Kailyn Lowry showed off way more of her growing baby bump today than has previously been seen. The “Teen Mom 2” star was covered up for her February 4 pregnancy announcement, also keeping her bump under wraps later in the month as she revealed that her fourth baby will be a boy.
Kailyn updated her Instagram stories this week with a brief bathroom selfie – the video marked the first flesh-flashing bump display from the 27-year-old MTV face. It also came accompanied with a very amusing explanation – if you live in Delaware, you might be seeing Kailyn walking around in unbuttoned jeans.
Kailyn’s photo showed her in her bathroom and backed by a tub and an oval window bringing in natural daylight. The star had snapped herself in a bump-flaunting video as she lifted and lowered a cute tie-dye shirt in tan and white, with fans clearly seeing that Kailyn’s blue jeans were unbuttoned.
Kailyn wore her hair in a fuss-free top knot bun, with the focus clearly being on that bump. The mom of three lifted and lowered her shirt twice, also adding some text.
“Baby boy is showing off today,” she wrote.
Kailyn then revealed that both pairs of maternity jeans she’d purchased were awful, joking that fans might see her walking around in regular jeans (unbuttoned).
Kailyn is known to suffer from anxiety. The star took to Instagram just under a week ago to reveal that this pregnancy isn’t quite like the previous ones – a photo of Kailyn holding an ultrasound strip while sitting on her bed came with mentions of her inner turmoils.
“Things have been so different this time around – it’s weird knowing the sex of this baby & trying to solidify a name so he doesn’t go nameless like Lux did ? + my anxiety is through the roof. I’m scared of doing anything wrong,” she wrote.
Much like the post revealing Kailyn’s anxiety, the star’s Instagram update announcing baby #4 was a paid promotion with motherhood and fertility app, Peanut. The stunning shot of Kailyn with sons Isaac, Lincoln, and Lux earlier this month revealed that Kailyn was 16 weeks along.
“We’re confirming the news, baby #4 is coming soon! ?I’m almost 16 weeks pregnant & it’s been a rough few months this time around. I’ve had nausea, morning sickness, and absolutely no energy. ? This week I’m starting to feel a bit better and I’m really hoping it stays this way!??@Peanut has been an amazing support for me since I found out I was pregnant again. Going through nausea and morning sickness while trying to keep the news a secret can be quite isolating,” Kailyn wrote, also promoting the app.
Kailyn’s freshest headline-making stems from a suggestion that she wants nothing to do with third baby daddy (and reported baby daddy to child #4), Chris Lopez. Chris fathered Kailyn’s 2-year-old son Lux.
A source reporting to Hollywood Life stated that Lowry is fully done on the relationship front.
“They had a very toxic relationship that she had a pattern of slipping back into but Kailyn is done, she says no chance will she ever get with him again. She’s 100 percent done,” the source said.
