Teen Mom stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra rang in the new year by welcoming a baby girl together January 1. Nova Reign Baltierra is here at last!
The proud father shared the exciting news, and photo, of his daughter's arrival.
Tyler Tweeted, “OMG guys, my daughter is BEAUTIFUL! Can’t wait for you guys to see her! Born on 1/01/15 at 3:15. #StillCantBelieveIt #ShesPerfect.”
You don't have to watch Teen Mom online to know that this is a bittersweet time for the couple, who gave up their first daughter, Carly, up for adoption in 2009.
At the time, the reality stars were in high school and felt they couldn’t handle the responsibility of a child. Remarkably, they have been together ever since.
They're keeping this one, and if all goes according to plan, Nova and Carly - with whom Catelynn and Tyler have a relationship - will get to know each other well.
Carly's adopted parents have requested that the MTV figures don't post photos of her, and they adhere to those wishes. But they do receive them.
Tyler and Cate have spent time with her, as well, so it really has worked out.
“I’ll never hide anything from my kids. Our child [will grow up] with Carly around her,” Catelynn said of her hope that Nova and Carly will grow up close.
“My hope is that they’ll have a great relationship one day. They’re sisters.”
Nova was 19-inches long and 6 lbs., 12 oz., when she arrived at 3:15 p.m.
Since MTV is filming another season of the hit show, there is little doubt that the new baby will be on it, though it's not clear if Nova's birth was captured.
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, who are also step-siblings, are not the only couple who will welcome a Teen Mom baby into the world this year.
Maci Bookout is pregnant with her second child now, joining Kailyn Lowry, Jenelle Evans and Leah Messer among Teen Mom stars who got pregnant again.
Only Catelynn's second pregnancy was by the same father, however.
Congratulations to the longtime couple on their new arrival on a day they'll never forget! Literally, it would be close to impossible to forget Nova's birthday.
