‘Teen Mom OG’ star Maci Bookout is currently pregnant with her second child (a baby girl who is due in June!) and Catelynn Lowell recently gave birth to her second daughter with fiance Tyler Baltierra. Things are different this time though, the ladies of ‘Teen Mom’ are no longer teens and can finally enjoy the experience of being pregnant and having a child.
“It’s different this time,” Maci told UsWeekly, “because I’m excited and everyone around me is excited whereas before it was a touchy subject, people didn’t want to talk about it. I mean I was 16… It’s just a completely different feeling now.“
Catelynn Lowell says that she and Tyler have wanted to be parents ever since placing their first daughter Carly for adoption 6 years ago. “At first, we were both excited about it because, we’ve been wanting to be parents for so long, and we knew we weren’t ready at 16 and we felt more ready this time,” Cate told the magazine, “and then, an hour later, for me, it was instant anxiety, panic attack because I’m like, ‘Wow, this is real and this is happening.’ I think whatever age you are, it’s probably going to be nerve-racking.”
Cate and Ty get a lot of flack from “fans” for having a child after placing their first. “Just because we placed our first baby does not mean we can never have children again. And people think that.“
“From being 16 to 23, we’ve just had a huge difference in our relationship…” Cate continued, “We worked on our relationship, we worked on ourselves. We own a home, we have cars. We’re very stable. So, she’ll always have a roof over her head. So we’re way different than what we were at 16.”
