It’s almost time! Catelynn Lowell is pregnant with her third baby and revealed that the newborn is on her way.

“Dilated to a 3 and having contractions!” the Teen Mom OG star, 26, wrote on Instagram over a black background on Wednesday, February 13. “This little girl wants to come!!”

She added in the caption: “Not contractions that take my breath away but she really wants to come soon! But I could also be like this for dayyysss so we shall see what she wants to do lol!”

In September 2018, Us Weekly broke the news that the reality star and her husband, Tyler Baltierra, are expecting with exclusive photos from Lowell’s maternity shoot. The pregnant star wore a maroon dress that hugged her baby bump, as well as a rainbow flower crown in honor of her “rainbow baby.”

“This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited,” the Conquering Chaos author told Us at the time. “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. 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 couple, who started dating in middle school and tied the knot in 2015, placed their daughter Carly, 9, for adoption in 2009. They welcomed Novalee, 4, in 2015, and announced that they were expecting another child on a January 2018 episode of Teen Mom OG. A month later, the couple revealed on the show that they had miscarried.

Now Lowell and Baltierra’s “rainbow baby” is on her way, and the reality stars aren’t the only one’s excited for the infant’s arrival.

“Nova’s reaction to feeling babygirl [sic] move is MY favorite!!!” Lowell wrote on Instagram in January. “She gets all giddy! She can’t wait to be a big sissy!”
