Tyler Shares Heartfelt Poem
Tyler’s poem read,
“At first I must admit, I was terrified
Until I saw your face for the first time
I looked right down at you & said
‘Hi beautiful baby, I’m your dad!’
Your little hand around my pinky
gave me blissful peace
I was not expecting
& each day my pinky
gets a little too small
But you still hold on
which keeps me strong
I used to believe
I didn’t deserve you
But now I know where
I’ve always belonged
& it’s with you wrapped in my arms
Your head hovering over my heart
Our souls tethered together
Destined to never rip apart
For I know I can’t keep you here forever
So I promise to always be your shelter
No matter the weather
or the storms that may come from the wild dreams you chase after
Just know you’ll always have a safe place to warm up & feel taller…
& that’s right here
on your daddy’s shoulders
Because I’ll always be your protector
You’ll always be my daughter
& it’s my highest honor to be your father”
He added the hashtags, “#NovaleeReign, #GirlDad, #BlessedByDaughters.”

Tyler Says He Is “Grateful” for His Little Family
On August 4, Tyler took to Instagram to share a few family photos.
The “16 and Pregnant” alum shared four photos of his family enjoying their summer.
“I LOVE MY LITTLE FAMILY SO MUCH,” he wrote in the caption. “There’s not a day that goes by where I don’t catch myself, stopped dead in my tracks, just staring at all of their beautiful faces, while I have the biggest smile on my own, that I didn’t even realize was there, until I recognized what I was doing.”
The self-proclaimed “girl dad” went on to say that he feels blessed to be a father to “angelic girls” and a husband to a “gorgeous, strong[,] nurturing woman.”
Tyler ended the post by stating he is grateful for his family, writing, “I’m feeling super grateful today for this undeserving life I have received & I promise that I won’t ever take it for granted!”
