Teen Mom 2 Star Kailyn Lowry’s Surprise Third Pregnancy Details: 6 Fast FactsPublished on February 24, 2017.
Fans of Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry are used to surprises in her life, but it is safe to say no one saw this coming. On Thursday, February 23 the 24-year-old revealed she was pregnant with her third child, and everyone was shocked. Lowry had just finalized her divorce from her ex-husband Javi Marroquin with whom she shares son Lincoln, and is also a mother to her son Isaac with her ex Jo. In a previous Teen Mom 2 reunion special, Lowry had stated one of the reasons for her split with Javi was that he wanted another baby and she didn’t because she wanted to focus on her career, making her new pregnancy even more surprising. While Lowry will still be graduating from school this spring, here are all the details about her surprise pregnancy.
When it comes to most pregnancies asking why isn’t really necessary, but after Lowry seemed to insist she didn’t want more kids, and that played as a factor in her divorce from Javi, many fans are confused as to why she would say that but now be pregnant. “I didn’t want to bring another child into a failing marriage. Shortly after I started having complications, the option of having more kids was almost taken from me. When I started thinking long and hard, I knew I wanted more. This was the choice I made. This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure I could have,” she explained in her announcement on her blog. She added in an interview with Ashley’s Reality Roundup, “After seeing how little support I had during my miscarriage. I truly thought I was done having kids and would finish school and focus on other things. I started having [female] complications and was told my chances of every carrying another baby to term were essentially cut in half. I realized that I did want another child eventually.”
5. With Who?
Aside from why she would get pregnant after saying she didn’t want another baby, the second most asked question is who is the father. Kailyn has confirmed it is not Javi’s baby, but is declining to say who the father is. In her interview, she simply stated, “I was told that as I get older, my chances of conceiving and carrying to term will be less and less. Long story short, the person I was with and I took the chance to see if I could get pregnant.” She added, “I have two boys now, and I wanted my kids to all be in the same age group. If I wanted to have a third child, I knew it had to be relatively soon.”
4. Who Knows?
Kailyn revealed that she did tell those closest to her, which apparently included Isaac’s father Jo, but not Javi. On her blog she wrote, “Jo has been aware of things for a while now. He was one of the first to know because we can have adult conversations about things while he respectfully gives his opinions. We always share concerns and move forward.” As for Javi, she wrote, “Unfortunately, I never got to have a conversation with him about it.”
3. The Gender/ Due Date
With two boys already, many are assuming Kailyn is hoping for a girl, but she has decided to keep the gender a secret, and revealed she is already pretty far along. “While I’m almost half-way there, I’ve decided to wait until the summer to find out!”
2. The Announcement
It seems that Lowry was trying to avoid making the pregnancy announcement as long as possible but on her blog, and Twitter hinted that it was because someone close to her sold the information to the media. “I am pregnant. I am sad that I should have known that people in my life would sell me out before I was ready. Like any normal person, I want it to be a happy time. I wanted this to be a private time so I could be excited while not getting chased by the paparazzi and bothered by crazy headlines. 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 find out.” She added that she waited because her pregnancy was so high risk and she “didn’t want to announce just to have another miscarriage and suffer through another grief.”
1. She’s Prepared
Since she and the baby’s father made the decision to try even though she had complications, Kailyn then wasn’t too shocked when she was pregnant, and is fully ready to bring another child into the world. “I wasn’t shocked when I found out I was pregnant. I was scared more than anything. For the first 12 weeks I checked for blood every time I went to the bathroom. I was scared to announce the pregnancy, and lose the baby.” On her blog she also wrote, “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.”
