Teen Mom OG’s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have been banned from sharing photos on social media of the daughter they put up for adoption. Now, the child’s adoptive parents explain why they put that rule in place.
Catelynn and Tyler have repeatedly talked badly on social media about the people who adopted their daughter, Carly, a couple named Brandon and Teresa Davis. Catelynn and Tyler have addressed the couple as mere minders and insisted on having more rights as the child’s biological parents.
On the most recent episode of Teen Mom OG, Catelynn and Tyler are shown discussing the rules banning the posting of private, new photos of Carly on social media. They discuss why it’s banned, why it would be a bad idea to do it and what the consequences might be. But Tyler posts the photos anyway.
According to reports from last month, Brandon and Teresa got tired of telling Catelynn and Tyler to stop sharing the photos and private information on Carly’s life. As it’s against how the adoptive parents choose to raise her. Catelynn has repeatedly denied any drama. Explaining that their communication is a work in progress. Even admitting to making “selfish” decisions about the child she gave up for adoption in 2009.
In a new preview from Teen Mom OG, Teresa explains why she does not want her adopted daughter’s birth parents violating any more rules of the open adoption.
“We don’t really want anyone else posting pictures of our children,” Teresa says (via Us Weekly). When called out for doing press and talking about Carly in the media too, Teresa insists, “We have a platform to speak on adoption from an adoptive parent perspective that nobody else has.”
“The baby biologically is yours, but in every other way, she is our child and you have to trust our decisions,” Teresa added.
