According to a report from Us Magazine, Tyler Baltierra defended himself on Twitter recently, as well as his wife, Catelynn Lowell, after they were criticized on the internet for putting their daughter, Carly, up for adoption. When someone online accused them of being “trash,” Tyler explained their decision.
Tyler wrote on his account that if putting their child up for adoption was “trash,” then he might as well live in the dump and “put up a throne and call it home, #NoShame.” It was back in 2009 when Tyler and Catelynn welcomed their child into the world when they were both teenagers in the MTV reality series, 16 & Pregnant.
Since then, Tyler and Catelynn have welcomed two more daughters into the world, including Vaeda, who is 4-months-old, as well as Novalee, who is 4-years-old. Back in May of this year, the 27-year-old star said that it was 10 years ago when they welcomed her onto the Earth.
If PLACING my innocent daughter into an adoption plan at 16 with a couple who can not have biological children makes me trash, then you might as well send me to the damn dump so I can put a throne on top & call it home! 🤦🏻♂️😂🤷🏻♂️😏🤣 #NoShame https://t.co/s039Z8LHnN

According to Pop Culture.com, Tyler and Lowell have been an item since they were in middle school, however, they chose to live apart from one another last year. They came together again in February and started seeing a therapist together as well, both on their own as well as a couple.
Lowell said to Us Weekly in May that they did “couple’s therapy” as well as individual therapy, and she believes it helped a lot. The reality star said it was crucial for a couple to learn how to communicate and be honest with each other.
Honestly, I wasn’t even planning on releasing that info, but once Cate mentioned about my recent diagnosis, I figured “what the hell!? Like why am I so against telling anyone!? It’s actually been a little easier to digest since I have been talking about it more #KeeptalkingMH👊🏻 https://t.co/vtoELZZkJn
