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

Catelynn lowell and tyler baltierra pic
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: 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."

Tyler Baltierra: I Had a Mental Breakdown Last Year, Too!

2017 was not a great time for the Baltierra family.

And that's a pretty huge understatement.

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, 2018 Selfie

Lots and lots of things happened for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra last year, and it seems like not a whole lot of them were great.

Tyler's father, Butch, kicked off the year dealing with his lifelong drug addiction, but thankfully he did check into a longterm rehab.

As far as we know, he's still doing well, so that's something.

Amber, Tyler's sister, checked into rehab too with problems of her own.

Ty Baltierra

Hopefully she's doing as well as their father is!

As far as family stuff goes, those are clearly some pretty big ups and downs.

But nothing affected Catelynn and Tyler as badly as her miscarriage did.

As we saw last season on Teen Mom OG, the longtime couple made the decision last year to try for another baby.

Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell at the VMAs

They already had Carly, the girl Catelynn got pregnant with when they were teenagers, the one they placed for adoption.

And in 2015, they welcomed Nova, another darling little girl.

But after Nova was born, Cate suffered from severe postpartum depression.

It eventually got so bad that she checked into a treatment center, but even after leaving there, her depression persisted.

Catelynn Lowell Instagram Selfie

At some point early last year though, things started to turn around, and like we said, they decided the time was right to have another baby.

She got pregnant pretty soon after they started trying to conceive, and they quickly shared the news with family.

Then the miscarriage happened.

We didn't see too much of it on the show, which is good.

The Baltierras

As reality stars, they share a lot of themselves, but some things should stay private.

During one segment, we did see Tyler explaining what happened, and he was clearly broken up about it.

Catelynn, however, began contemplating suicide, so she checked into that treatment center once again.

We all know what happened after that -- she completed six weeks of treatment, went home for a bit, then went back for six more weeks of treatment.

Catelynn Lowell with Pink Hair

As difficult a time as she had then, things are looking up now.

She's pregnant again, and she and Tyler both seem to be really excited about it.

But in a new interview, Tyler got really, really candid about how difficult things got last year, particularly with the miscarriage.

And man, is it rough to hear.

Tyler Baltierra, Instagram Selfie

He calls the miscarriage a "traumatic loss" and admits that it was "very emotionally intense," but he says that his first reaction was to tend to Catelynn.

"I ran to her, held her," he recounts. "We cried. We just held each other for probably two hours and cried."

"That was our way of kind of letting go and accepting reality for what it is."

"From a guy's perspective," he continues, clarifying that he doesn't mean "to sound sexist," but "it's almost more acceptable for a woman to break down and be emotional."

Tyler with Catelynn

"But I swear, as a man, when I walked away from Cate and I didn't have to be so strong, I was breaking down every single day."

When she went away to get treatment, he says "I was taking Nova to school and just crying every single day."

"I'm assuming a lot of women do the same thing. It's just not really talked about a lot with men."

It's heartbreaking to hear all of this, but there's one thing that helped him cope, and that was his daughter.

Tyler Baltierra and Nova

Tyler says that "Seeing Nova and realizing that I can't sit here and sulk in my pity" got him through the difficult time.

"I've gotta be strong, engage with my daughter, play with her, take her to the park."

"I still had a job to do of raising her around the happiest environment I could make for her," he explains.

"I kind of felt that she was my motivation to keep strong, looking at her and saying, 'I did lose this child, but look at this beautiful child I've got now.'"

Tyler Baltierra Catelynn Lowell Novalee Hike Pic

As touching as it is, he adds that Nova "helped me push myself forward and keep going."

During that time, Tyler says that he'd put his daughter to bed, then "go in my room and cry about it."

For him, it was important not to hide his emotions from her, but it was also important not to break down in front of her, either.

From where we're sitting, it looks like handled the situation well.

In the newest clip of Catelynn and Tyler on Teen Mom OG, the one where they tell Nova they're having a baby, she looks like a very happy little girl.

Hopefully, in other scenes, we'll see more happiness from them.

After all they've been through, they definitely deserve it!

Tyler Baltierra: It’s Weird AF to Star Alongside Bristol Palin!

Tyler Baltierra two huge reasons to be very happy and extremely excited these days.

FIRST, the long-time reality star has lost 43 pounds of late and he looks amazing.

SECOND, he's having another baby!!!!!!!

Tyler Baltierra and palin

Tyler and wife Catelynn announced this month that their third child is due in March, an especially blessed development considering they lost one to a miscarriage back in January 2018.

But Baltierra said this week on the podcast “Reality Life with Kate Casey" that he unfortunately has one reason NOT to be so happy and excited at the moment.

And that reason has everything to do with one of his new Teen Mom OG co-stars.

For the first time since the news of her casting broke, Tyler has spoken out on the addition of Bristol Palin to the franchise.

“Do I think it’s weird as hell? Absolutely. Do I think it’s a really, like, not a good decision for the franchise? Yeah. But that’s out of my control,". he said on the recording

Bristol Palin Meyer

We definitely understand the first part of that statement.

Bristol Palin was the daughter of the nominee for Vice President of the United States in 2008.

She was on stage at the Republican National Committee. She made MAJOR national/political headlines for months because she was a pregnant teenager at the time of this election...

... and now she's gonna be on Teen Mom OG Season 8!

That is absolutely weird as hell.

Bristol and 3 Kids

But is it bad for the franchise?

Time, and ratings really, will tell.

The stunning casting decision has certainly resulted in an abundance of coverage for the series, as Bristol and Cheyenne Floyd will both come on board the program this fall.

They are jointly taking over for Farrah Abraham, whose affiliation with amateur pornography led to her departure from MTV in February.

To be clear, meanwhile, Tyler says he has no beef with Bristol on a personal level.

Tyler and Catelynn Baltierra

Heck, he had never met her before filming began and scarcely knew anything about her.

“I don’t know anything about anybody,� he said on the podcast. “It’s weird. When it comes to that kind of stuff, I’m a f-cking recluse.�

He was also just 16 years old back when Palin was in the national spotlight.

Pver the past two months, though, he’s heard about some of Palin’s controversies, such as her stance against gay marriage and her hot Republican takes in general.

“I got headlines sent to me, ‘Oh my gosh, she’s racist, she’s homophobic,’� he says. “I’m like, ‘What? I don’t know!’�

He'll soon find out, however!

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, 2018 Selfie

So will MTV viewers across the globe.

The new season of Teen Mom OG kicks off this Monday, October 1.

Still, Baltierra says he’s reserving judgment until he gets to know the Alaska native better:

“I’m like, I can’t read the tabloids. I gotta just get to know the person on my own. I don’t want to get any preconceived judgments or notions about these people.�

Moreover, he doesn't blame Bristol for coming on board.

This is how Tyler concludes his opinion on the unexpected situation:

Do I have any hard feelings against the girls, the people participating in it now? Absolutely not.

Because I think with the franchise - like, what it turned into -  if the opportunity knocks on anyone’s door, I think everyone would be lying if they said they wouldn’t take the opportunity.

Honestly, things evolve, they gotta grow and they gotta adapt to change as we get on with this whole thing that we’ve been doing for 10 years now.

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.

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.

"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!

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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Catelynn Lowell has another bombshell to drop.

It can't match the announcement made by this Teen Mom just a few days ago (SHE'S PREGNANT!), but it's a pretty important tidbit to share nonetheless.

In an interview with Radar Online, Catelynn shared the exact date on which her third child is due, while also getting candid about the reaction of her family to this enormous piece of news.

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

Scroll down to find out!

1. How Did She React to the Pregnancy?

Cradling that bump
Lowell has already admitted it wasn't planned, and she expounded on that in this interview, telling Radar: "Whenever you find out you're pregnant, at first t'e like an initial shock and anxiety. It's like oh my gosh, you just get a little anxious."

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?

Catelynn and husband Tyler already went through a miscarriage a few months ago; the former was so traumatized that she entered rehab for a few mental health problems.

4. So... When is She Due?!?

Mark it down, folks: March 6, 2019. This means she's a Pisces, for those wondering.

5. When Did Catelynn and Tyler Learn the News?

"At first, it was scary and emotional and it just takes you by surprise. I found out at five weeks... once it sunk in, we started getting more and more excited."

6. Which Teen Moms Knew Before the Public Announcement?

Only a couple. "Maci and Amber," Catelynn said of Bookout and Portwood, adding of her co-stars: "When I told them, they were both super excited for us."

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra: Irresponsible for Having Another Baby??

If you keep up with all the latest Teen Mom news and gossip, then there's absolutely no chance that you haven't heard the big news by now:

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are expecting another baby!

This will be their third child -- their first, Carly, was born when the two were only 16 and they placed her for adoption, and their second, Nova, was born in January of 2015.

Catelynn was actually pregnant last year, but unfortunately she suffered a miscarriage, one that was extremely difficult for her to handle.

After it happened, she began to contemplate suicide, but she was able to reach out to her family before she acted on those thoughts.

She decided to check into a treatment center in Arizona, the same one she visited in 2016 for her severe postpartum depression.

This all happened in November, so in December, Cate decided to check out before completing her planned six weeks of treatment so she could spend Christmas with her daughter.

But after coming home, she realized she wasn't ready, so she went back to Arizona, then came home for real when she finished her treatment at the end of the month.

As we saw on the last season of Teen Mom OG, she was still pretty down, and in a discussion she had with Tyler, she said that she was struggling with simple tasks like getting out of bed and bathing.

At that point, she'd already made the decision to go back for another six weeks at her rehab center, and even though Tyler had some reservations about it, off she went.

She stayed there until March, when she came home for good.

Why are we going over all of that again?

Because what with her relatively recent rehab stays, there are a lot of fans who believe that perhaps it wasn't the best idea for her to get pregnant again so soon.

And, as always, those fans were super vocal with their opinions when Tyler shared the big news on Instagram.

"I think Catelynn should worry about her mental health issues before having any kids," one person wrote.

Another commented that "having a baby will most likely put her into depression after giving birth, it's not healthy at all."

"Y'all two are so unstable," someone told them. "Not to mention suicidal. This is NOT good news. Poor kids is all I gotta say."

Yet another hater said that hopefully Tyler is "prepared" to take care of Nova and the new baby "once she has the baby and decides she needs to jet off to rehab to ride horses & have spa days again."

There were lots and lots of comments like that, and although Catelynn hasn't commented on them (she's even turned the comments off on her own posts about the pregnancy), Tyler did.

Over on Twitter, he retweeted the following:

"If no one with depression had kids the world would start shrinking at an alarming rate. If you are one of the lucky few never to experience it. Give a prayer of thanks and don't talk about what you do not understand."

"THIS. RIGHT HERE," Tyler added. "NAILED IT!!!

It's clear that Tyler is excited about Catelynn's pregnancy, and it seems like she really is, too.

But what all those commenters on Instagram were trying to point out with varying levels of hatefulness was that perhaps it would have been best if they'd been able to wait a little longer to have another baby.

Cate was in inpatient treatment for her depression for three months less than a year ago, and that's a little more intense than many people with depression deal with.

On top of that, she did seem a bit cold with Nova the last time she went to rehab.

On Teen Mom OG, we saw her be very impatient with her, and she left for treatment without even telling her she'd be gone again.

Then, when Tyler told her that her being gone for so long had been hard on Nova, she simply said "she'll manage," and a lot of viewers took that to mean that she didn't really care how her daughter handled her absence.

But still, no matter what your thoughts are on Catelynn and Tyler and their parenting skills, the fact is that another baby is coming into the family, and despite anything that's happened, it clear that they both love little Nova very, very much.

So really, our only choice right now is to be excited for them and to offer them the best wishes with their upcoming addition.

Congrats again, Baltierras!

Catelynn Lowell Confesses: I Hope My Baby Is A…

Let's get one thing straight, right up front:

Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra just want a happy and healthy baby.

The veteran Teen Mom stars, who announced they were expecting a child yesterday, will be content with a newborn of any type.

But Catelynn opened up to Us Weekly in the wake of her pregnancy announcement and admitted that she does have a gender preference.

So does her husband.

There's no reason to pretend otherwise.

“I think we both want a boy for sure, but also we have Nova,” Lowell explained, referring to the tandem's three-year-old daughter and adding;

“So it’s, like, if we’re just meant to have girls, we’re meant to have girls.”

The couple also had a girl about nine years ago.

She was named Carly and she was given up for adoption because Catelynn and Tyler didn't feel ready to be parents.

"It’s like Tyler just makes girls. The guys make the gender," Catelynn adding, making an accurate reference to science.

Lowell actually shared a photo of her sonogram with the aforementioned tabloid.

She said she got "an early blood test called Sneak Peek," but "I did it too early... at 10 weeks ... and I guess you’re supposed to wait a little longer than 10 weeks.”

A little while from now, at her upcoming upcoming 4-D ultrasound appointment, Catelynn hopes to find out the sex of her child.

How exciting!

The impending little human will be what is known as a "rainbow" baby because it follows a miscarriage.

Both Catelynn and Tyler opened up this past February about suffering such a giant loss just a few weeks earlier, with Catelynn even entering rehab as a result to deal with bouts of depression.

The couple likely would have tried for another baby at some point, but Catelynn admits that wasn't the plan when she found out she was expecting a few weeks ago.

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

We've admired for a long time how candid Catelynn has been with this struggle.

Tyler was taken aback by the pregnancy at first, but he's now fully embraced the situation.

“He’s obviously just as happy as I am,” Lowell told Us Weekly. “We love being parents and can’t wait for our newest addition.”

Lowell's fellow Teen Moms have not yet commented on the pregnancy or sent notes of congratulations.

But we're here to say that we're so very happy for Catelynn and Tyler.

They've been through more than most famous twosomes, yet they've never lost sight of their love for each other and have vowed throughout even the lowest of times to stick by each other's side.

Good for them.

We wish Catelynn the best in her pregnancy.
