If you’ve been following the MTV show Teen Mom, the sequel to its cult hit 16 and Pregnant – teen parents Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are no strangers to you. In the original show, the couple placed their new baby, whom they named Carly, up for adoption. A decision that both agree was for the best.
In an interview with People Magazine, Catelynn, who is now 18 says,
“We’re not the right parents for her now”. Tyler, who is also 18, responds “She deserves so much better.”
Although the couple, who are now engaged, both think of their daughter often, they have no regrets about giving her up for adoption. Both have sought counselling to deal with their feelings about giving up their daughter, much of which has been shown on Teen Mom. Catelynn says that
“There’s not a day she doesn’t pass my mind. I want to make her proud.”
It seems that she is taking steps in the right direction to do so. Even though Catelynn’s mom was against the adoption, Catelynn and Tyler knew that they were making the right decision for their daughter. You can watch Teen Mom on MTV, Tuesdays at 10pm.
