The self-described “longest pregnancy of the year” has come to an end for Kailyn Lowry.
Because this Teen Mom 2 star has finally given birth to her third child!
In exciting news broken by Radar Online, Lowry has delivered one of The Hollywood Gossip’s most anticipated children in several months.
Adding to her controversial family early Saturday morning, the reality star welcomed a baby boy at 3 a.m. on August 5.
He weighed seven pounds and 15 ounces at the time he became an official human being.
We do not yet know the bundle of joy’s length nor, more importantly, do we know his name.
Lowry had teased both the gender and the name of her impending child for most of the spring and summer.
At one point Kailyn tweeted that she was considering “Griffin, Nixon, Ripken [or] Silas” if the baby proved to be a boy.
So it may very well be one of those monikers.
As recently as six days ago, meanwhile, Lowry expressed irritation at still being pregnant, writing on social media:
“I’m convinced I’m never having the baby and it’s all a dream. I feel no progress here lol.”
But shortly after the Internet blew up with confirmation that she did, indeed, have the baby, Kailyn chimed in herself via Twitter.
“Mother of boys,” she simply wrote, mere minutes ago.
The Teen Mom 2 mainstay reluctantly announced her pregnancy in February, confessing at the time that she hadn’t planned on going public with the big news just yet.
Already the mother to a seven-year old named Isaac (with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera) and a three-year old named Lincoln (with ex-husband Javi Marroquin), Kailyn “wanted this to be a private time.”
Lamenting that she just hoped “I could be excited while not getting chased by paparazzi and bothered with crazy headlines,” she wrote on Instagram, blaming “people” in her life for selling her out.
In other words, announcing her status before she was prepared to tell the world.
Did she plan to get pregnant, though?
Or was this a mistake?
“Please know this was a choice I made,” Lowry wrote earlier this year, adding:
“I already know some won’t agree, but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out…
“I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay.”
The next few weeks were filled with viral speculation over the identity of Kailyn’s baby daddy.
Was it Javi? Was it an MTV producer with whom she carried on an explicit relationship?
No, it’s apparently some dude named Chris Lopez, who has a very low profile and who reportedly met Lowry while she was earning her college degree.
While Kailyn’s relationship status with Lopez is unclear at the moment, the pair do not appear to be exclusive boyfriend and girlfriend.
They don’t appear to be on very good terms at all, unfortunately, with sources recently saying Lowry is afraid Lopez won’t be in his son’s life.
In any way, shape or form.
That would be very sad, if it ends up being the case.
“Kail became a relationship of convenience for him,” a source told Radar Online, explaining of Lopez and how he viewed his baby mama:
“He never actually loved her. It was a relationship, but he just decided he wanted something different and things didn’t work out so they went their separate ways.”
That would typically be fine and all.
But now there’s a little person that exists and who would benefit greatly from having two active parents in his life.
Therefore, no matter what you may think of Kailyn Lowry and the decisions she’s made in life, please join us in hoping she and Lopez can work something out.
For the sake of their brand new baby, at the very least, and for the two she already had, who are going through a lot as it is.
We wish nothing but health and happiness to Kailyn’s latest child, and to her entire family at this exciting if tumultuous time.
NOTE: Once we learn the name of Lowry’s son, you better believe he’ll be added to the rundown below.
