As you've probably heard by now, longtime Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is pregnant with her fourth child.
And in a development that reminds us it's possible to flip a coin and get the same outcome ten times in a row ...
Many fans assumed that Kail would be heartbroken by the news, as she's spoken openly about her desire to raise a daughter.
In a recent Instagram Q&A, however, Lowry revealed that she's thrilled with the prospect of raising another boy.
The 28-year-old boss mom also admitted that she actually took steps to ensure that she would be having a girl.
How does that work, exactly?
When fan asked if Kail was "annoyed" that her fourth child isn't a girl, Lowry insisted that that's not the case.
“I’m not annoyed, LOL!” Lowry exclaimed.
From there, however, Kail admitted that she met with a gender selection specialist and discussed her options.
“But I did talk to my doctor about gender selection [at] my last [appointment],” she revealed.
At this point, it's too late to do anything about the gender of her fourth child.
Awesome as a girl would be, we fully believe Kail when she says shes's excited about welcoming another son.
She certainly has the love - and the experience - of being a boy mom.
“The kids and I are so excited to be adding another baby boy into the mix,” she wrote on Instagram.
But we also believe Kailyn is already thinking about having a fifth kid, and that this time, she might do whatever it takes to bring a little girl "into the mix."
“Looks like baby No. 5 may have to happen as well,” one fan recently joked, as noted by In Touch.
“LMAOOO, starting five basketball team coming right up.”
“It’s OK, Kail, keep trying for the baby girl if you want,” another fan wrote.
“I would do gender selection at this point,” Lowry replied.
Of course, one thing Kail has to consider is that gender selection procedures do not come cheap.
This is a fact that Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra recently learned.
The couple discusses the possibility of working with a specialist to ensure that they have a boy on the current season of Teen Mom OG.
They backed away, however, upon learning that the procedure would cost at least $18,000.
Obviously, the stars of the Teen Mom franchise are very well-off.
But 18 grand for a medical procedure that doesn't guarantee the desired outcome?
That would lead just about anyone to think twice and consider letting nature run its course.
In any event, Kail is probably happy that the conversation about her pregnancy has shifted away from the topic of her tense relationship with Chris Lopez.
Kail is carrying Chris' child, but that doesn't mean all is well between the two.
In fact, Lowry filed for a restraining against Lopez back in October -- right around the time she conceived her fourth child.
Needless to say, it's a complex situation.
But Kail is persevering, and she seems to recognize this pregnancy for the blessing that it is.
... even if she's not on the greatest terms with her ex.
Over the past few weeks, rumors of Chris cheating on Kailyn during their time together have been circulating non-stop on social media.
While we're sure it doesn't feel good to read those allegations, we doubt Chris' infidelities are a high priority for Kail at the moment.
Kail is widely considered one of the more practical Teen Moms, and these days, we're sure she's focused on her family, her financial situation, and her health.
Lowry's take on the coronavirus attracted criticism earlier this month, but to be fair, things escalated very fast.
She was addressing the crisis at a time when it was poorly understood by many and had not yet reached global pandemic proportions.
These are scary times for everybody, and it's a particularly hard time to be a single mom.
Perhaps that's why Kail has no interest in griping about the gender of her forthcoming bundle of joy.
If there's any upside to our current situation, it's that now more than ever, people are fully grateful for their health and their loved ones.
We wish Kail all the best going forward.
