Kailyn Lowry on Teen Pregnancy: “Nobody Ever Warned Me of the Struggles”
When it comes to co-parenting, the struggle is real and no one knows this better than Kailyn Lowry. Teen Mom 2's blonde bombshell shares custody of her first son, Isaac, with his dad, Jo Rivera (aka Nerd In A Cool Kid's Body), and splitting time isn't always easy.
While Kailyn has Isaac all to herself for most of the school year, it looks like Jo makes up for lost time with his son thanks to a solid six-week summer bonding session. That's right, Kailyn and Isaac were apart for more than a month, but fear not — they've finally reunited!
"After 6 long weeks of FaceTiming nearly every day I finally got my baby back!" Kailyn posted to Instagram along with a photo of herself and Isaac cheesin'. This girl also took a moment to chat about teen pregnancy, explaining that she still deals with the repercussions of having unprotected sex as a teen.
"Nobody ever warned me of the struggles I would face when I decided to have sex, let alone become pregnant," Kailyn mused. "Sharing time between parents cannot be easy for a child and I know first hand how hard it is on myself and my family. All I can hope now is that other young couples (& hopefully my own kids) will learn from my decisions by doing better for themselves."
Words of wisdom right there. It can't have been easy for Kailyn to give up time with Isaac for a month and a half, but we're sure this little dude had a fabulous time with his dad!
