‘Teen Mom OG’ Stars Catelynn Lowell & Tyler Baltierra Reveal More Details About Their Newborn Daughter, Including Her Name

“All that peein’ in Tupperwares was worth it, Babe!”

Catelynn Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra recently welcomed their fourth child— another daughter—into the world but in the time since the baby’s birth, have refused to reveal her name. Instead, Catelynn (who has earned the nickname “Clickbait Cate” from annoyed fans) posted numerous links teasing– but not revealing– her daughter’s name.

On Thursday, however, the Teen Mom OG star finally finally revealed the baby’s name, along with details of her birth and how Cate and Ty’s older daughters, Nova and Vaeda, are reacting to their new sister. (Catelynn and Tyler are also the biological parents of 12-year-old Carly, whom they placed for adoption shortly after her birth.) 

Luckily (for the baby), the ‘Teen Mom OG’ stars didn’t bust out Tezlee, the name they had originally planned to give to Vaeda, for Baby No. 4.

In an interview with Celebuzz, Catelynn revealed the baby’s name.

“We are proud to announce our fourth and final little princess Rya Rose Baltierra!” she told the site.

Unlike Novalee and Vaeda (who were named after characters in 1990s movies), Rya appears to have avoided being saddled with a movie-inspired moniker. (In case you are wondering, Novalee was named after the main character in the movie “Where The Heart Is,” while Vaeda was named after protagonist in the movie “My Girl.”)

According to dictionary.com, a “Rya” is a “handwoven Scandinavian rug with a thick pile and usually a strong, colorful design.” Nameberry states that, as a name, Rya means “dream” in Arabic.

Catelynn gave the site an update on how she and the baby are doing now that they’re home from the hospital.

“Mom, baby, and dad are doing well and Rya is adored by all that meets her,” she said. “Novalee and Vaeda are over the moon! We are blessed beyond belief.”

Cate also revealed details of Rya’s birth, stating that the baby was born at 1:07 a.m. and weighed in at 6 lbs. 12 oz. She measured 20 inches long at birth.

Tyler recently posted a photo of himself (shirtless, natch) holding Baby Rya. Although he had been outspoken about wanting a boy, he proudly proclaimed himself as a “Girl Dad” on Instagram.

“There is no better feeling in the world than hearing your baby’s little breathing sync with yours as both of your heartbeats do the same through the warmth of your skin as it touches theirs,” he wrote. “I’m head over heels in love!  #DaddysGirl #GirlDad”

Catelynn has stated that Rya will be their final baby, despite the fact that she and Tyler never had a boy.

“While we wanted a boy since this is our last, as long as she’s healthy though that really is all that matters,” she told Celebuzz during a previous interview. “This is our last and final but we know one day we will have a grandson and adore him! Although Tyler’s been vocal about wanting a boy he’s not disappointed at all…All in all we are just excited to be completing our family regardless of gender.”

“Aww, what the hell, let’s give it another go. Bust out the Tupperware, Ty!”

  1. So Jenelle named her son Kaiser after a roll, Cate named her daughter Rya after a rug and Kail named her son Lux after soap! Alrighty then! Lol

  2. I read her name as Ry (as in it rye bread) then a (as in apple) so kind of like Mariah Carey, without the “Ma”. Who knows with them. I don’t have strong feelings either way. Just glad they didn’t go for Tezlee ??‍♀️

  3. So is it REE-UH or RYE-UH? I love a good unique name but REE-UH would be a hard road to sow. Diarrhea, the ever popular STD, the possibilities are endless ?

    1. What about Rhea Perlman or Mark Wahlberg’s wife (her name is Rhea but the maiden name escapes me)?

      Not all minds go to the negative and disgusting.

  4. Congrats I suppose, but what a weird comment about having a grandson??? Maybe your daughters won’t want to have children or maybe they’ll have girls as well? I’m aware gender disappointment is a thing and I think it’s a great opportunity to understand why you feel the way you do and work through your feelings, but these two (mainly Tyler) are next level with the disappointment.

  5. I’m even more immune to clickbait than I am communism. Besides, we already knew it would be a horrible name, so what’s the difference?

  6. Rya is way too normal for these guys… what if they go rogue and pronounce it “R-ya” (Arya).

    I die a thousand deaths for the thought.

  7. Their “link in bio” shit makes them impossible to root for.

    Maybe that makes me sound small but it really pisses me off. These are people who don’t work regular 9-5 jobs, are able to spend way more time with their kids than most of us, and make a HUGE amount of money with (mostly) manufactured drama.

    You have a fan base that got you where you are now, and you had to try to make money off them even with the name of your newborn. Ugh.

  8. They are so blessed with such healthy children. I hope they know how lucky they are.
    Congratulations on baby Rya.
    (Could it be pronounced Ri-a?)

  9. When I had my first daughter last year, the instinct to protect her was surprisingly strong from the moment I found out I was pregnant.

    I can’t fathom using a #linkinbio tag to profit off of and gain attention from a brand new, innocent life I created on social media.

    People say don’t look to the past with rose colored glasses, but honestly, I miss the world before social media.

    1. Vadea was a main character in the movie My Girl,
      Novalee was the main character in the movie Where the Heart Is.

  10. such a beautiful name! i hope they have all girl grandchildren for how annoying they’ve been about wanting a boy though

      1. I get downvoted ALL THE TIME!!! I don’t even fucking care anymore…I’ll say what I wanna say and stick to it till the death of me!!!
