Teen Mom 2‘s Kailyn Lowry gave birth to her third child with her third baby daddy early last month, but she hadn’t revealed the child’s name until what some fans thought was today. The reality TV star stated that she had a hard time coming up with a real name for the child, which she dubbed “Baby Lo” before his delivery and for five weeks after his birth because none of the names she had been interested in seemed to suit him.
Unfortunately for fans, Kailyn Lowry still hasn’t named her child, though a hoax circulated through the internet Wednesday that she had given him the moniker Murphy Nixon. Fans were not necessarily surprised by the news, especially since she had included both names on a Twitter poll when trying to decide what to name him. Although many believed the hoax, it turns out it was just that. Rumors have also swirled that Kail has named him St. Thomas, but thus far, the young mother has not yet revealed Baby Lo’s name.
It is unclear if Baby Lo actually has a name and she is keeping it private, or if she is still having trouble deciding.
Baby Lo came into the world surrounded by a whirlwind of controversy. Kail announced she was pregnant with him only a few months after her divorce from her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin. What was even more shocking to fans was the fact that Javi was not the father, especially since Kailyn Lowry had been adamant about not wanting more children.
Kailyn Lowry and Javi Marroquin’s marriage breakdown will play out in Marriage Bootcamp: Reality Stars Edition, which will premiere in October; about a year after it was originally filmed. In the television show, the pair gets deep when it comes to the issues in their relationship, including the fact that Javi didn’t want to accept their divorce.
Javi Marroquin has been very vocal about the fact that although he accepted Kail’s older son from a previous relationship, Isaac, he had no interest in having any sort of relationship with Baby Lo.
Baby Lo’s father, Chris Lopez, had his identity kept secret from the press for a long time because Kailyn Lowry wasn’t sure how involved he would be in his child’s life. Kail and Chris only dated briefly before she became pregnant, and the mom-of-three was worried he wouldn’t be there for his son at all. But despite rumors, he did come through and attend Baby Lo’s birth.
