The Untold Truth Of Kailyn Lowry

Kailyn Lowry is a TV personality who rose to fame first through MTV's 16 and Pregnant, followed by a long tenure on the Teen Mom 2 franchise. As the names of these shows confirm, Kailyn is a mother and a devoted one at that!

So, how many kids does Kailyn have? She's the proud mama of four boys. According to People, Kailyn shares her first son, Isaac Elliot, with ex Jo Rivera. She shares her second son, Lincoln Marshall, with ex Javi Marroquin. She shares her third son, Lux Russell, with ex Chris Lopez. Kailyn welcomed her fourth son, Creed, on July 30, 2020, whom she also shares with Lopez, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Kailyn has been in the public eye since she was a teenager and seems comfortable sharing her life with an audience. She's publicly talked about co-parenting with her ex, Javi, and spoke candidly about her baby's father Jo's family. We love that she's so open and honest! While Kailyn is thriving as a mom and TV personality, there's so much to know about this remarkable woman.

Kailyn Lowry's relationship with her parents wasn't the easiest

Kailyn Lowry has spoken about her tough childhood and her estranged relationship with both her mom and dad. According to The Hollywood Gossip, Kailyn's mother suffered from alcoholism and the two "seldom have any contact." When Kailyn became pregnant with her first child, Isaac, her mother would not support her, so Kailyn moved in with the family of her son's father, Jo Rivera, per the outlet.

As a child, Kailyn knew even less of her father, who wasn't in her life while she was growing up. According to In Touch Weekly, in 2018 Kailyn tweeted, "The week of Thanksgiving 2009 was when I met my dad for the first time... and even though we haven't met again. That was an important time in my life." Per the same outlet, Kailyn elaborated, "I met my sperm donor for the first and last time on 16 & Pregnant. I was 17-years-old and I never looked back. He doesn't reach out and neither do I."

Despite these experiences, Kailyn slays as a mom. Her ex, Chris Lopez, jumped on social media in 2018 to gush about how great she is with their son, Lux, but also her other kids. He wrote (via a later article by In Touch Weekly), "Sitting back, I got a lot of respect for his mother. Raising not only my son but her other boys as well. I don't know how she does it lol." It's clear Kailyn knows what she's doing with her boys!

Kailyn Lowry launched a career so much bigger than MTV

Kailyn Lowry knows how to keep busy. In fact, the MTV personality has launched an empire of side-hustles. The mom-of-four has written multiple books, including A Letter of Love, Hustle and Heart, Pride Over Pity, and a kids' book, Love is Bubblegum. According to her website, Kailyn is a New York Times best-seller.

Kailyn also runs the podcast Coffee Convos with fellow host Lindsie Chrisley, a reality star from Chrisley Knows Best, where the two women dish about motherhood, life in front of the camera, and more. Additionally, Kailyn uses Instagram as a way to connect with her nearly 4 million followers. She frequently posts paid sponsorship and ads, including one for placenta encapsulation following the birth of her youngest son, Creed.

According to The Sun, Kailyn also founded and runs a CBD oil infused hair line called Pothead Haircare, which she runs out of her home in Middletown, Del. In August 2020, per In Touch Weekly, Kailyn jumped on Instagram Stories to answer a fan who asked the mom-of-four, "Does having a fourth blessing make a difference on how exhausted you are?" Kailyn responded, "I've been hanging in there. But I am tired today."

We bet you're tired, Kailyn. Look at all you do. Way to go, mama!
