Who says you cannot find your soulmate at the young age? Catelynn and Tyler started dating in the seventh grade when they were studying at the same high school. When a friend asked about his relationship, Tyler explained,
“I have loved her since the moment I saw her. Her punk rocker hair and attitude matched perfectly for my edgy, hyper personality. I asked her why she fell in love with me. You could always make me laugh."

Teen Catelynn and Tyler
Catelynn found out about her pregnancy at the age of 16 and Tyler was there to support her. Because of the lack of financial support and parenting skills, they had to give their daughter for adoption. According to the source, "Catelynn found the idea of giving her baby up for adoption scary, but the prospect of parenting even scarier.
While talking about adoption, she said:
"I want my daughter to have a chance at life. I just don't want her to be raised the way that she's going to be raised."
Catelyn's first daughter was born in 2010, but unfortunately, Catelyn had to make a hard decision of giving her child for adoption. Brandon and Theresa adopted her both children (a daughter she gave birth to and a son she adopted).
Catelynn met her daughter and adopted son several times during the shows, but the proper reunion finally happened after ten years in an episode of Teen Mom OG.
