Lowell also clarified that she is not going to a rehab facility on Twitter, but would not divulge why she is seeking help. On the past season of Teen Mom OG, the mother of two struggled with postpartum depression.
Her husband and longtime love, Tyler Baltierra, also opened up on Twitter about his wife’s difficult decision to leave home. After co-star Amber Portwood reached out to the pair, offering her love, Baltierra replied, “We love ya too Amb...its just hard to see her go through all this & be away from her for so long.”
Portwood, who previously struggled with substance abuse and spent a stint in jail to help stay clean, replied, “@TylerBaltierra @CatelynnLowell I know babe you will see her soon and I'm coming out in a couple weeks. Stay strong. Love you.”
Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans also reached out to Lowell on Twitter, writing, “@CatelynnLowell good for you girl! You have all the support in the world you need to get better. Rooting for you over here on this end.”
Fans became concerned on Tuesday when Lowell posted a series of troubling tweets, writing, “For everyone that thinks I’m so ‘strong’ I’m really not… one day you will know why. I also can be very weak.”
Baltierra added, “Please just pray for my wife… 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 together for more than 10 years and married this past August. They share daughter Novalee, 14 months, and placed their first daughter Carly for adoption in 2009.
