Are they or aren’t they? Kailyn Lowry joined this week’s “Watch With Us” podcast on Tuesday, January 8, ahead of the Teen Mom 2 season 9 premiere, and talked everything including Jenelle Evans and David Eason, how she fights back against online body-shamers and what’s going on in her romantic life. The reality star is busy! She shares 17-month-old son Lux with Chris Lopez, 8-year-old son Isaac with former boyfriend Jo Rivera and Lincoln, 4, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
While this season won’t really show the 26-year-old’s dating life – “I don’t go out on dates or date new people ever,” she notes – it’s safe to say she’s involved again with Lopez, 24.
“We’re getting married next month,” Lowry joked before quickly adding, “I’m just kidding!”
She continued: “I mean, Chris and I are always together even when we’re not together. If that makes any sense. Don’t be surprised if you see a wedding in the tabloids the next month!”
Lowry and Lopez’s on-off relationship was documented on season 8 of Teen Mom 2, but he did not appear on the show; viewers will not see him on camera in season 9, either.
“Chris is a huge part of my life and is not interested in being on the show,” the A Letter of Love author told Us. “I think he kind of feels like it’s my thing. He’s kind of watched [exes] Jo, Javi and other people take advantage of me being on the show and the platform that it brings them. And I think that he doesn’t want to be that person.”
“Also, he kind of wants to be self-made. I don’t think any real man wants to hear, ‘You have what you have because of Teen Mom,’ especially because he wasn’t a teen parent,” she noted. “He’s about to be 25. It just doesn’t really, I guess, he doesn’t want to be part of it for those reasons.”
