Tyler Baltierra: I Deserve Better Than Catelynn Lowell!

Remember when Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra used to kind of be the #RelationshipGoals of Teen Mom OG?

Everyone always thought they were so cute together, and so brave and selfless for placing their daughter for adoption to save her from their families.

And it's true, they were.

But that's been several years ago now, and these days ... well, things are different.

And as the days go by, it seems more and more likely that their relationship just won't last.

1. Happier Times

Catelynn and Tyler have been together forever. Almost literally.

2. Middle School Sweethearts

They started dating when they were just 12 years old, after Tyler started talking to her because, as he once revealed, she had "bigger tits than any other girl in the 7th grade."

3. Not So Cute

Things got a little weirder a little while after that, when Tyler's father began dating Catelynn's mother. They eventually got married, making Catelynn and Tyler step siblings.

4. Making It Work

But they kept on trucking along together, up until she got pregnant.

5. So Sad

Catelynn lowell and tyler baltierra picture
We don't have to go into too much detail with this, because we all remember these heartbreaking details: they decided to place their baby for adoption because their home lives were too unstable and they wanted better for their child.

6. Doing Well?

After that, things were tough in many ways, and they nearly broke up more than once. But somehow, some way, they stayed together through the years, and eventually she became pregnant again.

Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra Reveal Baby Gender: We’re Shocked!

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are in shock.

First, that they are having a baby at all.

The Teen Mom stars suffered through a miscarriage very early in 2018 and admitted last month that they weren't trying for a baby when Catelynn learned she was pregnant.

Nevertheless, the child is due in March. How exciting, right?

Catelynn and Tyler are also in shock over the gender of this impending bundle of joy, revealing the key piece of information to Us Weekly on October 17, 2018.

Will it be a boy or a girl? A brother or a sister for little Nova?

Scroll down to find out!

1. These Two Have Been Through A LOT to Get Here

Cate and tyler photo
Heck, on a recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Tyler said he was miserable in his marriage and almost dared Catelynn to file for divorce.

2. For What Reason?

Tyler and catelynn baltierra
Tyler said on air, and many times in the past, that he had grown frustrated with focus constantly being on Catelynn and her mental illness struggle. He loves her. He worries about her. But he also has needs and issues that require attention.

3. That Was Then, However

After attending couples therapy and talking openly about the obstacles in their marriage, Tyler and Catelynn have managed to push through the big ones and remain together, seemingly happier than ever.

4. And Then the Bombshell Dropped!

"We are expecting our rainbow baby. This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited," Catelynn told Us Weekly a few weeks back, using the name given to a baby after its mother suffers a miscarriage. (Catelynn went through this trauma in January, as documented on the previous season of Teen Mom OG.)

5. SURPRISE!

“It was a huge shock at first," Catelynn admitted in this same interview. "We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness.�

6. An Unexpected Miracle

Cradling that bump
Concluded Catelynn upon revealing the news to the world: "We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected."

Tyler Baltierra: I’m Simply "Miserable" in My Marriage

Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell are currently in a great place.

Like, a REALLY great place:

The couple is expecting a baby!

But the Teen Mom OG stars had to overcome many obstacles to get here, most notably Catelynn's struggle with her mental health and related trips to rehab.

On the October 15 episode of this MTV hit, Tyler seemed to hit rock bottom.

He opened way up about how he viewed his marriage and his romance, confessing some difficult feelings to his friends and to his wife.

Scroll down for a look at what Tyler once said about his relationship... in order to fully appreciate where it is now.

1. To Reiterate: All is Good Now!

Cate and tyler photo
Tyler and Catelynn announced their unexpected pregnancy in mid-September. They could not be more excited to welcome the little boy or girl into their world in March.

2. That is Now. What About Then?

After the taping
This episode of Teen Mom OG was taped many months ago. It centered on the couple sitting down for an appearance on Dr. Oz, before which Catelynn spoke to Dr. Mike Dow.

3. And What Did This Doctor Say?

A few words from tyler
He told the Catelynn that he was proud of her for opening up about her mental health issues to help eliminate the stigma against people who are suffering from similar problems. From there, Lowell admitted she was having trouble staying away from people who were NOT understanding her situation.

4. The Trolls are Everywhere

Catelynn at the salon
"I cant even go on Twitter right now," she said. "People are ruthless, they think that I'm just running away from my problems or not wanting to be a mom. I'm not running away from my problems, I was fixing my problems and trying to get better so I could be a better mom."

5. Baltierra Weighs In...

Tyler in therapy
Tyler told his wife - to her face - that he wanted her to take better stock of the influence her time in rehab took on him. He suggested she watch past Teen Mom OG episodes in order to see the toll her depression has had on their marriage.

6. The Bombshell Drops

Tyler then got brutally candid, saying on air: "I’m gonna be really very honest. I feel like I’m not too happy right now. I’m identifying that I feel pretty miserable." He said this to his friends.

Teen Mom OG Recap: The Breakdown of Bristol Palin

Teen Mom OG has gone all in on Bristol Palin this season.

For better or worse.

Despite a pretty severe drop in the ratings for the first few episodes, the show has dedicated a bulk of its time to Bristol's failing marriage.

She and Dakota Meyer continue to clash over the latter's PTSD and the effect it has on the couple's relationship.

Things have turned very ugly between the now-former spouses.

What prompted Palin to break down into a puddle of tears on the latest Teen Mom OG installment?

Scroll down for a recap of storylines and events...

1. Tiime Apart

Now what bristol
We opened this week with Palin taking off for Los Angeles in order to support son Tripp's appearance on Dancing with the Stars: Juniors. This enabled her and Dakota to get a break after last week's very difficult talks and admissions.

2. Now What, Though?

Dakota meyer smiles
Meyer was anxious to get the divorce process over with, however, so he called up his estranged spouse. And Palin immediately became combative, replying: “I know my lawyer sent you something the other day about, you know, please don’t touch my stuff. As soon as I find a new house, I’m be gone like the wind."

3. I'd Like Some Props!

Dakota meyer explains
Bristol continued on this call, giving herself a lot of credit for some reason by adding: "There’s no need for us to fight. There’s no need for us to have bad blood between us. It’s all gonna be good. I’ll be there. I’m a great mom. I’ll continue to be a great mom.�

4. Frustration Grows

Theres sarah
"Do you see what I have to deal with on the back side of it? It's around and around, it's way off topic," Dakota told producers after the call. "Why do the attorneys have to come into it? I have no doubt that her mom is sitting right next to her, stoking that fire. It's unfortunate that a communication about the children has to be this exhausting."

5. Don't Ya Know?!?

Yup its sarah palin
Sarah Palin was in Los Angeles with her daughter, offering advice like only she can. "Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn," Sarah told her child. According to the former Vice Presidential candidate, the lesson here had something to do with "possessions and materialism" and how they don't "amount to a hill of beans."

6. Life is Suddenly Amazing!

Dakota meyer on teen mom
Back in Austin, Texas, Dakota said the two weeks without Brisol around made him the "happiest that I've ever been since 2015." He added it felt "like what someone would feel like after they get out of a life sentence prison: incredible." LOL/OUCH!

Catelynn Lowell: My Kid Needs Me Too Much!

OK, so Catelynn Lowell spent a good long while in rehab a while back.

We all remember how this went down, but just in case your memory is a little fuzzy, let's do a quick little recap.

Catelynn Lowell with Nova

Last fall, she and Tyler Baltierra decided it was time to have another child, and she got pregnant pretty fast after they made that decision.

Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage.

And it was very, very hard on her.

She began contemplating suicide, but before acting on anything, she told her family, and they helped her check into a treatment center in Arizona.

Cate Lowell Photo

She spent about six weeks there, missing Thanksgiving and Christmas, then came home.

But as we saw last season on Teen Mom OG, she really wasn't feeling much better.

In one scene, Catelynn explained to Tyler that she was still very depressed and anxious, and that she felt like she needed to go back to Arizona.

The choice caused a bit of strain on their marriage, from what was shown on Teen Mom.

Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell at the VMAs

He tried to convince her to do some therapy and stay at home instead, but she refused to do that.

Instead, she dropped their daughter, Nova, off at daycare without telling her that she'd be gone again, then left.

After six more weeks, she came home, and that's a bit of what we'll see in the next episode.

In the beginning of this new sneak peek, Catelynn explains in a voiceover that she's only been home for a few days at this point.

"It's been an adjustment," she admits, "but I really appreciate Tyler taking care of everything while I was gone."

Then we see Catelynn and Tyler playing with Nova, and he asks Cate if anything's different now that she's home.

"She won't leave me alone," Catelynn says, referring to Nova.

It's not the greatest thing to say, especially considering that so many fans thought she seemed too detached with her kid in earlier episodes.

A Smile for Catelynn

Tyler doesn't seem to love the comment either.

"Mom comes back and it's like 'Dad who? That guy who has all the stupid rules?'" he says.

"'Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom," Catelynn mocks.

Yeah, it's really not sounding so good.

Catelynn Lowell Instagram Selfie

Later, Catelynn visits with a friend named Hayley who kicks off their chat by asking her how she's been. 

She reveals that she has been a bit anxious, but that she feels it's normal in life to feel a little anxiety from time to time.

Hayley tells her that she seems happier than ever, and she agrees, which is nice.

She also tells Catelynn that she's probably more in love with Tyler than ever, after how much he's supported her.

Tyler and Catelynn Post-Therapy

"Oh my god, yeah," she agrees. "As a husband and wife, man, you say it in your vows, through sickness and in health, for richer or poorer."

"It's like, you gotta stand by each other, and he totally did."

Hayley pumps Tyler up even more -- he's not even there, by the way.

"Yeah, he's awesome," Cate replies.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra Snuggles

Except she doesn't sound super convinced.

We know that Catelynn and Tyler went through some things after she came back from rehab.

He's said that he was "repulsed" by her behavior while she was in treatment, and that couldn't have been easy for her to hear.

We imagine that as the season goes on, we'll see more of their issues, but so far ...

Catelynn Lowell at MTV VMAs

It's honestly looking kind of bad.

And, judging by the comments left when MTV shared this sneak peek on Facebook, most Teen Mom fans are just completely over Catelynn in general.

"She is a horrible human," one person wrote. "To complain how your daughter is showering you with attention because you left her for months on end, how pathetic."

And that was the top comment, so ...

Cate Lowell Picture

Another commenter asked "How many times does Tyler have to stand by you before you act on his feelings instead of it being all about you?"

One person said that they were "glaring at how Nova noticed her mom mocking her desperate need for attention and validation."

Things got especially savage when someone else said that "I think she's just a failure of a mother and uses her illnesses as a way to escape to rehab."

The comments go on and on and on like that, about what an awful mother she is and how Tyler needs to leave her.

Lots of people also seem concerned that she's expecting another child now, since they think she's so cold with Nova already.

Honestly, it's a real bad time to be Catelynn Lowell right now.

Catelynn Lowell: SLAMMED By Fans For "Selfish" and "Unsafe" Behavior

Catelynn Lowell has endured a number of hardships and setbacks in recent years, and the honesty with which she's addressed these struggles has made her a favorite amongst Teen Mom OG viewers.

But the show documents every part of its stars' lives, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before fans began to see aspects of Catelynn's character that they didn't find quite so endearing.

Many feel that the current season of Teen Mom OG has portrayed Catelynn in an unflattering light.

Some have even accused of her endangering her unborn baby.

Here's what viewers have to say about the new and not-so-improved Catelynn Lowell:

 

1. Better Days

Catelynn on season 8
For years, Lowell was regarded as one of the most down-to-earth and relatable stars of the Teen Mom franchise.

2. Hard Times

Tyler and catelynn baltierra
Fans rooted for her as she endured mental health issues, a tragic miscarriage, and other hardships that put her marriage and her psyche to the test.

3. The Baltierra Bond

Tyler baltierra and catelynn lowell at the vmas
Catelynn and Tyler have endured difficulties that would have driven any young couple to the brink of divorce, but they've stuck by one another throughout. Or have they?

4. An Uneven Partnership

Tyler baltierra and catelynn
Part of the reason Catelynn is receiving so much blowback this season is that viewers believe she's failing to properly support Tyler the way he's supported her in the past.

5. The Low Point

Catelynn baltierra
In the past, Tyler happily assumed the majority of the parental responsibilities while Catelynn checked in for extended stays at in-patient treatment facilities on two separate occasions.

6. Failing Her Family?

Now, some fans feel that Catelynn is not only neglecting her husband's needs as he attends to his own mental health issues, she's also failing to keep up with her own treatment.

Teen Mom OG Recap: I Want a Divorce!!!

A week after Bristol Palin was welcomed to the Teen Mom OG family on last Monday's premiere, the famous mother of three decided to put an end to her own family.

As it is currently constructed, that is.

On an emotional follow-up episode, viewers received an up close and personal glimpse at the problems that plagued Bristol and husband Dakota Meyer to such an extent that they filed for divorce.

These problems were largely related to Meyer's PTSD, but they ran deeper and were more pervasive than this single (major) issue.

Scroll down for a recap of the latest Teen Mom OG installment, which centered on Palin and Meyer decided to divorce on national television...

1. Are You Okay?

Are you okay
Bristol asked Meyer if he was in an okay state to discuss their marital issues, referencing the demons he still battles on a daily basis due to losing so many friends in combat as a Marine, before she delved into the reasons why she wants a divorce.

2. I'm Married, But I Feel So Alone

Im married but i feel so alone
“I was a single mom for a long time but being married, I’m more lonely now than I’ve ever been,� Palin explained to MTV producer Kerthy. “And I know that he’s probably more lonely now than he’s ever been. I think that we don’t know how to, like, coexist together at all.�

3. A Painful Admission

A painful admission
Meyer was the only surviving member of his platoon during the war in Afghanistan, an unfathomable situation to anyone watching. He acknowledges that he can't move on and that this has impacted everyone around him, saying on air: "It’s been tough. Ninety-nine percent of our problems in this family, in our marriage, is my anxiety and my PTSD whether you want to believe or justify it or not."

4. We're Better Apart

Better apart
“I fully take responsibility of becoming cold. And I am sorry. I’m sorry that I am that way, I don’t think you deserve to have a wife that’s that way and I want you to have a sense of peace,� Bristol said to Meyer. “I do feel like we are better people when we’re not together.�

5. Another Personal Failure

Another personal failure
Turning to the producer sitting with them, Kerthy, Meyer opened up and was honest about how this all made him feel: “Obviously, you know, Bristol doesn’t want to be together anymore. For me, I just get the same feeling that I do with my teammates, that I failed again and that I’m helpless again.�

6. This is NOT on You

This is not on you
No, Bristol tried to tell Dakota, fully aware of how personally he takes things and all he has been though. "You’re not a failure, you’re not a failure at all," she repeated.

Teen Mom OG Recap: Welcome to the Dysfunctional Family!

They are officially on board.

Teen Mom OG kicked off Season 8 on Monday, October 1 with an intense 90-minute episode that introduced a pair of new faces to the franchse:

  1. Bristol Palin, the daughter of former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
  2. Cheyenne Floyd, a former cast member on MTV's The Challenge who has a daughter with another Season 8 addition, Cory Wharton.

What were this pair up to on the opening installment?

We learned just how complicated of a relationship Floyd and Wharton find themselves in, while we also got a pretty good idea of why Bristol and Dakota Meyer recent filed for divorce.

Scroll down for a recap of all the events from an interesting and emotional Season 8 premiere...

1. Her Life Isn't Perfect

Bristol arrives
This was a message Bristol said she wanted to send, although it's not clear why anyone would think that a 27-year woman with three kids by two men - with a famously polarizing mother - would be living a perfect life. Regardless, the premiere gave us a look look at the difficulties in her marriage.

2. Yup, It's Sarah Palin

Yup its sarah palin
We're just saying. The woman who came close to being the second most powerful person on Earth made a cameo early in the premiere.

3. Worlds Apart

Bristol and dakota
While Bristol and Meyer live together in Austin, Bristol was off in Arizona with her mom celebrating her sister Piper's bachelorette party to opem the premiere, while Dakota took the kids to see his parents in Kentucky. Palin told the camera that her husband's PTSD has been "hard on our marriage."

4. PTSD?

Ptsd
Yes. Meyer received the Medal of Honor after 2009's Battle of Ganjgal, where he witnessed the deaths of his entire team. He's been battling those demons and scars ever since.

5. What are Things Like for This Veteran?

Bristol palin with dakota meyer
Speaking with his dad and the show's producers, Meyer talked about joining the Marines. "When I joined, it was 110% that you will be going to war soon," he said on air. "Joining, I could have never knew what I was getting into. You can say, 'Yeah, I'm ready to get shot at,' but you're talking at a 17 year old kid."

6. More from Dakota:

More from dakota
"We got in a big gunfight and everybody with me is dead," he continued. "When I first came home, train wreck is not even, that's an understatement. Anxiety got me real bad." Meyer added that his children are the "reason I get up every day," saying they "add to the quality of life, they're everything."

Catelynn Lowell: See the Adorable Moment She Tells Her Daughter She’s Pregnant!

By now, you've surely heard the big Teen Mom OG news, right?

And no, we're not talking about the additions of Cheyenne Floyd and Bristol Palin to the cast.

We're talking, of course, about Catelynn Lowell's pregnancy!

Yep, after having a miscarriage last year that was so traumatizing it caused her to contemplate suicide, Catelynn is pregnant with what she's been calling her "rainbow baby."

She and husband Tyler Baltierra seem very, very excited about adding another member to their family, and it's been pretty cute to see.

So far, we know that the baby is due on March 6th, and although there's been no official gender reveals, reports claim that they're having another girl.

And thanks to this adorable new Teen Mom OG sneak peek, we know that their daughter Nova is pumped about being a big sister!

The clip starts off with Catelynn and Nova making cupcakes while Tyler sits at the table nearby.

Cate tells Nova that some of their cupcakes are going to be pink and others are going to be blue, then asks her if she knows why they're making them that way.

Nova honestly just seems psyched about cupcakes in general, so Catelynn asks her if she knows why they're having a party the next day.

"Mommy has a baby in her belly," she explains to her, "and tomorrow the party is because we're going to find out if it's a little girl or a little boy."

"Yeah!" Nova responds, soaking up the news.

Cate asks her if she'd rather have a little brother or sister, and Nova doesn't hesitate to say she'd prefer a sister.

Tyler, who's always been open about how much he wants a son, makes a face, then asks her "What if it's a boy?"

Catelynn asks her if she'd be happy with a little brother too, and she says she would, because she's precious and perfect.

They start talking to Nova about babies, and they tell her babies cry a lot.

"Yeah, then you just say 'shh,'" Nova says, again, because she is too cute for this world.

She then says that she's going to rock the baby and feed it bottles and be a big sister.

"He's so cute!" she exclaims. "I love him!"

The whole thing is really just painfully adorable, it really is.

It's also nice to see a lighthearted moment with the family, after how heavy things got for them last season.

Some people think that Catelynn and Tyler rushed into having another baby, that they should have waited longer after her trips to rehab.

But one thing is for sure, and that is that Nova is going to be the best big sister.

Check out the sweet moment in the video below:

Tyler Baltierra Shows Off Jaw-Dropping, 43-Pound Weight Loss!

Teen Mom star Tyler Baltierra has flaunted his wild weight loss before, but this time, his thirst trap is accompanied by a before photo.

In case the powerful visual of his body's transformation isn't enough, he reveals exactly how much weight he's lost.

Take a look:

Ty Baltierra

Tyler Baltierra posted a pair of shirtless photos of himself.

In the first, he looks overweight. It's not an especially flattering image for a few reasons.

His body type in the pic could be described as "soft" or even, dare we say it, "dad bod."

Tyler wants fans to know how much weight he's lost, so he starts his captions with his stats.

"208lbs to 165lbs!" Tyler announces. 

Tyler Baltierra Body Transformation

That makes for a weight difference of 43 pounds. Wow!

"I’ve been eating healthy for about 7 months," Tyler reveals about his lifestyle transformation.

Tyler then clarifies what he means by healthy food, since everybody has their own definition.

He explains: "(no processed foods/low carbs/no sugar)"

Different diets have different effects, but you can't argue with his results!

Tyler Baltierra selfie

Tyler has been eating like this for more than half a year.

"But," he says. "I’ve only been working out for 3 of those months."

Diet and exercise combined are radically transforming his body.

"And," Tyler writes. "I’m finally starting to see results from it!"

Um, we're all seeing those results.

Tyler Baltierra, Instagram Selfie

"#ReachingGoals," Tyler tagged his post. "#SelfLove."

Learning to love yourself is a great first step to taking measures to improve your health.

He followed that up with the tags: "#Dedication #NaturalEndorphins."

Exercise may be miserable, but the release of natural endorphins is part of the reward.

Finally, Tyler tags: "#IAmMyOnlyCompetition"

That sounds like a very healthy mindset.

He's not competing for Catelynn's heart -- he won that a long time ago.

He's comparing his body and his current weight to his old body and his old weight.

Tylier Baltierra Posts Weight Loss Thirst Trap

Tyler Baltierra working out and posting these thirst traps has been great for his self esteem.

It has also, some cynical fans fear, been a warning that Tyler and Catelynn will get divorced.

Some people worry when one spouse suddenly starts working hard on getting hot.

While Catelynn obviously enjoys his new hot body, some fans fear that he's preparing to leave her or at least step out on her.

If, they say, he has not done so already.

Tyler Baltierra Gets Honest on Instagram

But Tyler isn't getting hot so that he can bang other women.

He's getting hot for himself. He is working to better his physical health, his mental health, and his emotional health.

Tyler has been open and honest about his struggles, but improving his health from without and within can really help him -- in conjunction with proper medication and therapy.

By sharing his journey with fans and followers, Tyler is showing that they can follow in his footsteps.

Plus, he's also showing off a little. That's okay. He has more than earned those bragging rights.

Catelynn Lowell: Did She Just Confirm Tyler Baltierra is Divorcing Her?!

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been the subject of divorce rumors for a long, long time.

From the very moment they finally got married, it seems.

Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell at the VMAs

This is for many reasons, and of course one of them is that gossip is just so much fun.

But another, much more significant one is that ever since we first saw Catelynn and Tyler on our televisions, they've had some major problems.

The thing is that these two have been together since they were twelve years old -- they weren't just high school sweethearts, they were middle school sweethearts.

They also have some serious issues with their parents. Tyler's father, Butch, had been a drug addict for decades before very recently getting clean, and Cate's mother, April, was an alcoholic.

Cate Lowell Photo

So when Butch and April got married, making Catelynn and Tyler step-siblings ...

Yeah, there was a lot going on back then.

And when Catelynn got pregnant at 16 with a child they chose to place for adoption, something their parents strongly disagreed with, it didn't exactly make things any easier.

In early seasons of Teen Mom OG, we saw the two break up and get back together several times over your typical teenage relationship issues.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler

But although they had their doubts over the years, they finally got married in 2015, the same year they had their daughter, Nova.

After that, their problems became even worse.

Catelynn suffered from some pretty serious postpartum depression after having Nova, and things got so bad that she felt the need to check into a treatment center in Arizona for a few weeks.

She and Tyler struggled after that because he had a hard time understanding her depression, and since she dealt with it for so long, he began to wonder if he was part of the problem.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, 2018 Selfie

He told her that he couldn't go on with things being as bad as they were, but thankfully it seemed like she began to feel better sometime last year.

So much better that they decided it was time to try for another child, and last fall, she became pregnant again.

Unfortunately, she had a miscarriage, and with the loss of the pregnancy, she began considering suicide.

She made the decision, fully supported by her husband, to go back to that rehab in Arizona, and she stayed there for six weeks working on her mental health.

Catelynn Lowell Instagram Selfie

But when she returned home, she quickly realized that things still weren't right, and she went back for another six weeks -- and that's something Tyler obviously struggled with.

As we saw on last season's finale of Teen Mom OG, he tried convincing her to deal with things this time at a local outpatient facility so she didn't have to leave her family again.

She wasn't willing to try that, and when he explained that their daughter had a tough time dealing with her absence last time, she simply said that "she'll manage."

In a heated talk with his sister, Tyler even said that he felt that maybe he and Catelynn weren't right for each other anymore.

Catelynn Lowell, Tyler Baltierra on Instagram

But all of that happened at the beginning of this year, and a lot has changed since then.

Catelynn is pregnant again, that's one thing!

She and Tyler both seem very excited about the pregnancy ... but, uh, what about all that talk about splitting up?

As Cate reveals in a new interview with Us Weekly, it's still kind of a possibility.

Catelynn Baltierra

"It's not like we're in the gutter or we're getting a divorce like everybody says," she explains.

"Couples go through ups and downs, just like any relationship, even friendships, family, you know, and it's all about how you work through things."

"What I went through put a lot of strain on a relationship," she continues, "especially leaving him and him having to be a single dad for so long and running a business on his own."

"I have a lot of sympathy for what I put him through. I think that's put a lot of stress on our relationship."

She adds that "Right now, we're hitting a couple bumps that need to be worked through."

But that's not necessarily a bad thing!

"I feel like every couple goes through bumps in the road, especially as you're growing up together like me and Ty have," she says.

"I mean, we've been together 13 years now and married for three, so we've grown up together."

"I feel like, as people, you grow up and you change in certain ways, and it's all about learning how to process that with your significant other and how do you go from there or how you change things," she concludes.

It sounds like Catelynn and Tyler aren't in the best place right now, and like they're definitely still working through everything that happened when she went to treatment.

But, on the bright side, it also sounds like they're determined to get through it together -- or at least she is.

Since they've got a new addition to their family coming in a few short months, let's hope they manage to work things out.

Best wishes, Baltierras!

But... amazing surprise!

They announced Catelynn's pregnancy two weeks and have been flying high ever since.

Teen Mom OGs vs. The Newbies: Is There a Beef?

We just heard what Farrah Abraham thinks of her replacements.

In an extended interview, the former Teen Mom OG star has some harsh words for Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd.

But Abraham hasn't actually shot any scenes with these Season 8 additions. We don't think she's even met them.

Maci Bookout, Catelynn Lowell and Amber Portwood, on the other hand, have already starting filming upcoming episodes of the MTV hit with Palin and Floyd, meaning they can provide some actual insight into the fresh faces.

What has filming been like so far?

How do the three OGs feel about the two newbies?

Maci, Catelynn and Amber spoke to Us Weekly about Palin and Floyd, giving fans an update on how everything is going on the series, which returns to MTV on Monday, October 1.

Check out their quotes below.

Catelynn Lowell Shares Ultrasound Photo With Fans: I Can’t Wait to Meet My Baby!

Last week, the Teen Mom community received some joyous news.

After a rocky year filled with just about every kind of emotional hardship, Catelynn Lowell is pregnant with her third child.

And it's clear that Lowell simply can't contain her excitement.

Over the weekend, Catelynn posted the above ultrasound image on her Instagram page.

“Already can’t wait to meet you little nugget,� lowell captioned the pic.

Naturally, fans were quick to echo the reality star's excitement, with many offering words of congratulations.

The news of Lowell's pregnancy is especially sweet coming as it does on the heels of a tremendously difficult year for Catelynn and her husband, Tyler Baltierra.

The downward spiral when Lowell suffered a miscarriage.

The tragedy triggered a sharp decline in her mental state that eventually led Catelynn to check into rehab.

Catelynn was diagnosed with PTSD, and with the help of her team of doctors, she began to work toward a healthier future.

Cradling That Bump

The timing has led Lowell and Baltierra to liken their forthcoming new addition to a rainbow -- the beautiful phenomenon that follows even the darkest of storms.

“The big news is that we are expecting our rainbow baby," Lowell told Us Weekly in a recent interview.

"This baby is our rainbow after the storm. I’m super excited."

Lowell said she and Tyler were not expecting to get pregnant but were overjoyed when they learned she's expecting:

“It was a huge shock at first. We were not planning it, especially after the miscarriage and how I went downhill with my mental illness," said Lowell.

"We were going to wait a really long time.

"We were using protection and everything and still got pregnant. This baby just wanted to be here. It was very unexpected.�

The baby's gender, however, was anticipated by Catelynn who once remarked of her husband, “It’s like Tyler just makes girls. The guys make the gender.�

We're not sure if Catelynn's theories of reproductive science hold water, but far be it for us to rain on her parade.

The progress she and Tyler have made with their respective ailments is truly remarkable, and it's no wonder that they've quickly become the Teen Mom world's most beloved couple.

We wish these two and their growing family all the best in the years to come.

Catelynn Lowell Reveals Due Date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What did they say? And what is her due date?

2. Fair Enough. How Far Along is She?

14 weeks, Catelynn says, which doesn't mean she is totally out of the miscarriage woods. But once a woman is past 12 weeks, the odds of a miscarriage grow considerably lower.

3. Thank Goodness, Right?
