Tyler Baltierra and his wife Catelynn Baltierra are expecting their third child together as they continue to live apart
'Teen Mom' OG stars Tyler Baltierra and his pregnant wife Catelynn are currently trying to work through their problems while choosing to live separately. On the most recent episode of the reality TV show, the couple was seen agreeing to live apart temporarily.
On Monday night's episode, the pair was seen returning from couple's therapy in Sedona, Arizona after which they made their decision. Their mutual agreement took place after they discovered that they were pregnant with their child together — a baby girl. In a voiceover, 26-year-old Catelynn shared, "Getting pregnant was very unexpected since we still have a lot of work to do on our relationship."
"I know Tyler has been frustrated in our marriage for a while and has been seeing a therapist. He decided he wanted to try living separately for a month. I was devastated, at first, but now that I’ve started my own therapy, I’m more comfortable with the idea," she continued.
While explaining the whole situation to the MTV producer Kerthy, Catelynn added, "We’ve been together for so long that it’s like who are you as a person, by yourself?" to which Tyler shared, "That’s why I said, ‘I want to live separately.’ I just felt like it was the best place to bring it up, I guess."
Catelynn responded, "Am I jumping of joy? No. At that moment it did trigger me, it did bring up wounds, it was scary, it was sad, it was hurtful. With the things that I’ve been through, people saying they want to leave… It seriously does feel like somebody died."
Catelynn also discussed how dealing with the pregnancy and also raising the couple's 3-year-old child Novalee Reign while living separately, sharing that it caused a lot of stress. "In my mind, it makes it harder for a mom to do that, and taking care of a 3-year-old and then being pregnant. It’s just a lot of stress," Catelynn told Tyler. However, the pair prepared to host a gender reveal party and Catelynn asked MTV producer Kiki whether Tyler was interested in someone else.
Kiki asked Catelynn, "There’s never been any discussion of, ‘Let’s go see other people?’" to which Catelynn replied saying, "No, we’ve had that discussion where we’re both like, ‘We don’t want to see other people. We’re not getting a divorce or anything. I was getting super triggered from my childhood trauma. [Feeling like] he was going to abandon me. I even texted him and asked him, ‘Is there somebody else?’ He said, ‘What the f***? Do you think that I would cheat on you?’ In my heart of hearts, no, but it was just so blindsiding. Like, what the f— is going on?"
"I feel like the separation thing is going to be hard, but it’d be good for me in a way — I’ll have time to really focus on me and Nova. It’s always just been like Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty, Cate and Ty," she continued. The pair also reassured their families that their living arrangement was just temporary and not permanent.
Catelynn told her grandmother Deborah, "The pregnancy is not considered high risk or anything like that, which is good. I think that miscarriage pushed me over the edge but it also taught me to dig into traumas that I wasn’t digging into. We don’t want to get divorced, we don’t want to get different bank accounts or switch last names or anything crazy. Marriage is a choice. Those butterflies and that lust stuff goes away. You still love each other, and sometimes you still get butterflies when they’re gone for a long time."

While Tyler shared with his mother Kim, "We’ll start marriage counseling and she just got her new therapist, finally. It’s going to be fine, it’ll be normal. I said, ‘We’ll go on date nights, I’ll pick you up, we’ll eat dinner together.’ Obviously, I want [to spend time with Nova."
The couple was first seen when they were 16-years-old on MTV's show '16 and Pregnant' when Catelynn was pregnant with the pair's first child Carly whom they gave up for adoption. The pair then had their second child Nova in the year 2015.
