Another Teen Mom, Kailyn Lowry, is pregnant again: congratulations?

I don’t pay as much attention to the Teen Mom 2 cast as I do to the original Teen Moms. I watched the first couple of seasons of Teen Mom, got too invested in the girls and ended up disappointed in everyone except Catelynn, the only Teen Mom who gave her baby up for adoption. (Maci also seemed to have it together, but I didn’t get why she got so hung up over her dolt of a boyfriend, Kyle. He was so dumb!)

None of the original Teen Moms have had second pregnancies after they shot to fame, which is surprising, but one castmember from Teen Mom 2, Leah Messer (now Calvert), welcomed her third baby last month. (Leah also has two year-old twin daughters.) We’ve also heard rumblings from Teen Mom 2′s Jenelle Evans about an alleged pregnancy and miscarriage with her felon husband, although Jenelle has bipolar disorder and is generally off the rails. Many people suspected she staged all that for publicity. (There are rumors that Teen Mom 2 could be canceled due to how Jenelle has become a major liability.)

Reports claim that Teen Mom 2′s Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with her second baby at the ripe old age of 21. She’s expecting with her husband of about six months, Javi Marroquin. She also has a three year-old son with an ex boyfriend:

Kailyn Lowry is ready for baby No. 2! The Teen Mom 2 star is expecting her first child with husband Javi Marroquin, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

“Kail is pregnant,” a source confirms to Us.

Lowry, 21, tied the knot with the U.S. airman back in September after a year of dating. The MTV starlet is already mom to son Isaac, 3, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera.

“They are overjoyed to give Isaac a sibling,” a second insider tells Us. “Kail is thrilled!”

Lowry, who recently revealed she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, is planning a second, larger wedding celebration with her husband in the future. But the Teen Mom 2 star announced on March 12 that they decided to postpone the party until 2014.

“Looks like we’ll be pushing the wedding back an entire year,” she tweeted. “Just not in our budget this year like we planned. Taxes.”

Lowry has yet to comment on her second pregnancy, but tweeted Tuesday, March 26 that she’s “just happy.”

I just spent some time looking through Kailyn’s twitter account. Compared to Jenelle Evans especially, Kailyn seems pretty normal and “nice” judging from what she tweets. A couple of months ago, Kailyn did an interview with Starcasm in which she revealed that she has bipolar disorder and takes medication for it. I worry that she won’t be able to continue her prescription when she’s pregnant. Also, if she can’t afford a big wedding now how is she going to afford to have a baby? I guess it’s not such a big expenditure at once, and these girls do make way more money than they’re allowed to disclose.

As I’ve said in the past, this show gives these young women a real incentive to have additional babies, and drama, to create story lines. Given how much turbulence they already have in their lives, it’s hard to know what’s real and what’s being played up for the cameras. Congratulations to Kailyn and Javi, and I hope their baby is happy and healthy. They look like a sweet couple, they just seem so young to me, especially to be having kids, but that ship has already sailed.

    She’s 21 now and married. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal, really.

    • Kasia says:

      No big deal for me either. Having babies at 21 used to be completely normal not so long ago.

    • Annie says:

      Because it’s not what it used to be. Do you think her man is equipped to handle the responsibility of providing for a family? What is going to happen when Teen Mom is over? Do you think the marriage will last?

      • judyjudy says:

        Those are great questions that should probably be asked of ANYONE who gets married and/or has babies.

        My point is a 21 year old getting pregnant by her husband isn’t really scandalous or newsworthy. It’s just sort of…Middle America.

  2. Naye in VA says:

    Eh good for her. She always seemed pretty put together especially considering her situation and being pretty much consistently on her own.

  3. clare says:

    It sounds more like they were planning to pay for a big wedding, but now she’s pregnant they’d rather use the money to prepare for the baby…
    Nothing wrong with that?

    • jess says:

      Agreed! My boyfriend and I can easily afford our soon to be baby, but throwing a big party for a wedding? Not so much…it’s all about priorities, and right now getting ready for the baby is the priority, not a wedding or a big party…

  4. Cazzee says:

    Feel sorry for the kids.

    Having a mom who is bipolar can be hell…

    • Hakura says:

      At least in her case, it sounds as though she’s being responsible where the mental illness is concerned, knowing she needs medication & making sure she’s using it. There are so many who deny a problem, or don’t take it seriously, which is awful.

  5. Mary says:

    This isn’t so much a comment on her. It’s more of an observation on the Teen Mom show itself. So the point of the show is to follow these girls around and show other young women how hard it is to be a Teen Mom. Yet, some of the girls are now showing up in the news all the time and that one even had a crapton of plastic surgery. So am I wrong in thinking that the only thing that these shows teach girls is that they can get famous (relatively) if they have a kid?

    • Umlaut says:

      I don’t know — all I see is the turmoil, stress, constant moving, relationship instability, etc. But then, I am much older than these girls and did things in the traditional order (university, work, marriage, kids). Maybe a fifteen-year old sees glamour and fame when they look at these girls, but I think an older audience sees a cautionary tale.

      • jess says:

        Unfortunately, it’s the 15 year olds, not the older generation that need to see the cautionary tale.

  6. MG says:

    She’s always worked her ass off. School, work and raising a baby. All without the support of a family. She doesn’t always handle things the best way but she by far is the most put together one.

    • Chicagogurl says:

      Agreed MG. I never thought she was that great at conflict resolution and she liked to stir the pot, but joe was difficult too. She worked her butt off and who can blame this girl for wanting the family she never had.

  7. serena says:

    Another with bipolar disorder? Why don’t anybody check them out -health wise- before putting them in a show?

  8. murphy says:

    Kail is nice and she’s pretty responsible but she can be a hypocrite sometimes.

  9. Bodhi says:

    Do these girls not know where babies come from? Everyone of these girls needs to save their money & get some sort of education, because that money & fame won’t last forever.

  10. Karen says:

    I’m 25 and I couldn’t imagine having one child right now, let alone two. But, she seems like a responsible mom, and I’m sure that she’ll take care of this baby just fine. I’ve watched her on the show and she definitely has some abandonment issues, with both parents out of the picture, I feel like she really wanted to create her own family to compensate.

  11. A says:

    God, I just don’t like her. She’s definitely the biggest manipulator on the show.

  12. Audrey says:

    She’s crazy. She’s probably my least favorite teen mom (I don’t count jenelle since she doesn’t see her kid much)

    She uses her kid as a weapon against her ex. He was photographed with another girl? She now wants him to have less visitation. He doesn’t want to get back together with her? She wants more child support, not just to split things 50/50. She’s lucky to have an involved dad for her son. Oh and she’s noe had 2 new guys around her kid but wants his girlfriend banned from being around her son. She won’t even meet the girl and mocked a letter the girl took the effort to write to try to get along.

    She assaulted her ex, cheated on her next boyfriend like it was no big deal. And on last night’s episode she assaulted this guy. She’s horrible and petty and immature.

    Using her kid as a weapon bugs me the most though since a lot of these girls have no dad involvement. She doesn’t appreciate her son having a dad. She always wants to just take away his visitation and up his child support

  13. Grace says:

    I have Bipolar 2 and I can confirm that she, by all means, WILL have to stop meds if she’s pregnant.
    I’ve discussed this with my doctors for future reference and, though all pharmaceuticals must be stopped, many herbal supplements are available. Many pregnant bipolar women swear by St. John’s Wart.

  14. KellyinSeattle says:

    Her chin reminds me a little bit of Jennifer Aniston’s…she’s okay, but kind of irritating. Not as irritating as Snooki, but right up there …I do like the outfit she has on the beach…

  15. Shannon says:

    She’s 21, she’s married, and she has a stable job as a dental assistant. Nothing wrong with being pregnant. That said, I’m 24 and I still feel way too young and financially unstable to even think about having a baby. But to each their own.

  16. Jennifer12 says:

    Interesting how many of these teen mothers end up diagnosed with bipolar disorder. So they’re unified by more than just their need for attention and wanting to have a baby to fill a void- aren’t some of those hallmarks of issues?

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      Many of them have become mothers before they were old enough to receive a firm diagnosis. I was almost 26, but then again, if I had so much as had a friend who was a boy before university she would’ve ripped my arms off and beat that notion out of my head. Immigrant mothers aren’t always the most moderate.

  17. Tandy says:

    If only these morons could apply the same planning and budgeting they muster for their weddings to birthin’ babies. Like a lot of teens and young women who become pregnant before they are emotionally or financially able to provide for a child, they use their own children to compensate for their personal problems and shortcomings.

  18. Kori says:

    I think her husband just joined the military? (I only follow the Teen Mom thing through sites like Celebitchy). If so, that’s two stable jobs for them plus all her medical expenses are covered. My hubby has been USAF for 20 years and a 21 year old married to an enlisted man having children is very common–there are lots of young airmen with families because of the stability in pay and benefits.
