When Teen Mom‘s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra welcomed daughter Novalee Reign in January, it was inevitable that the birth would inspire them to reflect on their emotional first experience with parenthood.
In an exclusive clip from Monday’s episode of OG, the fiancés bond with baby Nova and can’t help but become overcome with emotion as the memories resurface of giving up their first daughter, Carly, for adoption.
“We only know one way of doing this,” admits Tyler, “and that’s, you hold her for three days, and you love on her –”
“And then she’s gone,” finishes Catelynn, who quickly dissolves into tears.
“I feel like, it’s kind of like a dream,” Catelynn says of taking Nova home. “When we left the hospital, they took me out the same doors as they took me out with Carly, and I was just like, ‘Wow, this is crazy.’ ”
Still, says Tyler, “She sure is worth all the crazy crap we went through, huh? And then I think about what our relationship was like [when Carly was born] – we never would have made it.”
Teen Mom OG airs Mondays (10 p.m. ET) on MTV.
