Teen Mom legends! Tyler BaltierraAnd Catelynn Lowell’s romance has continued to grow as they expanded their family.
After the 16 and Pregnant After learning that Baltierra was expecting their first child, an alum decided to place Carly, born in 2009 up for adoption. Brandon Davis and Teresa Davis.
“I remember just staring at her while she was sleeping, like, ‘Oh, my God, I can’t bring a kid into this craziness,’” Baltierra recalled during a November 2021 appearance on the “Reality Life With Kate Casey” podcast. “At that time, my dad was with her mom, they were both using [drugs], it was just kind of wildAnd unpredictable and crazy. It was pure panic to me. … We both kind of looked around. It was like it was instinctual without any words. It was like a feeling. From then on, we just kind of knew adoption was just the right thing to do.”
The Michigan natives — who wed in 2015 — went on to welcome daughters Novalee, Vaeda and Rya in 2015, 2019 and 2021, respectively.
“You do get sad having more children after [adoption]. It does help to know what it is. [raising Carly] was like,” Baltierra told host Kate CaseyDuring the podcast interview. “When we saw Nova get older … we [went]Back to the old photos Teresa sent us when [Carly] was that same age and it helped a little bit.”
As the Conquering Chaos authors raise their youngest daughters, they’ve remained in touch with Carly and the Davises.
“They are her parents. They get to make all the decisions for her and rightfully so,” Lowell exclusively told Us Weekly October 2021. “Relationships are hard any which way. So it’s just all about, like, growing and learning and maneuvering.”
Carly is even acquainted with her little sisters. “We have sent her mom and dad pictures and stuff like that,” the Teen Mom OG star told Use at the time. “She’s seen her, but not in person yet.”
Lowell and Baltierra are focused on their children, but they already have future babies in the brain.
“We have discussed it,” the semi-permanent makeup artist previously told Us in January 2021 ahead of Rya’s arrival. “Yeah, if we weren’t able to have one more, sure, [we’d adopt]. Most definitely. But who knows at this time?”
She continued: “[We]Do you desire to have one more child? [our] last child. It’s just up to the universe right now. I suppose that whatever happens, it will happen at its own pace. I don’t know when that will be.”
