Despite doubts that Kailyn Lowry's third baby daddy, Chris Lopez, would be in the picture, it appears he's had a change of heart. After giving birth to their son on Aug. 4, the Teen Mom 2 star has acknowledged that her former flame has been involved, even "helping with diapers and late night feedings." Recently, the mother-of-three shared the first pic of Chris with Baby Lo on Instagram and now the two are even publicly flirting on Twitter. Does this mean they're destined to get back together?! Watch the video below to see the flirty — albeit awkward — exchange.
Although Chris has "seen my lil man almost every day," he still has no interest in being filmed. A source close to the pair exclusively told Hollywood Life, "Chris continues to not want to be on the current season and he is avoiding the cameras around Kailyn and the baby for now." They added, "He does not want his child to know him as a reality star. Despite the repeated offers for money by the network, Chris prefers to keep a low-profile when the cameras are rolling. Chris is around, however, and helping with the baby." We're so happy to hear!
However, a report surfaced last month that stated the first-time dad was vying for custody of the newborn. A source previously told Hollywood Life that Chris' mother encouraged him "to apply for full-time custody of her grandchild. Chris has no desire to try and take his kid away from Kailyn, but his mom is concerned about visitation rights." This allegedly doesn't sit well with Kailyn, who "is so shocked and disgusted that Chris would even consider trying for custody; it’s unbelievable to her," a second insider told the outlet. Yet if this recent flirting is any indication, it seems like these two are putting their differences aside for the sake of their son!
Unfortunately, any chance for a romantic reunion is out of the question. In an interview with OK shortly after Baby Lo was born, she laughed, "There's no dating for me right now. I think that's out of the question." As for whether or not she'll ever get back together with Chris specifically, she said, "I am not really thinking about that. I just want to focus on the new baby and getting the other boys adjusted to having the baby in the house." Well, she didn't say "no"!
