Monday really was Labor Day for Taylor Halbur, girlfriend of Teen Mom 2‘s Adam Lind. The brand new mom went into labor yesterday and delivered her first child, a daughter named Paislee Lind, earlier today — the same day she was scheduled to be induced.
Taylor had been keeping her Twitter followers updated on the pregnancy and tweeted yesterday, “C’mon 7pm. Hurry up!!” seemingly hinting that they were going to induce labor at that point. She shared a couple photos from the hospital, including one in which she can be seen kissing Adam. Then, at 7:51AM this morning she tweeted, “Yeeeah. Contractions <" It was Taylor Halbur's close friend Molly who made the exciting birth announcement at 5:26PM by tweeting, "My niece is born!!! 7lb baby paislee!'so happy @thalbur89" Then Taylor posted the photo above of herself, Adam and daughter Paislee with the simple caption. "Family." Here's a zoomed-in shot of little Paislee:
UPDATE – And another photo of Taylor, Adam and Paislee posted by Taylor on instagram along with simply, “Love.”
UPDATE – Mo Paislee, mo Paislee, mo Paislee!! The top photo below of just Paislee was captioned “Sleepin on mommy.” The one underneath was described as “Father daughter love.”
Paislee Lind joins Adam Lind’s other daughter Aubree by Teen Mom 2 star Chelsea Houska. Paislee is the first child for Taylor.
Although rumors had been circulating for a while beforehand, Taylor’s pregnancy was officially confirmed in April by Adam’s lawyer when he subtly announced that his client was expecting a second child in August.
Taylor addressed the pregnancy one week later, saying, “I didn’t want to put my family in the middle of all the chaos it would make. Also, Adam and I decided that we didn’t want to make it public for the sake of our child. We knew there would be a lot of backlash from the viewers of the show.”
Taylor also defended Adam, who wasn’t exactly a fan-favorite dad on Teen Mom 2.
“I understand why people feel the way they do about him because they only see one side of the story. Yes, he has his faults and has made mistakes, but so has everyone else in the world. No one is perfect,” she said. “He doesn’t like this persona he has created for himself; he was young and made some poor decisions, but yet again, who hasn’t?”
Based on pictures and tweets since then, it really seems Adam learned from the first time around and has been a loving, supportive partner to Taylor. In turn, Taylor has embraced Aubree into the growing family — while remaining respectful of Chelsea’s role.
“My relationship with Aubree is great. Chelsea does a very good job raising her. She’s very bright and very smart,” Taylor said in April. “(She’s) just all around an adorable little girl.” (No doubt!)
Congratulations to Adam, Taylor and big sis Aubree on the new addition. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we can see a bit of the pregnancy play out on the upcoming season of Teen Mom 2…
