Tyler Baltierra told his wife Catelynn Lowell he is separating from her after she announced her pregnancy. On this week’s Teen Mom OG, he insisted a reason they’re having marital issues is because he has only been with her and one other woman.
On the episode, Baltierra’s father Butch visited him from rehab. When asked if their daughter, who they are naming Tezlee, was planned, Baltierra responded, “F**k no!”
“I’m not going to bring no innocent kid into this s**t,” he said. “Does that stop or hinder the process we’re doing? Absolutely not. This new house is going to be done. Once that happens, that’s when we’re going to do our trial separation. We’re going to live separate.”
Baltierra then asked his son, “You’ve only been with two women and you’re 27 years old. Does that play a factor? Do you think about that? I wish I had been with more women?”
Baltierra shockingly responded, “Yeah! I want Cate when we were 20, 21, 19…”
Despite his regrets, he insisted he will figure out a way to be “supportive” without being “destructive” to himself.
“Is it weird not having Dakota coach your football?” Palin asked her son. “I don’t want you to be affected by anything that goes on. I want you to know if you want to have a relationship with him, I’m all for it. He was a big part of your life. If you miss him or if you want him to be part of your life you just tell me. Do you want to see Dakota? Or do you not care?”
Although her son was hesitant at first, he ultimately decided not to reach out to Meyer.
When a friend asked Meyer about his relationship with Tripp, he responded that he “loves Tripp to death” because he was his “first kid.” But he insisted it is up to Palin.
“I have no rights to him,” Meyer said. "I don’t call him because I don’t want to confuse him. I don’t know what his mom is telling him. I just worry if I reach out and try to build a relationship and go forward… I would be doing more harm than anything to him. I’m here if he needs me.”
Although Meyer was trying to protect her son with ex Levi Johnston, she insisted he is hurting him more.
“I think Tripp is a lot more hurt than he lets on,” Palin said. “He is so protective of me he doesn’t want anything to do with someone who’s done all this stuff that’s gone on. That was his dad for so long and now he’s out of his life. This affects more than his own kids… it affects Tripp too. My son is suffering. If he wanted a relationship with Tripp he would’ve already gone and got it.”
“He’s been really good,” Edwards’ mom Jen told Bookout. “He has his ups and downs of wanting to be home.”
Later on in the episode, Edwards’ wife Mackenzie gave birth to their son Jagger. Edwards missed the birth of his son, as Radar reported, but Skyped in.
Despite Bookout’s feud with Edwards and his wife, she vowed to make sure Bentley has a close relationship with his new half-brother.
“We’re going to do our best to make sure he has the chance to have the same relationship as he does Jade and Maverick,” Bookout said of her kids Jayde, 3, and Maverick, 2, with husband Taylor McKinney. "Your sibling is your ride or die. We’re adults. We can all put our bulls**t aside for them to spend time with their siblings.”
Also on the episode, Cheyenne Floyd and her baby daddy Cory Wharton were asked to be godparents at her sister’s baby shower.
“Corey we’re parents again,” she told him. “Now you’re really stuck with me!”
After seeing Wharton with her family, Floyd began to develop feelings for him.
“I love our relationship, I love how we parent, I love how we talk everyday,” she said. “At what point do I separate that verse my feelings for him? I don’t know what to do… I don’t know how to feel. My head is so mixed up.”
And finally Amber Portwood teaches her daughter Leah how to shave her legs. She asks Leah’s stepmother Kristina to help her.
“I thought it would be a good idea if Kristina was a part of it,” she said. “I am her mother. Kristina is not her mother, but she is a huge part of Leah’s life.”
After the mother-daughter moment, Portwood opened up about being “sad” that her daughter never wants to visit her anymore.
“I feel like my past creeps up behind me with her,” she said. “The damage I’m trying to fix is being there for her. Trying to stay healthy for her.”
As readers know, Portwood was in and out of rehab and prison throughout Leah’s life because of drug issues.
“I do understand my past and her dealing with all that stuff,” she said. "No matter what I’m still going to be here for her.”
