He's defending his wife! There's no doubt that Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra absolutely loves his wife Catelynn Lowell, so it would make sense that he would come to her defense after trolls made fun of her because of her mental health issues. Tyler took to Twitter after fans sent him screenshots of comments that podcaster Noel Harlow made about Cate's battle with depression and suicidal thoughts, and Ty hit back in the classiest way.
"This is the most ignorant, vile [and] insensitive thing I have ever seen. To mock my wife’s suicidal ideation [and] depression is just sickening to the core! @THEVinceRusso @RussosBrand @RealityTSpiller you’re part of the reason mental health has the stigma it does #KeepTalkingMH," the 26-year-old wrote.

Tyler wrote in response to screenshots that a fan sent him of comments that Noel made on social media where she made fun of Cate slipping back into her depression and mocked her for attempting to use equine therapy as an alternative to helping her control her symptoms. "She forgot to to pay her dues to the depression club this month LOL," Noel wrote, adding a meme that read "Depression Club — Brush a horse. "
But Ty didn't let Noel get away with making fun of his wife, especially since Cate struggles with a very real mental health issue. Cate is currently in rehab for a third time as she attempts to find a treatment that will help her overcome her battle with depression, and Tyler visited her at the facility over the weekend. He took to Instagram to gush over how proud he is of his wife for being brave enough to seek help.

Marriage & relationships aren’t always sunshine & rainbows. I believe love begins as a feeling, but evolves into a choice. A choice to sacrifice for that person, a choice of dedicated commitment to one another & understanding the selfless acts that are required from both to maintain serenity ✌🏻#Marriage #Soulmates #MyWife
"Seeing this gorgeous woman [and] all the work she has done has given me such hope, a feeling of peace, and unconditional love that is hard to explain with words," he wrote. "I’m so proud of you babe [and] I can’t wait until you finally come home."
