When Kailyn Lowry revealed she was pregnant with her third child, she anticipated that people wouldn’t be 100 percent supportive, and reassured fans that this was a choice she made. And now, in a new interview, she opened up about why she made the decision she did.

“I think realizing the choice was almost being taken away from me made me realize I definitely wanted one more little one,” the 25-year-old blonde — who is mom to seven-year-old Isaac and three-year-old Lincoln — gushed to Cupcake Mag.

Kail was especially criticized because she famously told her ex-husband, Javi Marroquin, that she didn’t want to try for another baby after suffering a miscarriage. As she has since explained countless times, she didn’t want to bring a baby into what she perceived to be a failing marriage — not that she didn’t want more kids.

When she announced her pregnancy, the Teen Mom 2 star alluded to “female issues” that affected her decision to have more, though she’s understandably decided to keep that part of her private life private.

“Please know this was a choice I made, I already know some won’t agree but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out,” she wrote on her blog at the time.

“Why did I wait? I’ve had a lot of health complications leading up to his pregnancy and I was not ready to release such private information on my own just yet being that I am so high-risk with this pregnancy. I didn’t want to announce just to have another miscarriage and suffer through another grief.”
