Tyler Baltierra relived the heartbreaking moment he placed his eldest daughter with Catelynn Lowell, Carly, up for adoption since the 16 & Pregnant episode aired. But the Teen Mom OG star wasn’t watching the scene alone, as his youngest daughter, Novalee, watched along with him.
“All I can say is wow...this ended up on my tv today & it was so crazy to see Nova just stop & stare at the screen,” he captioned a video of his 11-month-old daughter watching the episode. “I haven't watched it since it premiered. It's just way too hard. I still can't believe how strong, selfless, and courageous of a wife I have. I am so blessed to have her as the mother of my children...I love you @catelynnmtv more than you will ever know. Your are a representation of what a mother is & how a mothers love is so sacrificial...your my angel.”
But Tyler didn’t stop there, as he continued to gush over his wife and defend his decision to place their eldest daughter with another couple. “Seriously after watching that for the first time in 6 years I am overwhelmed with emotion,” he began. “We were just kids & didn't know what else to do besides what was best for Carly. I am so honored to be able to call that woman my wife now...if anyone watches this & thinks she is anything less than strong, beautiful, courageous, loving, caring, compassionate, or selfless...you can unfollow me, because that woman right there is the epitome of beauty & strength...the beauty of her heart is immeasurable, & the strength of her selfless soul is untouchable.”

He ended the post with, “There are literally not enough words to express how amazing I think she is. I wish the world could experience the love & connection we share with each other. Suffering builds character...& my wife has the character of a warrior angel.”
Tyler and Catelynn placed their 6-year-old daughter with adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa Davis in 2009. They welcomed their second daughter, Novalee, on New Year’s Day.
