Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry says she is ready to raise baby number four alone. The pregnant 27-year-old recently opened up about her relationship with her baby daddy, Chris Lopez, and she says she’s prepared to raise her kids without him.
Earlier this month, Lowry revealed that she was expecting her fourth child, which is her second with Lopez. They already share two-year-old Lux, and she’s also the mom of 9-year-old Isaac – who she shares with ex Jo Rivera – and 6-year-old Lincoln, who she shares with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.

Things have been so different this time around – it’s weird knowing the sex of this baby & trying to solidify a name so he doesn’t go nameless like Lux did 🥴 + my anxiety is through the roof. I’m scared of doing anything wrong. What is your experience with pregnancy? 👇🏼 // hair & Make up @jessicab_beauty // photo x @jonlloydjr
Ever since her pregnancy announcement, Lowry has faced some criticism over her decision to have another baby with Lopez because he hasn’t been a big part of Lux’s life.
Fans were also confused about the pregnancy because Lowry told Dr. Drew at the Teen Mom reunion in December that she and Lopez didn’t have a co-parenting relationship, and he was in therapy and working on himself.
On top of that, in October 2019 Lopez said that he messed up when Lowry was pregnant with Lux because he wasn’t around and he wished he would have been there more for Lowry.
“I know that the situation is not ideal, however, the absolutely untrue and defamatory statements people are making about me because of this are out of hand,” Lowry told Us Weekly. “At the end of the day, I have three children that are happy, healthy and wonderful kids. I know I’m prepared to raise another baby on my own and we are all so excited to welcome him into our family.”
Lowry confirmed that she and Lopez are no longer in a relationship, and she added that they have “no contact.” However, she says that Lopez is the father, and he has confessed to her that he intentionally got her pregnant.
“The circumstances surrounding conception are not up for discussion,” says Lowry.
The Coffee & Convos podcast host also refused to talk about the protective order she had against Lopez. She explained that she’s legally not allowed to go into detail about it, but she wanted to make it clear that domestic violence and narcissism are “very real subjects.” And, when she is in a place to offer advice, she will.
New episodes of Teen Mom 2 will return to MTV later this year.
