Fans have had to guess at whether Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez are still together or not, but she (kind of) cleared that subject up this week on the latest episode of Us Weekly's Watch With Us.
Lowry revealed that the show definitely won’t focus on her dating life in the upcoming season. “I don’t go out on dates or date new people ever,” the 26-year-old reality star said. Though Kailyn didn’t go into extreme detail, it’s safe to say that her and Lopez are definitely involved again, even if it is complicated.
“We’re getting married next month,” she joked before adding, “I’m just kidding!”
“I mean, Chris and I are always together even when we’re not together,” Lowry continued. “If that makes any sense. Don’t be surprised if you see a wedding in the tabloids the next month!”
Lowry and Lopez share 17-month-old son Lux. The mom-of-three also has a four-year-old son named Lincoln, who she had with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and an eight-year-old son named Isaac, who she had with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera.
The on-again off-again relationship between Lowry and Lopez was documented in season eight of Teen Mom 2, even though he never made an appearance on the show. Fans also shouldn’t expect to see Lopez on season nine, either.
“Chris is a huge part of my life and is not interested in being on the show,” Lowry said. “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,” Lowry added. “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. 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.”
