He's getting real! When Teen Mom 2 fans found out that Kailyn Lowry was pregnant last year with her third child, they immediately wondered who baby daddy No. 3 could be and she eventually revealed that her son Lux's father is her ex, Chris Lopez. Not much is known about Chris or his relationship with Kail besides the fact that their relationship didn't work out, but now the mysterious baby daddy is opening up a little bit about where he stands with the mother of his child — and he even admitted that he was once in love with Kail. Since he was outted as the father of her younger child, he has remained pretty elusive — until now! Keep reading to see everything you need to know about Chris!
Who is Chris Lopez?
Well, there are a lot of ways we can answer that — but he’s obviously best known as Kail’s third baby daddy, Lux’s dad, and reluctant participant on Teen Mom 2. He has never actually appeared on our favorite reality show — which, TBH, makes him even more intriguing to us. He doesn't seem to have an Instagram anymore, though he does have a Twitter account where he occaisionally talks about Lux and starts drama with Kail.
How did Kail and Chris meet?
The two have always been ambiguous when it comes to the specifics of their relationship, but they have admitted they were friends before they started sleeping together. It would appear they met at college, as they were both students at Delaware State University (go Hornets!).
Where do Chris and Kail stand today?
Chris and Kail are “co-parenting” little Lux — Chris made the confession on Twitter. He shared the truth bomb on March 30 when a fan asked "Did you ever love Kail? Do you guys have a good co-parenting relationship for Lux? He's really cute by the way." Chris shockingly responded, "Yea... and we’re co-parenting." Fans were shocked to hear that he once loved his baby mama, which means their relationship was deeper than we knew.
For her part, Kail made it clear that she's not into Chris, thanks to the way he treated her during their short relationship. During the Season 8 reunion special, Kail revealed that Chris had cheated on her shortly after she got pregnant with their child and even though he was there during Lux's birth, she hadn't spoken to him in about two months and that he hadn't reached out to check on their son. But according to Chris, he has been involved in his son's life since the day he was born. Even though it's hard to tell who is telling the truth about their relationship, one thing is for sure — there is no chance that Kail and Chris will ever reconcile and get back together because, according to Chris, Kail "hates" him. And it seems like that part is true, especially after Kail confronted Chris on Twitter in April when he said, "I’ll look dead at you and laugh LOL." Kail must have thought it was about her because she responded, "You couldn’t look me in the eye if you tried." However, Kail has recently invited him on her podcast to hash everything out. We hope he does it!
