Catelynn jokes she "totally cheated" on her husband as the "Teen Mom" stars clap back at "ridiculously asinine comments."
Tyler Baltierra was just trying to be a proud papa by sharing a new photo of his newborn baby girl, but quickly sprung into defensive mode after some nasty Instagram comments.
On Wednesday afternoon, the "Teen Mom OG" star posted an image of one-month-old Vaeda to his page, adding, "Vaeda is a month old this week & idk how it's possible, but she keeps getting cuter!"
More than a few of his followers, however, had other things to say about the baby's appearance. At least one of them said he should take a genetic test to confirm the kid is his, something Catelynn indirectly responded to in the comments.
"Sorry babe I totally cheated and Vaedas not urs," she wrote, adding some crying emojis and the hashtags #peoplearecrazy and #comeon.
Tyler wrote a lengthier response to all the trolls.
"Wow. I'm actually just appalled at the ridiculous asinine comments about my newborn," he posted. "We live in a world that is so divided, judgmental, self righteous & opinionated ... & unfortunately it's very evident with these comments."
"Respectful maturity is having a strong opinion and voicing it when necessary," he continued. "Disrespectful IMMATURITY is having a strong opinion and voicing it when it is NOT NECESSARY. Your deity knows all of your thoughts...but evil can only hear what comes out of your mouth."
He concluded, "Live with love & speak with peace or karma is not going to be your ally, I can guarantee that."
Since they posted, a number of their fans have hopped to the couple's defense, saying the baby looks just like her older sister Novalee and that Tyler has some "strong DNA."
