Catelynn and the Adoptive Mom

Teen Mom, reality TV star Catelynn got married and the world watched with teary eyes as she exchanged her vows with Tyler and her birth daugther’s adoptive mom, Teresa, shared many beautiful moments of joy with her. We have watched this lovely open adoption relationship unfold before our eyes for several years.

Here comes the bride! Catelynn looked absolutely stunning on her wedding day, thanks in part to the help of Teresa Davis, the adoptive mother of Catelynn’s first daughter, Carly. In a tearful prenuptials moment, Teresa helped Cate adjust her veil, saying, “We are so proud of you. We just love you so much. Thank you for everything you’ve done to us. Thank you for letting us celebrate.”

Later, Catelynn and Tyler danced with Teresa and Carly, causing Maci, Amber and Kailyn to cry (along with the rest of America). Kailyn asked Cate if the beautiful moment was planned, and she revealed that it was totally spontaneous: “It was spur of the moment. Carly was like, ‘I wanna dance with Tyler.'” The moment was clearly important to Ty, who told Teresa, “This is the best day ever in my life.”
