Last year, when the world first learned that Kailyn Lowry was pregnant with her third child, there was much conjecture as to the identity of her third baby daddy.
By the time it was revealed that Chris Lopez was Lux's father, it was clear that Kail was smitten, but the relationship fizzled, despite her efforts to make it work.
Lopez seemed to have little interest in Kail or his own son, for that matter, and he flat-out refused to appear on Teen Mom 2.
These days, he's softened a bit and has begun spending more time with Lux.
Obviously, Kail is pleased that Lopez has stopped being an "Instagram dad" and has stepped his father game up, but is she so impressed that she's decided to give him another chance?
That's what it looks like based on Kail's latest Instagram activity...
After months of "deadbeat dad" allegations, Lopez has finally gotten more involved in his son's life. And it seems Kail might soon have the family she's always wanted.
Kailyn and Chris met while they were both attending the University of Delaware, and they were friends for a brief period before they began hooking up.
An Unexpected Development
Kail got pregnant with Chris' baby shortly after they became romantically involved, and the relationship fizzled not long after.
A Sad Time
For a while, it looked as though Lopez would have no involvement in the life of his son. During that time, he was frequently and harshly criticized by TM2 fans.
There was a time when relations between Chris and Kail were so bad that she publicly accused him of being an "Instagram dad" and spending time with Lux solely so that he could post pics on social media.
A Change of Heart
Fortunately, these days, Chris is reportedly spending more time with Lux. And it seems he might have found his way back into Kail's heart.
A New Beginning
A recent Instagram post from Kail has led fans to the conclusion that she and Chris have decided to give their relationship another chance.
The speculation that Kail and Chris might be dating again began with this photo from Lux's first birthday party.
The Scrutiny Begins
Fans were surprised not only that Kail invited Chris, but also that the two of them planned the party together.
Switching It Up
"I was going to have a Coco theme party for Lux but Chris and I decided to change it last minute," Kail tweeted at one point.
And That's Not All...
Kail also revealed this week that Chris helped her remodel the room of her eldest son, Isaac. Fans were initially baffled by the news.
Kail Claps Back
"Why did Chris help with Isaac's room?" tweeted one confused follower. "I guess the better question is why wouldn't he have helped?"
An Interesting Development...
Kail can pretend there's nothing strange going on, but Chris was never close with her other children, and the fact that he's helping with home remodeling projects is more than a little odd.
What's Really Going on Here?
Some fans weren't convinced, and assumed that Kail and Chris had simply rekindled their platonic friendship.
The Plot Thickens
But even the skeptics changed their mind during a recent Instagram Q&A, during which Kail basically confirmed that she's back with Chris.
Sex Life on Fleek
Kail tagged Chris when a fan asked about her sex life. Naturally, many took this as an indication that she and Lopez are once again sleeping together.
Lopez was quick to squash the reconciliation rumors -- or try to, anyway ...
Asked a follow-up question by a random fan, Chris took the opportunity to pour cold water on reports that he's back together with Kail.
So That's That?
Kail hinted that they're hooking up; Chris says it isn't so. Of course, he's a guy who likes his privacy, and she's spent her entire adult life in the spotlight, so perhaps it should come as no surprise that fans are more inclined to believe Lowry's version of events.
