It’s a reality star showdown! Well, kinda. Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry was recently asked what she thinks about Kylie Jenner being a mom at 21, and she had some interesting thoughts. As in, she low-key slammed the KUWTK star for making being a young mother look “glamorous.”
“I mean, I don’t want to hate her because obviously she’s so successful,” Kailyn told Heidi and Spencer Pratt on their podcast Make Speidi Famous Again. “But when you’re that young and you have that much money and you’re able to kind of have a nanny and have a lot of help and you still do all these things, I think that shows that it’s kind of glamorous to have a kid so young.”
But obviously there are differences between Kailyn and Kylie, namely that Kailyn had her first child at 17, while Kylie was 20 and a lot better off financially when she got pregnant. “With situations like Kylie, they don’t realize that, you know, she has millions of dollars and she has a ton of help and she, you know, she can still go out and party and do all these things,” Kail continued. “So I think that makes it look slightly glamorous.”
On the flip side, she doesn’t think that Teen Mom made having a kid young look exciting and fun to young followers like Kylie’s. However, she also acknowledges that that isn’t Kylie’s fault, either.
“I mean, she didn’t ask to be a role model,” said Kail. “It’s so hard because obviously I don’t want to mom-shame her at all, but just looking at the different scenarios, they’re just completely different. So it’s weird. But really, nobody should look up to us in that aspect. I don’t know.”
