Kailyn Lowry’s choices on Teen Mom 2 have been pretty controversial for a while. Her breakup with Javi Marroquin kicked things off with rumors of cheating. Then, fans have quite a bit to say about her “mommy makeover.” Finally, things really heated up when she became pregnant by her third baby daddy while the couple was ostensibly unattached. Needless to say, she’s had a hard time in the headlines of late.
No matter what you think about Kailyn, though, you have to admit that she has a huge amount of love for her boys. And really, no one can argue with the fact that her three little ones are beyond adorable!
Kailyn’s boys are growing up in the blink of an eye, and she’s full of updates about them. Check out this insider look at how Isaac, Lincoln, and Baby Lo are getting along.
Mother of Boys
For anyone who’s been around little boys, it shouldn’t be surprising how rowdy they can be. In an interview with E!, Kailyn opened up about navigating being a mom to three boys.
“I don’t think I realized how much my older two talk about farting and burping and as loud and obnoxious as they are until I had my third boy,” she said. “I was like, ‘What is three boys going to look like for me?’ I mean, toilet seats are left up and toys all over the place.” She added, “Power Rangers, I feel like, is never gonna leave my home. Cause Isaac was into it, Lincoln was into it, and now I have a third boy that I know will follow in the footsteps.”
The boys are old enough now that they each have their own personalities. Kailyn shared, “Isaac is very soft and just sensitive, and he’s like my science kid. He loves science. Lincoln’s definitely got middle child syndrome. He’s crazy, he’s funny, oh my gosh he’s great. And then the baby, we’ll see how he differs from the other two, but I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of traits he picks up from both of them.”
Baby Lo is growing quicker than you’d think, and Kailyn was excited to share his milestones. “Right now, Baby Lo is, like, following voices it seems like, so if you’re looking at him and kind of move he’ll follow. He’s just now starting to, like, really smile a lot, so I’m hoping that it will move on from like gas smiles to more, like, real smiles. He coos a lot, that’s the new thing.”
Kailyn has been eager to share pictures of Baby Lo grinning across all of her social media, and between his little grins and his full mop of hair, it’s no wonder she’s head over heels for him.
When it comes to the name game Baby Lo is still Baby Lo — Kailyn still hasn’t decided what his name is! Considering he’s coming up on two months old, fans are getting antsy about when the reveal will come. Kailyn still hasn’t given any hints, but she has announced how she’ll announce his name: She tweeted that she’ll be “[g]etting it customized on a blanket and posting!”
As far as where Kail thinks her boys got their personalities from, well, she’s not entirely sure. “I think Isaac’s sensitivity maybe [came from me], believe it or not. I know people don’t think that but I’m very sensitive. So I think maybe Isaac picks up from me on that.” As for Lincoln, she said, “I don’t know where Lincoln gets his personality from, ‘cause it’s not me and it’s definitely not his dad.” Since Lincoln’s dad is Javi, and she and Javi aren’t exactly on good terms right now, there’s no wonder she didn’t want to attribute her son’s bubbliness to her ex.
Of course, no matter how cute the boys are, there are going to be some difficulties when it comes to raising them. Kailyn was ready to dish on those, as well. “[The] most challenging, I think, [is] time management right now ‘cause in the mornings when I’m getting them to school or when I’m picking them up from school, Isaac and Lincoln go to school in opposite directions, and then I have the baby. So now if the baby’s napping then I have to wake him up to get in the car to go get the kids, so that’s pretty hard.”
Needless to say, there are rewarding aspects, too. For Kailyn, it comes down to having threeboys. “But the best part is, I feel like, no child loves their mom like a boy loves their mom, so I get three times that,” she said.
Between three boys, three different custody arrangements, and being a reality star, Kailyn doesn’t get a lot of downtime. She says, “Lincoln’s with his dad 50/50, and then Jo is with Isaac almost 50/50. So even when they’re with their dads, I still have the baby pretty much by myself. So, I mean, I’m not really getting sleep.” Her solution? Coffee. “Coffee fuels the soul,” she says, “and that’s what’s working for me right now.”
