Nobody knows how to navigate 16 and pregnant / teen mom better world than Catelynn Lowell. The 29-year-old MTV star made his debut on 16 and pregnant in 2009 and has continued to star in the spinoff series Teen Mom OG.
ET’s Deidre Behar spoke to Catelynn and the new 16 and pregnant star Abygail Reade, and Catelynn gave Abygail a bit of wisdom on how to navigate the waters of reality TV while waiting and then welcoming a baby girl.
“I just wanted to say just from the little he shared so far to keep doing what he’s doing,” Catelynn tells the Nevada resident.
Catelynn added that the 17-year-old college student should stay in school, saying, “I think you have a great mindset of how you really want to focus on school and stuff because of course, as you probably know, that’s going to be very beneficial. for you and your daughter in the future. Break those statistics. Defeat those stereotypes of being a young mother. Finish school, do what you have to do so that you have what you need. “
Catelynn, who has stayed with her husband and father of their three children, Tyler Baltierra, was also impressed with Abygail’s boyfriend, Adrian, who appears to be a supportive partner for her.
“I think he’s an absolute goalie,” Catelynn says of Adrian. “He sounds very supportive of what you wanted to do from the beginning. I think it’s amazing because, like you said, a lot of teenage mothers don’t have the support of the father of their children.”
