Catelynn Lowell Misses Milestone Moment in Daughter's Life

by at .  Updated at .

Once considered the most stable couple in the Teen Mom franchise, Tyler Baltierra and Catelynn Lowell have endured some serious turmoil of late.

Over the course of the show's current season, things have gone from bad to worse for the pair, as you know if you watch Teen Mom OG online.

There have been rumors that Catelynn and Tyler are headed for divorce, but the Baltierras have repeatedly put their fans' minds at ease on social media.

However, a preview from this week's episode (above) is sure to spark rumors of further difficulties in the young parents' marriage:

In the clip, Tyler takes daughter Novalee for her first haircut.

Interestingly, he does so without Catelynn.

Kids' first haircuts are generally considered to be something milestone occasions, and Catelynn acknowledges this by asking Tyler to save a hair clipping.

In the preview, no reason is given for why she decided to stay home, but we get the feeling the episode will offer an explanation of the situation.

On the bright side, Novalee seems perfectly comfortable in the hairdresser's chair.

The trip goes off without a hitch, and Tyler procures the requested lock of hair for Nova's baby book.

It seems Tyler is a regular at the establishment, and the stylist even asks about his troubled father, Butch.

As you may have heard, Butch Baltierra was arrested recently after recently celebrating a year outside of prison.

Sadly, he's been in and out of jail for most of Tyler's life as a result of ongoing addiction issues, and may end up back there.

Tyler gives the stylist a positive update on Butch in the scene in question, but it's not clear when the scene was filmed.

Based on the clothing, it seems it was shot over the summer, which makes Tyler's optimism about his father's future downright heartbreaking.

Naturally, fans are discussing this on social media, and obviously, speculation as to Cate's whereabouts is running wild.

Many are under the impression that Catelynn didn't join Tyler and Nova because she's trying to limit the amount of time she spends in public.

In the wake of her recent rehab stint, that may not be the worst idea.

We'll have to wait for the episode next Monday night on MTV to find out if that's the case, and for any more details that may be provided.
