Teen Mom Catelynn Lowell's husband Tyler Baltierra admits they feel 'inferior' to daughter Carly's adoptive parents
TEEN Mom Catelynn Lowell's husband Tyler Baltierrarevealed the couple feel 'inferior' tobiological daughter Carly's adoptive parents, but are working to overcome their insecurities.
Catelynn went so far as to say the couple even have a “good relationship” with Brandon and Teresa.
"Relationships are hard any which way. So it’s just all about, like, growing and learning and maneuvering,” Catelynn told Us Weekly.
The tone was a stark contrast to one shared back in April, when Catelynnconfessed her deepest fears over losing contact with her daughter Carly, worrying that the child's adoptive parents had the ability to cut communication "at the snap of a finger."
"Communication with her adoptive parents, Brandon and Teresa, has always been complicated," Catelynn explained at the time. "I don't want to offend them with how we reach out to her."
Tyler agreed, admitting that back then the couple felt "inferior" to Brandon and Theresa.
“I feel like whatever happens, I have to kind of, like, filter through Brandon and Teresa first,” Tyler said during the April episode. “I don’t trust what I’m gonna say sometimes. It’s just very difficult to navigate and feel close in a relationship when you have to second guess your approach and delivery all the time.
"It’s anxiety. … Me and Catelynn have talked about it many times, we’re almost 30 now and we still feel, like, this inferior position.
"I don’t want it to come across like that, but at the end of the day, the reality is, I cannot get to Carly unless it’s going through Brandon and Teresa.”
Catelynn and Tyler gave their daughter up for adoption during the first season of 16 & Pregnant, as they were not even 18 at the time of her birth.
Since then they have welcomed three additional kids together: Novalee, six, Vaeda, two, and most recently baby Rya, who was born on August 28.
The two also revealed they suffered a devastating miscarriage over the holidays last year.
Catelynn previously shared her distress over their separation from Carly as Covid made it difficult to spend time together.
"Because of Covid, we haven't seen her in two years so I feel like we're missing out on getting to know her," she said.
But that distance is slowly closing, as both biological and adoptive parents adjust to their new roles.
“They are her parents," Catelynn told Us Weekly. "They get to make all the decisions for her and rightfully so."
