Fans of Teen Mom 2‘s Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have a lot of information to take in.
Lowell and Baltierra hit the Teen Mom Facebook page to post videos answering their fans’ questions, and a lot of what they said in their answers was surprisingly candid.
For example, we now know that these two plan on making their family significantly larger. Answering a fan’s question about whether more kids are in their future, Baltierra revealed that four is his magic number.
“We want a big family, but we’re scared,” Lowell explained before Baltierra interrupted, “I want a big family. I’m scared, but I want it,” as Lowell agreed.
In one of their most-viewed responses, the couple answers a fan’s question about whether their first daughter, whose adoption was chronicled on 16 and Pregnant, knows who her real parents are.
“Well, actually, Brandon and Theresa [the adoptive parents] are her ‘real’ parents,” Lowell replies. “None of us are cardboard or a piece of paper.”
Baltierra adds, “I know it’s not your fault, because people don’t really know the terminology when it comes to adoption. But when you say stuff like ‘real parents,’ that’s pretty much a jab at Brandon and Theresa.”
Lowell and Baltierra have been dating since they were in high school, but only decided to tie the knot in August, after they’d been dating for a full decade. In another video, they explain why they’re glad they took their time getting down the aisle.
“Us waiting, going to therapy really helped us out,” Baltierra admits. “It helped us figure out what our long-term goals were in life and if we could achieve those goals being together.”
Adds Lowell, “We did a lot of things for ourselves in that time. When you want to be in a committed, serious relationship, you need to work on yourself, too.”
