The dads on Teen Mom seem to come and go as often as their little tot’s diapers. So, it is refreshing to see Catelynn Lowell and her boyfriend Tyler Baltierra stay together through the pregnancy and beyond.
“We are meant to be,” Tyler tells Life & Style magazine. Catelynn added, “He’s my soul mate. Whatever I don’t have in me, he has.”
The couple’s daughter, Carly, was given up for adoption two years ago. Since then, the couple has remained strong and have since planned to get married in four years, after they both graduate from college. Both Catelynn and Tyler have decided to take their studies in the direction of kids.
“I want to get a degree to teach preschool through eighth grade,” says Catelynn, who will most likely be attending St. Clair County Community College in Port Huron, Mich. “And I’m going to take sign language classes so I can teach deaf children as well.” While Tyler isn’t planning teaching, he is planning on counseling kids at juvenile detention centers.
“Before I found out I was pregnant, I didn’t have any plans or goals,” Catelynn admits. “Carly just changed me.”
The couple say they want to have kids after they get married.
“I want four children,” Catelynn reveals, “And if I have a girl, I want to name her Rain!”
“I honestly can’t wait to be a father one day. The reasons Catelynn will make a great mom are endless. Her heart is warm, and her love is strong. She just has his connection with kids — they love her,” Tyler added.
The couple’s dream wedding would take place on a California cliffside over water. “That would be really cool,” Tyler says.
