Catelynn Lowell has dropped a bit of a baby bombshell. The “Teen Mom OG” star took to her Instagram account earlier today with an ultrasound photo. No to ways about this – the post was all about a baby.
Lowell’s photo showed a fetus in the womb. Us Weekly’s logo appeared in the lower right-hand-side of the image, with the mom of three also linking her fans to the magazine as she encouraged followers to head to her bio for more.
Catelynn’s caption mentioned Christmas, alongside “[sharing]” some “baby news.”
Hard to say. Given, however, that the link in Catelynn’s bio redirected fans to a gallery of baby photos, it’s unlikely that the MTV face is expecting her fourth.
Catelynn disabled comments to her post, however, the update did rack up the likes: over 21,000 were clocked in the space of four hours.
False alarm updates such as these tend not to stay live after the initial buzz.
Catelynn might self-post pregnancy-centric updates to get her fans talking, but another face from the MTV franchise can generate hype just by stepping out in front of the camera.
Former “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans spent most of the summer being probed over her possible pregnancy status: the JE Cosmetics founder had social media asking plenty of questions back in August, with similar occurring as she launched her cosmetics brand at New York Fashion Week.
Jenelle has not confirmed a pregnancy.
Back in October, Catelynn settled the pregnancy rumors. Speaking to Us Weekly, Lowell confirmed that she and husband Tyler Baltierra might want a fourth, but not just yet.
“I am not pregnant and we are using birth control. But when we do decide to have another child, we are hoping for a boy. If we are meant to have all girls, then that’s just fine too! We are thinking of having another when Vaeda is about 1 or 2 years old.”
“Teen Mom” faces do seem to keep popping out babies, but for Catelynn and Tyler, four would likely be the limit.
“I will not keep trying until I have a boy,” the star said back in June.
“No, sorry. If we’re meant to just have girls, I guess that’s what we were meant to have. I’m not going to have, like, six or seven kids. Like, no thank you. I feel like I’m already going gray with two,” Catelynn added on having a large family.
Aside from newer “Teen Mom” face Cheyenne Floyd, former “Teen Mom OG” star Farrah Abraham remains the only original cast member to only have one child. Farrah is a mom to Sophia.
Meanwhile, it’s kids galore for the rest of them. Amber Portwood is a mom of two. Chelsea Houska is raising three kids. Leah Messer and Kailyn Lowry have the same deal going on. Even new “Teen Mom OG” face Mackenzie McKee comes complete with three kids.
Fans are likely awaiting a real pregnancy announcement from Catelynn and Tyler.
