Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra may have their own home now, but before that, Catelynn was living with her mother, April Baltierra, and it wasn’t always easy. April has had a drug problem for several years and as soon as Catelynn was of age, she knew she had to distance herself from it.
“I need to get out,” Cate recalls telling her fiance Tyler Baltierra. “I have nowhere to go, I can’t live at my mom’s house so I’m gonna get my place. You can come along if you want to, or you can live at your mom’s, but I need to get my own place.”
While it’s always scary to move away from home, the reward outweighs the risk and Catelynn stepped up and did what was right for her at the time.
Tyler was also living with a parent at the time so once Catelynn was ready, he was all for going out on their own. Tyler’s dad, Butch Baltierra, has also struggled with addiction, as fans of Teen Mom have seen.
Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra now have a gorgeous place they call home. To see more of them, tune in to the final episode of Teen Mom on August 28.
