Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are expecting their second child, and it's definitely a time of mixed emotions. Fans of Teen Mom remember how hard it was for Cate and Ty to place their first daughter, Carly, up for adoption during MTV's 16 and Pregnant. The good news is that these two still have a deep connection to their kiddo — despite the fact that they aren't raising her.

It looks like Catelynn and Tyler are keeping Carly in their thoughts more than ever now that they're gearing up to raise a child, and Tyler took to the internets to post a series of emotional shout-outs to his daughter.

First, this dad-to-be hit Instagram with a throwback photo of himself kissing Carly's cheek along with the caption, "Can't wait to kiss that little face again, I mean come on, look at her! #Beautiful."

We know, tears everywhere. But if that's not intense enough, Ty also pulled at our heartstrings via Facebook, where he posted a Flipagram full of photos of Carly, himself, and Cate.


"A little thing I did for Carly...this song reminds me of our journey," Ty captioned the video. "When times get hard expressing the pain is the best medicine. Catelynn is the strongest woman I have ever met and an amazing mother for doing what she did for our daughter #BirthParentJourney #ILoveMyGirls."

So. Many. Feelings. It's clear that Tyler's love for his daughter is boundless, and we can't wait to see him raise his next child. He's going to be the most amazing dad ever!
