Although the first episode of the final season of Teen Mom premiered on MTV Tuesday night, the big story Wednesday morning actually had nothing to do with a storyline from the show at all!
A friend close to Catelynn Lowell announced that the reality show star was pregnant again. Although she and Tyler decided to give their daughter, Carly, up for adoption, the source exclaimed that they were going to keep the second baby and, after being "in denial," were happy to be expecting parents.
The news spread like wildfire and, while most people believed the too good to be true story, there were several things that made this story seem odd. First, Catelynn Lowell recently gave an interview where she stated she would be waiting until she finished college before adding to her family. Not only that, but a statement from fellow Michigan native (and 16 & Pregnant alum) claimed the tabloid story was false. There was also a suspicious tweet from Tyler Baltierra just a few days ago, slamming people who start rumors (perhaps he found out about the story shortly before it went to press?) After a few hours, Catelynn decided to speak out about the rumor and set the record straight.
While fans were hoping that there was some truth to the rumor, Catelynn Lowell confirmed that she is not pregnant. To top it off, she even tweeted a new picture of her, and there is absolutely zero visible baby bump. In fact, Catelynn looks to have lost more weight! However, According to Wetpaint, InTouch is standing by their original story 100%.
Why would Catelynn's good friend (who even went as far as to give her full name) lie to a tabloid? Perhaps the entice of money was too good or maybe she truly believed the Teen Mom was expecting - who knows? This isn't the first time a close friend of the girls have had to endure tabloid lies told by friends. Jenelle Evans was sold out by Tori Rhyne a few months back and, while it took a few months for them to make-up, they eventually did. Hopefully Catelynn's friendship isn't tarnished by this.
