Teen Mom's Tyler Baltierra Wants a Son by 'Next Year' Despite Wife Catelynn's Postpartum Depression Fears
Catelynn seemed overwhelmed at the idea of another baby
On Monday’s new episode of the MTV reality series, the two 25-year-olds prepared for their daughter, Nova’s, second birthday party, and Tyler told his wife that he wanted another baby, preferably a son.
Catelynn, seemingly overwhelmed by the idea of another pregnancy, told him, “I’m not sure if I want a big family or not,” before she asked, “I mean, how soon would you want to have another kid?”
Tyler told her that by “next year” he’d like another addition, and quickly added, “You want babies!”
“Yeah, eventually,” she told him. “But it also scares me, after having my first one that I went all postpartum and s—. It freaks me out. That makes me way more hesitant this time around.”
After Nova’s party, Tyler’s mom, Kim, asked her son if they’ve thought about having another baby, noting that Tyler “would be more for it than Cate right now.”
“You and Cate … is she pregnant?” Kim asked as Tyler said, “No,” while nodding his head.
“What does that mean?” she said of his response.
“I think now it’s a little different, because I want one,” Tyler told her. “I don’t have to carry it or anything.”
“Yeah, don’t have one until she’s ready,” Kim recommended. “Because mom’s are the one’s that really do everything, let’s face it.”
The other moms in the episode faced their own troubles, with Amber revealing she could never have children after Leah because it would mean stopping the medication she takes for her Bipolar disorder. Farrah shared her plans to move to San Diego, California with her daughter, and Maci faced telling Ryan that Bentley will spend Thanksgiving with her instead of him.
