Time to take a magical trip to 2004. A wonderful time where Uggs, velour track suits, and Von Dutch trucker hats reigned supreme. Believe it or not, our favorite Teen Mom stars were mere middle schoolers back in these formative times — and you know what that means! Time for a throwback photo, friends.
The lucky lady in question? None other than Teen Mom's Catelynn Lowell! This gal recently shared a photo of her seventh grade self to fans on Instagram, and guys? It's amazing. Not only does Cate look completely adorable with straw-blond hair and a pretty nerdy array of necklaces, this is what she looked like when she and her fiance, Tyler Baltierra, first met a whopping 10 years ago!
"This is in seventh grade when [Tyler] & I first started dating," she posted along with the picture. “Longgg time ago."
Catelynn and Tyler met in a music class shortly after Tyler transferred to her school, and let's just say it was love at first sight. "I have loved her since the moment I saw her," Tyler said in an old blog post.
"Her punk rocker hair and attitude matched perfectly for my edgy, hyper personality. I asked her why she fell in love with me and I quote, 'you could always make me laugh.'"
Be still our beating hearts! It's amazing to think of what Catelynn and Tyler have been through since this photo was taken — not only did they get pregnant and place their child with a wonderful adoptive family, they got engaged, bought a home, and are now trying for another baby!
What do you think of Cate's throwback photo? Could she be cuter?!
