Teen Mom 2 fans know all about Kailyn Lowry's alcoholic mother, absentee father, pregnancy at 17, and tumultuous relationship with Jo Rivera.
That's a tough enough upbringing - too tough for most of us to handle, no doubt - but it was even more traumatic than we ever imagined, Lowry reveals.
In her new tell-all, Pride Over Pity, Kailyn Lowry confesses that she lost her virginity to her first boyfriend in eighth grade ... outside on the street:
“The concrete sidewalk had no summer warmth. Suddenly, my pants and underwear were pulled down. Our movements and his touch were unromantic."
"When it was over, I ran home, blood trickling down my leg.”
Now a 22-year-old mother of two, the Teen Mom 2 star says that today, she realizes that back then, she was far too immature for such a big milestone.
“I was too young to understand that I wasn’t ready, physically or emotionally, for sex,” she writes. “I believed then that I had to have sex to keep up with my friends.”
The young Lowry’s sexual experiences only grew scarier.
