Catelynn Lowell’s post-baby body is a topic of conversation on this week’s episode of Teen Mom OG. In case you missed it, here are the videos.
On the episode, Catelynn has already lost 20 of the 60 pounds she gained while pregnant with baby Novalee Reign. Her wedding to fiance Tyler Baltierra is only a few months away. Catelynn goes to a wedding dress fitting. However, the dress is WAY too small post-baby. The clerk tells Catelynn she needs to lose about 4 dress sizes!
Later, Tyler makes some… suggestions about his fiancee’s weight and how she could lose some more.
“Before Nova, Cate would never finish a plate,” said Tyler.
“You’re horrible!” responded Catelynn. “When you say things that makes me not want to [diet and exercise] even more.”
To which Tyler responds, “Should I just let it happen and not say anything? If there’s ways I can support you, I’ll do it. I just need to know how to do it.”
Ever since the episode aired, Tyler has been criticised by some fans on Twitter.
Told by one fan, “@TylerBaltierra that was mean! i would punch you! your gonna make her insecure! #thatsmessedup your perfect the way you are @CatelynnLowell” Tyler responded, “Remember your watching a half hour convo cut down to 3 minutes. Cate desired to lose. I was just trying to support.”
He added that people who have read their book, Conquering Chaos, would have a better understanding of the couple’s communication style, “It does help to better understand the type of communication we have with each other #ConqueringChaos #TeenMomOG”.
Another fan defended Tyler, saying it’s his relationship so fan shouldn’t judge. He responded “For real though! I’m just trying to support her by being honest. I just get too blunt sometimes!” He then re-tweeed a few fans who agreed with what he did on this week’s episode (calling Catelynn out about her post-baby body after two months).
Complimented by another fan, he wrote, “I’m not that great of a catch. As you can see I can be too harsh with my words lol but I try #TeenMomOG”.
He added, “No sugarcoating, No BS, No beating around the bush. We just say how we feel, so we can work through it together!”
Co-star Amber Portwood offered Catelynn support on Twitter:
@AmberLPortwood right?! Ughhh lol love you!
