After suffering a devastating miscarriage and going to rehab for suicidal thoughts, Teen Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell is now back home and focusing on her family and career. But, this past week, the 26-year-old posted a shocking photo of her 3-year-old daughter, Nova, and fans were quick to let the reality star know that she went too far.
According to Radar Online, Lowell posted a bizarre photo on Instagram of a topless Nova, with heart emojis covering the little girl’s nipples, and fans instantly slammed the troubled star who has been in and out of treatment for depression.
Lowell and her husband Tyler Baltierra captioned the photo of Nova enjoying a pre-Easter activity with an egg in her hand, “Someone’s excited to paint some eggs!”
Some followers weren’t happy with Lowell’s decision to show Nova without her shirt on, with some calling it “creepy” and “inappropriate.” But, others defended her by pointing out that she probably didn’t want her daughter to get her shirt dirty while painting.
This isn’t the first time Lowell has caused astonishment among followers with a pic of her daughter. Last fall, she posted a Snapchat of Nova showering naked.
Lowell doesn’t seem to be concerned with the backlash since she has yet to take the pic down on her social media.
It has been a tough few months for Lowell. Last year, she posted a desperate cry for help on Twitter when she wrote that she was going to a facility for depression.
“Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so, I’m going to treatment,” wrote Lowell.
Later she revealed that on November 17th she considered wrapping a belt around her neck or running her car into an electric pole.
Since then, she has been in and out of treatment to deal with her traumatic childhood and PTSD diagnosis.
Now that she is home, Nova is her main focus, and she has put on hold any plans of having another baby. Lowell and Baltierra do want to have a boy someday, but they don’t know how soon.
Lowell has also been sending out more positive vibes on Instagram, by writing that she is enough and full of sparkle and compassion.
Tyler Baltierra has supported his wife through this difficult time, and he has said that he is proud of Catelynn Lowell for being strong enough not to give up on her life.
New episodes of Teen Mom OG air Monday nights on MTV.
