Reports that Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage are heartbreaking.
The Teen Mom OG star has reportedly sought guidance from rehab, but fans are now for the first time seeing her joy upon learning that she's pregnant on the show itself.
Quite the contrast from her current grim reality.
A new report reveals how Catelynn is coping ... and that MTV's crew has been instructed to walk on eggshells around her in this trying time.
On the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn Lowell revealed that she was pregnant.
She shared the news with Tyler Baltierra by putting Nova in a shirt that read "I'm going to be a big sister!"
Kind of a weird way for Tyler to find out what was, at the time, good news. But a cute reveal nonetheless.
Unfortunately, we already know that Catelynn Lowell suffered a miscarriage.
That's one of the pitfalls of reality television being filmed months in advance -- you see sad life events coming in the distance like an oncoming train, but you can't get off of the tracks.
Catelynn has reportedly not taken this well.
Everyone grieves differently. Everyone processes negative emotions differently.
And no two people have the exact same response to the very personal tragedy of a miscarriage.
Considering the childhood trauma that Catelynn has endured, it's very understandable that she faces additional challenges when it comes to grief and loss.
Grappling with suicidal thoughts, Catelynn Lowell checked herself into rehab for her own safety and well-being.
As a reality star, Catelynn has to relive her suffering as her story unfolds for fans and viewers on Teen Mom OG.
But there is still so much that fans don't know. Obviously, many -- though not all -- know better than to directly ask Catelynn about her alleged miscarriage and about details of her stint in rehab.
Keep in mind that a lot of this is unconfirmed, but based upon reports of what people who work on the show were told.
Still, the story adds up.
The pregnancy reports (now confirmed on the show), the confession of suicidal ideation, the rehab reports.
This is all so sad.
HollywoodLife reports on how Catelynn Lowell is coping and on the Teen Mom OG star's current state of mind:
"Catelynn is not ready for any of this to be public right now so it’s complicated."
Yes, it certainly is.
"It’s such a delicate subject there’s a lot of mystery around what exactly happened and the crew has been told not to ask her about it and not to mention it to anyone so there is a lot of unknowns."
True. It's good that the crew has been instructed to be sensitive at this time, but there has to be some unspoken awkwardness on set. Or so we imagine.
"Obviously Catelynn is having a very hard time coping right now so the priority is just getting her stable again."
Absolutely. We all want to know, but Catelynn's health and well-being come first.
Still, the source ends on a positive note.
"It’s a dark time, but she’s a fighter and she’ll make it through."
Considering all that Catelynn has already been through, we're inclined to agree.
Catelynn may have filmed rehab footage for Teen Mom OG. If so, we'll all get front-row seats to an early and crucial stage of her recovery.
But grief and mourning aren't something that you can complete during a stint at an Arizona facility.
Regardless of what makes it on camera, we expect that Catelynn will share her story with fans when she's good and ready.
