In a shocking announcement, Teen Mom OG stars Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra have revealed they are expecting their third child together!
Catelynn revealed the big news to Us Weekly, saying, “The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby. This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited. 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.”
She added: “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. It was very unexpected.”
Along with the announcement, the publication and the Baltierra’s shared some very sweet photos of Catelynn’s maternity shoot that features their 3-year-old daughter, Nova.
Fans who have followed Catelynn and Tyler’s story on MTV know that it all began back in 2009 when they pair were only 16 and appeared on 16 and Pregnant. They welcomed their daughter, Carly, on May 18, 2009 and placed her for adoption, and their story on Teen Mom OG has documented their decision to do so.
The pair welcomed their second daughter, Novalee “Nova” Reign on January 1, 2015 and were married later that year on August 22, 2015.
This pregnancy news comes after a very difficult time for the couple, who suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in 2017 which was also documented on Teen Mom OG. Meanwhile, Catelynn has opened up about her severe depression and suicidal thoughts, which was increased after her miscarriage.

16. How Catelynn and Tyler First Met
Catelynn and Tyler have been together since they were 12-years-old. Tyler said the first time he ever noticed Catelynn was in music class. “This girl is cute as hell, but in a tomboy way. She isn’t wearing tons of makeup and she hasn’t styled her bright blond hair. She has on a couple studded bracelets, flare jeans and skater shoes, and a shirt that says, ‘I’m with the drummer.’ Her smile lights up the room and her eyes are a beautiful piercing gray,” he wrote. He immediately made up his mind that he needed to be with her and it didn’t take long for Catelynn to develop feelings in return. Once her boyfriend was out of the picture, Tyler made his move. “There was no big production about it. All I did was walk up beside her and take her hand…Catelynn just held my hand back. We didn’t even look at each other. That was just it. We just walked on ahead, holding hands, and we’ve been together ever since,” he said.
