Teen Mom OG star Lowell slammed divorce speculation. “It just proves to people like, ‘Yeah, we’re getting a divorce?’ but look we’re pregnant,” she told Radar.
Lowell explained why she believed her relationship was a target. “I think it’s because people can’t believe that a relationship can last through everything we’ve been through,” she said. “If you watch all the Teen Moms, none of them are together with their original baby daddy.”
She continued, "It’s hard for people to believe in a couple that can stick it out and figure stuff out even when things do get hard.”
Lowell explained how unlike other couples, they aren’t going to “wipe our hands clean” amid marital struggles. “That’s not how it works,” she said.
Now expecting another baby, Lowell told Radar the secret to her marriage. “You work through it and if you’re going to go through rough times with this person and it’s all about how you take care of it,” she said.
Baltierra opened up about their relationship too. “As you will see when this season airs, Cate and I are going through some marital issues and being pregnant with a new baby isn’t going to magically make those issues disappear,” he told Radar. “Those issues have to be worked through together as a couple.”
Baliterra defended his marriage to Lowell. “I think people just want to pick apart something because they have such a hard time believing that what we have is authentic,” he said. “They have a hard time understanding a representation of a relationship that vulnerably puts ALL their problems out into the public with no filter, but yet still love, respect & honor each other.”
He slammed fans who questioned his relationship. “People who don’t understand something or believe it to be true will craft any reason to validate their beliefs and opinions about it,” he continued.
Baltierra told Radar why he thinks they are a target. “I think they mostly pick it apart because it’s easier for them to challenge our relationship than it is to look in the mirror and challenge their own when they ask themselves, “Why isn’t my relationship like that? Why do me and my significant other not communicate like that?’”
“Bottom line is this...we have NOTHING to prove to anyone!” Baltierra told Radar.
Now that they are expecting another child, he told Radar that their love is stronger than ever. “We love each other, we support each other, and we are committed to each other, regardless of the hard times life may throw our way,” he said.
“If people have such a hard time believing that, then maybe that says more about them and how they manage their relationships than it does about the authenticity of ours,” Baltierra told Radar.
