When Catelynn was “16 and Pregnant,” the then-teen and her longtime love Tyler made the difficult choice to outline an adoption plan for their little girl on the way. Even though it’s been more than five years since they maturely reached this decision for Carly, watching footage from those days in 2009 still makes the couple and their mothers extremely — and understandably — emotional.
Before “Teen Mom” returns next month, all of the girls will sit down with their loved ones to relive some of their memorable MTV moments during four separate “Getting to Know” specials — airing this Saturday (February 21). And in the sneak peek from Catelynn’s hour-long program, below, reliving the birth and eventual hand-off to Carly’s legal parents Brandon and Theresa makes everyone in the room teary-eyed.
“Poor Mom, do you need some Kleenex?” Cate asks her mom April as soon as home video plays from the delivery room.
Meanwhile, as the heart-wrenching clip plays, Tyler tells the group how they planned the birth.
“I was gonna cover Cate’s ears so she couldn’t hear the baby cry,” he reveals. “I was gonna block her face so she couldn’t see anything — we thought it was going to be too hard.”
And while reliving the experience impacts everyone in different ways, it makes April second guess her behavior.
Watch April’s change of heart and touching hug with her daughter below, then catch all of the “Getting to Know” specials airing Saturday night beginning at 8p/5e. And be sure to stay tuned to MTV News for more updates on the upcoming “TMOG” season!
