As Us Weekly previously reported, the MTV star gave birth to her third child — her first with Lopez — on August 5.

While the pair are not currently in a relationship, he was present for the birth of the child Lowry nicknamed “Baby Lo,” and the reality star said earlier this week that she was optimistic that Lopez would step up and be a good father to his son.

“Every child deserves their dad,” the 25-year-old told RadarOnline on Monday, August 14. “I’m hopeful. I’m positive he’ll be around.”

“I think he has been as supportive as he can,” she added. “He does the best to his ability even though it doesn’t necessarily meet the standards of what everyone else expects of him. I think people need to keep that in mind.”

As Teen Mom fans have seen this season on the show, Lowry admitted to not getting a lot of support during her pregnancy from Lopez, who she said “comes around when he wants to.”

Lowry, who has a son Isaac, 7, with ex Jo Rivera, and a 3-year-old, Lincoln, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, kept the identity of her baby daddy a secret through most of her pregnancy, finally confirming in May that Lopez was the dad.

Teen Mom 2 airs on MTV Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
