The "Teen Mom" alum recently announced that her sixth and seventh babies were here, and then in drips and drabs, shared information about their birth, being in the neonatal intensive care unit, and her babies' names.

In a recent viral TikTok video, Lowry shares the reasons she chose Verse for her sixth son and Valley for her first and only daughter.

"Verse came from Iverson which is a name that Lincoln recommended, obviously would be on his list because he's a huge basketball fan," she said. "And for Valley, I moved when I was a kid to the Lehigh Valley, and I know everyone who lives in the Lehigh Valley is gonna be like, oh no, that's not where she's going. It is."

Lowry explained that living in the Lehigh Valley, located in Northeastern Pennsylvania, "shaped a big part of who I am." She credits that for being where she's at today.

"And so, I really liked Valley, and I felt like it was not super different. It still was a name that you could grow with, it wasn't too weird," she said. "Now we have Isaac, Lincoln, Lux, Creed, Rio, Verse and Valley."

She then explained that she's not fond of any possible nicknames for Valley, but if she chooses to be called Val when she gets older, "that is her choice."

Many of Lowry's followers dropped into the comment section of her explanation video to share their thoughts on the twins' names. Some fans from the Lehigh Valley shared what they thought of Valley's name.

"Lehigh valley!🙋🏻‍♀️. Yep, I’m here and here for it," one person wrote. Another added, "As a fellow lehigh valley native, I immediately thought that's where you got the name from! Beautiful names!"

Kailyn Lowry Recently Shared A Draft Video Of When Valley Was In The NICU

In a recent TikTok video captioned, "These drafts have me in my feelings all over again," Lowry shares some real feelings and thoughts about how tough it was when Valley was in the NICU after Verse was released.

She explained that it was day 14 with Valley in the NICU, and with six kids at home and the hospital being an hour away, it was a tough experience. Nobody under 18 is allowed in the NICU, so at that point in time, none of the kids had met their baby sister.

"Elijah and I have been taking turns. I did get to stay overnight with her one night and I'm hoping to do that again this weekend just because it's easier than driving back and forth," she explained. "And I hate that she's left alone."

The video then jumps to when Lowry was leaving the NICU for the day. She shared that she was "trying to hold it together because she's doing better."

"But obviously that doesn't necessarily mean it's any easier leaving," she emotionally said. "She took a portion of her bottle for me before she got the rest through a tube, and stayed awake for a lot of the visit, so we're definitely making progress."

In an earlier TikTok video, Lowry shared a peek at the NICU setup.
