Lowell followed up her husband’s post with her own tweet, writing, “For everyone that thinks I’m so ‘strong,’ I’m really not… one day you will know why. I can also be very weak.”
The mother of two later added, “You guys have NO CLUE on how much you lift me up sometimes.”
Without revealing what had sparked these comments, Baltierra concluded, “For better or for worse…through sickness & in health… I will NEVER stop fighting for my wife. Keep her in your prayers…thank you.”
The couple has been through many ups and downs throughout their 10-year relationship. In 2009, they placed their daughter Carly for adoption on the show 16 and Pregnant, remaining a part of the little girl’s life and working with her adoptive parents. Then on New Year’s Day of 2015, they welcomed their daughter Novalee. The pair wed this past August after previously postponing their nuptials due to Baltierra’s last-minute concerns, which were outlined on VH1’s Couples Therapy.
Lowell has also suffered from post-partum depression, which was documented on the most recent season of Teen Mom OG.
