Tyler Baltierra: I Think I Love Catelynn Lowell Again!
It’s been a very eventful 2019 for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra so far!
2018 was pretty busy too, and 2017 was honestly a nightmare.
Teen Mom fans will remember that in 2017, Catelynn was still struggling with depression, but that towards the end of the year, she and Tyler decided it was a good time to try for another baby.
She got pregnant quickly, but then she suffered a miscarriage.
It was extremely difficult for them, which is definitely understandable. Catelynn struggled so much that she even considered suicide.
Thankfully she was able to reach out for help, and she went off to Arizona for six weeks in a treatment center.
She got back around the beginning of 2018, but quickly returned to Arizona for six more weeks of treatment.
And that’s when things really started falling apart.
We don’t need to rehash everything — if you’re checking up on these two, then you probably know how bad things were last year.
Tyler started feeling like Catelynn wasn’t supporting him or caring for him enough, and after she refused to go to counseling with him or to do the things his own therapist suggested, he’d had enough.
We saw a ton of this last season on Teen Mom OG, and it really was a complete and utter mess.
In several scenes, Tyler very obviously had one foot out the door, and we even saw him say that he wished he was able to sleep with other women.
But there was one thing that made all of this extra difficult.
And that was the fact that Catelynn was pregnant.
Yep, even though they swore they’d been doing everything in their power to prevent a pregnancy, it still happened, and it put them in a very awkward position.
He insisted that it didn’t change anything, that he still wanted the separation, and they did live apart for a while.
But there’s no denying that it sort of put a hamper on any divorce plans he may have been considering.
The separation wrapped up sometime within the past few months as Catelynn neared the end of her pregnancy, and they started acting super in love on social media again.
And so 2019 began for the Baltierras with lots of joy — or at least that’s what they said on Instagram.
All right, so are we all caught up now?
Good, because last week they had their baby!
On February 21st, Catelynn gave birth to a healthy little girl they named Vaeda, and they really do seem like they’re loving their new status as a family of four.
We don’t have any photos of their new addition yet, except one of the side of her head, but it’s safe to assume that she’s absolutely adorable.
How much gushing Catelynn and Tyler have been doing lately!
Earlier this week, Cate made a post on Instagram to say that “Nursing is the best feeling in the world.”
“It’s such an amazing bonding experience,” she continued. “Love our little munchker butt.”
Lots of people have weird little nicknames for their kids, so let’s just just slide right over “munchker butt” and get to the comments on her post, OK?
It looks like she turned on some setting so that the only people who could comment were the people she follows, so nobody has to weed through to find the good stuff.
Amber Portwood, who’s always been close to Cate, wrote “Awe babe, so amazing, I love you momma.”
And that’s very sweet, but then Tyler really just went there.
“You’re just amazing Babe,” he began his lengthy comment. “Watching you carry, nurture, feed & love Vaeda the way you do brings more than tears of joy for this doting father.”
“It brings such an immense deep profound peace that I can’t really describe with words … but I know how it feels & it feels like euphoric love in the most purest way.”
He finished with “I love you so much & you’re such an amazing mother!”
That’s miles better than the way he was talking about her last year, huh?
Of course, there’s always the chance that he’s just as exasperated with her as ever, and he’s just trying to pretend to be the happy, doting husband he seems to be here.
But just this once, let’s go ahead and hope for the best.
