Teen Mom 2’s Kailyn Lowry has had a lot to juggle since giving birth to her son Isaac in January 2010. The hard-working mom now lives on her own with her 22-month old Isaac, goes to school, and works to earn money for herself and her son.
Kailyn chatted exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment about her love life, her relationship with Isaac’s father, Jo, and her latest venture, a children’s fashion line.
Check out our interview with Kailyn below!
How’s Isaac doing?
He’s good, he’s about to be two, so he’s learning a lot.
Did he enjoy Halloween?
We had a snowstorm so he couldn’t even go trick-or-treating or anything. We dressed him up but he didn’t get to go out.
It was really sweet to see Isaac and Jordan interact together on Halloween. Have the two of them really bonded?
Yeah, I would say they did.
How is your relationship with Jordan?
Right now, we’re not on speaking terms.
The Isaac Elliott Collection is so cute! What inspired you to launch a children’s fashion line?
Actually it was Jo’s brother’s girlfriend had a boutique for her daughter, and she asked for me and Jo’s permission to do something for Isaac so we just agreed. It wasn’t really even my idea.
Does Isaac model the clothes for you?
Pretty much anything that’s from his collection, he models.
Does he like modeling for you?
Yeah, he likes the camera a lot!
Does he tell you what he does and doesn’t like?
He does. If I ask him something he’ll tell me “yes” or “no,” and what he says goes!
It seems like you and Jo have come along way. How are you guys doing now?
Right now, we’re in a good place. We’re trying to co-parent for Isaac.
Jo’s parents were very supportive while you were pregnant, but when we last left you, things were a little tense. Do you still have a relationship with them?
I don’t really keep in touch with them on a regular basis, but when we do talk, we’re civil and they’re so supportive of whatever I do.
What are your plans for isaac’s third birthday?
We’re working on it!
What are your relationships like with the other Teen Moms?
I’m pretty close with all of them.
Many people say Teen Mom is their guilty pleasure. What are some of your guilty pleasures?
I really don’t know. I don’t really have any right now. I’m so busy with school, and work, and Isaac.
What are some of your favorite things to do with Isaac?
We go to Chuck E. Cheese and the park, but it’s getting colder now so there’s not much to do.
How’s school going?
It’s going, but my GPA is not as high as I want it to be. I’m working on it. I’m going to retake some classes.
Are you still living with your mom and her boyfriend?
Oh no [laughs]! I moved out like a year ago. I’m learning different things every day, but I like it so much better.
Is it harder than you thought it would be?
Honestly, I felt like I was living on my own when I was with my mom anyway so it’s kind of what I expected.
What’s up next for you?
I’m going to just keep going on with school and hopefully get my degree.
