It’s not easy being the child of an addict, and no one knows that better than Teen Mom stars Kailyn Lowry, Tyler Baltierra, and Catelynn Lowell. Back in August 2018, the three got together to record an episode of Kail’s podcast, Coffee Convos, and talk about their relationships with their parents. Now, all those feelings are coming back up — and Tyler is crediting his friend with being “a survivor” following her difficult childhood. Check out the gallery to see the heartfelt messages the stars shared with each other.
She was thinking about trying to find her mom to reconnect, but it was a complicated issue. “I’m OK with her not being in my life, but now, I have three kids,” she shared on her podcast Coffee Convos. “I want my kids to have a grandma on my side. But I don’t know if I can handle it. When my mom’s sober, she’s such a good person. She’s a good time, so I want my kids to experience that.”
“If you didn’t come from our type of childhood & experience the dynamics we had with our parents growing up, you just don’t understand how hard it is to navigate that relationships as an adult. You’re a survivor, @KailLowry.”
Back in August, she opened about how celebrating Lux’s first birthday made her feel like she’s missing some of the important people in her life. “I was like, ‘I don’t have a family,” she said. “My sister didn’t come [to the party], my mom didn’t come, I don’t even have a dad.”
