Tyler Baltierra recently shared the story of his epic weight loss.
And it’s very impressive, don’t get us wrong.
But the Teen Mom OG veteran has impressed us even more with a tribute to wife Catelynn that makes it clear: He never, ever, ever wants to lose her.
With rumors of a divorce constantly swirling around Tyler and Catelynn, the former took to Instagram this week and poured his svelte heart out for all to see and swoon over.
“Life is really simple if you think about it,” wrote Tyler to kick off a lengthy caption, which he attached to the photo above, prior to adding in far more detail:
“If you love something … fight for it. Sacrifice for it. Love it so much that it makes you want to love yourself in a way you never knew you were even capable of loving.
Continued Baltierra, who fans were convinced as recently last month was going to leave Catelynn:
“It’s been 13 years together & that’s not because of luck or us not arguing or not getting upset with one another …
“That’s because everyday, we choose to love each other unconditionally, with all the flaws & all the baggage our past lives has given us.”
We love that perspective.
As they said, it’s not about finding someone who is perfect, right? It’s about finding someone who is perfect for YOU.
For his part, Tyler has always been very open about his struggles with mental health, specifically his bipolar order diagnosis.
Anyway. He wasn’t done here gushing over his wife.
“We choose to listen to one another & be heard by one another,” the MTV personality wrote, adding:
“We choose to confront our issues head on & fix them together. We choose to nurture our spiritual bond together & share lives ups and downs with one another.
“We are lovers in this life, so we can be soulmates in our afterlife.”
Wow. That’s some profound stuff right there, Ty.
Baltierra and Lowell got married in August of 2015.
They are the parents to two kids, one of whom they gave up for adoption back when they were stars on 16 & Pregnant.
Overall, the couple’s ups and downs have been documented at length on Teen Mom OG over the years, most notably Lowell’s miscarriage last year that led her to enter a treatment facility due to sucidal thoughts.
“You Are Beautiful. You Are Worthy,” Tyler wrote to Catelynn in this mini online essay.
“You Are Strong. You Are Safe … & I love you more than this realm will allow me to express in all my desired ways.”
Despite all the negative chatter surrounding her and her husband, Catelynn has always insisted than their relationship was stable.
“Tyler and I are not getting a divorce. Couples go through ups and downs. That’s normal life,” Lowell told Us Weekly in May, concluding at the time:
“We are a solid couple that will work through anything life throws at us.”
As of this writing, Tyler’s tribute to Catelynn has been Liked over 186,000 times. People are clearly affected by his candor.
Which is great and everything.
But we’re guessing there’s only one person out there he cares about reading it and believing every word of it.
