Each of Kailyn Lowry’s three baby daddies presents a different set of benefits and challenges for the mother of three. Her relationship with each of them is constantly changing, and sometimes it can be hard to keep up with which of them she’s even on speaking terms with.
But of all of them, it’s safe to say that the father of her third child, Chris Lopez, is the most difficult to understand. Chris makes it a point to stay on the private side, and continually refuses to film for Teen Mom 2, meaning that almost everything we know about him comes from Kailyn.
Now, Chris himself is opening up about the mistakes he feels he made as a father. Hopefully, for Kailyn, things will be improving soon!
By the time Kailyn Lowry’s third pregnancy was coming to an end, she was hardly on speaking terms with her child’s father, Chris Lopez. Their relationship was at an all time low, and it didn’t bode well for their unborn child.
But when Lux was born, Chris eventually started coming out to spend time with his son, even if things with him and Kailyn were tense. During this time, Kailyn made it clear that Chris wasn’t stepping up as a father nearly as much as she’d like him to, and now Chris is confirming that he wasn’t there as much as he should have been.
“Do you regret not being more involved with Lux in the beginning?” someone asked Chris in a Q&A he hosted on Instagram.
“In a way, yes,” Chris wrote. “Here’s an honest moment for y’all.”
He shared, “I wouldn’t say regret but I wish I was there more for his mother while she was pregnant with him.”
“She really carried my son for nine months and I was f–kin’ up,” he added.
Meanwhile, it doesn’t seem that we’ll be seeing Chris on Teen Mom 2 any time soon.
“Chris does not want the baby to be filmed, and he’s coming to get the baby and will bring the baby back when it’s done,” Kailyn recently shared on the show. “I’m pretty sure it’s about people recognizing the baby out in public — it bothers him. I don’t know. It’s a battle I’m not choosing.”
She went on, “I want to show my life with all three of my kids, not just the older two.”
As for the Teen Mom fans, not many were very impressed with Chris’s regrets.
“This is tooootally why kail likes him so much. He’s an a** 99% of the time but 1% of the time he has nice, sincere, reflective moments like this that shows he actually has a heart. 1% is not enough kail, you should want better for yourself!” wrote user mnkeyhabs on reddit.
“Ya know if he really wanted Kail he’d be in a relationship with her and call her something else other than ‘my son’s mother’” wrote user ogsouthern. “I don’t know how Kail doesn’t see that.”
User Mickryboo agreed, writing, “This is why Kail can’t let go. He’s a complete player and knows how to dangle her on a string. At some point she’ll realise if he truly wanted her he’d be there. They’ve a child together. They’re off more than on. He could make a genuine attempt at a relationship but she’s just good enough until something better comes along.”
