Hands up if your plans for the week consists of eating donuts and reading Kailyn Lowry's debut autobiography, Pride Over Pity. We're right there with you. This Teen Mom 2 star's book has only been on sale for a few days and it's already in the Amazon’s Top 100, so you better believe it's a page-turner.
Kailyn's currently in Los Angeles promoting Pride Over Pity with her husband, Javi Marroquin, and their baby, Lincoln Marshall, and it looks like they're having a blast. Check out this sweet family portrait that Kail posted to Instagram! The only thing missing? Kailyn's first son, Isaac, who stayed behind — presumably with his dad, Jo Rivera.
Kailyn and her family look picture-perfect in the City of Angels, but — as those of you who have read Pride Over Pity know — Kailyn's life hasn't always been so easy. This MTV star has been through so much, from homelessness, to unplanned pregnancies, to health scares with Isaac — who suffered from seizures when he was an infant.
"It [happened] in my lap. And that was the first time I had ever been in an ambulance in my life," Kailyn recently told OKMagazine.com. "And I just didn’t know where to go to for support because my mom has been in and out and then Jo was always at work, so I didn’t really know who I could count on to be there for me. When you have kids, they become your world. So I just felt like, was it something I did? Was it something that could have been prevented in the future? It was so hard."
Isaac's since grown out of his seizures and is currently as healthy as a horse, and Kailyn has been an amazing mother to him — which is impressive considering that she didn't exactly have a role model in her own mother, Suzi.
"I learned what mother I don’t want to be," Kailyn explained. "I learned how to do things differently than my mom did, probably the complete opposite. But I actually also learned that now I have closure and I understand people are who they are."
Sounds like Kailyn has grown a lot since the events in Pride Over Pity. We can't wait to see where her life takes her next!
