Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell makes surprise appearance on Family Reunion finale as BFF Maci Bookout breaks down in tears

TEEN Mom OG star Catelynn Lowell surprised the cast of Teen Mom Family Reunion, pushing BFF Maci Bookout to tears.

Catelynn was absent from the reunion special as it filmed days after she gave birth to daughter Rya.

Catelynn, 30, arrived while costars Maci, Ashley Jones, Jade Cline, Briana DeJesus, Leah Messer, and Amber Portwood were out to lunch.

The outing came on the final day of filming.

The MTV star popped into the restaurant the ladies were at, arriving to gasps and screams from the cast.

Maci immediately started crying while she and the rest of the cast got up to hug Catelynn.

The reality star quickly caught up on all that she missed, asking: "What's the tea?"

Catelynn's costars downloaded her on all the drama, as well as some lighthearted moments, with the group taking some time to reflect on Farrah's brief appearance on the show and more.

"I wish I could have been here the whole time," Catelynn admitted.

In a confessional, she told viewers: "I think this is really what the teen mom family needed. Just being able to get together and put everything aside."

Back at the table, Catelynn and the cast did a cheers with her shouting: "Woo, first drink after nine months!"


While Catelynn wasn't able to participate in many of the activities the cast enjoyed during the reunion, she did get to take part in one special activity.

The girls gathered around a fire after enjoying lunch together.

They each wrote down something they wanted to "let go of," writing it on a piece of paper and throwing it into the flames.

Each Teen Mom cast member wrote down a different thing, with Catelynn's moment packing an emotional punch.

The mom of four stood before the cast, announcing: "I want to let go of my mom anxiety. 

"I have tons and tons of mom anxiety about my kids."

She revealed that she often ruminates on worst case scenarios, and was ready to stop.

Before throwing her paper into the fire, she said: "What’s meant to be will be, good or bad, so I just want to let that go."

Fans have seen Catelynn's mental health struggles, including a battle with depression and anxiety, play out on the MTV series over the years.


Catelynn speaks openly about her mental health woes.

In 2021, while still pregnant with Rya, she shared an inspiring message about mental health.

She posted a note in solidarity with fans who were also battling depression.

She began on Instagram: "Isolation is the worst thing when anxious. I know it’s HARD to not do it but we have to FORCE ourselves to go outside, call a friend, go for a walk and talk. 

"I PROMISE reaching out will help you in so many ways #mentalhealthmatters #yougotthis."

Along with the message, she shared a picture that read "Don't let your anxiety convince you to isolate yourself."

Catelynn's message came just a few days after she teased her unborn daughter's name in a post.

Catelynn shared a snap of a recent ultrasound captioned: "Sooo I think we know her name. It's a girl."

The ultrasound also noted she was due in early September, meaning she was barely three months along.

The mom-to-be again also posted a video of new baby clothes and bedding from the company Goosebumps.

In addition to Nova and Vaeda the star and her husband, Tyler Baltierra, have an 11-year-old daughter, Carly, whom they placed for adoption.
