Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra are having a baby.
But some Teen Mom OG viewers have seen their excitement tempered a bit by the reveal of what Catelynn and Tyler will name this impending daughter.
Many of us have simply been left confused by the collection of letters here.
Thankfully, Tyler understands said confusion and is happy to explain how he and his wife arrived at their decision.
Scroll down to find out!
On the latest episode of Teen Mom OG, Tyler, Catelynn and her mom visited the doctor for a 4D ultrasound appointment. The doctor asked if the couple had thought of a name for their daughter and they said yes... this is it!
It Doesn't Exactly Roll Off the Tongue
Most viewers were left scratching their heads, wondering just how the couple arrived at such a decision.
But Now We Know!
Catelynn and Tyler spoke with Us Weekly for a podcast that was released shortly after this episode aired. The first subject tackled? What's up with Tezlee as a name?!?
If It Sounds Unique...
... that's because it is. "We were looking at names and we were just writing it down and I don’t know … I saw Lesley and I’m like, ‘No, not Lesley’ It’s kinda weird. We just put different words together, letters together," Tyler explained on this podcast.
There's a Theme. We Swear!
"We wanted to keep Lee in there ’cause [of our daughter] Novalee, so we just played around with it and then Tezlee [came up]," Tyler continued. "I sent Cate a whole list of different names, of ones that I looked at, saw or kind of combined myself and she took that one!"
Hey, Whatever, Guys!
Seriously. After Catelynn suffered a miscarriage several months ago, we're just pleasantly surprised these two are expecting again. It's a miracle.
Or It's a Rainbow, To Be More Accurate
"This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited," Catelynn said upon announcing the news this summer, using the term for a child conceived AFTER a miscarriage.
Catelynn admitted at this time that the baby wasn't planned. At all. "It was a huge shock at first," she said. "We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness."
So, How is She Feeling These Days?
Said Tyler on the podcast: "This pregnancy’s just been smooth. Everything’s been smooth, all the doctor’s appointments are great. Everything’s been A-OK this whole time."
They Really Didn't Know What too Expect
Added Tyler: "Especially after the miscarriage, we didn’t know exactly how that would affect anything. Would it affect anything? What happens? Do we have to take any extra precautions because of that during this one? Everything’s been going great."
We're So Glad to Hear It!
And howo is Nova reacting to the impending sibling? Says Tyler: "She’s so excited. It’s so funny. She constantly is like, ‘Oh, my baby! I can’t wait to see my baby.’ She keeps calling it her baby and I’m like, ‘You know what, if she wants to pretend it’s her own little live baby doll, go for it!’ If that makes the transition way easier from single child to a sibling, go for it."
This is So Precious:
More on Nova's reaction from Tyler: "She’s like, ‘She can hear me right?’ We’re like, ‘Yeah, she can hear you now.’ She’ll say stuff to [Cate’s] belly. It’s so funny. She’s so excited. She can’t wait."
How is the Marriage, Though?
On this same Teen Mom episode, Tyler made a comment about having been with Catelynn for so long and if he has any regrets. And his response wasn't exactly comforting to those who want to see these two stay together.
But Tyler Explained Himself on Twitter:
And Then He Vowed to Always Keep It Real:
Oh, and Here is a Photo of That 4D Ultrasound!
Hi there, Tezlee! We cannot wait to meet you.
