It’s been almost two weeks since Butch Baltierra, father of Teen Mom OG star Tyler Baltierra, was released from prison, but he’s already made a major life change. Last week Butch, who appeared on every ‘Teen Mom’ season except for the most-recent “OG” version, decided to cut off his trademark salt-and-pepper-colored mullet!
Yes kids, you read that correctly: Butch has cut off his mullet!
The Ashley will give you all a moment to regain your composure.
On August 13, Butch posted his plan to cut his infamous locks to his private Facebook account. He stated that it was part of his post-prison rejuvenation.
“It’s going down today, the big hair cut day,” Butch wrote. “Out with the old in with the new.”
If you’re wondering what happened to Butch’s long locks, he stated that he gave them to his daughter Amber Baltierra.
After shedding his mane, Butch posted to Facebook that he is now a changed man, inside and out.
“You’re lookin at a new and improved man,” he wrote. “Feeling like a million bucks.”
Butch’s makeover comes just in time to make him look extra-spiffy at his son Tyler’s wedding to Catelynn Lowell, which will take place this weekend. Tyler recently posted photos to his Instagram account showing Butch getting fitted for his wedding tuxedo.
Before his release on August 6, Butch had been serving a lengthy prison sentence for violating his parole a few years ago. He seems to be enjoying his freedom: he recently met his granddaughter, Nova, for the first time, and has joined Twitter. He appears to finally be trying to go down the right path for his family, and according to his tweets, is clean and sober.
“Living this new clean & sober life is the best decision I have ever made! No more distorted perceptions,” he wrote. “It’s been a long tough journey but it’s prepared me for the fight. I am not defined by my sickness.”
Tyler seems to be thrilled to have his dad back in his life.
“Dad I couldn’t be happier for you!” Tyler tweeted. “I love you & can’t wait for you to see the life you have been missing.”
“Thanks son, I love you & my new grandbaby,” Butch replied to Tyler. “Thanks for everything you have done for me. I know what real love feels like now.”
While The Ashley was quite the fan of the salt-and-pepper mullet, she must say that Butch is looking great! Keep up the good work!
