On Thursday night, Kailyn Lowry confirmed that she’s pregnant.
The Teen Mom 2 star announced that she’s expecting her third child this summer, despite many weeks of denial over reports that stated the same basic thing.
What does her ex-husband have to say about it?
In response to the news, Lowry’s second baby daddy, Javi Marroquin, took to social media and sent his past lover a hearty message of congratulations.
That’s pretty much literally the opposite of what transpired.
Kailyn and Javi, of course, have a contentious relationship.
They are parents to a three-year old son named Lincoln; Javi is also very close to Isaac, Kailyn’s seven-year old son with ex Jo Rivera.
With the exception of a few bouts of jealousy and subsequent anger, and not being the best communicator, Javi is generally well-liked.
He has always seemed like a pretty good guy, even breaking down over the dissolution of his family on a recent episode of Teen Mom 2.
But there was talk last month of Kailyn cheating on Javi (with her new baby daddy?) and Marroquin has since slammed his ex pretty hard in public.
“I’m disgusted when I look at her,” Javi said in a recent interview.
So you can only imagine his response upon learning that Lowry really is pregnant with another man’s child, right?
Actually… you don’t need to imagine! Scroll down and take a look for yourself.
With fans expecting Javi to blow an actual gasket over social media in response to this bombshell, Marroquin instead chose to take the high road.
Or the relaxed road.
Or the This-Is-All-So-Ridiculous-And-It’s-Probably-Best-For-Me-To-Just-Keep-Quiet-For-A-Little-Bit road.
“lol, y’all aren’t getting anything from me!” the reality star Tweeted a few hours ago, including with his message a zip-lipped emoji and adding:
“it will all play out.”
Javi also made it clear that he only wants to focus on three things … and Lowry’s womb is not one of them.
“I’m focused on Lincoln, work, and Crossfit,” he hilariously wrote.
“Ask me questions about that.”
(Okay, Javi, here goes: What is The Burgener Warm-Up in Crossfit? How much should we work on our abs? What is a hook grip?)
Crossfit references – and pointless THG tangents aside – Javi did take a not-so-subtle dig at Kailyn on Instagram, however.
Not long after sending the above Tweets, he shared a photo of his sleeping son and wrote a caption that many feel was a jab at Kail:
“My son, Follow your dreams I’ll pick up the pieces for you Love, your daddy.”
In other words: Sorry your mom is such a mess, kid. But stick with me. I got ya.
In confirming her pregnancy on her official website Thursday, Lowry said that Jo Rivera was aware of her expecting state.
She never got a chance to discuss it with Javi, however.
Lowry also criticized those close to her who leaked the news to the public and insisted that this was not a mistake. She did not slip up.
She planned to get pregnant.
“Please know this was a choice I made,” Kailyn wrote, confirming her pregnancy as part of a lengthy statement, adding:
“I already know some won’t agree but I’ve been showered with support by the ones I love since I found out.”
“I’ve had a lot of health complications leading up to this pregnancy.”
“I was not ready to release such private information on my own just yet being that I am so high risk with this pregnancy.”
“I didn’t want to announce just to have another miscarriage and suffer through another grief.”
Lowry acknowledged her many quotes on Teen Mom 2, notably the numerous times she claimed she didn’t want more kids.
“Here’s the thing – I didn’t want to bring another child into a failing marriage,” the reality star added.
“Shortly after I started having complications, the option of having more kids was almost taken away from me.
“When I started thinking long and hard, I knew I wanted more. This was the choice I made.”
Via a miscarriage, Kailyn lost her baby with Javi in 2015.
The tragedy has been challenging for both her and Marroquin to get over.
Lowry is due to give birth this summer, meaning she’s about halfway through her second trimester.
She will not find out the gender prior to meeting her third child and she is yet to announce the identity of the man whose sperm fertilized her egg.
“I know this isn’t an ideal situation but I know everything will be okay,” Kailyn wrote as part of a message we’ve included below.
“And like I say in my book – with a little bit of hustle and heart, I can and I will survive anything.”
“Having another child is something I am so happy about and I just can’t wait.”
Lowry included a photo of her sonogram with her pregnancy confession.
She also wrote: “My boys are so excited, those who love me are so excited, and I hope that everyone can just be happy for me during this time.”
That’s fair, don’t you think?
There’s a lot one can criticize over the way Kaily Lowry has lived her life. But she’s pregnant. A baby is about to enter the world now.
All we can do is be supportive and hope this child – like her previous two – is raised in a stable, loving environment.
