Ever since the world learned that Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with her third child, Teen Mom 2 fans have been desperately seeking new information about her baby daddy, Chris Lopez.
For months, there was no official confirmation that Lopez got Lowry pregnant, and now that the cat's out of the bag, details about Lopez remain hard to come by.
And now it seems we may know why Lopez has been maintaining such a low profile.
From the start, it was clear that Lopez was not seeking reality TV fame.
In fact, in his one, brief appearance on Teen Mom 2, he asked that his face be blurred.
Now, it seems that Lopez wants no connection either to the show or to Kailyn.
In the past, Kailyn has complained that she'll be raising her third child on her own.
It's slowly becoming clear just how literally she meant that, as Radar Online is reporting today that Lopez will not be present at his child's birth.
We've known for several weeks that Kailyn and Chris broke up after a very brief fling, but it's beginning to look like the split was not amicable, as was initially reported.
It seems that in their first weeks apart, Chris and Kailyn planned to maintain a peaceful co-parenting relationship.
Those plans have now been scrapped, and apparently, Lopez's involvement in his child's life will be limited to financial contributions.
"In the beginning, he helped when she needed him,” a source close to Kailyn tells Radar Online.
“Then they went their separate ways.”
At this point, the relationship between Chris and Kailyn has deteriorated to the point that Lopez will likely not be in the delivery room the see his child enter the world.
“She wants to give him the opportunity to see his child being born," says the insider.
“She never said Chris couldn’t be involved with his child. She would hope he would want that, but she won’t force it or chase him to do so.”
Sadly, the tipster adds:
“Out of spite or anger she doesn’t think he will even show up for the birth. But she will tell him when she goes into labor so he can make that decision.”
