Tyler Baltierra has had a rough week.
In the last few days alone, his wife, Catelynn Lowell returned to a treatment facility after revealing she has had suicidal thoughts. In the aftermath, he offended the whole internet with a racist slur.
So, it comes as no surprise that he’s feeling a little sentimental right about now. With the holidays in full swing, the Teen Mom star took to Twitter in response to a video showing Catelynn in happier times being shared by the official Teen Mom Twitter page.
The video found Lowell chatting with her co-stars about what she is thankful for this holiday, and it apparently hit Tyler right in the feels because he detailed his reaction to the video right after.
He commented: “My god! My wife looks absolutely beautiful in this #HappyThanksgiving @TeenMom clip! It’s going to be a rough holiday without being able to kiss her & tells her how thankful I am for her, but we have a strong resilience crafter by our past, we got this!”
We can’t begin to imagine how difficult it must be to be apart from your significant other during the holidays, and Tyler has a legion of fans who came out in their droves to support him during this difficult time.
“You are an amazing husband. I’m sure she’s missing you all terribly.” said one Teen Mom devotee.
“This year is extra special, even though you’re not together physically,” another wrote. “You should really be thankful she’s still here with you. Stay strong; we’re all rooting for you guys!”
It was previously reported that Catelynn would be making her way to rehab after having suicidal thoughts. The Teen Mom star confirmed the news herself in a courageous post on Twitter.
"Well today I thought of every way to kill myself.. so I’m going to treatment #makeChesterProud @TalindaB #KeepTalkingMH #thiswontlast," Catelynn tweeted last Friday.
Tyler drove his wife to admit her to the facility and took to Twitter at the time to share his thoughts on the matter, and it was clear he was deeply hurt by everything that was happening.
"We haven’t held each other & just cried like that for a long time," Tyler wrote after leaving Catelynn’s rehab. "Even after 12 years, I continue to be AMAZED by her strength, vulnerability, & courage to get help."
He even went as far as quoting his wedding vows. But then Tyler shocked the land of Teen Mom by using a racial slur on Snapchat after having a few drinks in a bar.
He did make a swift apology and confirmed that he was letting off some steam in the aftermath of what happened with Catelynn.
It’s understandable that someone would want to forget about everything after such an emotional experience, but it made him look like an idiot.
We wish Catelynn a speedy recovery and hope Tyler does not get too drunk at his Thanksgiving celebrations.
