“I think this baby is gonna come soon,” the MTV personality, 26, posted on Instagram in rainbow text on Tuesday, February 5.
Lowell has been keeping fans updated throughout her pregnancy — whether she’s announcing how many weeks along she is or when her baby appointments are — with colorful Instagram posts. That’s because her and Tyler Baltierra’s third child will be their “rainbow baby.” The couple suffered a devastating miscarriage in a January 2018 Teen Mom OG episode and Lowell entered treatment for postpartum depression.
“This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited,” Lowell said when Us Weekly exclusively broke the couple’s news in September 2018. “It was a huge shock at first. We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness.”
She added: “We were going to wait a really long time. We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.”
The little one will join older sister Novalee, 5. Baltierra, 27, and Lowell’s eldest daughter, Carly, 9, was placed for adoption in 2009.
The same day that the reality star teased her third baby’s arrival, Lowell revealed that she will be honoring the child she miscarried with a sweet keepsake at home. The Conquering Chaos author showed the “absolutely beautiful and breathtaking” statuette off on Instagram.
“The baby with the angel wings is the baby we lost,” she explained. “The wings are red because that would of [sic] been its birthstone color….. The rainbow rhinestones going on the belly represent me carrying our rainbow baby.”
