Catelynn Lowell Confirms Pregnancy

Back on the very first season of 16 & Pregnant which begat Teen Mom and a porn star Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra were alone among their peers on the show in deciding to give up their baby for adoption. Despite that, they managed to make it to the Teen Mom season and have one of the more interesting story lines in the show. We saw them get engaged at the end of the first season of the show and they remained engaged until they appeared on Couple's Therapy which will cause anyone to question their relationship. They remained together though. They are the guardians for Tyler's sister. They both have full-time jobs taking care of mentally disabled adults. They own their own home and each have a car. The money they make from Teen Mom is almost all in savings. There has been a lot of growing up they have shared together over the past six years and I don't know if any of those things would have happened if they had not given up their baby for adoption. It is for that reason that I have always liked them included on the show because you see what happens to teens with different situations in their lives and how their teen pregnancies affect not only their lives, but the lives of their families and the kids themselves.

Based on the picture, I'm not sure if that needed to be confirmed...

I like them and I LOOOVED watching Butch and Catelynns bitchy meth mom

LottaColada said...

@Derek, how cray that Tyler's dad and Catelynn's mom are married?

bellaluna said...

Aww, congrats. I hope they make it.

derek harvey said...

@Lotta---lol I KNOW! They are the definition of trailer trash except Butch wasn't even allowed to stay at the trailer park! loll

Anyone watch Teen Mom 2 last night? I hate Jenelle with a passion---the way she treated those dogs---locking them up in a tiny cage?! grrrrr BITCH

VIPblonde said...

@Derek Haven't watched it yet, but it's on my DVR :)

Violet said...

Lotta I have a friend who's dad Is married to her husband's mum (both had been widowed). They are known as 'the parents'. If you think about it too hard though it hurts the brain.

SaintsFan said...

@Derek, I watched. I thought a lot of her whining carrying the dog cage was towards the film crew. I was feeling she wanted them to do it for her and they obviously don't. I don't like the way the dogs are kept in cages all the time and no one seems to walk them or care for them. I am not sure why they even have them.

Newbie post -

I was in NYC a few years ago and saw them, the first baby and the adoptive parents all getting brunch in the UWS. I had no idea they were any different from any other family (two parents, two teenaged kids, and one late 'surprise') until I noticed the camera crew there. Once I heard that they were the ones that gave up their baby on Teen Mom (which I don't watch) I had so much respect for all involved for being able to interact together, even if it's for TV. It must've been hard for Caitlynn watching the adoptive mom fussing over her/their baby. I'm glad the two of them got their lives together and have a real adult relationship (unlike janelle and the porn star girl)

Sherry said...

Who? Oh right..Who fucking cares?

derek harvey said...

@Saints---yes I agree---give up on Jace but buy 2 huge dogs? and that was my problem the dogs were HUGE in a tiny cage! and at one point sharing a tiny cage and the one dog was party pittbull! That poor Husky----I am no animal rights activist but it made me livid

figgy said...

I am delighted to hear of their earlier responsibility working out well for them.

But please, please, get married BEFORE the baby is born. For some reason I'm old-fashioned that way.

Karen said...

Ooh, thanks for that story, @Jennifer.

It's so good to hear about this couple making things work.

LottaColada said...

@Violet, Scandal!

sugarbread maker said...

my brothers girlfriend and my dad and her mom dated while they both dated for like 3 years.. totes kentucky awkward

Violet said...

The reality is super dull - 2 70 year olds living out their twilight years peacefully. No white trash here.

Bee Haven said...

Who? Too lazy to google. Tonight in safeway my hub and I had a laugh at the control panties, sunglasses and corrective body stockings with the Kardashian tick of Krap approval.

Tina Mallette said...

look at it this way if your mom and dad get married, cuts down on the in law situation, that's a good thing

Paint Chips said...

Good for them. I found Catelynn's mom endlessly fascinating. I'd watch her on Teen Grandma.

Cheryl said...

The show doesn't help you see how people in different situations and their families get on with their lives. My niece was one of the 16 and pregnant girls. The producers decide on a narrative and story line for that girl and that is what they show. It is not scripted, but carefully edited. Her father decided not to participate in the show, so it seemed like he wasn't in her life. Her story had a happy ending, but it was never mentioned in the followup segment.

Murphy said...

They're guardians on Caitlin's sister not Tyler's

auntliddy said...

Their story arc was fill of twists and turns. Catelynns meth mom was awful yet you felt sorry for her. These two souls gad zero parenting, no parental live, fought so hard to overcome the dysfunction around them that i will be and am thrilled for their happiness and sucess in life.

Danielle said...

uhhh wtf? How is Catelynn a "porn star"? I thought I saw every episode of her shows and there was no "porn star" crap. Are you thinking of Farrah maybe, Enties?

SaintsFan said...

Enty is not calling Catelynn a porn star, he/she missed a comma. Should be "....which begat Teen Mom and a porn star, Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra........"

New Life and Attitude said...

Catelyn and Tyler were and still are my favorites. Of all the teen moms (or at least most) they really had a rough time just with how they were raised with their parents. Yet they seemed the most mature and made decisions that were hard for them, but they chose not to be selfish and choose what was right for their baby. I remember watching and Catelyn's mom was so pissed with the decision. They both have had their struggles but they finished high school and it sounds like they've been smart with their money (they always seemed very frugal). Good for them now that they are older and have things together that they are having a baby (but like someone else said I hope they get married now).

Good for them x I'm so pleased

Anastasia Beaverhousen said...

I like these two...they seem so grounded when they have no reason in the world to be!

Fifinella Jacobson said...

She is quite possibly the worst human on earth

Trilby said...

Neat story!

Trilby said...

I am an animal rights activist and rescuer, & reading this makes me wanna rip her f****** heart out.

Trilby said...

And then lock HER in a tiny little cage.

witwritergirl said...

I wish them nothing but the best. You could always tell how much love there was between them. They stayed together through se pretty rough stuff. Many years of happiness to them.

Jennmcn said...

I have no idea who these people are but I sincerely hope it works out for them. Keeping the adoption open will make a huge difference. A friend of mine's parents had a baby that they were forced to give up for adoption as teenagers. They eventually got married and had three more boys. It was not a happy marriage but Irish Catholics mate for Life.

Eventually the first boy found his mother after the father had died.He was very, very bitter and made life Hell for her. He grew up in a much nicer family(no abuse, alcoholism,plenty of money) than my friend's but could never reconcile that he was given up for adoption. He hasn't been able to forgive even after all these years and has no relationship with his mother or 3 brothers. Very sad.
