'Teen Mom OG' star Catelynn Lowell announces miscarriage
UPI News Service, 02/27/2018
Catelynn Lowell's miscarriage was confirmed on Monday's episode of "Teen Mom OG."
The 25-year-old television personality broke down on the MTV series after losing her unborn third child with husband Tyler Baltierra. Rumors of Lowell's miscarriage had first surfaced in January.
"I feel like maybe it just wasn't the right time. Thank God for kids and husbands," she said on the show.
"If they weren't around, I probably would have offed myself, seriously. I mean, I'm sure a lot of people can relate."
Lowell said in a phone call with Baltierra that she was struggling with anxiety in the wake of the ordeal.
"You'd be super proud of me today. I have, like, the anxiety, and I've been working through it," she said. "I just kept talking to myself, saying, 'You're beautiful, you're smart, you're strong. You're beautiful, you're smart, you're strong.'"
"That's good, honey, because you are beautiful and smart and strong. You are. You really are, honey," Baltierra responded.
Lowell sought help in December after experiencing suicidal thoughts after her miscarriage. She checked into a treatment facility again in January for "childhood trauma," and returned home Monday after completing her program.
"Finally home and it feels so good!" the star captioned a photo on Instagram with Baltierra.
Lowell and Baltierra share 3-year-old daughter Novalee, and are also parents to daughter Carly, whom they placed for adoption as teenagers.
