After teasing that she might be expecting again, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell has confirmed that she is pregnant in a series of maternity photos taken by her husband, Tyler Baltierra!
“The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby,” Catelynn tells Us Weekly. “This baby is our rainbow after the storm,” she adds, referencing her miscarriage last fall. “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.”
Catelynn’s comments were paired with some beautiful maternity photos featuring Catelynn and daughter Nova that were apparently taken by Tyler. Here he is proudly owning them on Twitter:

As documented on the show last season, Catelynn’s struggles after her miscarriage would lead her to have suicidal thoughts and eventually resulted in another stay at a rehabilitation center.
Catelynn teased the pregnancy news with an Instagram post last month. “Can’t wait to share our big news with y’all!!! Catelynn wrote in rainbow-colored letters on August 22.
The pregnancy rumor mill continued to churn after Catelynn’s new co-star Cheyenne Floyd posted a photo of the five Teen Mom OGs having drinks together — with four margaritas and one non margarita:
The pregnancy does seem a bit soon given Catelynn’s recent struggles, and she reveals that it was a little sooner than expected. “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,” she says.
“It was a huge shock at first,” Catelynn admits. “We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness.” But, the mom-to-be asserts: “I’m super excited!”
As far as the sex of the baby, The Ashley’s Reality Roundup “hears” that Catelynn and Tyler “will be welcoming yet another girl.”
