Tyler Baltierra’s Nighttime Message Has Fans Worried
Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra’s mind was racing on Monday, April 2.
“Laying in bed next to my peacefully sleeping wife,” Baltierra, 26, tweeted at 11:42 p.m. “I can hear my daughter snoozing away through the monitor in her room. My dog is cuddled up on the floor next to me . . . & yet I feel so empty . . . so alone. #TheCruelIronyOfLife.”
His message received nearly 500 replies, including one from wife Catelynn Lowell. “I am so sorry babe . . . I will do anything to help you . .. you are an amazing husband and father and are so caring, funny, and thoughtful,” wrote the 25-year-old MTV personality. “Don’t let life bring you don’t because you are one strong man . . .I love you so much.”
Others echoed the sentiment. “Hang in there, Tyler! Lots of people rooting for you,” wrote one fan. Added another: “You have so many people that love you. Especially Cate and Nova. You are not alone!” Some expressed concern that Baltierra is too busy taking care of others — but not himself.
The parents of Novalee, 3, have been open about their struggles with anxiety and depression. In February, Catelynn completed her third treatment program for mental health struggles. Tyler, meanwhile, revealed in his and Lowell’s 2015 book Conquering Chaos that he attempted to commit suicide at age 11.
