No stranger to mom-shaming! Kailyn Lowry has heard it all since appearing on 16 and Pregnant in 2010. Now, the Teen Mom 2 star has four sons — and social media trolls love to tell Lowry how to parent her boys.
The MTV personality became a mom in 2010 when she gave birth to son Isaac with then-partner Jo Rivera. The reality star went on to welcome son Lincoln in 2013 with then-husband Javi Marroquin, followed by sons Lux and Creed with Chris Lopez in 2017 and 2020, respectively.
“I was doing [egg harvesting] first, and I’m glad I started doing it, because then I found out I have PCOS,” Lowry said during the July 2021 Teen Mom 2 reunion. “I’m not even saying I would have more [kids], I just want the possibility, if five years from now, I do meet the love of my life and we want to have kids, I have healthy eggs.”
The “Baby Mamas No Drama” podcast host exclusively told Us Weekly about her diagnosis in three months prior, calling it “a little bit overwhelming.”
Lowry explained in April 2021, “The medication has insane side effects, and I’m just trying to figure out the best ways to manage the symptoms because the diagnosis came just as fast as the symptoms came. So it’s just kind of all, like, new and overwhelming. But we’re gonna figure out a way to manage it and, and we’ll work it out.”
The Pride Over Pity author went on to reveal that she was going through IVF and egg retrievals to be on the safe side. “My kids are getting older,” she said, telling Us that she would “maybe, maybe not” try to have a baby girl in the future.
Lowry called six kids her “max” while speaking to Lindsie Chrisley in July 2020. “I don’t think that I would have ever pictured myself, like, ten years ago when I had Isaac, having four kids,” she said at the time. “I would not have more than six.”
Whether the “Coffee Convos” podcast host is being bashed for the length of her baby’s hair or the fact that he hasn’t been vaccinated, she hasn’t been afraid to clap back. Take a look at all the times the mother of four has stuck up for her sons!
