Out of all of the Teen Mom cast members, none of them are still with the person they were dating during their 16 and Pregnant debut… except for Catelynn Lowell.
Is all of that about to change?
Catelynn and her husband Tyler Baltierra have been through immense difficulties together, and even though they’ve had some very rough spots, it has only seemed to bring them closer together. But fans have often theorized that their relationship couldn’t last, and now Catelynn is dropping a bombshell about spending time away from Tyler.
Of the entire cast, they’re the only couple who opted to put their first child up for adoption. This decision was motivated largely by their financial limitations, because they could have never known how much money they would make from the show. Many fans have pointed out that it must be difficult for Catelynn and Tyler to know that they could have financially supported their first child, Carly, after all.
But that’s not the only difficulty of their relationship. On top of struggling with substance-dependent parents, the two have also each had their own hardships with mental illnesses. Tyler has revealed that he attempted suicide at a very young age, and Catelynn also admitted to struggling with suicidal ideation, and has sought treatment for it.
Even one of these factors could put a serious strain on a relationship, so it’s no wonder that things have been somewhat rocky between these two from the very beginning. In fact, the two have recently even confirmed that they’ve been separated in the past.
They insist that the time apart improved their relationship, but could a second separation be a sign that it didn’t work as well as they hoped?
Catelynn Lowell took to Instagram to share the news.
In a now-deleted post, she wrote, “From the time you met us, it’s always been Catelynn and Tyler. We’ve been grouped as a pair, most likely due to the fact that we met in middle school, you met us on Sixteen and Pregnant, followed us to Teen Mom, and are just used to seeing our story together.”
