The past year has been a roller coaster ride for “Teen Mom 2” star, Kailyn Lowry. The 25-year-old recently gave birth to her third son, who she had with ex-fling, Chris Lopez.
According to earlier reports, baby No. 3 came as a complete surprise to the reality star, who was told by a doctor that she was unlikely to bear any more children after the birth of her second son.
On a recent episode of “Teen Mom 2,” she told ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera:
“I was told I couldn’t carry anymore children. I was told I would have to go through fertility treatments and IVF and all kinds of things.”
Before her third pregnancy, Lowry suffered a devastating miscarriage with ex-husband and father of her second child, Javi Marroquin.
On the reality series, Lowry told Rivera that she and Lopez felt OK about the pregnancy:
“Okay, from both of us, it was not planned and not prevented. He knew I wanted a baby and if it happened, it was fine.”
But Lowry’s relationship with the baby daddy is allegedly still up in the air.
A source close to the mother of three told Hollywood Life that’s she’s prepared to raise the baby on her own:
“The past times she has given birth she’s been in a relationship with the baby daddy, but this time round it’s just her.”
Even without Lopez by her side all the time, the source said that Lowry will “pick herself up and she’ll deal.”
Lopez has kept silent about the birth of his son, but now he’s opening up about fatherhood on Twitter, according to InTouch.
It seems like the proud father has been spending some quality time with the new baby:
Lowry and Lopez have yet to set up a formal custody agreement, but the “Teen Mom 2” star said that he’s been a big help. She told InTouch:
“I think he has been as supportive as he can. He does the best to his ability even though it doesn’t necessarily meet the standards that everyone else expects of him. I think people need to keep that in mind.”
It seems like the mother of three has been getting along with her third baby daddy, but the same can’t be said for her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin.
Lowry filed a restraining order against the 24-year-old shortly after giving birth to her third baby, according to earlier reports.
He can no longer go within 100 yards of the reality star and can only communicate with her about their son, Lincoln.
Regardless of the drama, it seems that Lowry is just thrilled to have a beautiful baby boy.
