Teen Mom OG couple Catelynn and Tyler Baltierra are celebrating 16 years together this month.
Catelynn and Tyler were first introduced to Teen Mom audiences in 2009 when they joined the cast of 16 and Pregnant. Later that year, the couple appeared on Teen Mom, which would later be known as Teen Mom OG.
Catelynn and Tyler’s journey was much different than others on the show, as they decided to place their firstborn daughter Carly up for adoption in 2009, shortly after her birth. They’ve since married and welcomed three more daughters, Novalee Reign, Vaeda Luma, and Rya Rose.
The middle school sweethearts, who met in seventh grade, are the only couple from the Teen Mom franchise who have remained together since their debut on the show, and this month, they’re celebrating a significant milestone.
Catelynn took to her Instagram over the weekend to commemorate the special day, sharing a carousel post including plenty of throwback photos of their early days as teenagers, all the way up to the present day with their daughters.
“16 years with my lover and best friend 😩😍👏💋 thank you for being YOU!” Catelynn captioned her share. “Thank you for loving me how I deserve to be loved! Thank you for always bringing out the good in me and always lifting me up!!! Here’s to a lifetime babe! ❤️ @tylerbaltierramtv.”
