On Monday, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell announced that she's expecting her fourth child with her husband, Tyler Baltierra. On Instagram, she posted a photo with two of her daughters, Nova and Vaeda, and wrote that she was expecting her "rainbow" baby following a pregnancy loss towards the end of 2020. Lowell's fans couldn't help but express their excitement over the Teen Mom star's growing family in response to the news.
Lowell kept her pregnancy announcement short and sweet. As aforementioned, she posted a photo of her daughters, with Nova holding up a sign that reads, "27 weeks until I become a big sister." She also posted a sonogram photo and a snap of a positive pregnancy test that she took. Alongside the slideshow, Lowell wrote, "The rainbow was worth the storm. Baby Baltierra coming soon."

Lowell previously suffered a pregnancy loss in 2017 and it prompted her to seek out inpatient mental health treatment after she was experiencing suicidal thoughts. In January, the reality star told PopCulture.com that her former mental treatment definitely helped her as she navigated her most recent loss. She said, "I think I could just tell a big difference. The first miscarriage that I had really overcame me — my anxiety was in high gear and wouldn’t leave for weeks."prevnext
