Another bundle of joy! Teen Mom 2’s Kailyn Lowry is pregnant and expecting her third child, she confirmed to The Ashley on Thursday, February 23. Find out more in the video above!
“I am about halfway through the pregnancy,” the reality star said. “I know this isn’t the ideal situation, but those close to me have been very supportive and understanding.”
Although she didn’t name the father, Lowry said the pregnancy was planned because she wanted her kids to be close in age. “If I wanted to have a third child, I knew it had to be relatively soon,” she said.
The 24-year-old reality star’s little one will join older brothers Isaac, 7, who Lowry shares with ex Jo Rivera, and Lincoln, 3, who she welcomed with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
The 16 and Pregnant alum’s exciting news comes not long after she and Marroquin finalized their divorce. Prior to that, they turned to Marriage Boot Camp in an attempt to salvage the relationship.
Despite the drama, Lowry seems thrilled to expand her family. “I may not have always made the best choices but I will say today I’m happy & my heart is so full,” she tweeted on Sunday, February 20.
Though she had previously written off the idea of having more kids in the future, the Pride Over Pity author revealed via Twitter in January that she had changed her mind.
