Even though Kailyn isn’t in a relationship with any of her three baby daddies, her nonexistent with Chris Lopez is uncharted territory for them both. Although her romantic relationships with Jo Riverra and Javi Marroquin didn’t survive, she was at least dating them at the time of her first two sons’ births. That meant that as she raised Isaac and Lincoln, she had a helping hand while they were still newborns. For Lux, not so much.
The mother-of-three recently revealed that Lux’s father Chris cheated on her throughout her pregnancy, and by the time Lux was born, they were in a full out feud. In fact, Kailyn wasn’t even sure that Chris would show up to Lux’s birth. It soon came out that Chris declined to sign paternity papers for Lux, meaning he waived his legal rights to see his son. No wonder we haven’t been seeing many cute father and son pictures over the past few months!
As for Kailyn and Chris’s relationship, it’s only seemed to go downhill as their bay has grown. But now it looks like Kailyn is putting her pride aside in an effort to give her son a father, and Chris and Lux will see each other for what appears to be the first time in months!
From day one, fans got nothing but mixed signals from Kailyn Lowry and Chris Lopez’s relationship. Kailyn put off announcing her pregnancy for as long as possible — that is, until Jenelle Evans publicly leaked the news. Even after her pregnancy was common knowledge, she clearly wasn’t keen on her fans knowing who the baby daddy was.
Of course, when you’re famous, all your secrets are bound to come out one way or another. Soon, Chris Lopez’s identity was revealed, but it became quickly apparent that Chris would have preferred to stay anonymous. Chris has never appeared on Teen Mom 2 and has refused to film from day one. According to Kailyn, this is likely because he didn’t want his “other hoes” to know that he had gotten her pregnant.
The Teen Mom probably hoped that their relationship would improve after the baby came, but it seems like just the opposite has happened. Kailyn has now reportedly banned Chris from seeing Lux at all, with one insider even claiming that Chris was getting violent with the mother of his son.
Now Kailyn is giving reportedly him another chance. The star has always been vocal about putting her children above everything else, which could explain why she wants Lux to have frequent visits with his father. That’s why she took him to see Chris this week.
“It was a supervised visit,” an inside source told Radar Online. “The visits are not on a schedule. It wasn’t at a visitation center. It was wherever they decided to go as long as the supervisor was there.”
The insider said that while Kailyn might not be excited to see her ex, she was glad that Lux could see his father. “She’s just happy they were able to see each other,” said the insider. Kailyn seemed to show some emotion on Twitter, as she wrote, “I had a moment,” the day of the visit.
For anyone who is hoping that Kailyn and Chris work it out, it’s not looking very likely. After all, Kailyn seems to be perfectly happy with her new girlfriend, Dominique Potter — AKA “Daddy Dom!”
In the meantime, fans had mixed feelings about Kailyn’s decision. She posted this picture of the adorable Lux (below), captioning “Someone’s ready to see his daddy today!” And while some fans were happy about the reunion, others were a little less impressed.
“I think it’s so sad that a newborn baby doesn’t get to see his mom and Dad every day,” wrote user buttholemolds. They added, “And I am thinking what it must be like for Kail to have to schedule these visits for all her kids and all their dads for their whole lives and it just seems so sad.”
“Wondering why she feels the need to caption the pic this way? Feels tacky and attention seeking, considering it’s sounded like she’s been keeping Lux from Chris,” user mama3185 agreed. “In other words, this shouldn’t need to be such a special/rare moment, that it’s caption worthy – Lux seeing his father should be happening every few days or at least every week.”
But one user, Mattisnotmybabydaddy, defended Kailyn. “[P]eople constantly talk about how she needs to include Chris in Lux’s life so now she’s showing those who talk sh-t that she is including him,” they wrote. “I get it, and hopefully they have a good visit.”
