Teen Mom OG's Catelynn Baltierra is dealing with a lot right now. Fans watched as her husband, Tyler Baltierra, talked about wanting a separation, and sadly the trolls have come out attacking her online. Let's remember that Catelynn is pregnant and due in March with her third child. The couple have 3-year-old Nova together, as well as daughter Carly, who they placed for adoption but maintain a relationship with. Regarding the horrible things people were saying about her, Catelynn rose above and sent a very powerful message. 

  • Catelynn didn't mince words.

    On Wednesday, Catelynn shared this message “Some of u people disgust me. How can we treat other women with such hate & nasty words? Especially when they’re carrying a child!!! No wonder I didn’t use social media 4 the longest time. At least I can go 2 sleep knowing I’m not an evil, vile person.” 

    Apparently Catelynn was being attacked so badly that she disabled comments on some of the posts.

  • On this post, however, Catelynn received a lot of support.

    On that same post, she also wrote in the caption: “Why can’t we lift one another instead of feeling the need to be so rude and disgusting?Thank god my girls will be taught to speak kindly to other people and stand up for themselves. THANK YOU to all of my supporters. You all rock!!!”   

    Her supporters expressed love and encouragement not to let the "losers & miserable trolls" get her down.

  • Things were so bad that even Tyler took to Instagram to try to stop the haters.

    "Real queens fix each others crown," begins Tyler's message. It's clear he is trying to say that Catelynn doesn't deserve the hate coming her way and it's his attempt to get people to be kinder. The comments on Tyler's post are a mixed bag. There is support but also naysayers who think the marriage isn't going to last.

    One Teen Mom insider reportedly told HollywoodLife.com, "Tyler is still Catelynn’s biggest supporter and defender, taking time apart hasn’t changed that. Catelynn has been getting a lot of hateful messages through social media, the trolls have really been going after her harder than ever since the news about their separation came out. Tyler feels extra bad because he’s not right by her side to help her through it, that’s very hard."

  • This is, however, still just a separation.

    Relationships can be complicated, and these two are navigating complications to the best of their ability right now. They should be commended. 

    As far as what we see on the show, they haven't physically separated yet. Their new home is being finished, and once it is, Tyler will move in while Catelynn and Nova will stay at the old place for a little bit. Apparently, Tyler hasn't been happy and the couple needs some space. He has been very open about his feelings in the past.

    But the good news is that Cate and Tyler still go to couple's therapy together and go on dates. Sometimes a bit of space is good and needed. 

    Reflecting on the separation in real time, Tyler said, “We call it 30 days of self-reflection -- just positive terminology here. It’s funny because we actually don’t even call it separation anymore.”

    Catelynn is due in March, and she and Tyler already picked out a name for their daughter -- Tezlee. Some say that this is all so things are good between them once Tezlee arrives. So far, it does seem like things are going well.

    We wish them nothing but the best.
