Teen Mom's Tyler Baltierra reveals daughter Carly, 12, 'had a hard time saying goodbye' after first reunion in two years
TYLER Baltierra revealed that his pre-teen daughter Carly "had a hard time saying goodbye" to her biological parents after their first reunion in two years.
The Teen Mom OG dad broke down in tears after the heartfelt day, where they were finally able to spend time with their daughter after the pandemic.
Tyler, 29, opened up about Carly's more "mature emotions" in a conversation with Us Weekly.
The reality star said their farewell "hit differently" as the 12-year-old has begun to truly understand the situation that they're in.
“She’s not a little kid. She’s 12. Like, she has more mature emotions,” he explained.
“She’s really understanding the situation that we’re in. For the first time I [saw] her have a hard time saying goodbye, which made me totally lose it.
"It’s a weird thing to want to [comfort her] naturally, organically, and then realize, ‘Oh, wait.’ You can’t because you’re not really raising her," the TV personality recalled.
"And those are her parents. It’s kind of crazy.”
Tyler then referred to adoption as an emotional “tug of war,” saying, “That’s adoption. That’s just how it is.”
MTV cameras captured the TV star and his wife Catelynn's reactions following their reunion with their daughter earlier this year who they placed up for adoption when she was born.
The parents reflected on their visit with the pre-teen on this week's episode after not seeing her for two years.
In the clip, the family reminisced over their day at the park with Carly before heading out for dinner with their firstborn and her adopted parents.
Tyler gushed over his eldest daughter calling her the "best babysitter" after watching her play with her younger siblings.
The couple then commented on how grown-up their daughter appeared, saying that she looked like a "little adult."
Catelynn, 29, had tears in her eyes as the two talked about her interaction with the 12-year-old where they discussed a letter that the mom-of-four sent to her.
"It is always hard to say 'goodbye,'" the young mom admitted as the clip scanned to a video montage of previous reunions the trio had in earlier seasons of the show.
Things got more emotional following the family's dinner as Tyler broke down in tears after saying "goodbye" to his daughter.
The scene showed the visibly upset father embracing their adoption counselor, Dawn as she consoled him.
"She adores you guys so much, you know that?," Dawn assured Tyler. "And you're going to be the only thing she thinks about and talks about for the next weeks."
"She's going to keep thinking back on these special times you guys had together. It's so meaningful to her," she continued.
Tyler stepped back interjecting, "it just never gets easier," to which Dawn responded, "you wouldn't be human if it did."
Tyler wiped his eyes as the family retreated back home.
OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT
While Carly's adoptive parents Brandon and Teresa have chosen to keep Carly out of the spotlight, the soon-to-be teen's original parents are happy just to remain a part of her life.
Catelynn told E!: "I think it's awesome to be able to show the journey of an open, semi-open adoption through the years and the ups and the downs and learning and navigating this relationship.
"I think it's super awesome that we can continue to do that in a way that can show our fans the journey but also in the way that it allows Carly's parents to feel comfortable with us sharing it as well."
The high school sweethearts are also parents to Novalee, six, Vaeda, two, and Rya, two months.
