She totally lost it!
When you look at any of the Teen Mom stars’ social media accounts, it looks like they lead a perfectly happy life. But because they’re reality stars, all of their fans know that their lives are a lot more complicated than they look on the surface.
Many of the Teen Mom 2 cast members are dealing with major difficulties in their personal lives ― and sometimes it can be hard for them to hold it all together. There’s nothing quite as difficult as an unplanned pregnancy… except, maybe, having a totally MIA baby daddy on top of it all.
Kailyn Lowry holds it together as best as she can, but anyone would have a difficult time in her shoes. It’s now clear that Kailyn was hoping Chris would be a bigger part of their son Lux’s life once she gave birth, but her relationship with him has only added more difficulty in the past few months.
Now, she’s completely broken down crying at the thought of raising Lux without Chris’ help.
According to the mother-of-three, she had no intention of becoming pregnant when she and Chris Lopez conceived Lux. They weren’t in a relationship, and she wasn’t trying for a third. There’s nothing to throw you for a loop quite like an unplanned pregnancy, and just because Kail survived it while she was 16 doesn’t make it any easier to do at 25.
Her pregnancy with Lux was the first time that she wasn’t in a relationship with her baby daddy. In fact, they were so estranged that the star managed to keep his identity a secret for months after her pregnancy came out. Kailyn kept up a brave face throughout her pregnancy, but the thought of raising a third child alone is enough for even the strongest person to feel overwhelmed.
Going it Alone
Even though Kailyn tried to hold it together for as long as she could, all of the pressure became too much. Now, it looks like we’re about to get some insight into what her struggle was really like.
In this preview from tomorrow’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Lowry breaks down crying with her fears about her pregnancy. She tells a friend she’s concerned that Chris won’t care enough about his son to even come to the hospital for the delivery. “I’m scared that if I call him when I’m in labor or something, he literally won’t show up.” She adds, “I’m about to do this by myself!”
In another clip, she discusses Lux’s due date with her friend Quay. “Chris didn’t come to my last ultrasound because he slept through his alarm, and I haven’t talked to him since.”
She tells Quay that she doesn’t think he’ll come to her upcoming doctor’s appointment, and doesn’t even want him to. “Part of me doesn’t think he deserves it. I just have a lot of mixed emotions about it. Sometimes I want him to be there, and sometimes I’m like ‘F**k him’ after everything he’s done.”
She says, “I don’t want to have the hope, though. I want to be like how Briana was when she was describing her situation with Luis. He cheated on her and that was it… why can’t that be me?”
Now that Lux is here, it’s clear that a lot has changed. Kailyn’s been choosing to keep Lux from Chris, and there are some pretty shocking reasons behind it.
