After a year of keeping it private, Kailyn Lowry has publicly confirmed her fifth child, a beautiful baby boy named Rio. The podcaster, revealed her son was born in November 2022, joining sons Creed, 3, and Lux, 6, who she shares with Scott. She also has three additional children from her ex’s: with Chris Lopez, 9-year-old Lincoln with Javi Marroquin and 13-year-old son Isaac with Jo Rivera.
“I wanted to be able to tell my own story on my own terms and kind of share what information I wanted to share instead of being within a contractual obligation or storyline, I feel like it was ripped out from under me time and time again, I kind of feel like my hands are tied.” Kail said on the Barely Famous Podcast. “People are announcing it for me and so, at this point, I might as well just talk about it. At this point, I can at least try to do it my way.”
Kail was tight lipped about the birth, sharing the news only with family and going as far as not allowing phones at her baby shower. Despite her best efforts, rumors have been swirling on the internet for months. Kail said they “weren’t able to keep [everything] as private as we would’ve liked with the leak from the hospital and things like that.”
Kail and her husband Scott weren’t trying for a fifth child, but the form MTV reality star says “It was a pleasant surprise.”
“As chaotic as it was finding out about being pregnant again, he’s been such an incredible baby that it really was a true light at the end of a really dark year for me.” Kail said. “It was rough [last year] with the lawsuit, the depression that I dealt with and everything else. So, he has been really a joy for all of us.”
