‘Teen Mom OG’ Stars Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra Are Expecting Their Third Child

“If it’s a boy, we’ll name him Butch. If it’s a girl, we’ll call her Butchette!”

There’s another baby on the way for Teen Mom OG stars Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell!

The couple, who has been married since August 2015, announced on Thursday that they are expecting their third child.

“The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby,” Catelynn told Us Weekly. “This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited.”

According to Catelynn, the pregnancy was unexpected.

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

Catelynn and Tyler are already parents to three-year-old daughter Nova. They also have a nine-year-old daughter, Carly, whom they placed for adoption shortly after her birth in 2009.

The Ashley hears that ‘Teen Mom OG’ stars will be welcoming yet another girl. Tyler has made it no secret that he hopes to someday have a son. In fact, he admitted to being “pissed” at the gender reveal party held when Catelynn was pregnant was Nova, after finding out the baby was a girl.

“When I found out I was having a girl, and not a boy, my first thought was, ‘Dammit,'” Tyler explained in a “Featured Moment” clip that aired in 2015. “I really wanted a boy so bad.”

“And now that she’s here, I can’t even picture not having a girl. It’s weird, but I was pissed at first,” he added.

Catelynn first hinted publicly of the pregnancy back in August, when she posted a message to her Instagram account.

“Can’t wait to share our big news with y’all,” Catelynn wrote in rainbow-colored font.

She was likely alluding to the fact that she and Tyler are having what’s sometimes called a “rainbow baby,” which is basically a baby that comes after a miscarriage.

Earlier this year, Catelynn suffered a miscarriage shortly after announcing to Tyler, her family and her ‘Teen Mom’ film crew that she was expecting.

“Catelynn got pregnant and surprised Tyler and Nova and then had a miscarriage not long after,” The Ashley’s source told her at the time. “That happened right before she went to treatment. The crew and production staff heard she was about six weeks pregnant when it happened but no one is 100 percent sure.”

The aftermath of Catelynn’s miscarriage played out on an episode of ‘Teen Mom OG’ that aired earlier this year.

Watch Tyler explain (back in 2015) why he wants to have a son so badly:

  1. As someone who miscarried 2 weeks ago ( I had the D&c on September 5) this is a really encouraging story.

    As someone who’s watching Teen Mom for years, this is horrifying. These two should NOT be having another child. They’re not stable emotional and teen Mom is nearing its end, so they won’t be financially stable soon either. What a mess.

  2. Babies are a blessing. I hope for a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby. With that said, I dont think Cate is strong mentally for another baby. Having a newborn, with a toddler all while adjusting to your medication is not easy. She should of waited a couple years, to allow her body to adjust to her meds. This would of given her time to do therapy and properly grieve over the loss of her last pregnancy. Not to mention the stress of their home not being ready yet. So now you have a newborn, a toddler, a clothing buisness and a house that’s not ready, that would stress anyone out. I feel she will not be strong for this. I see another rehab visit and poor Tyler left behind to juggle it all.

  3. I’m not trying to be rude or “body shame” but I really think Cate would benefit from a breast reduction. I can’t imagine that is comfortable, especially for her back! And it has to make trying to exercise that much more difficult… idk. One of my best friends had a similar body-type (EEE bra!) and she had the reduction and it was literally life-changing for her… please don’t attack me ? Cate, girl – after you nurse this baby – you should go see Dr Dubrow!

  4. disgusting who will get off the couch to raise this one? sorry your on your 4th child it isn’t an accident. tyler had one foot out the door so lets get knocked up. who ever told you these pictures were good should be fired

    1. I thought the pics were bad too. The dress isn’t flattering at all. I just read she isn’t due until March 2nd. Based on those pics she looked like she was already 6 months along.

  5. She KNOWS she is going to catch a lot of shit for getting pregnant after being filmed in and out of rehab and horribly depressed, that’s why she did the fake “we were using protection and it still happened!” And she should catch a lot of shit. Babies are not bandaids. They have done nothing to better themselves as people or parents, and their daughter paid the price for their decisions. Why not add another sibling to the mix so when Nova feels sad and alone she can have some company to her misery? If they weren’t on tv everyone would be saying “popping out another one?! Stop it!” But bc they’re on teen mom it’s cute? No, it’s fucking not.

  6. Life is messy. Humans are far from perfect. If everyone waited til they had their sh*t together to have kids, the human race would die out.

    I’m rooting for them. It’s not how I would do a family, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve one.

    1. They alreadyhave a family and they already have a child. Perhaps they should do right by her before adding another one to the mix…

  7. And 99% of these comments are why mental health has the stigma it does and people are embarrassed about it. Yes it might not be the best thing for them, but it’s happening and I wish them the best. I hope she has enough tools to help if she has PPD again. She has had issues since she had Carly but I think being in that situation at her age it would mess anyone up.

      1. He really is. My gay dar goes ballistic when I look at him. There is something that went on with him a couple years back with some “manager” in new Orleans that was trying to help him with his “acting career”.

  8. It’s so hard… I want to be happy for them but they seem so unstable as a couple and individuals. I can’t imagine going through what they have been through in their lives but babies add such a level of stress that these two don’t need. They need some life coaching and humility.

  9. I have suffered trough horrible bipolar depression throughout my life and two VERY bad cases of postpartum depression after BOTH my children. After the second one I knew that mentally I could not put myself, my husband, or my children through that ever again. I’ve been hospitalized in a psychiatric ward 9x in my life and I knew adding more children to the mix, even though I wanted more, was not smart. My mind and body just cannot do any more. Too bad they couldn’t think of not only her heath and well-being, but the well-being of their children as well.

  10. So while Tyler was being filmed saying he was unhappy in his marriage, Cate was more than likely pregnant with their baby? Wow. Good luck with that you guys.

  11. “It was a total shock!” Cool. So she still hasn’t learned that unprotected sex can cause pregnancy? It’s not like she was on a show about teen pregnancy . . . oh wait.

    I’m calling her out, this was a band-aid baby and completely intentional.

  12. Can’t help wondering what Brandon and Teresa will think about this, remembering the reservations they seemed to have when Cate was pregnant with Nova. The reality of Carly having a full-blooded biological sibling and what the already tenuous “connection” to Cate and Ty through the open adoption agreement with Carly would bring.

    If I’m not mistaken, I think Brandon and Teresa adopted a boy after Carly? Therefore, the biological siblings that will be “out there” in the world who will look almost just like Carly, as opposed to the “adoptive” family scenario this couple tried to establish, etc., etc.

    In any case, like others here I hope Cate is well and strong enough now to handle another child, especially through the “infant crying and loaded diaper” stage. This above all — is the most important question for right now. At least, it is for the new baby on the way.

    1. At least as of a couple of years ago, B&T have the relationship with their son’s bio mom that they wanted to have with Cate and Tyler. She’s like an auntie or family friend. I think it’s more likely that Carly will be jealous that her brother has a “normal” extended bio family and hers is not healthy for her.

  13. People who congratulate them or think this is a good thing must be young and immature. They don’t take care of the kid they have! Cate is always in bed or rehab I do like Tyler at times but the things he says about cate publicly would make me a depressed mess too! They are both so unhappy and definitely shouldn’t be having another child right now,

  14. Does anyone actually believe they were using protection? No way was this totally unexpected. Those two seem to think that having babies solves everything, but then don’t want to put in the work once the baby actually exists. Cate and Tyler leave Nova with April for days at a time. They left her with BUTCH for a week so they could go on vacation. Less than a year ago, Cate was suicidal and basically living at rehab, leaving Nova totally confused and scared. Tyler claimed to be totally overwhelmed and admitted to his own mental health issues. Now, they’re going to bring yet another child into the world. I am struggling to feel like this is happy news. I just feel bad for these kids.

  15. I actually like Cate as a person; however, I doesn’t seem like the right time for her to be bringing another child in the world. I wish them the best, but when she was pregnant the last time, it seemed like Tyler was the one gunning for it and she clearly was not in the mental state for it.

  16. It’s official. I’m calling my daughter Butchette.

    Ok now for real, I have the feeling Cate thinks babies are some kind of magic cure for depression and that Nova just didn’t work so she just has to try again. Dangerous mindset.

  17. I just……..sorry but I hate Tyler. I just can’t imagine how he will be acting around her if she: gets pregnancy diabetes again, gets post partum depression again and of course her giving birth to another girl will just make him want have another kid soon so that he has a boy.

    STOP GENDER STEREOTYPING and stop with the whole BS “I want a boy, blah blah blah.” You aren’t the one who is giving birth, your wife is! And we all know her mental health is fragile. Do they honestly think another kid will make this all go away?!

    Be glad with the three healthy pregnancies you have and stop putting pressure on your wife!

    I only wish this child the best, it’s not her fault her parents are morons who can’t even take care of her sister properly.

    1. I literally know multiple men who have sons, and yet their daughters are the ones they have the most in common with and who they spent the most time with. Gender didn’t dictate anything, every person has different interests and to automatically set up a kid to be your little buddy to go hunting with or whatever is just disappointing.

      1. Exactly! I have more things in common with my dad, I’m more of the technical type of person, I don’t even have interest in make-up (that’s why I took Tyler’s comment about “mascara” to offense, I don’t wear it so what was his point!) etc. Honestly being born a woman and identifying as one doesn’t make me automatically love everything “girly”. It just make me a woman.

        1. Well said. Thank you. My daughter (7) isn’t being raised to think she can only like pink and princesses. I’m trying to push the opposite, just to balance out this culture.

        2. Right? I spent more time with my dad too! And guess what? My sons favourite colour is purple. He’s 2.5 yrs old. So husband came home with a brand new purple Frozen toothbrush for him. He is obsessed! We’re not about to force him into thinking his likes aren’t valid because they don’t fit a stereotype. And my husband is a hunting, beer drinking, truck driving man and he still understands not to push stuff on his sons.

    2. I don’t know why this has so many downvotes A? I feel the same way as you! I cannot stand people who are “trying for a girl , trying for a boy” who gives a shit!? Either you want a baby or you don’t. That’s all I hear at work.

      And either way, Catelynn should not be having another. She is too mentally fragile and not ready to parent. She marginally parents Nova.

    3. Seriously. This obsession with having a boy is ridiculous. It won’t fix his relationship with his dad. Having a boy doesn’t mean he’ll be into stereotypical “boy” things, having a girl won’t mean she’s into stereotypical “girl” things. Buy Carly a couple matchbox cars and get over yourself, Tyler.

  18. Poor kids. These two shouldn’t have had children period. They can’t handle them, and it’s selfish that they think they “deserve” babies, as if they’re just an accessory to be had. They pawn Nova off on anyone who will take her constant, and Cate literally has no hand in raising her. Also, when this show ends, they will not be able to support themselves let alone multiple children due to have zero maturity, low inelegance, and absolutely zero employable skills.

  19. Wow this is horrible. I bet once this child is born Catelynn will go back to rehab, because she doesn’t even take care of Nova. Their both idiots without degrees and jobs. April and Tyler will end up taking care of the new child and Nova, while Catelynn sobs and goes to rehab and manipulates Tyler into staying with her…

  20. I figured that she would get pregnant again sooner rather than later. I just hope that her mental health has improved…Her postpartum depression always seems so crippling to her….but congrats to them!
