Kailyn Lowry has welcomed her fourth child after giving birth to her new son. Speaking with E! News, Lowry revealed a name had not been chosen yet but that their latest arrival came in at 8 lbs., 15 oz. and 22.5 inches long. The Teen Mom 2 star welcomed him on July 30. She told the outlet that her and Chris Lopez are "so in love" with their newest addition and that she can officially check off giving birth "during a pandemic" off of her list.
News of Lowry's pregnancy first surfaced in February when she revealed to E! News the good news. At the time of her announcement, she said they were "so excited" after learning another boy would be joining the family following a gender reveal party. A few months later, she kept her followers updated on her pregnancy, calling it a "really easy pregnancy" compared to her previous experiences. Prior to this, Lowry was a mother to three sons: Isaac, 10, Lincoln, 6, and Lux, 2. Her oldest child is with her ex Jo Rivera while her middle son was from her relationship with Javi Marroquin. Lopez also fathered Lux along with their newest child.
About two weeks before welcoming her newest son, Lowry shared that Lopez would not be joining her at the hospital. She discussed the matter during an Instagram Q-and-A, saying that it was best for her mental health if he wasn't there, considering he was not "helpful, consistent, empathetic or compassionate" during her pregnancy, as she explained. She also spoke about how she was "high risk" in giving birth due to her weight. While on her podcast Coffee Convos with Lindsie Chrisley, Lowry said she was the heaviest she had ever been, but that despite all of that, everything appeared to be fine heading into her delivery.
Early on in the process, Lowry was involved in a bit of controversy after a leaked nude maternity photo made its way across social media. The picture reportedly came out from the photography without her consent as part of a photoshoot she was involved in. She said she was "deeply saddened and humiliated" that the image made it out into the public. She later was in more controversy, this time after resurfaced racist comments began to trickle into the eye of the public. The video led to many fans calling for MTV to remove her from Teen Mom 2 as they did with a handful of its other stars.
