One big happy family! Er, at least that’s what it looks like. Kailyn Lowry took to Instagram on Sunday, Aug. 5 to share a sweet snap on Lux’s birthday — and her baby daddy, Chris Lopez, made the pic! “Happy FIRST birthday to my baby… who’s not a baby any longer. I love you,” the Teen Mom 2 star captioned the shot.
Fans were surprised to see the former couple getting along, especially considering there’s been a lot of drama between the two over the past year. “Awe glad Chris was there! Happy Birthday, Lux,” one person commented. Another added, “So good to see a family picture ?? love it,” while a third chimed in, “Such a beautiful baby boy. Seeing both of you by his side makes my heart so happy. This little boy doesn’t know just how lucky he is yet. Happy First Birthday, Lux!!” A fourth, however, was a bit more skeptical. “She’s just glad Chris is finally in one of her pics lol.”
During a recent episode of the hit MTV show, Kail accused Chris of being an “Instagram dad” — aka someone who posts photos of their child but doesn’t actually parent them. In response, the father-of-one clapped back, “Instagram parent” before adding, “F–K Teen Mom 2” and “the nerve of the bird in the driver seat.”
On Aug. 2, the mother-of-three took to Instagram Stories to share a video of her oldest son Isaac’s newly redecorated bedroom and the caption read, “Thank you, @chrisxlopezz.” Hmm… Not to mention, Kail seemingly alluded to having a joint birthday party a few weeks ago. “I was going to have a Coco theme party for Lux, but Chris and I decided to change it last minute,” she tweeted.
Let’s also not forget that Kailyn once admitted she had strong feelings for her third baby daddy. “I believe Lux’s dad was my first true love… I know, weird, when I had two kids with two other people,” she revealed during a Q&A on her blog on June 22. “But this is my life. This was my first REAL heartbreak, where I loved someone and was IN love with someone. And I felt so abandoned during such a vulnerable time.” Well, it seems like he’s trying to be there for her now, so maybe there’s a possibility of reconciliation!
