Teen Mom 2 Recap: Catelynn Lowell Welcomes a Baby Girl!

by at .

It's been a rough year for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra.

Fortunately, Monday night's episode of Teen Mom OG focused on a recent highlight for the troubled couple.

Back in February, Catelynn welcomed her third child, a baby girl named Vaeda.

With all these two have been through, it was a joy to witness their obvious elation at Vaeda's arrival.

Teen Mom cast members frequently complain that they're treated unfairly in the editing process or that the show only focuses on the negative aspects of their life.

Something tells us Lowell and Baltierra have no such complaints about last night's episode.

Take a look:

“Maybe it’s just really not that important to him,” Tyler said at one point.

11. Putting It In Perspective

“Isn’t it crazy to choose drugs over your kids, too. Isn’t it crazy to want to go to prison over being there [for them]?” he pondered.

12. Through the Years

Butch has put his family through an awful lot over the years, and Tyler's mother revealed that he was "dead" to her following the debacle portrayed on Monday night's episode.
