The paparazzi were out to get photos of Teen Mom star Kailyn Lowry and her boyfriend Elijah Scott. The Sun, which published the pictures on July 29, claimed Lowry and Scott looked “tense” in the pictures.
Rumors that Lowry was expecting her fifth child with a fourth man began swirling after her ex – Chris Lopez – hinted Lowry was pregnant.
Lowry, 30, wore a blue T-shirt and black trousers and Scott, 24, wore a neon yellow shirt.
Lowry is a mother of four children. She welcomed her 12-year-old son Isaac with her high school friend Jo Rivera. Her middle son, 8-year-old Lincoln, is from her relationship with ex-husband Javi Marroquin. Lowry then had two children with Lopez, 4-year-old Lux and 2-year-old Creed.
Rumors of Lowry’s possible fifth pregnancy began to spread after he tweeted a cryptic message. “Out here we’re talkin’ y’all gonna spank me now you know ya gotta protect tummy stop it,” he wrote. The message was quickly deleted but preserved by various “Teen Mom” fan accounts online.
Lopez, 28, then took to Instagram, where he opened up about the drama that unfolded between the exes. “Someone is explaining something to me. Like what makes you, as a woman, say, ‘I’m really going to beat you up,’ knowing firstly you can’t fight, secondly, and you’re not like that,” he said.
“Granted, I understand. Your friend is in the car but why do you want him to yell for you? Now he’s going to hate you,” Lopez continued. “Make sense, Kail Lowry.”
Heavy reached out to Lowry’s rep about the pregnancy rumors but got no response.
After seeing the photos posted by The Sun, fans on Reddit were confident that Lowry would have another baby.
“Ass. This woman. Baby Daddys aren’t Pokemon, you don’t have to catch them all!” Read a comment with 100+ upvotes.
“9.5/10 I despise pregnancy speculation but Kail loves being pregnant and despite being fat she has always been tight in the stomach area (compared to me, another fat slut). Sooooo idk team boy,” wrote another.
While some people have been open about Lowry’s possible pregnancy, others have said it’s unfair to comment on a woman’s body.
“I don’t think she’s pregnant. I listen to her podcast, she is really depressed now, on meds and still in therapy. I think it’s just depression weight gain,” they said.
Though Lowry didn’t dispel the new pregnancy rumors, she said on her podcast that she probably wouldn’t have more children because she’s working on her mental health and getting the right medication.
“I think as time goes on I just don’t want kids anymore because I feel like I’m spreading myself so thin, um, and all my kids are so different ages that they all need me for different roles of her life right now,” Lowry said on the July 8 episode of Barely Famous.
At the time, Lowry said she was considering getting her hoses tied.
Lowry said that although she would like to have a girl, she would not intentionally try to have one.
“Not because I don’t want any, but this depression has really humbled me and really taught me that sometimes I have to put myself first and I can’t stay busy 100% of the time because I think my life will change someday slowed down, and I left the show and things like that, my life slowed down so much that I was forced to deal with the things I hadn’t dealt with, so I just don’t think that’s good now is time in my life to have more children,” she explained.
