Teen Mom 2’s Kailyn Lowry Calls Out Kylie Jenner and Says She is Glamorizing Being a Young Mom
Kailyn Lowry has a bone to pick with social media mogul Kylie Jenner. Lowry feels that Jenner is making being a young mom look “slightly glamourous."
The teen mom star spoke on Heidi and Spencer Pratt’s podcast, “Make Speidi Famous Again," and shared her views on how Jenner portrays being a young mother, “I mean, I don’t want to hate her because obviously, she’s so successful. But when you’re that young and you have that much money and you’re able to kind of have a nanny and have a lot of help and you still do all these things, I think that shows that it’s kind of glamorous to have a kid so young.”
Kailyn who is now 26 had her first child at the age of 17. She went on to say, “I mean, she wasn’t a teenager. Obviously, it’s slightly different … I would not agree that our show makes it glamorous, but with situations like Kylie, they don’t realize that, you know, she has millions of dollars and she has a ton of help and she, you know, she can still go out and party and do all these things. So I think that makes it look slightly glamorous."
The MTV reality star took a step back during the interview and instead of attacking Kylie’s decision to have a child at the age of 20 tried to understand where Kylie is coming from. “But also, I mean, she didn’t ask to be a role model. It’s so hard because obviously, I don’t want to mom-shame her at all, but just looking at the different scenarios, they’re just completely different. So it’s weird. It’s hard because how do you look at the situations and you’re, like, ‘OK, that’s glamorous, that’s not glamorous.’ But really, nobody should look up to us in that aspect. I don’t know.”
Kylie who is now 21 welcomed her daughter Stormi Webster with beau Travis Scott in February. As busy as the makeup mogul is with her work a source close to the reality star says Jenner is “a very hands-on mom” and is “very involved” with raising her daughter.
