Rumors have been circulating for a month or so that Teen Mom 2 star Kail Lowry is pregnant. As faithful Roundup readers know, The Ashley will not write about rumors until she has reliable information.
However, now The Ashley can exclusively confirm that the rumors are true. Kail confirms exclusively to The Ashley that she is pregnant with her third child.
“I am about halfway through the pregnancy,” Kail confirmed to The Ashley.
Kail, who recently went through a divorce with Javi Marroquin, had previously denied the pregnancy rumors. (She confirms that Javi is not the father of the child she is carrying, but isn’t revealing who the father is at this time.)
“I know this isn’t the ideal situation, but those close to me have been very supportive and understanding,” Kail said.
Although Kail had said when she was with Javi that she didn’t want to have another child, she says she had a change of heart after the divorce.
“After seeing how little support I had during [my miscarriage with Javi’s baby], I truly thought I was done having kids and would finish school and focus on other things,” she says. “I started having [female] complications and was told my chances of ever carrying another baby to term were essentially cut in half.
“I realized that I did want another child eventually,” Kail adds. “I was told that as I get older, my chances of conceiving and carrying to term will be less and less. Long story short, the person I was with and I took the chance to see if I could get pregnant.”
Kail insists that she was prepared for the pregnancy, and was actually hoping to conceive.
“I have two boys now, and I wanted my kids to all be in the same age group,” Kail said. “If I wanted to have a third child, I knew it had to be relatively soon.
“I wasn’t shocked when I found out I was pregnant,” she said. “I was scared more than anything. For the first 12 weeks I checked for blood every time I went to the bathroom. I was scared to announce the pregnancy, and lose the baby.”
Kail says she’s fully prepared for ‘Teen Mom 2’ fans to react negatively but she’s excited about the baby. (For the record, she is not finding out the baby’s gender until he/she is born.)
“People are going to talk about me no matter what I do,” Kail said. “So I’m going to continue my life with people who really know and support me.”
Kail said that the pregnancy will be the topic of future ‘Teen Mom 2’ episodes, and that she will be posting more information about the pregnancy on her blog.
