Five years ago, teenagers Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra made the heartbreaking decision to place their daughter, Carly, for adoption during an emotional episode of 16 and Pregnant. Following the airing of their episode, Catelynn and Tyler went on to become advocates for adoption during their time on Teen Mom. Today, the couple announced that they are trying to become parents.
“We’re ready to have a baby,” Catelynn told In Touch Weekly.
Catelynn and Tyler are now 22 years old, and feel that they are finally in the right place to become parents.
“I was too young when I got pregnant with Carly — I was sad and scared,” Catelynn told the magazine. “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.”
