Catelynn and Tyler had a baby together as teenagers on MTV’s Teen Mom and gave the child, Carly, up for adoption to her new parents Brandon and Teresa (although, even after getting counselling, the young parents still seem to be struggling with the open adoption and regularly complain on social media that they’re prohibited from sharing recent photos of their biological daughter).
Last month, Catelynn and Tyler spoke to In Touch Weekly confirming that they were actively trying to conceive. “I would’ve felt guilty if I got pregnant again when Carly was 1 or 2. But we’ve both been yearning for this,” Catelynn, who stopped using birth control three months ago, told ITW. “We’re ready to have a baby!”
“I was too young when I got pregnant with Carly — I was sad and scared,” Catelynn explains of giving birth in 2009. “We’ve learned from what our parents did wrong. Tyler and I own our own home, have two cars and actually have money to support a kid,” she adds of the couple of 10 years both having full-time jobs caring for developmentally disabled adults near their home in St. Clair, Mich. “We have no doubt that raising a child will be hard. But I know we’re going to be really great parents.”
Days ago, Tyler shared on Facebook that he wished Carly was still part of their family, “Thinking of my daughter A LOT!…I wish she could be here to share the joy of today with me.”
Now, relatives confirm in Facebook posts she’s already pregnant. Catelynn’s brother River wrote “Catelynn is pregnant.”
Her mother wrote “Gonna be a grandmother again.”
