Considering that Chris Lopez was nowhere to be seen during Kailyn Lowry’s pregnancy, it’s pretty surprising that he wants anything to do with his newborn son. Apparently, Baby Lo’s incredible cuteness was enough to win his father over though; Chris has begun to play a bigger role in his son’s life than any of Kailyn’s fans expected him to. Still, it’s shocking to learn that, even though Chris was MIA during Kail’s pregnancy, he may not only want to spend time with his son, but may be willing to battle Kailyn for custody of their child!
Kailyn and Chris’s relationship is pretty confusing lately, and, for the most part, all that we have to go on for insight is their interaction on social media. Lately, it’s been more confusing than ever. But luckily, Chris recently took the time to clear up what’s been going on between the two.
Clearing the Air
The cast members of Teen Mom have been in the spotlight for so long that they all seem to realize how inflammatory their social media posts can be. Saying one misleading thing, no matter how casual, can result in rumors that spread like wildfire. However, newer members of the cast, like Chris Lopez, might not realize how easy it is to confuse an entire fanbase with just a few words.
Chris may have recently figured this out the hard way. When he tweeted “I just want my son,” it confused everyone. Was Kailyn not allowing him to spend any time with his newborn? Considering that Kail opened up about wanting Chris to play a role in Baby Lo’s life, it should go without saying that this was a mind-boggling update.
Eventually, Chris cleared up what was going on. He called out Radar, tweeting, “I guess radar gets the scoop huh lol bet. Well people want the truth..get ready lol. Seen my lil man almost everyday..boom there the truth.” He added some laughing emojis.
Father of the Year
It wasn’t long before Kailyn made an effort to clear things up, telling Radar Online, “Chris sees his son almost everyday… We’re still trying to figure out what works for us.” She went on to say, that Chris has been “as supportive as he can. He does the best to his ability even though it doesn’t necessarily meet the standards of what everyone else expects from him. I think people need to keep that in mind.”
She explained, “[Chris] has school and work. I’m able to be home right now so I’ll have the baby most of the time. I told him he could see the baby whenever he wants.”
It seems that Kailyn’s fans want the best for her, and that means hoping Chris is actually coming through. Reddit user Mughain wrote of Chris’s update, “I hope that’s true. Lots of people have been so quick to judge and label him a deadbeat straight off the bat, and I’ve reserved judgement thus far. Would very much like to see Baby Lo have an active and involved father to balance out Kail’s craziness.” Others were less than impressed with the update. User FtotheLICK wrote, “You saw YOUR son ALMOST everyday? Give this mofo father of the year.”
