Catelynn Baltierra responds to sonogramgate, says it was ‘my way of messing with people’

Catelynn Baltierra Instagram sonogram joke

Earlier this week Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell posted a sonogram photo on Instagram that included a cartoon baby and the caption “Proud to announce a new baby Baltierra.” She later revealed that the picture was a joke, but a lot of her followers — especially those women having difficulty conceiving — were not amused.

Catelynn later sat down with People for an interview in which she explained her motivation for posting the joke sonogram:

“I posted it because, like, people don’t see what I see on Twitter all the time,” Catelynn says in the clip. “People kept asking and saying, ‘Oh, she’s pregnant. She’s definitely pregnant.’ If you see the picture that I posted, it’s a fake baby in a uterus picture.”

Here’s the original Instagram post:

Catelynn Lowell Baltierra sonogram joke

Catelynn continues her explanation: “For me, it’s my way of messing with people and be like, ‘Oh, look! You’re all right again!’ And no. You’re really not.”

Catelynn was asked about how much she was surprised by the negative reactions, especially from those women having difficulties conceiving their own children. “If I did offend anybody that struggles with that, I apologize and I can say that I am sorry,” she admits. “I am though, because some girls and women do struggle with it and can’t have babies. Sorry if I offended anybody,” Catelynn continues. “That’s not what I meant to do at all.”

So does she regret posting the sonogram? “No,” Catelynn says flatly.

Catelynn’s Teen Mom OG co-star Amber Portwood agrees. “If you don’t mean it a certain way, you shouldn’t have to sit there and say you’re sorry,” Amber says of the hahanogram.

So no baby for now — what about in the future? “To all the people who are freaking out because they want me and Tyler to have more babies, we will one day,” Catelynn reveals. She adds that she is “definitely still on birth control” but then reveals “I’m definitely having the urges because now my daughter just started preschool and, you know, so she’s not a baby any more. I think that’s natural. But not yet.”

The People reporter presses Catelynn on an estimate on when she and Tyler will have another baby. “Probably a year,” Catelynn says.

      The people who constantly “accuse” her of “definitely being pregnant again” or are of the opinion that she should never have any more babies because she made the brave and considerably love driven decision to put her first baby up for adoption when she was 16 years old instead of having an abortion, they are the immature ones and downright stupid. People like the Teen Mom’s that live with their life out in the open, to share their lives with us…the good, the bad and the ugly… have to find a way to laugh about the crap people say about them all the time. If people are going to judge her over a joke that she has used as a coping mechanism then they shouldn’t follow her or read her threads.

        Actually, most people think she shouldn’t have any more kids because of her mental illnesses, not because of the adoption.

        • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

          I don’t think she needs more right now because of her mental illness, her laziness as a mom, and their lack of income for the future. How do you have kids and no job?

          • YourMom

            Welfare!!! Lol lots of people do it! The more kids you pop out, the more $$ you get 😉

        • tina

          and her laziness her pot smoking can’t get off the couch and take care of her own child. Before i’m jumped I struggle with depression more so with each child but guess what I did what I had to do work, take care of my house my family there was no option of laying on couch doing nothing

    • Christina White

      Your all cry baby bitches

      • cookie

        You’re*

      • SammyG

        That’s the wrong use of “your”. What it is supposed to be is “you’re”.

    • Victoria

      I just hope she and her wife stop talking about Carly before Brandon and Teresa stop visiting

      • Regina

        Loooooooooooool

    “The People reporter presses Catelynn on an estimate on when she and Tyler will have another baby. “Probably a year,” Catelynn says.”

    What?? Can’t you concentrate on beating depression and your low self esteem issues and instead of having more kids in the near future?! 🤦🏽‍♀️ She wants to secure the next two seasons of Teen Mom to keep that gravy train rolling 🙄

    • Kimberly D Jaime

      You obviously have NO EXPERIENCE DEALING with depression.
      You don’t BEAT depression in all honesty it beats you up oneside of your head and down the other!!!

      I have experience with both situations – Having had 5 mis-carriages and depression.
      Unfortunately when people make insulting comments with out truly THINKING is when things become offensive – Why not stop and think?
      “Will my comment cause any discontent?”
      I am more offended by your very inconsiderate comment then by her very obvious pretend post.

      • Guest

        If anything, Catelynn should stop and think about how her mental illnesses affect her kids.

      • Chu ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

        I have experienced depression and post partum depression. I’m not crazy enough to get pregnant on purpose knowing that it will spiral me down in the pits of depression. She’s doing this all for show. I don’t care about her instagram post, people do it all the time. The fact that she said they’ll end up having another kid in a year’s time is what flabbergasted me.

      • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

        As someone with depression I say grow a pair snowflake. If you’re going to walk around being upset and offended by bullshit that’s YOUR problem. Not anybody else’s.

        • Kimberly D Jaime

          of course a part of the peanut gallery speaks up with out the common sense to read and understand what was written. Obliviously

    • Guest

      This!

  • Ali.P

    While I think it was a stupid joke, it’s ridiculous how offended everyone gets at every little thing. I have children, two came easily, the other two I had to fight for in between miscarriages so I know that it’s a sensitive subject and it sucks to have a hard time conceiving (or not be able to at all). But, holy crap, can people just make jokes? If you don’t like it, ignore it. It wasn’t making fun of anyone’s race, looks or whatnot. She’s constantly asked if she’s pregnant so she made a joke, albeit a really lame one.

    • Jojo

      Totally agreed. Yeah it was the *whomp whomp* of jokes, but we can’t all be stand up material. I’ve had five miscarriages, never carried to term and accepted that due to age and circumstance I won’t be a mom to my own “tribe”… but I don’t start a petition every time someone says “baby”

      • Jordan Clarke

        Also sorry that you had to go through that, too. I also hope that you’re okay too

        • Jojo

          Thank you 😊

    • Jordan Clarke

      Sorry you had to go through miscarriages. Hope you’re okay

      • Ali.P

        That was sweet, thank you ☺️

    • ChelseaHouskasEyebrows

      Struggling with infertility right now but Jesus. Some women the stuff way to personal. I don’t think it’s funny but its also not that deep.

  • Guest

    Why even consider having another baby when you’re struggling mentally?

  • Jennifer Fithian

    People need to lighten up it’s not her fault if you can’t get pregnant and she’s allowed to make a joke…. whether you think it’s funny or not….

  • AshleyBlack

    I have to admit I did this in high school. When I was a child. Now as an adult I can see why it’s completely inappropriate and hurtful. If you’re a person who has had trouble with pregnancy and miscarriages & you don’t see an issue with this then great for you! But I think pregnancy shouldn’t be a joke.

  • Beba16

    Just a fat slob that has nothing better to do. LAZY ASS.

    • Guest

      I know, right? Getting a proper job should be a priority for both of them.

    • Victoria

      They still don’t work?

If people are going to judge her over a joke that she has used as a coping mechanism then they shouldn’t follow her or read her threads. And, yes, she’s immature, she’s in her 20’s and did not have the type of parental influence she needed as a child.

    • Chu ♪♫•*¨*•.¸¸♥

      uh huh. I don’t see why the two are having more children in the near future. They don’t have real jobs and she admits battling depression. WTF does she not realize women with depression before pregnancy will have a high chance of getting post partum depression. They don’t even put on a good show on Teen Mom, 90% of the time they are eating or sitting on the couch doing nothing -_- Such great role models.
      Another thing, yes they didn’t have parental influence NEWSFLASH she is over 20! I had a f u c k e d up childhood but you don’t see me blame my parents any longer, any mistakes I make in the NOW, I own up to them.

  • Dreamboat Annie

    I always liked her but if she can’t get her lazy arse out of bed to take care of her daughter, she shouldn’t even consider having more. Pot takes away ambition so that definitely didn’t help and she never bothered to give that up. You can’t lay around smoking pot all day and be a mother. For that matter, you can’t be lazy and be a mother.

  • pink Glitter

    I don’t get how other people’s uteruses upset others so much

  • Nathan’s Former Gym Membership

    This was a straight up ploy for attention. Funny how she did this days before the new season starts. This is another reason why these drain hairs need real jobs and live life without a camera and publicity. People with real jobs don’t have time to waste on twitter playing jokes.

    • Regina

      Drain hairs hahahahaha

  • Jaimie

    Mentally ill & white trash. Her and Tyler are irrelevant.

  • SciLife

    The Teen Moms (and most reality show “celebrities”) are really unprofessional on Twitter. You don’t see most athletes and actors/actresses engaging with their followers like this. While it stirs up drama and makes things interesting for us, if Twitter comments bother them so much they should have someone manage their public accounts and have a separate account for close family and friends. I can never understand why they get so fired up and about what strangers say. They just end up saying something rude or stupid that makes them look really immature.

  • cookie

    Not funny at all

  • FR

    if she is having the urge to be a mother because her baby started PRE-school, she could just be a mother to her existing baby and keep her at home. pre-school is another word for daycare.

    • Mimi

      Preschool is a tool for children. There IS actual learning going on at Preschool. I work at a preschool and my kids can count to ten, say their abc’s, know their colors, and many other objectives. We also work on milestones such as fine motor skills, sharing, and speaking clearly. Preschool is a great way to get your child prepared for actual school as it also prepares them for you leaving them for the day and being around children their ow age.

  • Courtney

    I can’t stand when people say, “If I offended anyone”. A sincere way of saying it would be, “to those that I offended”.

  • Courtney

    I think Tyler really wants another baby and Cait knows she doesn’t want another, at least anytime soon, but she’s afraid to tell Tyler because she thinks he will leave her. Tyler is very manipulative and selfish and Cait is an insecure follower. Cait needs to try to be a better mom to the kid she has now before bringing another kid into their lives. I say better mom because she doesn’t seem to actually spend that much time mothering her daughter. Also, Tyler probably only really holds the baby while cameras are watching but once cameras leave I really doubt he spends any time being a father and actually watching/taking care of his daughter.

  • http://www.iam lucky love

    Snowflakes offended once again. Everyone go to your safe place & suck your thumb. Learn to suck it up people the whole world does not revolve around your butt hurt self. If you don’t like someone’s poor taste of a joke, just don’t laugh. Jesus God Leah.

  • tina

    the lazy cow can’t take care of the one she has neither her or her husband have a real job. They smoke drink ignore their child god help them having another one. also would be interesting if she was pregnant because from his last season talking heads and on the show he acts like he can’t stand her
