"Jesus.. that is so sad," one wrote. "I'm so sorry!!!"

Others tried to have her look on the bright side of the visit, with one commenting, "She knows [you're] there and it must mean so much to her!"

"Look at the happy side of it..." another added. "Your great grandma has lived such an amazing love filled life that she has three generations standing at her glass door because they want her to know how loved she is! Not all grandkids, great grandkids and great great grandkids would go to those lengths."

That same day, Lowell urged her followers follow medical professionals' advice to self-quarantine or practice social distancing, writing on Instagram, "If you can #StayHome, please do! You can even binge #TeenMomOG before the new season premieres Tuesday night! Let's all be #AloneTogether and stay positive."

On this season of Teen Mom OG, which premieres Tuesday, Lowell and husband Tyler Baltierra will be adjusting to life with two little ones at home, having welcomed daughter Vaeda Luma in February 2019, as well as renewing their vows after five years of marriage.


The family will also be considering expanding once again, according to the network season description, with Lowell and Baltierra trying to add a little boy to their family as Lowell considers a new career as a veterinary technician.
