Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have welcomed a baby girl on New Year’s Day.
This is the second child for the couple, who gave up their first daughter, Carly, for adoption as teenagers.
Catelynn went into labor early on Thursday morning, with her fiance Tyler Baltierra keeping fans updated on her progress.
Lowell went into labor early in the day, and her father later posted a message that she gave birth at 3:15 p.m.
Catelynn and Tyler named their daughter Nova Reign. She weighed in at 6 lbs 12 ounces and measured 19.5 inches.
Proud dad Tyler posted a photo of Catelynn with their newborn daughter. He wrote, “Momma Bear holding our little angel! Can’t tell you the feeling of witnessing this. Look at my beautiful bride to be! That woman is beyond strong, caring, and selfless. Couldn’t have asked for a better little family #Blessed #NewYearBaby #MyGirls #AreMyWorld”
Tyler tweeted earlier on Thursday, “IT’S HAPPENING! Here we go, doing this all over again. This is surreal, I’m freakin out a little lol but can’t wait to meet my little angel! Thinking a lot about Carly right now. It’s bringing me back. Even though I know this time I will actually be taking her home. I love my girls!#CantWait #Nervous #Excited #Scared #Happy”
Catelynn’s father, David Lowell, announced that his new granddaughter had arrived.
David posted, “Its official.. Grand baby born 01/01/15 at 15/15 .She’s Beautiful!!”
Catelynn reportedly gave birth at 3:15 p.m.
Family members stated the birth went smoothly and the family is so excited.
Catelynn Lowell is not the only Teen Mom star to welcome a baby this year. Her co-star, Maci Bookout, is also pregnant again and expecting later this year.
We are so happy for this couple. They made such a tough and selfless decision to put their first daughter up for adoption, even without their family’s support. Congrats you guys!
