Teen Mom OG stars, Catelyn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been together since forever. Well, not really since forever but from middle school, yes. But it seems that their marriage is not doing good as they have been struggling this past season. Tyler is seeing a counselor and is not shy to tell how unhappy he is in this marriage. But, the thing is that just last Monday, the couple announced that Catelynn is pregnant again.
And the cherry on top? Tyler has requested that they try and live apart for one month. All of this came after the two went on a couple therapy in Sedona.
The couple has another child, a daughter named Nova who was already super excited for her new sibling’s arrival, saying:
I’ll rock it and feed it. it’s gonna be so cute!
Talking about living apart, Catelynn didn’t seem too happy about it. She said:
Getting pregnant was unexpected since we still have a lot of work to do on our relationship. I was devastated at first, but now that I’ve started my own therapy, I’m more comfortable with the idea.
The producers of the show asked the couple about their decision, but Catelynn said:
Basically, all I want to share with the cameras is that me and you learned that we’ve been together for so long that it’s like ‘Who are you as a person by yourself?’” Am I jumping of joy for it? No.
Tyler chipped in and then added:
I don’t think any of us are. You took it kind of hard. The intention is not to bring up your anxiety or to make you feel any of your core wounds.
Catelynn decided to speak up about how it made her feel, admitting:
But in that moment it did trigger me. It did bring up wounds. It was scary, it was sad, it was hurtful. Things that I’ve been through, like when people say they want to separate, they want to leave, it seriously does feel like somebody died.
Well, as we all know, Catelynn has been through quite a lot, suffering from a miscarriage, anxiety, and PTSD.
Tyler himself had a hard time deciding to live separately, saying:
That’s why it was so hard for me to even say it because I knew it was the worst possible thing that you could hear.
But all in all, the couple doesn’t seem to be headed towards divorce. At least that is not what Cately said, saying that they’re only taking some time off each other so that they could breathe and figure out what they want. She said:
I even texted him and asked him, ‘Is there somebody else?’ He was like, ‘What the f**k, do you think that I would cheat on you?’ And I’m like, in my heart of hearts, no, but it was just so blindsided.
She then added:
I feel like the separation thing for me is going to be hard, but it’ll be good for me in a way. Then I have time to just focus on me and Nova. It’s always been Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty, just giving each of us room to grow on our own.
But neither of them have said anything about the episode but something that has been noticed is their absence in each other’s social media.
