On “16 and Pregnant,” after some incredibly emotional soul-searching, teenagers Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra decided to make an adoption plan for their daughter, Carly. In their eyes, they simply didn’t have the means to offer a child a suitable living environment, but they’ve grown up a ton in the five years since they appeared on the show, and now, both in their early 20s, Catelynn and Tyler have announced on Twitter that they’re trying to have a baby!
“I am an adult and I can tell when I’m ready and idc what ANYONE says I’m gonna do me! We ARE READY for a baby,” Catelynn posted yesterday, and also told InTouch that she and Tyler, who both have full-time jobs caring for developmentally disabled adults, are now a solid enough couple to take on the responsibility. “We’ve learned from what our parents did wrong,” she said. “Tyler and I own our own home, have two cars and actually have money to support a kid.”
Though Tyler called off the couple’s planned wedding while on VH1’s “Couple’s Therapy,” and he and Catelynn continued to sort through relationship issues on the recent “Teen Mom” follow-up special, “Being Catelynn,” 79 percent of Shows Blog readers who took our poll said they still think Catelynn and Tyler belong together, with reader damngina noting “They have all the big, tough commitments of a long-term relationship down.”
