Lowell's healthy relationship and the trust that she and Baltierra share has helped her to ignore the hurtful messages from online haters. However, it was not always so easy to turn the other cheek.

"When I was younger, I would get super-upset about it," she confessed.

So, how does she feel now?

"Honestly, I'm so secure in our relationship, I know Tyler isn't going to run off and do things or talk back to them. I laugh it off!" she said. "We're open and honest with one another. We've worked on that for years. [Couple's Therapy] really helped us a lot."
