Catelynn has had two more children since with her now-husband Tyler Baltierra and previously said she remains in regular contact with Carly, now 11.
The MTV star said she has never seen the 2009 episode where she and Tyler decide to go for adoption in the first season of 16 & Pregnant.
She said she'd like to watch it with Carly when the child is older.
"When I am older and Carly is in her 20s or 30s, I'm blessed to be able to have a copy of my 16 and Pregnant episode that I can show her to," she told ET Online.
Catelynn went on: "I mean, right there is like, I don't even have to say too much. We can watch it.
"Then I can answer questions that she has because it was so 100 percent real."
Carly has gone on to have a private life with her adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa Davis.
Last month, the Teen Mom star admitted she and Tyler haven't seen Carly in more than a year because of the Covid pandemic.
She told In Touch Weekly: "[She and Tyler] didn’t see [Carly] [in 2020] at all because of the pandemic.
"Like nobody was, you know, flying anywhere, going anywhere. So yeah. That never happened. That didn’t happen this year."
However, they have been able to stay in contact through technology as the reality TV star explained: "We’ve done a FaceTime, like Novalee and [Carly] FaceTimed.
"But yeah, like visit-wise, it’s just kind of up in the air until things calm down or people are vaccinated."
It comes just weeks after she and Tyler said that they don't regret putting her up for adoption.
Catelynn told E! News: "I think sometimes we think about how weird it would be to have an 11-year-old right now.
"That would be crazy. We know that we made the right decision. We don't ever second guess that decision at all."
She added of how the adoption impacted her relationship with her husband, Tyler, 29: "Honestly, we both really do agree that if we would have parented her at the age of 17 – with everything that we went through as fiancés, as boyfriend and girlfriend, as married people together – we don't really think honestly that we would be together."
She added: "If you throw a child in the mix, mental health stuff, addiction stuff, relationship stuff, it makes it 20 times harder so we never regret that decision at all because we just look at what she has now and we know we did the right thing."
Catelynn and Tyler are parents to daughters Novalee, six, and Vaeda, one.
The reality star is currently pregnant and expecting a baby girl with Tyler in September after suffering two miscarriages.
