Lookin’ good, fam! Tyler Baltierra took to Instagram on Tuesday, January 24, to share a sweet update about his father and sister. The two have been battling addiction for years, but now it seems as though they’re happy and healthy. Keep scrolling to see how the Teen Mom OG stars are doing today.
“After seeing these two at their lowest & now seeing them sober & steadily climbing, I just can’t say enough how proud I am of both of them!” he continued. “I am a firm believer that the power of unconditional love in a family can truly transform the dynamic & I’m just so happy to call these two my family…I love you both SO MUCH & I’m SO PROUD OF YOU!!! @xoambularxo@baltierramtv#Family#Recovery#NeverGiveUp#Baltierras.”
Despite being a good dad to daughter Novalee (and his soon-to-be baby girl), Tyler’s father was the epitome of an absentee parent when he was growing up. After someone complimented him on being a good dad despite his upbringing, he — in a very roundabout way — gave credit to Butch.
Not long before that, he served four years on home invasion, larceny and breaking and entering charges. He was released from prison in August 2015, just in time to attend Tyler’s wedding to Catelynn Lowell.
Despite their rocky relationship, Tyler trusts his father from time to time and has often been criticized for it. In 2017, Tyler and Catelynn went on a romantic getaway to Puerto Rico and left their then two-year-old, Nova, with Butch.
“These two. They are my rock,” Ty’s big sis captioned a photo at the time with her son and daughter. “Mommy loves you more than you guys may know right now … You both deserve nothing but the best, and I will give that to you. I’m gonna miss you these 90 days. Just know I love you both with every fiber in me.”
