Catelynn Lowell seems happier than ever since welcoming daughter Novalee Reign with husband Tyler Baltierra. But behind-the-scenes, the Teen Mom OG star has been struggling with postpartum depression.
“I recognized it nine months after Novalee, 11 months was born,” she told a fan during a December 10th book signing, In Touch reports. “It’s a daily struggle.”
In a trailer for season two of TMOG, Catelynn is seen crying and being unable to get out of bed. “To deal with the attacks, I have to get up and exercise,” she revealed.
Catelynn has also been going to therapy once a week to help combat the illness.
Luckily for Cate, she has had her husband’s support throughout the ordeal. “He’s definitely helping me,” she gushed. “I’m doing much better now.”
