Reported on The Hollywood Gossip, “16 and Pregnant” stars Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell have decided to parent their second child, born January 1. The couple, who has been together since middle school, placed their first child, Carly, for adoption in 2009.

Honoring the adoptive parents wishes, pictures of little Carly have not been shared with the media. Now a few years older, the couple has made the decision to parent their daughter, Nova Reign. Critics are coming out of crevices and attacking the couple for this decision online. But Ty and Cate are thrilled with their decision and welcome the prospect of parenting.

The planned July wedding was cancelled, but Ty and Cate are still engaged to be married.
