Congratulations are in order for Kailyn Lowry.
The Teen Mom 2 star, 24, is expecting her third child, she announced on her blog Thursday.
“If you’ve googled my name the past few weeks, the speculation of so many things have surfaced – no one knows what’s true, what’s false and what really goes on in my day-to-day life. Since everyone can’t wait for the confirmation; here it goes. I am pregnant,” the post reads. “I’m sad that I should have known that people in my life would sell me out before I was ready. Like any normal person, I want it to be a happy time. I wanted this to be a private time so I could be excited while not getting chased by paparazzi and bothered with crazy headlines.”
The 16 and Pregnant alum went on to discuss her health.
“Please know this was a choice I made, I already know some won’t agree but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out. Why did I wait? I’ve had a lot of health complications leading up to this pregnancy and I was not ready to release such private information on my own just yet being that I am so high risk with this pregnancy. I didn’t want to announce just to have another miscarriage and suffer through another grief,” the post continues.
She adds: “Of course, I was filmed on the show saying I didn’t want any more kids but I’m pregnant again. I know so many will have comments on this but here’s the thing — I didn’t want to bring another child into a failing marriage. Shortly after I started having complications, the option of having more kids was almost taken away from me. When I started thinking long and hard, I knew I wanted more. This was the choice I made.”
“This is the baby I thought I wasn’t sure if I could have,” she continues. “I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay. And like I say in my book — with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything. Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait. My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited, and I hope that everyone can just be happy for me during this time.”
The MTV star is already mom to son Isaac Elliot, 7, with ex-boyfriend Joe Rivera, and son Lincoln Marshall, 3, with ex-husband Javi Marroquin.
Although she remains mum on the identity of her baby’s father, the reality star only recently finalized her divorce from Marroquin.
During a 2015 episode of Teen Mom 2, it was revealed that Lowry had suffered a miscarriage with her and Marroquin’s second baby together.
