Going strong or moving on? Teen Mom 2 alum Kailyn Lowry and boyfriend Elijah Scott are still going strong after they faced split rumors, her rep exclusively told In Touch. With the news of babies six and seven on the way, it seems there are more solid than ever.
Are Kailyn and Elijah Still Together?
“This is false,” she says of the rumors. “Kail and Elijah are very much still together.”
Months later, she doubled down on their relationship status when she shared a birthday tribute to her beau via Instagram Story on June 22.
When Did Kailyn and Elijah Start Dating?
The former reality star and her beau met when they moved into the same Delaware neighborhood and immediately hit it off.
“I had already bought my house and moved into my house before I knew that this was your house,” Elijah said of their chance encounter during a June 2022 episode of her “Barely Famous” podcast.
The Pennsylvania native had previously dropped hints about her new man while keeping his identity a secret for months.
“Me and my boyfriend actually send pictures of Open Vitamins that we take every morning. He will send me a picture of his and I will send a picture of mine,” Kail shared via social media in April 2022.
Do Kailyn and Elijah Share Children?
“He had to go right to the NICU,” Kailyn recalled about the “traumatic” delivery experience. “I literally got to hold him for maybe three seconds before they took him to the NICU.”
While she admitted she was “so upset” during the experience, Kailyn noted that Elijah remained calm. “I’m like, ‘He almost died.’ And Elijah’s like, ‘No, Kail. He went to the NICU,’” she said. “To me, that’s near death … It was traumatizing for me.”
Rio is set to become an older brother when his twin siblings are born! Kailyn announced in October 2023 that she is pregnant with twins, making them babies six and seven for the reality star.
“I must have got pregnant right before I left and I had no idea,” Kailyn said on her podcast when announcing the news, adding that she likely got pregnant before or during a trip to Thailand. “So when I got there, I was eating everything. My face was flushed, but I didn’t think anything of it because I was like, there’s no way. There’s no way I am.”
Why Are There Breakup Rumors About Kailyn and Elijah?
“I have a hard time in my relationships, I think, accepting a man who will provide and protect and do all of those things,” Kail said during the Tuesday, March 7, episode of “Baby Mamas, No Drama.” “I pay 100 percent of the bills at home, and I pay for all my kids. It would be very weird for me to be with someone who does those things.”
The mother of five – who also shares son Isaac with ex Jo Rivera, son Lincoln with ex-husband Javi Marroquin, and sons Lux and Creed with ex Chris Lopez – went on to say that she doesn’t “have a choice” but to take care of her own bills.
“I feel like if it was my choice to pay all the bills, and that’s how it was, it would be more of a 50/50 split,” she added.
Kail’s comments raised eyebrows as fans recalled that prior to making her relationship public, Lopez announced on his “P.T.S.D. – Pressure Talks with Single Dads” podcast that his ex’s new man had moved into her home.
“[The kids] told me that the dude lives with them,” he said in April 2022. “That kind of threw my head off, but I can’t control what [Kailyn does].”
While the trio was discussing finances, Vee told her cohost that she needs “an alpha man to just come in and be like, ‘Baby, I’m paying this,’ and that’s it.”
“You need someone that will take initiative, and I don’t think you’ve been with someone like that yet,” she added. Perry chimed in, saying, “I’m sure you’re going to find somebody amazing for you.”
