What's the point of Instagram if you don't use the filters? That's basically what Tyler Baltierra, fiance of Teen Mom OG's Catelynn Lowell, is probably thinking right now after a ton of followers called him out for drastically editing Instagram pics of their four-month-old daughter, Novalee.
But always one to voice his opinions, Ty took to Instagram to post an unedited photo of his little girl to prove that she's just as cute without a filter.
"Wow! For all of you people who, for some reason, can't understand why someone would edit a picture on "Instagram" here is an untouched, not edited picture," Tyler wrote along with this unaltered photo of a picture-perfect Nova. The fans have a point, though—a filter is not necessary when the subject is that adorable!
Tyler continued, "Some of you people seriously have no life haha! Literally lol at how petty some of you ppl are #HopeYourHappy #ActuallyIDont #ItsInstagramPeople." It's pretty obvious that Tyler alters some of his photos before posting them—Nova's eyes look exceptionally enhanced in this photo, for example—but as Tyler said, it's really not a big deal at all.
And as the new and filter-less photo proves, Nova's eyes are blue no matter how you slice it.
Catelynn, on the other hand, prefers to keep her social media photos of Nova a bit more real-looking, opting for natural lighting instead of color-changing effects. But that's probably because she knows the drill by now and didn't feel like having to explain to 1.2 million followers why her baby looks like a cartoon in photos. Make sense!
Do you think it's a big deal that Tyler alters his photos of Nova? Are you glad he acknowledged it and proved how cute she is without the filters? Tweet us @OKMagazine.
