Fans were shocked when Kailyn Lowry announced that she was pregnant with baby No. 4. While she has already revealed that she will be adding another boy to her family, Kail hasn’t given up hope to one day have a baby girl and has actually talked about possibly pursuing gender selection in the future.
According to a new report from The Hollywood Gossip, the mom-of-boys has admitted that she is excited to have another boy, but has already spoken to her doctor about gender selection.
“Honestly. Truthfully. Aren’t you annoyed you’re not having a girl?” one fan asked the reality star.
“I’m not annoyed, LOL! But I did talk to my doctor about gender selection [at] my last [appointment],” she explained.
Of course, that doesn’t mean the Teen Mom 2 star is necessarily planning on having another baby, but it is clear she is ensuring she knows the options that are available to her in case she wants to undergo gender selection in the future.
According to the report, Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra have looked into potentially going through the process as well, but they looked into it in hopes of having a boy. Although they want to add a boy to their family someday, they didn’t want to pay the hefty price tag, which was reportedly $18,000.
On social media, Kail teased her fans about the new development, taking to Instagram to show off a photo of her baby bump. In the snap, she stood in her bathroom, taking a mirror selfie. She wore a pair of black bottoms, along with a black bra with thick straps. She wore her long blond hair in a bun, holding her phone in one hand while snapping the selfie. In the caption, she teased that she is “having a girl.”
The reality star directed her followers to follow a link in her bio, which led them to the article about her considering gender selection for baby No. 5.
Although the photo had over 55,000 likes in the first hour of being posted, Kail disabled comments on the post. It is unclear why she decided to do this, but she recently locked her tweets so that only those who follow her can read them.
Despite her hopes for a daughter, Kailyn also admitted that she and her three boys are “excited” to be welcoming another boy into their family — her second child with her ex Chris Lopez.
