Enough is enough! It should be a great time for Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell, who welcomed their second daughter Nova Reign on Jan. 1. Instead, the Teen Mom stars have been forced to defend their decision to place their first daughter Carly, now 5, up for adoption in 2009. 

"So sick of the ignorance in the world. Just because you place a child for adoption doesn't mean your not allowed to have another #GetReal," Baltierra tweeted on Jan. 3. 

The couple, who have been together since middle school, welcomed Carly on MTV's 16 and Pregnant, and made the challenging decision to place their little one up for adoption. They remain a part of her life, as is documented on the spin-off series Teen Mom. They made the decision to raise their second daughter on their own.

Though they called off their July wedding after a stint on VH1's Couples Therapy, Baltierra presented Lowell with a second engagement ring for Christmas. The pair have been blissfully enjoying parenthood the second time around. 

"Having her here feels unreal but actually taking her home feels even more unreal. I actually get to be happy about leaving the hospital," Baltierra tweeted. "Crying happy tears instead of sad ones feels AMAZING! I don't have to be heartbroken this time #EmotionalDaddy #DontMindMe."
