Teen Mom OG reality star Tyler Baltierra is busy defending comments he made about his future wife, Catelynn Lowell. In the latest episode of the MTV reality show, Tyler said some things concerning the extra weight his fiancé put on during her latest pregnancy.
Catelynn gained an additional 60 pounds of weight during her pregnancy with Novalee Reign and has already managed to lose 20 pounds. However, with a wedding looming over them, she still has quite a few pounds to shed in order to look her best on the big day.
With that in mind, Tyler was quick to dig himself a hole in the latest episode. “Before Nova, Cate would never finish a plate,” he stated during a conversation with Catelynn. He kept bringing up the topic of weight loss throughout the episode until Catelynn finally had enough. “You’re horrible! When you say things that makes me not want to do it even more,” she told him.
However, the Teen Mom OG star went on to assure his future wife that he was only trying to be supportive. “Should I just let it happen and not say anything?” he asked Catelynn. “If there’s ways I can support you, I’ll do it. I just need to know how to do it.”
Despite his assurances on the show, Tyler has received plenty of criticism from fans about his comments and US Weekly has reported that he posted a note on Twitter in response to the negative reaction.
“My intention is to never hurt @CatelynnLowell I love her dearly & am just trying to support her through a sensitive subject #TeenMomOG,” he stated in the post. “It’s hard for a guy to talk to his girl about weight. It’s sensitive & I sincerely do my best to try & honor that.
Tyler’s comments come as the couple is preparing to finally tie the knot after a long relationship. In a clip published by People magazine from a recent episode of the reality show, Catelynn attempted to try on her wedding dress only to find out that she needed to drop a few sizes in order to fit into it. This fueled the discussion of weight, but also led to a determined Catelynn who is ready to shed those pounds.
In order to accomplish her goals, Catelynn plans on changing her diet and hitting the gym hard. With their wedding not scheduled until August, she should have plenty of time to get herself into tip top shape for the ceremony.
