Teen Mom OG Recap: Tyler and Catelynn Finally Respond to Divorce Rumors!

by at .

It's been a wild ride for Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra.

Once one of the Teen Mom franchise's most beloved and semi-stable couples, Tyler and Catelynn's relationship is now a constant source of controversy and speculation.

When Lowell and Baltierra separated on a trial basis earlier this year, many fans assumed that was it for the couple.

They've since reconciled, and they say they're doing better than ever.

But last night's episode of Teen Mom OG found the Baltierras positively irate about the ongoing rumors surrounding their marriage.

"Because my birth control thing is expiring soon, so I was just going to talk about other birth control options," she told him. "Me thinking about not being on birth control at all, so I could see what my PCOS looks like," Maci explained in reference to her polycystic ovary syndrome diagnosis.

"I'm scared that it's a permanent decision," he said, adding that he was "not 100% sure" he didn't want more children.
