family?

Now, some fans feel that Catelynn is not only neglecting her husband’s needs as he attends to his own mental health issues, she’s also failing to keep up with her own treatment.

Catelynn Lowell: See the Adorable Moment She Tells Her Daughter She’s Pregnant!

By now, you've surely heard the big Teen Mom OG news, right?

And no, we're not talking about the additions of Cheyenne Floyd and Bristol Palin to the cast.

We're talking, of course, about Catelynn Lowell's pregnancy!

Yep, after having a miscarriage last year that was so traumatizing it caused her to contemplate suicide, Catelynn is pregnant with what she's been calling her "rainbow baby."

She and husband Tyler Baltierra seem very, very excited about adding another member to their family, and it's been pretty cute to see.

So far, we know that the baby is due on March 6th, and although there's been no official gender reveals, reports claim that they're having another girl.

And thanks to this adorable new Teen Mom OG sneak peek, we know that their daughter Nova is pumped about being a big sister!

The clip starts off with Catelynn and Nova making cupcakes while Tyler sits at the table nearby.

Cate tells Nova that some of their cupcakes are going to be pink and others are going to be blue, then asks her if she knows why they're making them that way.

Nova honestly just seems psyched about cupcakes in general, so Catelynn asks her if she knows why they're having a party the next day.

"Mommy has a baby in her belly," she explains to her, "and tomorrow the party is because we're going to find out if it's a little girl or a little boy."

"Yeah!" Nova responds, soaking up the news.

Cate asks her if she'd rather have a little brother or sister, and Nova doesn't hesitate to say she'd prefer a sister.

Tyler, who's always been open about how much he wants a son, makes a face, then asks her "What if it's a boy?"

Catelynn asks her if she'd be happy with a little brother too, and she says she would, because she's precious and perfect.

They start talking to Nova about babies, and they tell her babies cry a lot.

"Yeah, then you just say 'shh,'" Nova says, again, because she is too cute for this world.

She then says that she's going to rock the baby and feed it bottles and be a big sister.

"He's so cute!" she exclaims. "I love him!"

The whole thing is really just painfully adorable, it really is.

It's also nice to see a lighthearted moment with the family, after how heavy things got for them last season.

Some people think that Catelynn and Tyler rushed into having another baby, that they should have waited longer after her trips to rehab.

But one thing is for sure, and that is that Nova is going to be the best big sister.

Check out the sweet moment in the video below:

Catelynn Lowell Shares Ultrasound Photo With Fans: I Can’t Wait to Meet My Baby!

Last week, the Teen Mom community received some joyous news.

After a rocky year filled with just about every kind of emotional hardship, Catelynn Lowell is pregnant with her third child.

And it’s clear that Lowell simply can’t contain her excitement.

Over the weekend, Catelynn posted the above ultrasound image on her Instagram page.

“Already can’t wait to meet you little nugget,” lowell captioned the pic.

Naturally, fans were quick to echo the reality star’s excitement, with many offering words of congratulations.

The news of Lowell’s pregnancy is especially sweet coming as it does on the heels of a tremendously difficult year for Catelynn and her husband, Tyler Baltierra.

The downward spiral when Lowell suffered a miscarriage.

The tragedy triggered a sharp decline in her mental state that eventually led Catelynn to check into rehab.

Catelynn was diagnosed with PTSD, and with the help of her team of doctors, she began to work toward a healthier future.

The timing has led Lowell and Baltierra to liken their forthcoming new addition to a rainbow — the beautiful phenomenon that follows even the darkest of storms.

“The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby,” Lowell told Us Weekly in a recent interview.

“This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited.”

Lowell said she and Tyler were not expecting to get pregnant but were overjoyed when they learned she’s expecting:

“It was a huge shock at first. We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness,” said Lowell.

“We were going to wait a really long time.

“We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”

The baby’s gender, however, was anticipated by Catelynn who once remarked of her husband, “It’s like Tyler just makes girls. The guys make the gender.”

We’re not sure if Catelynn’s theories of reproductive science hold water, but far be it for us to rain on her parade.

The progress she and Tyler have made with their respective ailments is truly remarkable, and it’s no wonder that they’ve quickly become the Teen Mom world’s most beloved couple.

We wish these two and their growing family all the best in the years to come.


Catelynn Lowell Reveals Due Date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catelynn Lowell has another bombshell to drop.

It can't match the announcement made by this Teen Mom just a few days ago (SHE'S PREGNANT!), but it's a pretty important tidbit to share nonetheless.

In an interview with Radar Online, Catelynn shared the exact date on which her third child is due, while also getting candid about the reaction of her family to this enormous piece of news.

What did they say? And what is her due date?

Scroll down to find out!

1. How Did She React to the Pregnancy?

Cradling that bump
Lowell has already admitted it wasn’t planned, and she expounded on that in this interview, telling Radar: “Whenever you find out you’re pregnant, at first t’e like an initial shock and anxiety. It’s like oh my gosh, you just get a little anxious.”

2. Fair Enough. How Far Along is She?

14 weeks, Catelynn says, which doesn’t mean she is totally out of the miscarriage woods. But once a woman is past 12 weeks, the odds of a miscarriage grow considerably lower.

3. Thank Goodness, Right?

Catelynn and husband Tyler already went through a miscarriage a few months ago; the former was so traumatized that she entered rehab for a few mental health problems.

4. So… When is She Due?!?

Mark it down, folks: March 6, 2019. This means she’s a Pisces, for those wondering.

5. When Did Catelynn and Tyler Learn the News?

“At first, it was scary and emotional and it just takes you by surprise. I found out at five weeks… once it sunk in, we started getting more and more excited.”

6. Which Teen Moms Knew Before the Public Announcement?

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra: Irresponsible for Having Another Baby??

If you keep up with all the latest Teen Mom news and gossip, then there’s absolutely no chance that you haven’t heard the big news by now:

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are expecting another baby!

This will be their third child — their first, Carly, was born when the two were only 16 and they placed her for adoption, and their second, Nova, was born in January of 2015.

Catelynn was actually pregnant last year, but unfortunately she suffered a miscarriage, one that was extremely difficult for her to handle.

After it happened, she began to contemplate suicide, but she was able to reach out to her family before she acted on those thoughts.

She decided to check into a treatment center in Arizona, the same one she visited in 2016 for her severe postpartum depression.

This all happened in November, so in December, Cate decided to check out before completing her planned six weeks of treatment so she could spend Christmas with her daughter.

But after coming home, she realized she wasn’t ready, so she went back to Arizona, then came home for real when she finished her treatment at the end of the month.

As we saw on the last season of Teen Mom OG, she was still pretty down, and in a discussion she had with Tyler, she said that she was struggling with simple tasks like getting out of bed and bathing.

At that point, she’d already made the decision to go back for another six weeks at her rehab center, and even though Tyler had some reservations about it, off she went.

She stayed there until March, when she came home for good.

Why are we going over all of that again?

Because what with her relatively recent rehab stays, there are a lot of fans who believe that perhaps it wasn’t the best idea for her to get pregnant again so soon.

And, as always, those fans were super vocal with their opinions when Tyler shared the big news on Instagram.

“I think Catelynn should worry about her mental health issues before having any kids,” one person wrote.

Another commented that “having a baby will most likely put her into depression after giving birth, it’s not healthy at all.”

“Y’all two are so unstable,” someone told them. “Not to mention suicidal. This is NOT good news. Poor kids is all I gotta say.”

Yet another hater said that hopefully Tyler is “prepared” to take care of Nova and the new baby “once she has the baby and decides she needs to jet off to rehab to ride horses & have spa days again.”

There were lots and lots of comments like that, and although Catelynn hasn’t commented on them (she’s even turned the comments off on her own posts about the pregnancy), Tyler did.

Over on Twitter, he retweeted the following:

“If no one with depression had kids the world would start shrinking at an alarming rate. If you are one of the lucky few never to experience it. Give a prayer of thanks and don’t talk about what you do not understand.”

“THIS. RIGHT HERE,” Tyler added. “NAILED IT!!!

It’s clear that Tyler is excited about Catelynn’s pregnancy, and it seems like she really is, too.

But what all those commenters on Instagram were trying to point out with varying levels of hatefulness was that perhaps it would have been best if they’d been able to wait a little longer to have another baby.

Cate was in inpatient treatment for her depression for three months less than a year ago, and that’s a little more intense than many people with depression deal with.

On top of that, she did seem a bit cold with Nova the last time she went to rehab.

On Teen Mom OG, we saw her be very impatient with her, and she left for treatment without even telling her she’d be gone again.

Then, when Tyler told her that her being gone for so long had been hard on Nova, she simply said “she’ll manage,” and a lot of viewers took that to mean that she didn’t really care how her daughter handled her absence.

But still, no matter what your thoughts are on Catelynn and Tyler and their parenting skills, the fact is that another baby is coming into the family, and despite anything that’s happened, it clear that they both love little Nova very, very much.

So really, our only choice right now is to be excited for them and to offer them the best wishes with their upcoming addition.

Congrats again, Baltierras!


Catelynn Lowell Confesses: I Hope My Baby Is A…

Let’s get one thing straight, right up front:

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra just want a happy and healthy baby.

The veteran Teen Mom stars, who announced they were expecting a child yesterday, will be content with a newborn of any type.

But Catelynn opened up to Us Weekly in the wake of her pregnancy announcement and admitted that she does have a gender preference.

So does her husband.

There’s no reason to pretend otherwise.

“I think we both want a boy for sure, but also we have Nova,” Lowell explained, referring to the tandem’s three-year-old daughter and adding;

“So it’s, like, if we’re just meant to have girls, we’re meant to have girls.”

The couple also had a girl about nine years ago.

She was named Carly and she was given up for adoption because Catelynn and Tyler didn’t feel ready to be parents.

“It’s like Tyler just makes girls. The guys make the gender,” Catelynn adding, making an accurate reference to science.

Lowell actually shared a photo of her sonogram with the aforementioned tabloid.

She said she got “an early blood test called Sneak Peek,” but “I did it too early… at 10 weeks … and I guess you’re supposed to wait a little longer than 10 weeks.”

A little while from now, at her upcoming upcoming 4-D ultrasound appointment, Catelynn hopes to find out the sex of her child.

How exciting!

The impending little human will be what is known as a “rainbow” baby because it follows a miscarriage.

Both Catelynn and Tyler opened up this past February about suffering such a giant loss just a few weeks earlier, with Catelynn even entering rehab as a result to deal with bouts of depression.

The couple likely would have tried for another baby at some point, but Catelynn admits that wasn’t the plan when she found out she was expecting a few weeks ago.

“It was a huge shock at first,” she says. “We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness.”

We’ve admired for a long time how candid Catelynn has been with this struggle.

Tyler was taken aback by the pregnancy at first, but he’s now fully embraced the situation.

“He’s obviously just as happy as I am,” Lowell told Us Weekly. “We love being parents and can’t wait for our newest addition.”

Lowell’s fellow Teen Moms have not yet commented on the pregnancy or sent notes of congratulations.

But we’re here to say that we’re so very happy for Catelynn and Tyler.

They’ve been through more than most famous twosomes, yet they’ve never lost sight of their love for each other and have vowed throughout even the lowest of times to stick by each other’s side.

Good for them.

We wish Catelynn the best in her pregnancy.


Tyler Baltierra to Catelynn Lowell: I’m NOT Happy in Our Marriage

On the new trailer for Teen Mom OG, we were so preoccupied with the faces of the new castmembers and one disgraced ex-governor that we almost overlooked a source of conflict.

It looks like Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell have hit a major rough patch.

Let’s take a look at exactly what they said, and whether this means that they’re finally headed for divorce.

There was much more in the Teen Mom OG trailer than Bristol Palin filling our hearts with dread.

It looks like there is serious trouble in … we won’t call it paradise … for Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell.

“If someone asked me, ‘Are you happy in your marriage?’” Tyler’s emotional confession begins.

He provides an answer: “I would say, ‘Absolutely not.’”

Those are some crushing, but honest, words for him to utter.

Tyler Baltierra 01 in the Teen Mom OG 2018 trailer

As powerful as Tyler’s upsetting admission was, Catelynn had a very important question for him.

Catelynn asks Tyler: “Do you think I’m lying to you at all?”

We don’t know what this is about, exactly.

Obviously, both Tyler and Catelynn have really worked on both their mental and physical health over the past year.

But it sounds an awful lot like Catelynn worries that Tyler thinks that she’s lying. Is there suspicion that someone is cheating?

Catelynn Lowell in the Teen Mom OG 2018 trailer

There is so much about the context that we won’t know — can’t know — until we see the episode.

We know that Catelynn received treatment in rehab late last year to deal with suicidal ideation, and then early this year to address childhood trauma.

PTSD can derail your entire life. It’s good that she took action when she did.

Tyler has also been forthright about his struggles with depression, which began when he was only a child.

We’ve also heard about Tyler’s bipolar disorder, which he discusses through poetry.

Many fans had hoped that tackling these issues head-on would help the two of them to beat the odds and stay together.

Tyler Baltierra 02 in the Teen Mom OG 2018 trailer

Of course, some so-called “fans” have been joking that Tyler and Catelynn are going to break up precisely because they’ve been making strides in their health.

Remember when Tyler Baltierra flaunted his weight loss with a new thirst trap? The guy has some serious abs now. He’s turned his torso into a work of art.

But some folks just had to pipe up with their theory that, once he got hot, he was going to cheat on Catelynn or just leave her.

Some even questioned why he would care about having a hot body unless he plans on getting a divorce — as if he and Catelynn can’t both enjoy it.

People made the same kind of joke after Anna Faris and Chris Pratt separated. People can be cruel.

Tyler Baltierra 03 in the Teen Mom OG 2018 trailer

In real life, we know that Tyler and Catelynn celebrated their anniversary just last month.

The couple has only been married for a few years, but they’ve been together since they were kids.

We don’t think that the two of them gushing over each other on social media just weeks ago was an elaborate cover for a secret separation or divorce.

So no, we don’t think that their turmoil in the trailer spells doom for their relationship.

Sometimes, some painful honesty is exactly what people need to express in order to grow and heal as a couple.


Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra: Here’s Why We Hate Bristol Palin!

Lots of people aren’t too happy with the idea of Bristol Palin joining the cast of Teen Mom OG.

Lots and lots (and lots and lots and …) of people.

This is for many reasons.

One of them is that nobody likes the Palins.

Nobody has been thinking “Gee, I wonder what Bristol Palin has been up to lately,” and if anyone has been thinking that, it’s because they hate her but they love gossip and they simply can’t help themselves.

And sure, some people will hate-watch Bristol’s segments on the show, but hate-watching something like that is only fun for a little while, maybe one or two episodes at most, certainly not a whole season.

The only way you can hate-watch someone for any solid amount of time is if they’re as crazy as, say, Farrah Abraham, and sorry, but Bristol just doesn’t have that kind of magic.

Another reason that people aren’t excited about the addition of Bristol is that people hate change, almost as much as they hate the Palins.

For nearly a decade now, Teen Mom has starred Maci, Catelynn, Amber, and Farrah.

Losing Farrah was tough, as awful as she was on the show, but it still worked with the three other moms.

After all this time, how weird is it going to be to have a new girl, especially a new girl like Bristol?

And then, for the cast members themselves, there’s an extra reason to be less than thrilled by all of this.

Catelynn and Tyler explained that during their appearance on this week’s episode of Kailyn Lowry’s podcast.

“Do I have anything against her as a person? No,” Catelynn began. “Do I dislike her? No, ‘cause I don’t know her.”

“Do I think it’s weird that you’re throwing somebody into the original girls’ story? Yes.”

Kailyn agreed with her about how weird Bristol’s addition is, because she and the Teen Mom 2 crew went through the same thing when Briana DeJesus joined the show last year.

“It’s like nobody gets a call,” she said. “Like, we’re making a huge change to the show. This is what’s happening. It hits the media before we found out.”

“It’s the only problem I have with it,” Tyler interjected, “is the way that it came out in the media and stuff.”

“It’s like, we start the franchise, built it, sustained it for 10 years, I think we deserve the respect to let me know what’s going on when you’re doing a major franchise shift that we helped build, create, sustain.”

“So I feel like it’s more of a respect thing,” he added.’

He does have a point — it’s pretty strange that MTV wouldn’t fill the cast members in on such a huge change in the show, even if it was just before they made the official announcement.

Catelynn agreed with her husband, complaining that the network “should have had the decency to call us.”

“Hey network, you like your money? You’re welcome,” Tyler said.

“Give me the respect and let me know when you’re doing a major franchise shift.”

Kailyn’s co-host, Lindsie, pointed out that perhaps MTV was just trying to keep the big news from leaking before they were ready to make the announcement, but that Catelynn didn’t care for that comment.

“We worked with them for 10 years and nothing’s ever leaked out,” she insisted. “You should be able to trust us.”

We’ve heard similar complaints from Maci Bookout — during her own episode of Kailyn’s podcast, she also said that she heard the news about Bristol the same time the rest of us did.

Amber hasn’t made any public statements on the subject, but Maci said that she was on the same page, so it sounds like she’s not too pleased, either.

The season premiere (and Bristol’s big debut!) doesn’t air until October 1st, but we can already tell the reunion is going to be a good one!
