Tyler Baltierra cries in video after Catelynn Lowell returns to treatment
UPI News Service, 02/06/2018
Tyler Baltierra had a "bad day" Monday following wife Catelynn Lowell's return to treatment.
The 26-year-old television personality shared an emotional message with his 2.2 million Instagram followers after Lowell entered a six-week program in January.
"I was about to delete this post...then I thought about it more deeply. If I can at least connect with one person through this & let them know that they aren't alone in their struggles. It will make being vulnerable worth it," he captioned the clip.
The video shows Baltierra struggling to hold back tears as he discusses daughter Novalee. The "Teen Mom OG" star shares 2-year-old Novalee with Lowell, whom he married in August 2015.
"Sometimes you just don't even really know what to say to your children. I don't ever cry in front of Nova or anything because I don't want her to feel any of that," Baltierra said.
"You have good days and then you have bad days. Today is just a bad day."
"I know I'm not the only one feeling like this. So if you're in that same boat as me, just hang in there and you're not alone and talk to somebody," he added.
Lowell returned to treatment in January after completing another six-week program in December.
She said she's seeking help for "childhood trauma" after being treated for suicidal thoughts.
