Kailyn Lowry Confirms She Is a Mother of Five
In an exclusive interview with People Magazine, Kailyn Lowry, former Teen Mom 2 participant, has finally confirmed the rumors surrounding her fifth child. Lowry, who has been the subject of intense speculation over the past few months, spoke candidly about her decision to keep the news under wraps and why she chose to share it now.
The 31-year-old reality star is no stranger to being in the public eye, having shared her life with viewers on the popular MTV show. However, for this particular milestone, she wanted to take control of the narrative and tell her story on her own terms.
Lowry is a mother to four sons — Creed, 3, and Lux, 6, with ex Chris Lopez; Lincoln, 9, with ex Javi Marroquin; and Isaac, 13, with ex Jo Rivera. Her newest addition, a boy named Rio, was born late last year. Lowry revealed that she shares Rio with her boyfriend, Elijah Scott.
Despite the constant speculation from fans and media outlets, Lowry chose to keep her pregnancy a secret until now. She explained that she simply wasn’t ready to share the news and wanted to protect her privacy during such an intimate time.
“It was ripped out from under me time and time again,” Lowry said, referencing the rumors that swirled for months. “People are announcing it for me and so, at this point, I might as well just talk about it.”
Lowry’s decision to speak out now was not solely driven by a desire to set the record straight. Like any working journalist, we assume that Lowry was also compensated for the People interview. Nevertheless, she expressed her gratitude for the opportunity to finally share her experience.
“At this point, I can at least try to do it my way,” she shared.
Lowry revealed that her closest circle has known about Rio since his birth and even threw her a baby shower. Despite the unexpected nature of the pregnancy, Lowry described her son as an incredible blessing in the midst of a challenging year.
“As chaotic as it was finding out about being pregnant again, he’s been such an incredible baby that it really was a true light at the end of a really dark year for me,” Lowry said. “It was rough [last year] with the lawsuit, the depression that I dealt with, and everything else. So, he has been really a joy for all of us.”
While some fans speculate that Lowry is already pregnant with her sixth child, she did not address those rumors directly. Instead, she expressed a desire to adjust to her new normal and focus on motherhood and her podcast.
Lowry’s journey as a young mother has captivated audiences for years. From her debut on 16 and Pregnant to her time on Teen Mom 2, she has shared the ups and downs of raising children as a young adult. Now, with five children to care for, Lowry faces new challenges and joys.
As she embarks on this new chapter of her life, Lowry is determined to take control of her story and share it with her fans on her own terms. Through her openness and transparency, she continues to inspire others and prove that despite the struggles, motherhood is a beautiful and rewarding journey.
