Kailyn Lowry, a one-time high school lacrosse player who dreams of becoming a dental hygienist, is the serious and stoic teen mom of baby Isaac. After her boyfriend Jo knocked her up, Kailyn tried to hide her pregnancy from her friends and family... but it didn’t take long for the secret to leak. Frequent battles with her mother left her with no place to go, so the baby daddy’s family took Kailyn in and supported her throughout her pregnancy.
Kailyn and Jo didn’t make it through the stress of new parenthood, so Kailyn eventually moved back in with her unsupportive mother. To stay as independent as possible, Kailyn juggles two part-time jobs and a full course load at the community college.
Nowadays, Kailyn and Jo now share custody of Isaac. Kailyn lives with her husband, Javi Marroquin, who's in the Air Force. They married in a small courthouse ceremony in late 2012, and are planning a traditional wedding for September 2013.
