Kailyn Lowry, star of MTV’s “Teen Mom 2”, has welcomed twin boys, her 6th and 7th children. The 31-year-old gave birth on January 19th, 2024.
Details of the Birth
According to sources, Lowry delivered the twins at home, which she described as a “terrifying yet beautiful” experience. She was assisted by a midwife team. The twin boys have been named Elijah and Scott.
In a podcast episode released shortly after the birth, Lowry shared details of her twin delivery, calling it the “most difficult” birth yet. She was fearful during the final stages of labor and admits she “couldn’t stop crying” out of panic.
Lowry says this will be her last pregnancy, as she underwent a tubal ligation procedure following the birth to prevent any future pregnancies.
Background on Lowry’s Motherhood Journey
Kailyn Lowry first appeared on MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” in 2010 when she was expecting her eldest son, Isaac, now 14. She later starred in the spin-off series “Teen Mom 2” which documented her early years of motherhood.
She shares son Isaac with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera, son Lincoln, 10, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and sons Lux, 6, and Creed, 3, with ex Chris Lopez. Lowry did not publicly share the paternity of her newborn twins.
Over the years, fans have followed Lowry’s motherhood journey as she navigated co-parenting struggles and new relationships. This marks her first birth since 2018.
Mixed Reactions from Fans
Fans of the long-running franchise shared mixed reactions over Lowry’s twin news. Some offered congratulations and well-wishes. However, many questioned her decision to have more children and criticized the unidentified father’s lack of involvement.
“7 kids, 4 baby daddies and none of them help raise their kids. I just don’t understand bringing kids into the world without committed fathers,” one fan commented on Instagram.
Others came to Lowry’s defense, asking commenters to “let her live life on her terms.”
Lowry has not addressed the criticism directly but previously stated she does not let outsiders’ opinions influence her family planning decisions.
What’s Next for the “Teen Mom” Star
In the upcoming weeks, Lowry will adjust to life with infant twins while caring for her five older sons. She is likely to share details about her postpartum recovery and introduce the new additions on social media.
The birth will also play out in future episodes of Lowry’s podcast, “Coffee Convos with Kail Lowry & Lindsie Chrisley”. She may speak more candidly about delivery complications and expanding her family as a single mother.
Additionally, Lowry recently landed her own Teen Mom spinoff series which she promises will show a “different side” of her compared to Teen Mom 2. The docuseries will presumably feature footage of her twin pregnancy and birth story when it premieres later this year.
While Lowry maintains this is her last pregnancy, some fans speculate she may change her mind in the future, given her admitted desire for a daughter. For now, the reality TV mom seems content with her family of boys.
