Teen Mom OG’s Tyler Baltierra Shares Sweet Tribute to Catelynn Lowell on Their 12th (!!!) Anniversary
No matter what clever TV editing and/or tabloids may want you to believe, Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra are the real deal, folks.
The Teen Mom OG couple is the only one on the show to still be together after having a child on 16 & Pregnant, and they’re going 12 years strong. That’s longer than most reality TV couples stay together combined!
And being the softie that he is, Ty shared the most adorable tribute to his lady of over a decade.
If you need a refresher on their relationship, Cate and Ty met in a middle school music class, when Tyler transferred to her school in Michigan.
They’ve been basically inseparable ever since — they were even stepsiblings at one point when her mom April and his dad Butch got married — and have been through more in their short lives than most people should have to face in a lifetime.
To celebrate the love of his life, Ty took to Instagram with a photo of himself and Cate then and now, and a super sweet message about their lives together.
You can read the whole caption below, but some of our favorite lines include him calling her “the greatest gift this life has given me” and saying he wishes he “could go back as far as I could just to love you longer!”
I can't believe that today marks 12 years together with you @catelynnmtv, babe you literally are the greatest gift this live has given me! We were only kids when we fell in love, but we were kids who knew what we wanted out of life & who we wanted to get it with. Not a lot of people get that opportunity or blessing at such a young age. Even though we were so young, I wish I could go back as far as I could just to love you longer! I am just so happy & honored to be your husband. I love you SO much! #HappyAnniversary #12YearsStrong #SoulMates #MiddleSchoolSweetheart
The 25-year-old also tweeted about the big occasion, joking, “are we crazy?” for being together for so long?"
Crazy in love, maybe!
While the Baltierras, who got married in August of 2015, have been through the ringer, between their drug addict parents, experimentations with drugs and sex at young ages, and of course, placing their daughter, Carly, for adoption as teens, life seems pretty good for them these days.
They’re raising their adorable 2-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Nova, in their sprawling new home, complete with 5 acres of land and farm animals.
Every kid’s dream!
They also just launched their children’s clothing line, Tierra Reign, which has almost sold out its entire stock in just a few short days.
Plus, they plan to one day open up their own production company where they can produce content like ReUnited, their one-time spin-off about reuniting young adults with their adoptive families, which MTV canceled after just one episode.
If these two aren’t couple #goals, we’re not really so sure what qualifies.
