Kailyn Lowry is doing her best to stay positive as she prepares for the upcoming birth of her third child.
Although the Teen Mom 2 star and her baby daddy, Chris Lopez, are no longer on speaking terms, the longtime reality star appears to be focused on her family and recently enjoyed a fun night out with her two sons, 7-year-old Isaac and 3-year-old Lincoln.
“Mother son dance,” Kailyn Lowry wrote in the caption of a photo shared on Instagram over the weekend.
Kailyn Lowry shares oldest son Isaac with her ex-boyfriend, Jo Rivera, who also has a younger daughter with fiancée Vee Torres, and shares her youngest son Lincoln with her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin. As Teen Mom 2 fans will recall, Kailyn Lowry announced she and Marroquin were calling it quits on their marriage after just three years in May 2016.
Just before she and Marroquin split, Kailyn Lowry was seen telling her then-husband on Teen Mom 2 that she was no longer willing to expand their family. Then, just months after confirming plans for divorce, Kailyn Lowry got pregnant with the baby of Chris Lopez, who she dated only briefly after revealing plans for divorce.
While a timeline of Lowry and Lopez’s relationship was never revealed, the reality star is believed to have gotten pregnant sometime in November and by February, she and Lopez had ended their relationship.
Kailyn Lowry announced her pregnancy on her blog on February 23.
“Please know this was a choice I made, I already know some won’t agree but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out,” she wrote to her fans and followers at the time.
Kailyn Lowry went on to address her comments to Javi Marroquin about not wanting to have more kids.
“Of course, I was filmed on the show saying I didn’t want any more kids but I’m pregnant again. I know so many will have comments on this but here’s the thing — I didn’t want to bring another child into a failing marriage,” she said.
According to Kailyn Lowry, she began having some sort of health complications and the option of expanding her family was nearly taken away from her. Shortly thereafter, she began to reconsider having more children and knew she wanted more.
“This was the choice I made. This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure if I could have,” she wrote. “I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay. And like I say in my book — with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything. Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait. My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited, and I hope that everyone can just be happy for me during this time.”
For months after her pregnancy reveal, Kailyn Lowry chose to keep the name of her third baby daddy a secret. Then, earlier this month, after OK! Magazine posted a tweet regarding a DNA test and asked if Chris Lopez was her child’s father, Kailyn Lowry confirmed he was.
Prior to her reveal, Lopez hinted that he was expecting a child with the Teen Mom 2 star when he posted a tweet about a “miracle child.”
Kailyn Lowry and her co-stars, including Jenelle Evans, Leah Messer, and Chelsea Houska are currently in production on the upcoming eighth season of Teen Mom 2.
