Teen Mom star Catelynn Lowell recently called off her Renaissance-themed wedding to her baby daddy, stepbrother and middle school sweetheart Tyler Baltierra.
She tearfully recalled the experience on VH1's Couples Therapy.
“She was floored. She didn’t see it coming,” Dr. Jenn Berman, their Couples Therapy psychologist, told celebrity gossip publication In Touch.
The couple has not broken up, however. At least not yet.
The reality show's couples counselor says she ultimately sees it as a positive move for the young lovers, who are still living together in Michigan.
“I don’t view it as a setback,” she explains.
“To get married before you are ready is disastrous. By calling off the wedding for now, they are giving themselves a chance for a long and healthy relationship.”
Earlier this month, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra confirmed that their July wedding plans came to a halt after he dropped a major bombshell.
The shocking confession that Tyler isn’t ready for marriage yet left fiancee Catelynn reeling. “It’s absolutely devastating,” a friend of Lowell said.
The couple’s relationship has been put to the test by time apart, as Tyler pursued an acting career in New Orleans and Catelynn stayed behind in Michigan.
“Tyler just isn’t ready for marriage,” Dr. Berman added. “He was so afraid of hurting Catelynn’s feelings that he hadn’t been totally honest with her.”
While there are obviously some issues there, the couple - who gave their daughter up for adoption - are light years ahead of Jenelle Evans at least.
