Catelynn Lowell does not have her heart set on watching old episodes of 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom OG.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight‘s Deidre Behar, Lowell said that she and husband Tyler Baltierra don’t watch the MTV series featuring them because they “lived it.”
“We’ve done this show for so long that now we don’t watch it, no,” she told the outlet.
“We haven’t for a while. Just because it’s like, we lived it and we are so open and honest that it’s like, we’re not going to relive all of this stuff again.”
But Lowell, 29, said that one day she’d like to watch the 2009 16 and Pregnant episode showing her and Baltierra’s decision to place their eldest child, Carly, for adoption.
“When I am older and Carly is in her 20s or 30s, I’m blessed to be able to have a copy of my 16 and Pregnant episode that I can show her to … I mean, right there is like, I don’t even have to say too much,” she said.
“We can watch it. Then I can answer questions that she has because it was so 100 percent real.”
“I still haven’t been able to watch my 16 and Pregnant,” she added. “I can’t do it.”
Since they have placed Carly, now 11, for adoption, Lowell and Baltierra have married and have welcomed two more little girls: Vaeda, 2, and Nova, 6. Lowell is also currently pregnant with her fourth child, another daughter, the couple revealed just last month.
And while the choice to put Carly up for adoption was a tough one — the couple continues to see her grow up throughout the years.
Just last year, they marked her 11th birthday with tributes via social media. In addition, they have also reunited with Carly on multiple occasions — including in August of 2007 when the two saw their child for the first time in two years.
