He shared the truth with fans
Everyone has moments of weakness, and the cast of Teen Mom is no different. The problem is that when they have weak moments or make mistakes there are millions of people around the world watching it all go down. Things in Tyler Baltierra’s life have been spiraling for weeks, ever since he was first accused of cheating on his wife, Catelynn Lowell.
Catelynn and Tyler’s relationship has made it past some serious hurdles, from adoption to Catelynn’s severe post-partum depression. Now that Catelynn is in treatment for her depression, it may not have seemed anything could get worse for the couple. That is, until rumors began to surface that Tyler was cheating on his longtime partner.
Now, Tyler is opening up about his moments of weakness as these rumors continue to swirl, and it’s clear that he’s in a difficult place because of them.
Although Catelynn Lowell is the one in treatment for her mental illness, Tyler Baltierra is going through his own difficulties as well. He’s currently acting as a single father raising their daughter Nova and battling his own demons. Among these are rumors that he’s been cheating on his wife and long-time partner. Now, he’s spilling the truth about his weaker moments.
Tyler has been open about his struggle with mental health for a while, and now he’s explaining to fans that he has difficult days as well. He posted a video of 3-year-old Nova asking for her mother. “Mommy is going to feel better,” she said. “I love my mommy. I want my mommy.”
Tyler added a caption to the video that read:
“This is literally the worst part of Cate not being here. I have to have this conversation with [Nova] almost every day. This is the stuff nobody understands. Crying in the dark has become part of the norm for me now it feels like.”
In the next video, Tyler teared up about having to explain Catelynn’s absence to his daughter. “Sometimes you don’t even know what to say to your children,” he shared. “I don’t ever cry in front of Nova or anything because I don’t want her to feel that. You have good days and then you have bad days. Today is just a bad day.”

“I’m posting this because I think it’s important for people to not feel alone in their struggles,” he captioned the video in a message to his fans. He went on:
“We’re humans, we’re allowed to have bad days, hard times & weak moments. Don’t be ashamed of what makes us humans special. You’re loved. You’re worthy.”
This update comes after Tyler was allegedly busted flirting and cuddling with another woman while Catelynn was in rehab.
