The first series of Teen Mom is just about to wrap up, concluding the MTV journey for Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, Maci Bookout and Amber Portwood. Though Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra gave their daughter up for adoption, the pair are allegedly working to adopt Lowell's six-year-old brother.
According to RadarOnline Lowell is looking to adopt Nick becuase her mother, April, who was an alcoholic. Lowell told the website that her mother use to be a raging alcoholic and she'd often pass out at the table. 'I pretty much saw my mom drunk almost every day. I had to grow up really fast.'
This could explain why Lowell and Baltierra are the two more sensible couples on the show, despite making the major mistake of becoming teen parents.
April says that she is currentlys ober, but Lowell is waiting for her mom to slip back into drug and alcohol usage. 'If my mom derails again, I will step in and adopt my brother,' she said. Adding, 'I know that my mom loves her children, but when it comes to addict parents, sometimes they love their drug or their alcohol more than they love their children.'
Though the two would step up and take care of Nick, we learn at the end of Teen Mom that the 20-year-olds do have some regrets about giving up their daughter. Baltierra explained that it was bad role models in his life that also influenced his decision. "I would lie to you if I said I didn't regret it sometimes," Baltierra, 20, admits in the teaser clip above. "I was literally petrified about being the sh---y dad that my dad was."
The finale of Teen Mom airs August 28 at 10/9c on MTV.
