Just when Kailyn Lowry thought baby No. 3 wasn’t in the cards for her, she got pregnant with her son, Lux. The Teen Mom 2 star recently opened up about suffering several miscarriages before she learned she was expecting.
“I had multiple miscarriages,” she revealed on her podcast Coffee Convos. “They kind of showed it on the show, but I kind of felt the same way after that. I went through a period where I’m like ‘I’m never having any more kids. I’m just going to be done, I guess. It’s not for me,'” she told fellow TM co-star, Catelynn Lowell, who also suffered a miscarriage.
“After I had time to grieve, I felt like, ‘Okay, now I’m in a place where if it happens it’s meant to be and if not then it’s not,” Kailyn continued. “And then Lux came along! So I definitely can understand and I empathize and sympathize with all of that.”
She told Catelynn and Tyler that she was proud they spoke out about the issues on television. “I give you a lot of credit for talking about it as well,” she said.
Recently, Tyler opened up about the miscarriage and admitted he was keeping it together for his wife, who checked into rehab after having suicidal thoughts. “That baby may have not been fully grown in the womb… but it was fully grown in our hearts. For every parent out there who has lost a baby… it is not your fault and it is more than acceptable and understandable to mourn the loss of that baby and take your time to grieve,” he wrote. When one fan suggested he was brave for not crying until Catelynn was in treatment, he responded, “I was holding it together for Cate, because I knew what she was going through and the support she needed was priority #1! When I got some time I was able to release all the emotions I was feeling. That’s what us men need to do for our women… be strong for them when needed.”
