Kailyn Lowry is about to be a single mom of three and is the only young woman on the Teen Mom franchise to have completed a 4-year bachelor’s degree. However, that isn’t enough for the reality show star, she also plans to get a graduate degree after the birth of Baby Lo, her nickname for her unborn baby number 3.
The fiercely independent mother hasn’t stated what she’s going to get her graduate degree in, but likely in communications as that is what she got her bachelor’s degree in from Delaware State University.
The young mother celebrated her graduation recently, and last month did an adorable photoshoot with her sons, Isaac, 7, and Lincoln, 3, in her cap and gown. She opened up on her blog about how difficult it has been to go through everything she has and still finish her degree.
“If you follow any amount of the show, you know I’ve been struggling to get through school and earn my bachelor’s over the last 6 years… Yes, 6 years. Between teen motherhood, financial hurdles in the beginning, then moving to a new state, marriage, babies and divorce… and then of course just wanting to give up, I (barely) held on and I’m FINALLY graduating May 13! This has been an extremely long and emotional road for me and for my family.”
Although she plans to attend grad school, right now the reality star is focused on the birth of her third child. The Teen Mom 2 star has revealed that the father of the baby is Chris Lopez, a friend from Delaware State University. The pair met while studying and had a brief relationship, though it clearly didn’t last. Sources say that Kailyn Lowry wanted the two to have a long-lasting relationship that went the distance, but that Chris saw their relationship as one of convenience.
Kailyn Lowry was extremely reluctant about revealing the identity of the father of her third child, mostly because she wasn’t positive he would be in her child’s life. It turns out, she was right, as it has been reported that he has turned off his phone and that she is unable to reach him.
Some media outlets have speculated that the young mother will also be in the delivery room without him, as sources have stated that Chris won’t be attending the delivery of their child “out of spite.”
A source weighed in on the birth of Kailyn Lowry’s third baby and Chris’ participation.
“In the beginning, he helped when she needed him. Then they went their separate ways.
“She wants to give him the opportunity to see his child being born. She never said Chris couldn’t be involved with his child. She would hope he would want that, but she won’t force it or chase him to do so.
“Out of spite or anger she doesn’t think he will even show up for the birth. But she will tell him when she goes into labor so he can make that decision.”
Despite knowing that she may be going at this whole thing alone, Kailyn Lowry has been sharing adorable pictures of her with her baby bump as well as clothing and accessories she has been purchasing for her new little one.
She has stated that she doesn’t know the sex of the child and therefore everything planned is gender neutral.
Kailyn Lowry revealed on Twitter that she still hasn’t picked out a name for the baby, due in July.
Teen Mom co-star Briana DeJesus tweeted that she needed help picking a middle name for her unborn baby girl. Kailyn replied that she didn’t have a name for a child of either sex.
I really need help on a first name for a boy or girl ???? https://t.co/Cbzsdmt4bu
