He's firing back!
Kailyn Lowry’s relationship with her third baby daddy, Chris Lopez, might not be going exactly how she planned. Even though many fans believe that she wanted to have a long term relationship, it looks like what Kailyn calls his “side hoes” may have thrown a wrench in that. Regardless, the two aren’t together, even though they’re working on co-parenting Lux.
That said, their co-parenting relationship may just have gotten a little bit rockier. Kailyn made a pretty clear statement when she decided to give Lux her last name instead of Chris’, which signaled to many fans that she didn’t expect Chris to be a significant part of her son’s life. Now, Chris is firing back on Instagram about where he stands with his son.
If a couple is in a relationship when a child is born, it’s conventional for the child to take their father’s name, regardless of whether the parents are married. We’ve seen this with numerous members of the Teen Mom cast’s children. So when Kailyn decided to give Lux her last name instead of Chris’, it sent a pretty clear signal what she expected from him by way of co-parenting…. Not much.
But if that wasn’t clear enough, Kailyn also reportedly banned Chris from seeing their son altogether. And if this next rumor is true, she has every legal right to do so.
According to a source that spoke with Radar Online, Chris refused to sign paternity papers when Lux was born, confirming that he was the father. Therefore, Kailyn has all of the legal rights to her son. “My guess is he won’t acknowledge paternity so she can’t file for child support,” an insider told Radar Online. “They give a form in the hospital, but he didn’t sign it.”
They added, “Her lawyer drew something up and they are going through the court because he doesn’t have any rights to Lux without signing. He’s not seeing the baby right now for those reasons.”
“Ain’t Going Nowhere”
Although this particular insider made it sound like Chris was content to have no part in Lux’s life, that doesn’t seem to be what Chris himself is saying. He’s been showing numerous pictures of his son on Instagram. The one that has fans buzzing the most is this shot of Lux holding his finger, which he captioned, “I ain’t going no where.”
He posted another, writing, “Missing you something serious right now.” On another, he wrote, “My little man 2 months today. Love you boy.”
In the meantime, it seems like Kailyn might not have much time to worry about Chris — it looks like she’s met someone new! She’s been flirting with an on-and-off guy that might be familiar to fans! He’s the one she was caught in bed with while she was pregnant with Chris’s son!
The two haven’t confirmed that they’re dating, but they sure hinted at the possibility of it happening in the near future. “No, we are not dating,” the man, Dionisio, told Radar Online. He added: “Yet. Time will tell. Everything is fine as far as I know.”
Kailyn had more than a few hints herself. She told Radar, “I wouldn’t say we’re dating,” Kailyn said. “I’m not dating anyone. But if I was going to date anyone, it would be him.”
