Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra are our favorite Teen Mom couple, and it's all because of the incredible sacrifice they made for their adorable baby gal. These two were unable to give Carly the kind of life she deserves (Butch's mullet isn't exactly a good influence), and despite bitch-slaps from their parents, they put their little lady up for adoption.
The moment was heartbreaking, hopeful, and a major tear-jerker, but it also put Carly's adoptive parents, Brandon and Teresa Davis, into the spotlight. So, do these two have any regrets? No way!
“In retrospect, we are glad that they were part of the show,” Brandon tells LifeLines Magazine. “We are thankful that it has really given Catelynn and Tyler great purposes in life. Catelynn and Tyler have told their story, and it has changed lives. We hope and pray that it has saved lives too. We are thankful that Catelynn and Tyler were a part of the show and that we are a small part, even if it saves one life.”
Brandon and Teresa might love themselves some Teen Mom, but they have a hard time watching the show itself.
“It has been very hard that our adoption has been very public,” Teresa explains. “We watch what our birthparents are going through on TV. It’s something I would expect birthparents to go through while dealing with their grief and loss but it’s still hard to see and process it.”
Catelynn, Tyler, Carly, Brandon, and Teresa get to see each other on the regular, so hopefully they'll be able to work through these issues. Keep your fingers crossed that the whole gang can reunite for Cate and Tyler's wedding!
