Teen Mom: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Catelynn Lowell
8. First Meeting
Everyone knows that Catelynn and Tyler have been together since middle school, but more specifically the two met in 7th grade music class. Tyler has said, “I have loved her since the moment I saw her. Her punk rocker hair and attitude matched perfectly for my edgy, hyper personality. I asked her why she fell in love with me and I quote, ‘You could always make me laugh.'” While that is a sweet story of “love at first sight”, Tyler’s reasoning in their book Conquering Chaos was much less adorable. “She’s got bigger tits than any girl in the 7th grade,” he wrote of when he first saw and fell for Catelynn.
7. Home Life
Over the various seasons of Teen Mom OG fans have been to privy to Catelynn and Tyler’s very complicated and sad home life from when they were children. Catelynn’s mother, April, was a longtime abuser of drugs and alcohol while Tyler’s dad Butch has been in and out of jail for Tyler’s entire life because of drugs. Then of course was the extremely awkward time that Catelynn and Tyler spent not only as boyfriend and girlfriend but also as step-siblings after April and Butch decided to get married. In her book Catelynn wrote of her childhood, “At home it was all parties and drinking. My mom had a different boyfriend every few months, and people were partying and playing music loud. I used to get of bed at night and ask them to turn it down so I could get some sleep before I had to go to school.” She also wrote of the frequency her mother would pass out at the table from drinking and drugs, “I’d have to put pillows under her head and make sure she was okay, then take care of my brother and sister. It was just never stable at all.”
