The 29-year-old father of four replied to his fan, “Wow…thank you so much for your kind words! Sometimes it’s hard not to question your significance & wonder if you’re doing anything right or good enough.”

Tyler’s dad Butch ended up marrying Catelynn’s mom April, technically making Tyler and Catelynn step-siblings. Butch and April later divorced, but Tyler and Catelynn were living with them under the same roof during their marriage.
Tyler and Catelynn recently opened up about the drug abuse they witnessed, as both Butch and April are recovering addicts.
“My mom and Tyler’s dad were kind of bad in addiction during that period of time,” Catelynn recently revealed during an interview.
During that time, Catelynn became pregnant with her and Tyler’s first daughter, Carly, whom they placed for adoption in 2009 shortly after her birth.
Since then, Tyler and Catelynn have gotten married welcomed three more daughters – Nova, 6, Vaeda, 2, and Rya Rose, three months.
