Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 left me with more questions than answers when it comes to the state of affairs for Kailyn Lowry, Briana DeJesus and Jenelle Evans. It seems like everything is always up in the air and nothing is ever resolved in their lives.
Starting with Kail, the ups and downs with ex-husband Javi Marroquin continue and ever since he filed for child support, they have been down. Despite the tension, Kail claims she is doing her best to make sure he sees the boys but when he can’t pick them up at the spot she designated, that quickly goes out the window. She decides to meet him in a parking lot that’s convenient for her but after a few texts from him, pulls off angrily and explains in detail to the boys that “Javi” (not Dad) doesn’t have the right car with car seats to pick them up so they have to come to school with her.
Teen Mom 2 is trucking along and it’s a lot of the same old same old. Kailyn Lowryand ex Javi Marroquin were on good terms as of last episode, but we all knew that wouldn’t last long and low and behold, it hasn’t thanks to Javi requesting child support. Briana DeJesus is still feeling stressed and overwhelmed that baby daddy Luis isn’t stepping up to the plate and having an upcoming baby shower doesn’t change that. Leah Messer is seeing Ali’s specialist to get some answers on her recent breathing issues and Chelsea DeBoer is guiding Aubree through her last day of first grade. Finally, we have Jenelle Evans and the never ending drama between her and mother Barb about seeing Jace. It’s not quite as bad as last week’s blow up but clearly, there are plenty of leftover feelings in play.
Starting with Kail and Javi, Kail decides that since they are cool (for now), Javi can come over and spend some time with the boys. How nice of her! She is also relieved he’s coming over because she has a lot to do. While she starts to paint the baby’s room, Javi takes Isaac and Lincoln outside and helps Isaac learn to ride his bike. It’s going great and Javi has to ask Kail to come outside to see. She agrees but tells him to make it quick. Once she sees Isaac riding, she is super excited for him and Javi dutifully runs beside him in the street, making sure he’s safe from falling.
On tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2, life is settling into a nice rhythm – Chelsea DeBoerhas more babies on the brain and Kailyn Lowry seems to have found some harmony with ex Javi Marroquin. Unfortunately, not all in Teen Mom land are settled – Leah Messer is in limbo waiting to find out why Ali has been having breathing problems, Briana DeJesus is still wary of baby daddy Luis’s intentions once the baby is here and Jenelle Evans, well, just brace yourself for another rough episode of her and mom Barb fighting over Jace. Let’s start with the good before the bad and the ugly.
Over at the DeBoer residence, Chelsea and husband Cole are setting up an adorable monthly marker photo shoot for baby Watson while Aubree helps. He is getting so big and he sure is cute, making Chelsea admit that she has an official case of baby fever. Cole is game for more and says he’s ready when Chelsea is ready. Chelsea floats the idea of right now and Cole doesn’t even flinch – he’s fully on board if that’s what Chelsea wants to do.
If you’re a Teen Mom 2 fan (or not), you likely saw the unintended reveal of Kailyn Lowry’s pregnancy news as it happened on Twitter, courtesy of fellow cast mate, Jenelle Evans. Tonight you get to see what happened behind the scenes. Well, whatever Kail is willing to show, that is.
Kail maintains that she didn’t announce her pregnancy on social media because she wanted control of her own story and more importantly, she hadn’t passed the 20 week scan to make sure everything is ok. I can respect that –while she did sign up for a reality show, I do think some things are a given when it comes to privacy and pregnancy is one of them. Too bad Jenelle did not get the memo on that one and tweeted Kail congrats on her third pregnancy, blowing her whole cover. Naturally, Kail was pissed and wanted to get to the bottom of it. Jenelle said the MTV crew told her but when Kail confronted them, she decided that was unlikely she’s right but more on that in a second.
Tonight’s episode of Teen Mom 2 brings a lot less drama than the last few episodes, but the moms with big decisions looming are starting to run out of time.
Our first case is Briana DeJesus, who is now 24 weeks pregnant and trying to decide if she wants to give her baby up for adoption. Baby Daddy Luis still isn’t on the same page and is firmly against it but Briana pushes forward with meeting an adoption case worker anyway. Briana hopes getting more information to bring back to him will help to slowly change his perspective but it sounds like a lost cause – Luis wants none of it and Briana needs to make a decision soon, one way or another.
On Teen Mom 2, it’s another day, another baby. Or court case, either one would work for this crew. Kailyn Lowry has both – a new pregnancy and she’s heading to court with ex Javi Marroquin to get her emergency Protection From Abuse (PFA) enforced for an extended period of time. Chelsea DeBoer is also dealing with mediation with Adam Lind but it gets side tracked when he tested positive for drugs. Leah Messer is neither in court nor having a baby and is just trying to keep up with school and cheer practices while Briana DeJesus is dealing with Nova starting to notice she’s biracial. As for Jenelle Evans, she is fresh off a weekend away getting engaged to David Eason and ready to move into their new home soon.
Congratulations are in order! Kailyn Lowry gave birth to her third child this weekend, another baby boy!
The Teen Mom 2 star confirmed the news with a retweet of a post by Radar Online. She gave birth yesterday morning and is now the proud mom of 3 sons. She shared on Twitter that she hasn’t settled on a name for her baby boy just yet, referring to him as “Baby Lo” throughout her pregnancy. The baby’s father is Chris Lopez, but we’re unsure if the two are back together at this point or not.
