We have just begun the new season of Teen Mom OG--but some drama has gone down since the new episodes were filmed. During last week's podcast of Coffee Convos, Kail Lowry and her co-host Lindsie Chrisley interviewed Tyler Baltierra, who confirmed that his father, Butch, has relapsed after celebrating over one year of sobriety.

Writing this with tears in my eyes because words can’t express the amount of peace & joy I feel in my heart. After seeing these two at their lowest & now seeing them sober & steadily climbing, I just can’t say enough how proud I am of both of them! I am a firm believer that the power of unconditional love in a family can truly transform the dynamic & I’m just so happy to call these two my family...I love you both SO MUCH & I’m SO PROUD OF YOU!!! @xoambularxo @baltierramtv #Family #Recovery #NeverGiveUp #Baltierras
Tyler and his wife, Catelynn Lowell, said that fans will still see Butch on Teen Mom OG. According to The Ashley, Tyler explained, "This season you’ll see me go down there a couple of times. He lives in Austin and he got out of rehab he did his sober living, all that stuff.”
Butch has struggled with addiction for many years and had admitted to using crack cocaine. But last season, Butch entered a rehab in Austin, Texas, and in Nov. 2018, he celebrated one year of sobriety.
Tyler and Catelynn mentioned that Butch is dating a new woman, Caroline, who has brought some conflict to the family dynamic.
As reported by The Ashley, Amber, Tyler's sister, opened up to MTV about her past sexual assault at the hands of her mother's previous boyfriend and in response, Caroline sent Amber some "disgusting" messages, Catelynn said.

This is my inspiration for everything! I love my family so much & there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for all of my girls! After this past year with our miscarriage, Cate’s mental health struggle, my dad & sister’s recovery, & my own mental health journey...I thought this pregnancy couldn’t have came at a more emotionally sensitive time for us. But life isn’t about convenient timing & destiny works in mysterious ways. I’m just so blessed that Vaeda’s destiny was to be right here in her mother’s arms, next to her big sister, who’s wrapped in her daddy’s arms...it’s a feeling that’s unexplainable! ?? #DaddysGirls ?: @four13photo & @brittnimariephotography
Allegedly, Caroline has even tried to get on the podcast. “[Caroline] went wild and, I’ll tell you right now, that’s the sign of relapse. So my dad dating a woman who is going to reach out to you guys, probably in a crazy, drunken state [is not good],” Tyler said.
Amber is still sober, and Tyler shared that he recently gave her a one-year sobriety chip. While Butch is still struggling, Tyler says that he is so proud of his sister.
