Amber Baltierra, sister of “Teen Mom” star Tyler Baltierra, swore in a relationship with Carly, the daughter he put up for adoption in 2009 at the age of 17.
Baltierra and his wife, Catelynn Lowell, were the only parents in the Teen Mom franchise to relinquish their parental rights upon the birth of their child.
“My niece is 13 today, y’all. Happy birthday carly. I can’t wait to have a relationship with you. Make today the best day yet” She wrote via Facebook on 18.
Amber Baltierra faced some backlash from fans, who said it was “inappropriate” to make such a promise to Carly.
She shared an article by The sun about the criticism, but only focused on one line from the story, which claimed Amber Baltierra had spent almost three weeks in prison.
“Okay, who went to jail for 20 days as Amber Baltierra?!? At least tell me if we did well or if we were someone’s sluts,” she wrote on Facebook on May 22nd.
Carly’s parents – Brandon and Teresa Davis – opted for a semi-open adoption with Baltierra and his wife Catelynn Lowell Baltierra.
That means the MTV personalities are allowed to keep in touch with Carly through phone calls and letters, but aren’t able to visit her whenever they want.
Carly is also not allowed to appear on Teen Mom or social media, which has caused tension between the Baltierras and the Davis in the past.
Baltierra & Lowell posted public birthday messages to Carly
The Baltierras send an annual birthday message to Carly, and 2022 was no exception.
Baltierra chose to celebrate Carly’s special day with a poem.
“I never wanted to let you go. I hope you understand. I wanted to hold you in my arms forever” he wrote part of his message. “I promise we’ll dance again. But until that day comes, I will see you in my dreams.”
Lowell shared a collage of photos taken on the day Carly was born.
“Happy 13th birthday Carly!!! We love you deeply and pray that you have the time of your life today and every day! We always think of you,” she wrote.
Baltierra & Lowell are no longer having children
Baltierra went on to have three more children after welcoming Carly in 2009.
The couple, who have been married since 2015, are parents to 7-year-old Nova, 3-year-old Vaeda and 8-month-old Rya Rose.
Though they were vocal about having a baby boy, the MTV stars gave up on their dream after it was revealed that Rya was their fourth girl
Baltierra and Lowell revealed that the girl’s father had undergone a vasectomy, a form of male birth control.
Lowell wrote that her husband “took one for the team” by undergoing the surgery.
Baltierra said he was only doing his part.
“If ANYONE took one for the team, it’s YOU! Her amazing body carried and delivered 4 beautiful babies, all I had to do was an injection and 2 cuts!” he wrote on Instagram. “However, once I found out what the song was, I was dyyyiiinngg lmao I love you!!!”
