Teen Mom star Tyler Baltierra has hit back at critics following the birth of his and co-star Catelynn Lowell's baby daughter.

Tyler and Catelynn were inundated with a slew of congratulatory messages after they welcomed baby Nova Reign on 1 January – but among the well wishes were a few nasty comments concerning the adoption of their first child.

Viewers of 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom will know that Tyler and Catelynn were just 16 when daughter Carly was born and that they chose to have her adopted as they thought it was in her first interests.

After receiving comments regarding the adoption, a frustrated Tyler tweeted: "So sick of the ignorance in the world. Just because you place a child for adoption doesn't mean your not allowed to have another #GetReal."

Catelynn recently defend her second pregnancy, saying: "We couldn't give Carly the future she deserved and so we chose adoption. We stand behind our decision.

"But I'm not 16 any more. We're ready for a baby."

The long-time couple, both 22, started their New Year by welcoming baby Nova Reign and haven't stopped gushing about her ever since.

Tyler tweeted on 2 January: "I'm literally captivated by her beauty... the most perfect little girl and we created her @CatelynnLowell! #ProductOfTrueLove #ProudDaddy."

Meanwhile, proud mum Catelynn said: "You are already my world... I love you so much you have already changed me in so many ways... mommy and daddy love you."

Tyler did, however, tell fans he was thinking of Carly as he awaited the birth of Nova.

Alongside a throwback picture of himself holding newborn Carly, he said: "This is surreal, I'm freakin out a little lol but can't wait to meet my little angel! Thinking a lot about Carly right now. It's bringing me back. Even though I know this time I will actually be taking her home. I love my girls! #CantWait #Nervous #Excited #Scared #Happy."
