The new season of Teen Mom OG is set to premiere on MTV Monday night, and fans are excited to catch up with the cast, including Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra. On the last season of the show, fans learned that the longtime couple had decided to do live separately. According to Us Weekly, a sneak peek for the season premiere shows Catelynn opening up about the separation and revealing that she thinks it was “good” for her.

“I think it was good for me, looking back at it now, realizing if he ends up wanting to divorce me, I guess, whatever. I’ll be sad but I don’t f**king need you. I can do this on my own.”

Together, Catelynn and Tyler have two daughters at home. They care for 4-year-old Novalee and their newborn daughter, Vaeda. However, if she were to be a single mom, Catelynn revealed that she could do it.

“If you were to leave, I could be a mom and be a bada** mom and not even give a s***,” Catelynn said.

Catelynn then makes a stunning revelation about her relationship with Tyler.

“I want you forever but I don’t need you.”

Viewers were introduced to Catelynn and Tyler on their Season 1 episode of 16 and Pregnant. On the episode, the couple found out they were expecting a daughter together. The young couple made the hard decision to place their daughter up for adoption.
