Lowell and Baltierra have been stars of MTV’s hit reality show Teen Mom for over 10 years. They share three daughters together.  Their eldest Carly (who was adopted at birth) featured on MTV’s 16 & Pregnant. Lowell and Baltierra are founders of Tierra Reign, a children’s clothing company. The two also published a book titled Conquering Chaos. The book, which talks about their experience placing their first daughter up for adoption, and their struggle to cope with family problems. The childhood sweethearts rose above the dysfunction to become responsible adults whose story has inspired many others. 

Baltierra recently appeared on The Awesome Dad Show podcast to talk about mental health, social media, fatherhood and how his daughter’s are “set up for life” financially, but this might not actually be the case.

“As far as getting compensated for the show, my kids are set for life, financially. College is paid for and that was mine and Catelynn’s main thing—each of our children has trust funds that money goes into and they can’t touch,” the 28-year-old shared on The Awesome Dad Show podcast. “I have so much confidence and peace in how we’re raising my children, they will be humble and will know the sacrifices we made.”
