MTV Pregnant "Teen Mom OG" star Catelynn Baltierra found out if they were having a boy or a girl.
Pregnant Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Baltierra found out if they were having a boy or a girl. The couple has been honest about wanting to have a boy, with Tyler previously expressing disappointment when he initially found out his third child was going to be a girl.The MTV stars have three biological daughters, though they placed their first daughter, Carly, for adoption when they were on 16 and Pregnant.
The duo held an intimate gender reveal with their family, with their mothers–April Brockmiller and Kim Forbes Passalacqua–holding a balloon with confetti. When they popped the balloon, the room erupted with pink confetti, signaling the couple is, indeed, going to have a third baby girl in their family. As referenced by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup, Catelynn and Tyler likely knew the baby’s gender before the reveal because neither of them seemed surprised by the news. They shared the video on February 23, the day after they confirmed the pregnancy.
Catelynn, 28, confirmed the baby’s gender during an interview with Celebuzz. “We have found out that we are going to be having a… drumroll please… another girl!” she said.
According to the Michigan resident, her husband wasn’t upset about being a four-time girl dad. “His reaction was, ‘Well I guess I’m not gonna get a boy,” she told the publication. “All in all we are just excited to be completing our family regardless of the gender.”Catelynn & Tyler Are Looking Forward to Having a Grandson

After this baby, Catelynn and Tyler don’t plan on getting pregnant again. While their dreams of having a son might have come to an end, they haven’t completely given up hope. Catelynn told Celebuzz they’re looking forward to one of their daughters having a baby boy one day.
“While we wanted a boy since this is our last, as long as she’s healthy though that really all that matters,” she said. “This is our last and final but we know one day we will have a grandson and adore him!”Some Viewers Chided Tyler & Catelynn View this post on Instagram

Since the couple has been transparent about wanting to be the parents of a baby boy, some Teen Mom OG viewers on the Teen Mom subreddit page accused them of not being grateful for the healthy children they already have.
“My husband and I cant have kids, we’ve gone through years of infertility and done cycles of IVF with no results,” one person wrote. “Our only hope of being parents is through adoption. If these assholes complain for one singular second that this healthy baby is a girl.”
“I don’t want to hear it. If you will be disappointed in any way have some willpower and wait until they are born,” another added. “Absolutely no one feels bad for you when you don’t get the gender you want. You want a healthy baby. That’s the goal.”
Even though Catelynn said Tyler wasn’t “disappointed,” another fan suspected he might have been hiding his true feelings. “Oh to be a fly on the wall in their house to watch Tyler’s b**** fit since he isn’t getting his way again,” they said.

For the first time, America's top psychologists condemn anti-trans conversion therapy — which is still legal in most states

- The American Psychological Association spoke out against trans conversion therapy on March 3.
- Studies show conversion therapy can make trans youth more depressed, anxious, and suicidal.
- While most medical guidelines advise against it, the practice remains legal in over half the US.

The American Psychological Association (APA) condemned anti-trans conversion therapy on March 3, calling the practice "harmful."
While the APA has denounced sexuality conversion therapy since 1997, this is the first time the organization has publicly condemned trans-specific conversion therapy.
LGBTQ+ conversion therapy – which involves emotionally and physically abusive tactics to make a transgender or queer person closet themselves – has long been condemned as an ineffective and dangerous practice based on pseudoscience.
"There is a growing body of research that shows that transgender or nonbinary gender identities are normal variations in human expression of gender," APA President Jennifer F. Kelly said in a statement. "Attempts to force people to conform with rigid gender identities can be harmful to their mental health and well-being."
At least 10% of all LGBTQ+ youth report going through conversion therapy according to The Trevor Project, one of the largest LGBTQ+ mental health organizations in the country.
Past studies have linked conversion therapy to depression, anxiety, and suicidal ideations in queer and trans youth.
According to a report by the Trevor Project in the American Journal of Public Health, LGBTQ+ youth who underwent conversion therapy were twice as likely to attempt suicide at some point in their life than those who have not.
While most medical best practice guidelines underscore the danger in using conversion therapy on queer and trans youth, 26 states have no laws banning or regulating the practice on minors.
The APA's announcement comes amid a wave of anti-trans legislation proposed by lawmakers in several states.
"Psychologists are encouraged to validate, normalize, and assist others in understanding the complex interactions [among] sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression, keeping cultural differences in mind," the APA statement reads.
