It's been over a year since Teen Mom 2 mainstay Kailyn Lowry welcomed her third child, a boy named Lux.
Kailyn never had much of a relationship with Lux's dad, and yet, reports that she's still in love with Chris Lopez continue to make their way across the social media landscape.
In a recent interview with In Touch, the always-candid, zero-you-know-whats given Kail opened up about Lopez in surprising fashion.
Kail, Chris, and Little Lux
After a tumultuous year, it looks as though Lowry and Lopez have finally reached a co-parenting arrangement that works for both of them.
Photos from Lux's first birthday show Kail and Chris working together to make the day as memorable as possible.
Kailyn obviously doesn't need anyone's help in raising her three boys, but for obvious reasons, she would like her sons to have healthy relationships with their fathers.
Doing Her Best
And so, Kail has done everything in her power to work through her differences with Chris for the sake of baby Lux.
And ... It's Working?
Fans are overjoyed to see that Kail and Chris are back on good terms with one another -- but make no mistake, the relationship between Lowry and Lopez remains intensely complicated.
Kail discussed her feelings toward Chris in a recent Teen Mom 2 special entitled Secrets Revealed. And some fans were downright floored by what she had to say ...
Still In Love
"We didn't speak for eight months & I'm still in love with him," Kail said of her mixed feelings toward Chris.
"In a way I hate him, because I feel like I really gave my all to him and I didn't get that back," Kail added.
"But then on the other hand, it's like I want to thank him because I learned that I am capable of loving someone and like, truly, being faithful and committed in a relationship," Lowry continued.
An Unfair Comparison?
From there, Kail compared her affection for Chris to her feelings toward her previous baby daddies. And many fans felt that she crossed a line by doing so.
Letting It All Out
"And it's sad, because I have kids with Jo [Rivera] and Javi [Marroquin] as well, but I just didn't love them the way I loved Chris," she said.
On Twitter, fans were quick to dismiss Kail's declaration of love as childish or desperate, with many pointing out that she was with Chris for a a very short time -- too short a period, they say, for her to differentiate love from profound infatuation.
She's ... Quite Hung Up on This Guy
"I don't think I'll ever settle down in a real relationship," Kail continued. "The one relationship that I gave my all in completely f--ked me up and I'm still in love with Chris."
A Mutual Feeling?
The question now, of course, is whether or not Chris has any of the same feelings toward Kail. Sadly, it seems he does not ...
In a clip that aired during the Secrets Revealed special, viewers were reminded of just how indifferent Lopez seems to be toward his baby mama.
A Deadbeat In the Making
The clip showed a pregnant Kail undergoing an ultrasound and complaining about her inability to get in touch with Chris.
A Dark Time
"He won't even pick up the phone if he's with another girl," said a distraught Kail to her friend Sterling.
Turning Things Around
While it seems unlikely that Kail and Chris have a romantic future together, they've worked hard to forming a platonic friendship for the sake of their son.
Props to Kail
"Sitting back, I got a lot of respect for his mother," Lopez recently gushed about Kail on social media. "Raising not only my son but her other boys as well. I don't know how she does it lol." It sounds like that respect is mutual.
