Fans of “Teen Mom OG” were thrilled last month when stars Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra confirmed they were expecting baby number three on the reality series.
Lowell surprised her husband with the big news by putting their 3-year-old daughter in an “I’m going to be a big sister” shirt.
The father was elated by the pregnancy, but rumors quickly started to swirl when they didn’t open up about the pregnancy on social media.
Lowell also revealed that she checked into rehab back in November due to suicidal thoughts.
And on Monday night’s episode of the reality series, the couple confirmed the worst — the mom-to-be had a miscarriage.
According to Ok! Magazine, Baltierra opened up about the heartbreaking moment to one of the show’s producers. He said:
“It was very traumatic. You see her shaking and she got blood everywhere, you don’t know what to do. She kind of cleaned herself up and we figured what was going on. We realized what was going on.”
He said the two just “sat in the bed and cried” after the loss, and that he had really been looking forward to becoming a father again.
A short time later, Lowell decided to check herself into rehab for 30 days because she was having suicidal thoughts. She told her mother-in-law:
“I contemplated every single way that I could kill myself today.”
Baltierra tweeted out in support of his wife after the episode. He said the painful moment was incredibly hard to watch:
As hard as it is to watch this…I’m just so proud of my wife for being strong enough to not give up on her life. She comes home in 5 days & I can’t wait to hold her in my arms again & just show her without words, what safety, security, & unconditional love feels like https://t.co/tmwkbxApTM

That baby may have not been fully grown in the womb…but it was fully grown in our hearts. For every parent out there who has lost a baby…it is not your fault & it is more than acceptable & understandable to mourn the loss of that baby & take your time to grieve #ParentStrong

Lowell is currently completing a six-week program to work through her mental struggles, according to E! News.
The mom has yet to speak out publicly about the heartbreaking loss.
