Seeing this gorgeous woman & all the work she has done has given me such hope, a feeling of peace, and unconditional love that is hard to explain with words. It was a very emotionally intense Family Week Program, but I know that our love & commitment towards each other will persevere through anything this life throws our way. I’m so proud of you Babe & I can’t wait until you finally come home so I can just hug you & hold you for as long as I want. You are worthy...You are strong...You are beautiful...You are loved! Thank you for not giving up on your life @catelynnmtv #MyBabe #Soulmate #MyWife
The couple was filmed facing a rocky moment when 26-year-old Tyler Baltierra admitted to his pregnant wife that he wasn't 'happy' in their marriage.
Catelynn recently returned from battling mental health issues in a rehabilitation facility, leaving their three-year-old daughter Novalee under her father's care.
All you ignorant people are the reason why mental health still has this huge stigma around it! #GetEducated #KeepTalkingMH you have NO clue unless you have been through it yourself. Some of you people disgust me

Although the announcement of them living separately may not appeal in the current situation, the couple is actually using it as an exercise to help better cope with their recent marital troubles.
Seriously...the best feeling as a father...is to watch pure joy light up on the face of his daughter! https://t.co/7uxpZqQcIF
