Kailyn Lowry of Teen Mom 2 fame confirmed in February of this year that she is expecting her fourth child. The father is Lowry's former flame Chris Lopez, who is also the father to her two-year-old son, Lux. The reality star also shares sons Isaac, 10, and Lincoln, six, with exes Jo Rivera and Javi Marroquin. Fans of MTV's Teen Mom franchise know that Kailyn and Chris aren't on good terms. Kail was granted a restraining order against him in Oct. 2019 after he was allegedly arrested twice that month. She has also said that “there’s no co-parenting right now” with Lopez.
Considering their history, it makes sense that Kailyn wouldn't be all that eager to have Chris in the delivery room when their son is born. As reported by Us Weekly, she opened up about her decision in an Instagram Q&A this week.
“My mental health and CONSISTENCY in my sons’ lives are more important than he said/she said,” Kailyn said. “As their mother, I know in my heart I’m doing what I believe to be best. I’m sorry if everyone disagrees. … Why would I make the call to someone who has not been helpful, consistent, empathetic or compassionate for the entire 9 months? Says he doesn’t care but thinks he should be included in the birth? Make it make sense.”
Her comments come around the same time Lopez filmed an Instagram Live video saying he has “stay[ed] out of the way” during Lowry’s pregnancy, continuing, “If I get the call [to come to the birth], I get the call. If I don’t, I don’t. It is what it is at this point. I can’t stress it, bro. … It ain’t up to me.”
It seems like Chris doesn't know the difference between giving someone their space and demonstrating indifference about your unborn child and their mother's health. Hopefully, the rest of Kailyn's pregnancy is smooth sailing and Chris respects her boundaries about being present for the baby's birth.
