Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry confirmed in February that she is expecting her fourth child, her second with ex-boyfriend Chris Lopez. The pair already share two-year-old son Lux, and Kail later revealed on her Instagram that she is expecting another boy. The Pennsylvania native also shares Isaac, 10, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera and Lincoln, six, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.

"The kids and I are so excited to be adding another baby boy into the mix,” Lowry told Us Weekly after her exciting announcement. “Thank you all so much for your continued support & well wishes. Hopefully, the rest of this pregnancy will go smoothly as we anticipate the arrival of our newest addition.” However, it seems that Kail might be the only parent at the birth to welcome her son. In an exclusive interview, the mother-of-three told Champion Daily that as of right now, her plans for labor and delivery do not include her ex. “I likely won’t invite Chris to the birth.” the reality star told the outlet.

Fans of the MTV reality series know that Kailyn and Chris have not had the most steady relationship. Kail has said that “there’s no co-parenting right now” with her baby daddy, and it was reported that she was even granted a restraining order against him in Oct. 2019. Chris has fired back at these allegations, even announcing his plan to make a documentary, which would include his side of the story.

Kailyn explained that her decision is based on Chris' lack of commitment to fatherhood, saying he has yet to reach out. "Despite having the pfa (order of protection), he’s allowed to contact me (in writing) via text or email about the kid(s) and he never has. He’s never asked if they need anything," she told Champion Daily. “So what’s the point? So I likely won’t invite him, but am unsure.” Maybe by the time Kailyn is ready to give birth her feelings will have changed, but right now it seems like her mind is made up.

Whatever happens between Kail and Chris, hopefully she has a smooth labor and delivery!
