The Teen Mom fanbase went wild yesterday when Kailyn Lowry took to Instagram to finally confirm the news she was expecting her fourth child. After weeks of rumors and alleged leaks, people were excited to finally get the truth from the 27-year-old MTV personality.
Kail wrote in her caption alongside an adorable photo of herself and her three sons looking at an ultrasound, "We’re confirming the news, baby #4 is coming soon!" While we don't know who the baby daddy is just yet, fans were happy to show support and love to the reality star in the comments section.
Well now, sources are dishing to The Ashley on why Kailyn waited to announce the news, and it's quite unexpected. Although Kail's ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez's mom shared photos of what she claimed to be the ultrasound, the mom-of-three reportedly didn't weigh in publicly because she was considering getting an abortion.
“[Kailyn] is talking on-camera about why she didn’t confirm the pregnancy earlier,” an insider explains. “Basically, she talks about how she was not sure she wanted to keep the baby, and how she was struggling with the options.” Another source claims that the reality star explained while being filmed for Teen Mom 2 that she made an appointment to have an abortion, but ultimately changed her mind.
“She talks [on-camera] about how she went to the office to have the abortion, but then wasn’t able to go through with it,” an insider also tells The Ashley. “She cancelled the procedure when she got more details and decided to have the baby. She told the producers she didn’t want to lie about it and was very open about struggling to decide what to do.”
While many followers of the MTV series aren't big on Kailyn's life choices, we can't help but commend her for being so honest with her fans and the cameras. We're eager to see how her decision went down when Teen Mom 2 returns.
