"Teen Mom" star Kailyn Lowry is preparing to have her second baby with Chris Lopez, but she revealed during a recent Instagram Q&A that she won't be letting the baby's father be present at the birth. She explained that she made the decision for her mental health and for giving her kids consistency in their lives, and having Lopez there would be detrimental to both of those things.

"My mental health and CONSISTENCY in my sons’ lives are more important than he said/she said," she wrote. "As their mother, I know in my heart I’m doing what I believe to be best. I’m sorry if everyone disagrees. … Why would I make the call to someone who has not been helpful, consistent, empathetic or compassionate for the entire 9 months? Says he doesn’t care but thinks he should be included in the birth? Make it make sense."

Lopez took to Instagram Live to address not being at his child's birth, saying that he has stayed out of the way during Lowry's pregnancy. "It is what it is at this point. I can’t stress it, bro. … It ain’t up to me," he added.

She went on to say that she also just prefers to have less people in the room when she's giving birth.

"I have had a birth where friends and family were present and I’ve had births where it was just the father and me," she said. "I like silence during contractions and I don’t love seeing people immediately after birth."

Lowry added that she isn't going to let fans on social media "tell me what I should or shouldn’t do based on what you see on IG Live or based on what I say or even what I say on the show."

During her "Coffee Convos" podcast earlier in the week, Lowry revealed that she is going to have no more than six kids. Her forthcoming child will be her fourth.

She shares 2-year-old Lux with Lopez and is also mother to sons Isaac, 10, and Lincoln, 6, whom she shares with exes Jo Rivera and Javi Marroquin.

“I just feel like, I’ve said it before, I’m sure these people are sick of hearing me say it, but I just didn’t have siblings and, like, family before. And so, like, having a big family was always — I don’t want to say always but since I started having kids — I think I always wanted my kids to have siblings,” Lowry said.
