9 Things You Didn’t Know About Tyler And Catelynn Baltierra’s Relationship
Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 have quickly become not only one of MTV’s most successful series on television, but one of the most popular reality TV series on right now. A lot of fans have watched right from the star’s 16 & Pregnant episodes, and have seen almost all of the couples break-up when faced with being young parents, except of course for fan favorites Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. Considering fans have watched the young couple grow together for almost 8 years now from struggling with putting their first daughter up for adoption to getting married and welcoming another daughter, many think they know everything there is to know about the pair!
9. Getting Together
Fans of the couple are well aware that they got together young, but it was actually when they were only 12 years old and met in their 7th grade music class. Over the years they have reminisced about starting their relationship so young, but Tyler’s reasoning wasn’t very romantic. In their book Conquering Chaos, which they co-wrote, Tyler explained what first attracted him to Cate. “She’s got bigger tits than any other girl in the 7th grade,” Tyler wrote of his very first thoughts on being interested in Cate. Luckily he has said more romantic things too, such as, “I have loved her since the moment I saw her. Her punk rocker hair and attitude matched perfectly for my edgy, hyper personality.”
Although Tyler wasn’t a virgin when he and Cate started dating, she was, and she wasn’t about to just have it happen despite Tyler constantly asking. In the book, Catelynn wrote about her decision to wait with Tyler, despite some pressure from him. “Tyler really wanted to have sex, but I made him wait for about nine months. I never worried that he’d dump me liked he’d dump those other girls. Not because I was sure he wouldn’t, but because if he did, that would just mean he wasn’t the right guy for me. It was that simple. I wasn’t going to compromise my self-respect.” However, when the two did begin having sex they said they did it “all the time,” and admitted they didn’t use protection. “We were doing adult things with a child’s level of understanding,” Tyler explained of how they ended up pregnant at 16.
