While on Teen Mom, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra experienced some ups and downs in their relationship. Despite it all, they seemed to come out on top and remain very solid as a couple. They even announced plans to marry on July 15, 2013, but now it seems that those plans are on hold, as TMZ is reporting Tyler and Catelynn are signed up for the next season of Couples Therapy!
Catelynn and Tyler have been teasing fans by revealing on Twitter that they would be living in California but couldn’t announce why. They each even shared photos of what the view from their Couples Therapy diggs look like!

The VH1 show takes celebrity couples through therapy with Dr. Jenn Berman, a marriage, family and child therapist. Previous participants include Doug Hutchinson and Courtney Stodden, Linda Hogan and DMX. Along with Tyler and Catelynn, season three is rumored to feature Chingy, Flavor Flav and Joe Francis.
Tyler and Catelynn’s complicated relationship began when they met in seventh grade. Catelynn’s mother, April, later married Tyler’s father, Butch. This legally made Tyler and Catelynn step-siblings, however they continued to date and Catelynn ultimately got pregnant in high school. Against the wishes of April and Butch, Tyler and Catelynn made the emotional decision to place their daughter for adoption.
That situation would be stressful on any couple, let alone on two teenagers. Yet, they stuck together.
In the final seasons of Teen Mom, we saw Catelynn deal with body insecurities. Tyler also admitted to having an anger problem.
“I’ve had an authority problem for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been in counseling since the age of four,” Tyler wrote on their shared webpage.
The couple also hit a big bump when it was revealed Catelynn had lied to Tyler about her relationship with an ex-boyfriend. After Teen Mom ended last fall, they had a Twitter tiff when Tyler went down to New Orleans.
“Tyler wanted to stay in New Orleans longer because he had some job possibilities lined up, but I was pushing him to come home for Thanksgiving,” Catelynn told InTouch afterward. “I guess I pushed him a little too hard.”
Since then, things seem to have gone well for the couple. Both are pursuing degrees and regularly share their experiences with adoption during speaking engagements. As far as Couples Therapy goes, it’s way to soon to jump to conclusions about their relationship. Besides, counseling is always wise before getting married, so it may just be an indication they are still on track for a summer wedding!
UPDATE: Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry exclusively told us that she was also approached about joining Couples Therapy!
@starcasm Wahhhh! They approached me but Javi’s away.
Kailyn’s relationship with her husband Javi seems to be pretty solid. But, we can think of another Teen Mom 2 pair that would make a good fit for the show… Anyone know if Jenelle and Courtland are free for Couples Therapy, season four?
